Author and journalist Bari Weiss is having a serious bout of COVID fatigue!
On Friday’s episode of “Real Time With Bill Maher,” Weiss told host Bill Maher that she is “done.”
“I’m done,” she said. “I’m done with COVID.”
Bari Weiss Just Wants The World To Get Back To ‘Normal’
Bari Weiss said that when the pandemic first started, she, like many others, followed the CDC guidelines to the letter.
“I sprayed the Pringles cans that I bought in the grocery store,” she told Maher. “[I] stripped my clothes off because I thought COVID would be on my clothes.”
“I watched ‘Tiger King,’” she added. “I got to the end of Spotify. We all did it.”
“Then we were told… you get the vaccine and you get back to normal,” she continued. “And we haven’t gotten back to normal.”
“And it’s ridiculous at this point,” she added. “If you believe the science, you will look at the data we did not have two years ago. You will find out that cloth masks do not do anything. You will realize you can show your vaccine passport at a restaurant and still be asymptomatic and be carrying omicron.”
“And you will realize most importantly that this is going to be remembered by the younger generation as a catastrophic moral crime,” she added.

I’m so glad people are finally saying they’re #DoneWithCovid, because I’ve heard from Covid that they’ve decided that they’re done with humans! We can go back to living a peaceful existence again!
