Microsoft co-founder Bill Gates laughed off allegations that he hatched an “evil plot” to push Covid vaccines onto the public.
During a Tuesday appearance on Trevor Noah’s podcast “What Now?” Gates mocked the “wild” theories that link him to the mRNA injections.
Gates argues that the combination of the Covid pandemic and social media had created “insane” and “stunning” discourse.
Some of the “insane” theories he alluded to allege that Gates was engaged in a global scheme to harm the human population for his own benefit.
Noah asked Gates whether these negative opinions had changed his “appetite” or ability to engage in philanthropic efforts successfully.
Gates responded by telling a story about a woman who came up to him on the streets of Seattle.
He claims the woman, framed as a “wild conspiracy theorist,” began accusing Gates of implanting a tracker inside her body.
“I looked at her, and I said, ‘Gosh, I really don’t need to track you; I’m sorry. Let me take the chip out of you,'” Gates said as he and Noah erupted in laughter.
He also appeared to reference “The Real Anthony Fauci,” the bestselling book by presidential candidate Robert F. Kennedy Jr.
“The fact that a book that talks about Fauci and I having an evil plot, killing millions of children with vaccines—the fact that could sell so well, you know, was just another surprise to me about human nature and how having an oversimplistic explanation about what was going on or the motivations, that was kind of shocking,” Gates said.
He added that while he was not necessarily concerned about the attitude toward him personally.
Gates claims that he is worried about the attitude toward vaccines, which he says has been “damning.”
“Getting kids to take things like the measles vaccine is super important in many countries,” Gates said.
“You know, that’s the difference between life and death.
“So, the skepticism about vaccines or medicine is very high and that’s making our health work a lot harder.”
Gates made similar comments during an interview with the BBC last May.
“You almost have to laugh because it’s so crazy,” Gates said of allegations levied against him.
Gates has repeatedly denied theories related to vaccines in media interviews.
However, a May 2020 YouGov/Yahoo poll found that almost one in three U.S. adults believe the microchipping theory.
A year later, another YouGov poll found that one in five Americans believed the U.S. government was pushing COVID-19 vaccines to microchip people.
Gates and others often dismiss the theory by arguing that microchipping with vaccines wouldn’t be possible.
Gates himself has been pushing for every person in the world to be able to prove their identity with a “digital ID,” as Slay News reported.
“I mean, do I really want to track people?” Gates said in the BBC interview.
“I spend billions on vaccines; I don’t make money on vaccines,” he falsely claimed.
“Vaccines save lives, they don’t cause death.
“So you have to say it’s a bit of a strange world where channels for that [theory] gain a lot of interest.”
