Podcaster Russell Brand blasted President Joe Biden and Pfizer after a top executive with the company admitted they “never tested transmission efficacy” of their COVID vaccine in the trials.
During Rumble’s “Stay Free with Russell Brand” podcast Wednesday, the host opened the show by pointing out that Janine Small, Pfizer’s president of international developed markets, testified before the European Union Parliament and admitted the company “never even trialed the vaccine” to test its efficacy to stop the spread of COVID “before it entered the market.”
“Isn’t that the most extraordinary thing,” Brand said. “After for a couple of years, hearing that if you’re an unvaccinated person that you are irresponsible. I believe Joe Biden for example said this is a ‘pandemic of the unvaccinated.’”

Brand then questioned if others were seeing the story on places like CNN and the BBC, and said one has to wonder why this isn’t news.
“Because they were pretty keen to spend taxpayer money on advertising those campaigns, ‘Stop the spread,’” the 47-year-old actor said. “I mean, it was at a point where it was tantamount to kicking a grandmother into a ditch to not be vaccinated every hour on the hour.”
Brand later dove deeper into to the story, playing a clip of the Pfizer executive laughing as she admitted it wasn’t tested because they had to “move at the speed of science.”
“I think the thing that bothers me most about these revelations is the kind of information we were given at the start of the pandemic,” the actor said, as he took his viewers back to when Biden said “this is a pandemic of the unvaccinated,” calling it now “misinformation.”
“Like you’re sort of invited to forget that these things ever happened,” he added. “What they want is for us to just put it behind us. Like there was no rhetoric around it. That there was no persuasion … get it, get it, blame, shame.”
The host then played a clip of former CNN host Brian Stelter blasting viewers if they didn’t get the jab, claiming there was all this evidence that it would stop transmission.
“Now, no f***ing evidence. Pharmaceutical miscalculation …” Brand said as he reminded viewers how people weren’t allowed to talk about this kind of stuff and were censored if they did.
Brand said it “was really used as an opportunity to divide people.”
“And something like COVID passports now, well, what was that about?” he added. “What possible benefit is there to a COVID passport. Why are there traveling restrictions placed on unvaccinated people when we cannot demonstrate the vaccine stops the spread?”
“How can you make any argument now that it was anything other than an opportunity to generate profit,” he added. “And an opportunity to introduce regulation.”
