Radically liberal talk show host Jimmy Kimmel had a field day Thursday night over the fact that former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin had tested positive for COVID-19.
He went so far as to suggest that “these people,” which no doubt means conservatives, “only believe in science when it happens to them”.
Kimmel mocks Palin
“Do you know who tested positive for COVID? Our old lipstick on a pit bull itself, Sarah Palin, announced that she and her two children contracted the virus, ”Kimmel said during his opening monologue, before ridiculing Palin by saying it was“ almost must try to catch COVID in Alaska ”.
“It’s easier to catch a bald eagle than COVID in Alaska,” he said before targeting Palin for asking people to wear a mask he labeled “rich”.
“She traveled all the way to Texas in early May to visit a beauty salon to help the owner of that salon who went to jail for refusing to close her business,” Kimmel said, referring to a visit to Palin made his way to the Salon Á la Mode.

“She said it was her constitutional right to endanger her community,” he added. “But now that Sarah herself was bitten by the bug, she changed her tune. I love these people who only believe in science when it happens to them. “
Concluding that these types of people “only acknowledge that COVID is real” after contracting it, Kimmel added, “It’s like saying,” Now that I’ve personally heard of a bear after being mistreated, I find that her claws and teeth are very sharp. “But it’s good for her that she finally spoke up.”

Palin discusses the COVID diagnosis
This came after Palin shared her diagnosis of COVID-19 with People Magazine and said that she started when “one of my daughters woke up because she had lost her sense of taste and smell [and] immediately had a positive COVID test and was then quarantined in isolation. “
“I then saw symptoms in my son Trig, who is strangely the most enthusiastic mask wearer, and after our numerous negative tests over the year, he tested positive,” said Palin.
“Children with special needs are prone to the consequences of COVID [Trig was born with Down syndrome]If he had a high fever, he was prescribed azithromycin, which seemed to really help, and I increased the amount of vitamins I put in his pureed food, ”she added.
Palin went on to say she had some of the “bizarre” symptoms characteristic of the virus, such as a loss of taste and smell, which led her to believe that it was “unmistakable that COVID got me”.
“That day I finally tested positive – like millions of other Americans,” she said.
After saying that the coronavirus “can really knock you down,” she encouraged others to continue to be careful during this pandemic.
Palin urges Americans to be vigilant
“I strongly encourage everyone to use common sense to avoid spreading this and any other virus,” she said.
“There are more viruses than stars in the sky, which means we will never avoid any source of disease or danger. But please be vigilant, don’t be afraid, and I advise you to re-prioritize some personal time and resources to make sure they are healthy, a lifestyle that you can create. If viruses do show up, at least you have armor to fight it, ”Palin concluded.
