On a recent episode of The 700 Club
, television’s premier destination for religious bigotry since 1966, Robertson advised a viewer that while the chances of contracting Ebola in Kenya are slim (the closest the virus has gotten to Kenya is 68 cases in the Democratic Republic of the Congo
, an outbreak unrelated to the one in Western Africa), travelers should beware of AIDS-ridden towels. What? Yes.
Lucky for us, Anderson Cooper took him to task on his ”RidicuList" segment on Anderson Cooper 360. “Do not even get him started with the wash cloths with hepatitis C,” quips Anderson in reference to Robertson.
Just to be clear, if you missed all the evidence, all the research, the depth and breadth of all the knowledge garnered about HIV and AIDS over the past three decades: You cannot get HIV if you share towels. Thanks for being the handsomest voice of reason on cable news, AC.
