Like the vast majority of Fox personalities, Dan Bongino is fully vaccinated. But like his colleagues, Bongino was more than happy to create vaccine hesitancy among his viewers and listeners.
During Monday’s broadcast, Bongino discussed his recent bout with COVID. He admitted that he was scared of the virus and didn’t want to die.
“I was afraid,” he began. “I didn’t want to catch Corona. I didn’t want to die. I’ve got kids. And I thought, alright, even if there’s a point zero 1 percent chance, like, that was a chance, you know, and I was a little bit afraid,d and then I got it. Sucked for 24, 36 hours, and then I was better, and I’m like, was that worth two years, I mean, of my life to worry about? Was it worth two years? I mean, it’s a risk-reward calculus.”
Sen. Rand Paul talks to Dan Bongino about COVID restrictions: “I don’t think it’s been about science for a long time. It’s really been about conditioning the American individual to submit to government. And it never ends. The goalposts will continue to change.” pic.twitter.com/ibvZ6nqoze

“Thankfully, I live in Florida. We got a governor who said, naw, pandemic’s over. Coronavirus isn’t over. Variants aren’t over. Pandemic’s over. The pandemic now is a state of mind. The virus isn’t. I assure you it is very real. But you living in this pandemic I’m going to lock myself down, wait to die. That’s a state of mind. It’s the Christmas season, enjoy yourselves. Be smart. Enjoy your family and build some memories. They stay with you a long time. Build some memories.”
