During a segment on Fox News, Gutfeld responded directly to CNN’s Brian Selter, who claimed on Sunday that more Fox News personalities should broadcast their vaccinations.
“It’s none of your f**king business!” Gutfeld said.
Stelter noted on his show that a number of anchors and personalities from other networks had spoken about getting the coronavirus vaccine.
“Why do you think we haven’t seen the biggest stars on Fox News get vaccinated or show us their vaccine selfies?” Stelter asked.
Gutfeld did not mince his words and tore into Selter after showing a clip of the CNN host’s comments.
“Holy sh*t. So virtue-signaling includes telling people to virtue signal,” Gutfeld responded.
“OK, Brian, I’ll bite. Why haven’t we made a vanity display of our vax status? It’s none of your f*cking business. And if Brian … believes personal medical info should be publicized, he can start with his cholesterol,” he said.
Gutfeld went on to suggest that Stelter was not himself the epitome of health, saying he was “overweight.”
“The World Obesity Federation found the risk of death from COVID-19 is 10 times higher in countries where the population is overweight,” Gutfeld said. “And he’s accusing us about setting a healthy example? That’s as rich as the frosting on his morning strudel. If he wants to do a fitness battle of the network stars, count me in — unless it’s a pie-eating contest.”
“Last week I called CNN the shame network. All they do is look down at Americans,” Gutfeld concluded.
He added that CNN is “pro peer pressure” and further said that Stelter’s key argument for Fox News personalities going public with their vaccines was that “everybody else is doing it.”
“You know what else are other people doing? Thirty minutes of cardio,” Gutfeld said.
“Actually, saying you should do it because other people are doing it isn’t what I would call wisdom. That’s what your worst friend from grade school says. It’s how Bob Lawson gets me to eat slugs. That, and they were delicious. I got my shot, and there’s a reason you didn’t see it. Not everything has to be made for TV,” he concluded.
Many people have believed for a long time that CNN, which calls itself “the most trusted name in news,” has acted as a propaganda wing of the Democrat Party.
On Tuesday, a new video by the investigative reporting group Project Veritas purports to show a CNN director saying that the network engages in propaganda and was determined to get Donald Trump out of the White House.
“Look what we did, we [CNN] got Trump out. I am 100% going to say it, and I 100% believe that if it wasn’t for CNN, I don’t know that Trump would have got voted out…I came to CNN because I wanted to be a part of that,” CNN Technical Director Charlie Chester said in the video.
