Professional golfer Phil Mickelson triggered leftists on social media after asking some logical questions about the COVID-19 pandemic and its latest variant.

The 51-year-old PGA champion said he was “just curious” about some things regarding the omicron variant and posed questions that many would agree were fair things to consider, be they from politicians and public health officials or from non-experts such as Mickelson.

“Serious question since I’m not a dr. If omicron is contagious but not deadly(25,000 cases in Africa with no deaths) why try and control it?” he asked in a tweet on Thursday.

“Why not let it go and let people get it and develop immunity? Especially for those who won’t get vaccinated?” he wrote, adding, “Pls no hate, I’m just curious.”

In the not-so-distant past, asking questions like these would not land someone in the line of fire but would have sparked lively debate and discourse. But in 2021, Mickelson’s straightforward queries set off criticism from lefties who, like Dr. Anthony Fauci, leave no room for logical questions about the virus and its variants.

But many Twitter users applauded the golfer for voicing the questions many others have on their minds as well.

Many responded to Mickelson’s tweet with a sobering reality check.
