David Pakman answers a caller asking if mass closures are overreacting to the novel coronavirus. "I am not qualified to comment," admits Pakman. Instead, Pakman says, "I am going to go by what emergency managers, doctors, etc. say."
He then says people will claim it was an overreaction if it works. He compares that logic to anti-vaxxers saying measles is rare, so we don't need the vaccine. "Well, it's rare because we've vaccines for decades," says Pakman.
The David Pakman Show is a news and political talk program, known for its controversial interviews with political and religious extremists, liberal and conservative politicians, and other guests.
