According to CBS late night talk show host James Corden and his The Late Late Show staff, it isn’t enough to offer Americans food or prizes to get the vaccine. No, no. People who don’t want the vaccine deserve a “knuckle sandwich.”
During his monologue, Corden was going off on people who are refusing to get the vaccine.
“Vaccination rates in the United States have started to decline,” said Corden during his monologue. “Which means we’re on pace to fall just short of President Biden’s goal of having seventy percent of the country partially vaccinated by the fourth of July. Biden could end up just shy of his goal by three percent. See? This is exactly why you don’t set goals.”
Despite the fact that Americans shouldn’t care about a politician’s percentage goal, Corden continued by saying: “And this is after Shake Shack offered free food to vaccinated people. If that doesn’t incentivize you, well, I’m afraid nothing will.”
Corden then asked his band and some people on his team what should be done in order to convince people to get the vaccine. “I think we should stop offering anything,” said co-head writer of The Late Late Show with James Corden, Ian Karmel. “The only thing we should offer people who don’t want the vaccine is a knuckle sandwich.”
