Later, Maher appeared to agree with Harrelson, arguing that vitamin D should have been made a priority after data was released that COVID-19 is especially dangerous to people with low levels of vitamin D.
“I think they’ve done a lot of studies about vitamin D and how important it was when the people who had low levels, they were much more vulnerable to COVID,” Maher said. “Why not tell people that? Can’t you make money selling vitamin D?”
Harrelson responded, “That’s just it, man … Ivermectin got made into a ‘horse tranquilizer’ … hydroxychloroquine got made ridiculous, and there was only one thing that could work and that’s the vaccine, right? So, ultimately, because of that, billions of dollars was made.”
