SEAN HANNITY (HOST): Look at Biden contemplating the idea -- idea of mandatory vaccination for people in the military. Well, what if somebody is -- for whatever reason, maybe it's a health condition, maybe it's their doctor, maybe it's, you know, maybe it's their own decision. Because I believe in medical privacy, medical freedom. I believe in -- in the idea of patient-doctor privilege, and -- and there's a lot of pressure coming from a lot of people, and a lot of moving goalposts all over the place, and -- and they have wrought this confusion themselves. This is all on them. I -- I love science. We had no therapeutics, we now have Regeneron. We have Eli Lilly. We have, you know, all the -- all the science, if you want to read it, on other therapies that -- that some people criticize, but others swear by, like Ivermectin or Hydroxychloroquine. 

You know, I can't make these decisions for people, I just urge them to -- to do their research and read. There's so much literature available online and information available online that you can be an expert in -- in a week, if you just spend an hour or two a day, reading and reading and -- and talking to, and consulting with your doctor or doctors and medical professionals you like and respect. The idea that people are trying to tell me what I ought to be telling people to do medically is a joke, because I'm not your doctor. I don't know anything about your medical condition. I -- I'm not going to practice medicine without a license, but I'm urging people to be smart, and to be safe, and to protect others that they love.
