Trevor Noah: Moderna Chief Not a Source You Should Trust

Automatic TRANSCRIPT

Day. Trevor, Noah gets the dummy today. Now I've long said, you take Bill Mars earpiece off. You take Trevor Noah's earpiece off. John Stuart any of them. Gobert, you put them in a room with a smart man or woman who's well read, and you'll let him talk for two hours. There will be nothing left but ribbons of them. There will be cut to pieces. By anyone who knows their way around a set of facts and how to argue. They're not that bad. They're not smart. They're funny, and they have good timing, they're good comics. But Trevor Noah is a moron. Cut number 21. And while most of the world is willing to wait and see, at least one person feels comfortable about making predictions, the Moderna CEO told the Financial Times he expects the existing vaccines to be less effective against the new variant of COVID. I think it's going to be a material drop. This was on vaccine efficacy. I just don't know how much because we still need to wait for the data, but all the scientists I've spoken to are saying this is not going to be good. So on the one hand, almost all the only cron cases have been mild so far. But on the other hand, the guy who stands to gain millions of dollars from new vaccines says we need new vaccines. Huh. If we don't make a new vaccine, this disease could be with us Ferrari. I mean forever. Sorry, I was thinking of something else. Now, look, I'm not saying that the CEO of Moderna is lying. I'm not saying that at all. I'm just saying, I don't think he's the most objective source on this topic, you know? I'll wait to hear what neutral experts say about a new vaccine. People like public health officials or the CEO of Johnson & Johnson. I mean, he's got nothing a game 'cause nobody's gonna buy his vaccines either way, so I trust him. And also, if we do need a new vaccine for this new variant, it's not a big deal. All right, people. I see people online being like, we're going to get a new shot every year. There's no way. Yeah, yeah, you know what? Maybe to not die, you might need to take 15 minutes out of your year.
