Adam Carolla Shreds Schwarzenegger, Stern for Insane COVID Rants

Podcast titan has harsh words for stars who peddled false pandemic narratives

Adam Carolla is doing a victory lap, and it’s hard to blame him.

The “Mr. Birchum” star took to X Sunday to remind everyone what he said during the recent pandemic.

  • Don’t believe Dr. Anthony Fauci
  • Airline masking rules make no sense
  • The virus overwhelmingly affects the old and immunocompromised
  • The media wants to scare you

For that he was tarred and feathered in the public square. And, as we now know, he was right on all of the above.

Carolla shared a 2020 article from the liberal that noted his unwillingness to “apologize” for sharing those views at the time.

He’s not willing to forgive and forget.

Read this and tell me what I got wrong and as far as the celebrity’s that spoke out. Let’s hear what you have to say now you cowards please speak up. you were willing to speak out then how about now cowards

Carolla and longtime broadcasting partner Dr. Drew Pinsky have led the way in exposing pandemic lies, overreach and misdirection on “The Adam and Dr. Drew Show.”

One example?

Carolla routinely harped on airlines insisting fliers “mask up” between bites and sips. Did the virus take a knee while passengers snacked on trail mix, he asked.

The comedian also targeted the King of All Media on X, someone who many fear for his ability to counter-punch like few others.

Like Jerry Seinfeld.


Earlier this month, Seinfeld slammed and then swiftly apologized for suggesting radio superstar Howard Stern wasn’t a top-tier comic.

Not Carolla.

The podcaster targeted Stern and Arnold Schwarzenegger for their extreme pandemic rhetoric.

The “Predator” star famously said, “screw your freedom” when it came to pandemic rules. He later apologized.

Stern became a recluse during the pandemic, refusing to leave his home and shunning his social life. He also blasted those who refused to take the vaccine, a medicinal treatment less effective than we were initially told.

He got COVID-19 anyway. He lived.

Adam Carolla and Howard Stern. It’s … Complicated

Carolla previously appeared on “The Howard Stern Show,” but the podcaster said Stern severed their ties during the pandemic.

“I’m no longer welcome on the show because I was right about everything COVID. It’s important that I be punished for being correct about everything COVID.”

Now, there’s zero chance of a reunion.

One duo who won’t be splintered by COVID-19 disagreements? Carolla and longtime pal Jimmy Kimmel.

The two met in the 1990s when Carolla brought his Mr. Birchum character to Kimmel’s show on KROQ-FM in Los Angeles. They’ve been thick as thieves ever since, collaborating on both “The Man Show” and “Crank Yankers” through the years.

Kimmel’s pandemic rhetoric proved both aggressively left-of-center and misinformed, in retrospect. Carolla has not held that against his chum, by any indication.

The two have been able to set aside their political differences to keep their friendship intact.


  1. I’m curious why do you have outdated ads on your website telling us to stay indoors and do our part to stop the spread of the virus?

  2. That Adam tolerates J Kimmel dissing america and touting commie propaganda for job and money is cowardice. I have severed all ties to aquaintances of this type. Anyone harming the US is anethma to me. I will tune out Adam C from now on

  3. Stern severed ties with Adam, nit the other way around. Carolla has hinted in the past, much of Kimmel’s opinions are based on his job and the company he works for.

    1. It’s amazing Adam can keep up that bond with Jimmy given his rage against the pandemic lies. I respect their friendship and we should be able to look past political differences, but boy it must stick in Adam’s craw that Jimmy uses his platform as he does (re: Pandemic info)

  4. Lots of apologies to be demanded from those that used their celebrity to shame objective, freedom-loving and rational-thinking people. I’m a little disappointed Carolla left Kimmel and Cobert off that list. They are every bit as cowardly as Arnold and Howard. Anyone who takes government edicts at face value without thorough evalutation is an absolute moron.

    1. Schnitzelnder was little more than a dancing bear filling in after gray davis was dumped as CA governor, and he pulled a horrible stunt on his way out making a secret deal with the democrat Lt Gov, so it’s little surprise he would expose his stupidity with the COVID attack on individual liberty. Little more than a dem wolf in mufti.

  5. Lot of terrible decisions made in hast with COVID which really should have been treated as a very aggressive virus that needed to be handled like other viruses and quarantine people most at risk with compromised immune systems and those who are sick. It was a massive over reaction that did not help contain the virus, and certainly caused further damage to the economy. Some people even today wear what is essentially a useless ineffective cloth mask. This is how bad the over reaction has affected these people’s mental state about the COVID.

  6. Who is Adam Corolla? A Toyota person? I know Howard and Arnold but have no idea who this guy is and honestly he sounds fairly dopey.
