During Tuesday’s edition of The Pat McAfee Show, New York Jets star quarterback Aaron Rodgers commented on his spat with Kansas City Chiefs tight end Travis Kelce by challenging the Taylor Swift fling to a debate over Covid vaccines.
Last week, Rodgers hilariously labeled Kelce “Mr. Pfizer” for starring in a recent advertisement telling Americans to get their Covid boosters and flu shots at the same time.
Kelce posted the advertisement to his Instagram, stating:
With my schedule, saving time is key. The CDC says you can get this season’s updated COVID-19 shot when you get your flu shot if you’re due for both. That’s why I got two shots in one stop! Ask your doctor or pharmacist if it would be right for you. You can also visit CDC’s vaccines.gov to learn more and schedule an appointment. This video is for US residents only and is intended to be viewed as it was originally produced in partnership with Pfizer. The information provided is for educational purposes only and is not intended to replace discussions with a healthcare provider.”
Kelce responded to Rodgers’ “Mr. Pfizer” label by saying he never thought he’d be “in a vaccine war” with the legendary quarterback.
On Tuesday, Rodgers clapped back, saying, “This ain’t a war homie. This is just a conversation. But, if you wanna have some sort of duel, debate, have me on the podcast. Come on the show. Let’s have a conversation.”
Rodgers continued, saying the debate should be done like the film “John Wick 4” where each competitor has “a second” assisting them.
“I’m gonna take my man RFK Jr. and he can have Tony Fauci or some other pharmacrat and we can have a conversation about this,” the future Hall of Fame player suggested.
During another portion of his interview, Rodgers laughed at the triggered response over him labeling Kelce “Mr. Pfizer” and said, “I made a tiny little joke about a guy shilling for a corrupt company and everybody kind of loses their minds.”
