Jim Cramer is a character, that’s undeniable. The longtime MSNBC host has made a career out of being the wacky one on an otherwise milquetoast network that deals with the inner workings of our vastly complicated stock market.
With sounds effects, shouting, and extremely silly antics, Cramer has embraced this persona, and his morning rants are often low-key hilarious.
But there are times when Cramer gets a little heated, and suggests some downright draconian ideas. This week was one of those weeks.
CNBC “Mad Money” host Jim Cramer on Monday urged President Joe Biden and his administration to require vaccination for all Americans to fight the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.
Cramer suggested the military should run the vaccination efforts and said those who don’t want to get vaccinated should “be ready to prove your conscientious objector status in court.”Trending:
“With the new Omicron variant sweeping the globe, how do we finally put an end to this pandemic? How do we save lives and get business back to normal so everybody can put dinner on the table? Simple: The federal government needs to require vaccines, including booster shots, for everyone in America by, say, January 1,” Cramer outlined.
“So, it’s time to admit that we have to go to war against COVID,” he emphasized. “Require vaccination universally. Have the military run it. If you don’t want to get vaccinated, you better be ready to prove your conscientious objector status in court. and even then, you need to help in the war eft by staying home until we beat this thing.”
The suggestion was met with condemnation online, where those who espouse a belief in bodily sovereignty railed against the zany fiscal pundit.
