Aaron Rodgers “is a liar,” says Stephen A. Smith of ESPN

Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers was under further scrutiny on Thursday for allegedly skipping questions about whether he was vaccinated against the coronavirus.

Rodgers will miss Sunday’s game against the Kansas City Chiefs after being positive. It was later revealed that he was not actually vaccinated despite telling the media in August that he was “immunized.”

ESPN star Stephen A. Smith seemed to feel betrayed over Rodgers’ situation.

“Aaron Rodgers is a liar. Period,” Smith said Thursday during “First Take.”

“He went through his teeth with a smile on his face about something very, very serious. Well, you lied about it, so what were you lying about? Lying about it. [Packers general manager Brian Gutekunst]? Lied about what happened to the Green Bay Packers? What else did you lie about? Because you did it with such ease, such fluidity. It was just very, very impressive and it was smooth.

“‘Immunized … You didn’t take the Pfizer, the Modern, Johnson & Johnson and, according to the NFL, that means you’re not considered vaccinated. You knew that but never said anything. The Packers are also guilty because they knew it. And you still addressed the media without wearing a mask. You didn’t follow NFL protocols. “

Smith mentioned Indianapolis Colts quarterback Carson Wentz wearing his mask on the sideline and while speaking to other teammates and opponents – something Rodgers didn’t seem to have done although the Packers say he followed NFL protocol while inside the training facility.

“Aaron Rodgers wanted the best of both worlds. He didn’t want to follow the protocol but at the same time he didn’t tell everyone that he was required to follow the protocol because he gave the impression that he was vaccinated. I don’t I don’t like sitting this there and say that. I love myself Aaron Rodgers. Everyone knows that. I religiously and incessantly … came to the defense of this man over and over again. But you lied, and you were cunning with it. “

It is unclear whether some kind of punishment will come on Rodgers. The NFL said it would review whether he violated league protocols.
