Conservative Pundits Hot Take On Coronavirus Lockdown Gets The Slapdown It Deserves

Conservative pundit Dennis Prager’s outlandish statement against the coronavirus lockdown came back to bite him as it drew considerable mockery and scorn on social media from both sides of the aisle.

“The lockdown is the greatest mistake in the history of humanity,” the controversial commentator was quoted as declaring in a tweet shared by the PragerU website (that he founded) on Tuesday:

Critics pounced on the claim by suggesting other historical events (some serious and others for comic effect) that could be more worthy of the title.

Prager, meanwhile, responded to some of the criticism with the same tweet.

“For those who confuse ‘mistake’ with ‘evil,’ Dennis said over and over that the worldwide lockdown is not an evil,” he wrote, citing an episode of his radio show. “It is a mistake. They are not synonyms.”
