Bill Ackman, wealthy businessman, joins Joe Rogan, Elon Musk, and Robert Kennedy in asking for a vaccine discussion, despite claiming he is “not an anti-vaxxer”
Bill Ackman claimed that because he no longer believed in traditional knowledge, a public discussion about vaccines was his only chance to find the “truth.”
When it came to whether a public discussion about the efficacy and security of COVID vaccinations should take place, billionaire hedging fund investor Bill Ackman became involved in a bitter argument with some of his other billionaires.
On Saturday night, the founder of Pershing Square Capital Management supported podcast host Joe Rogan’s promise to give $100,000 to charity in exchange for Dr. Peter Hotez debating presidential nominee and vaccine-doubtful Robert Kennedy Jr. on Rogan’s show. Dr. Hotez is an educator and an active opponent of vaccine disinformation.
Ackman made a second offer of $150,000, stating that a discussion of these topics “should allow the public to gain a greater understanding of these problems.”
The next day, pointing to Hotez, he said, “If you are sincerely passionate about protecting lives, it is necessary to increase public awareness of the reality regarding vaccines. “You can’t leave this discussion now,” the speaker said.
