On Don Lemon Tonight Wednesday, CNN medical analyst Dr. Jonathan Reiner ripped into influential podcast host Joe Rogan, who released a video earlier in the day in which he revealed that he has COVID-19, and has tried multiple unproven and disproven treatments to fight it, including the horse de-wormer Ivermectin.

In the video, Rogan says, “Turns out I got COVID, so we immediately threw the kitchen sink at it. All kinds of meds. Monoclonal antibodies, Ivermectin, Z-Pak, Prednisone, everything.”

“He’s, again, causing a great deal of public disservice when he describes a completely jumbled, sort of self-created medical regimen that he's on right now,” Reiner said in response, later adding, “He’s promoting, kind of a crazy jumble of, you know, sort of folk remedies and internet-prescribed drugs. It's, again, dangerous now. He should have more sense after encountering the disease. And again, I hope he does well and gets well quickly. He’s not helping matters when he promotes this sort of nonsense therapeutic mix.”
