NEW YORK – CNBC’s Shepard Smith on Monday night took to the airwaves to declare he is sick and tired of the coronavirus pandemic.

“I’m sick of Covid. Don’t get me wrong, I mean I’m sad for the sick and dying, obviously. Frontline workers and medical professionals, you’re heroes,” the anchor said on The News With Shepard Smith. “And I follow all of the rules, every one of them. But like so many of you, I’m sick of worrying about Covid. I’m sick of hearing about it. I’m sick of reading about it. I’m sick of talking about it. And I’m definitely sick of reporting on it every single day. It’s too much.”

Smith then questioned CDC Director Dr. Rochelle Walensky, asking if he’d be better off just getting Omicron. “It’s pretty clear it’s not gonna kill me,” he said.

“We don’t know yet the long-term manifestations of omicron, the long Covid that we’ve seen with other variants,” Walensky said. Watch the full exchange below.
