Weiss joined HBO’s “Real Time with Bill Maher” on Friday to express her exhaustion with the pandemic, stressing how it’s “ridiculous” the nation has not returned to normal after two years – a sentiment she said is bipartisan.
“I know that so many of my liberal and progressive friends are with me on this, and they do not want to say it out loud because they are scared to be called ‘anti-vaxx’… or to be smeared as a Trumper,” she spilled. “At this point, it’s a pandemic of bureaucracy. It’s not real anymore.”
Media pundits including CNN anchor Jim Acosta dragged Weiss for her remarks. During a segment with CNN medical analyst Dr. Jonathan Reiner on Sunday, Acosta considered Weiss a troll for even daring to disagree.
“I’m done with that attitude,” Acosta said. “She needs to understand that trolling people to own the libs is not a sacrifice.”
Dr. Reiner chimed in and encouraged Weiss to “grow up” and stop acting “like a child,” likening the situation to a kid who doesn’t want to “play this game anymore.”
“All that we’ve done is ask the public to wear a mask when you go out and about and get vaccinated,” he said. “So, I’m glad she’s done with it.”
