JEREMY Clarkson hit back at the fake news media who had claimed he had ‘faced death’ after ‘battling’ Covid, revealing that his run-in with the virus was not that dramatic at all.
The legendary Top Gear and Grand Tour host who now presents ITV’s Who Want’s To Be A Millionaire? took to social media after newspapers exaggerated his run-in with the dreaded Corona after he wrote a column in the Sunday Times.
Clarkson, 60 wrote in The Sunday Times: “Four days before Christmas, I woke in the night to find my sheets were soggy. And that I had a constant dry cough.” and tested positive for Coronavirus.
He added: “because I am 60 and fat, and because I’ve smoked half a million cigarettes and had double pneumonia” he then joked that he would “probably die, on my own, in a lonely plastic tent”.
“I also had to self-isolate… I took myself off to bed with the new Don Winslow book and a bag of kale to wait for the Grim Reaper to pop his head round the door.”
“I’m not going to lie — it was quite scary.”
The newspapers later branded his “battle” with Coronavirus.
He wrote on Twitter: “Dear the newspapers. I didn’t “battle” Covid. I lay on my bed reading a book till it went away.”

One Covid-nut told Mr Clarkson: “And you can of course assume that because that’s how it was for you, it’s been like that for everyone else.”
“No one’s died. No one’s been really ill. No one’s been in intensive care. No one’s long term problems. Rock on, Jeremy.”
Talk Radio host: Julia Hartley-Brewer defended our Jez: “He didn’t say or imply any of that. He simply described his own experience – which, in fact, is the experience of the vast majority of people who get Covid (7 members of my own family included).”
He didn't say or imply any of that. He simply described his own experience – which, in fact, is the experience of the vast majority of people who get Covid (7 members of my own family included). That doesn't imply that a minority don't get seriously ill and that some don't die.

“That doesn’t imply that a minority don’t get seriously ill and that some don’t die.”
Once again, the MSM is scaring Brits into another Lockdown with these horror stories, that are in fact, quite mild.
