MSNBC commentator Katty Kay stunned viewers after bashing her own children on air Thursday, condemning them for skipping additional COVID-19 vaccine booster shots, causing even her own fear-mongering guest to correct her.
Speaking with Dr. Zeke Emanuel as a guest host on “Morning Joe,” Kay admitted that she was “shocked and appalled” when her children, ages 22 and 16, informed her they would not be getting any additional COVID booster shots. Emanuel has written several articles pushing Covid vaccines and boosters.
“I listen to that doctor and you hear how tough it is in the hospitals at the moment, and the fears of new variants, mixed with flu, that is coming on,” Kay began. “You would think that the country would respond by saying, ‘OK, we will make sure we are all up to date on all of our vaccines.’
“But I had a strange conversation with my 22-year-old and my 16-year-old last night, and I said, ‘OK, I booked you in for COVID updates, you’re both back for holidays, you’re going to get your boosters.’ And both of them said, ‘No, we don’t want to. We’ve had enough vaccines, and we don’t think we need them,'” she continued.
“I was shocked and appalled,” Kay admitted.
At first, Dr. Emanuel appeared to share Kay’s sentiment, observing that “young people think that they’re invincible.”
But even the infamous Covid scaremonger took a step back and reminded her that vaccines and boosters do not do a single thing to prevent Covid spread.
“There are only two things that really can prevent transmission of the COVID virus. One is a good mask, an N95 mask and wearing it, especially in crowded situations, on airplanes and transportation, and the other is better indoor ventilation,” he went on to say. “Unfortunately, we’ve gotten to a situation where neither of them seem to be a very high priority to reduce the transmission. And I think that’s where we’re at.”
Emanuel ultimately condemned people for placing too much emphasis on vaccines.
“Putting every emphasis on vaccines is not going to solve this problem,” he declared.
Looks like Katty’s kids were right after all!
Twitter lit up like fireworks over Ms. Kay’s truly “appalling” attack on her own kids – and how she is brow-beating them to get shots that carry far more risk than any potential benefit.
Love that Dr Emanuel basically supports the kids. The fact that she isn’t aware that her kids’ risk from vaccines boosters outweighs their benefit is mind boggling at this point. It’s her job to report on a national program and she’s shocked that her children know more about it🤦🏻♀️— PollyG (@PollyGHHC) December 29, 2022

Katy Kay is 'shocked and appealed' to find out her kids are now thinking for themselves. 😱— David Lee White (@DavidLeeWhite82) December 30, 2022
I guess that means they won't be watching her show.
