Former President Donald Trump and Bill O’Reilly revealed to a crowd in Dallas that they are both fully vaccinated and boosted, which was met with boos.
In recent times we’ve seen various videos and quotes of Trump encouraging his supporters to embrace the Covid jab, which was developed during his presidency.
“This [COVID-19] was going to ravage the country, far beyond what it is right now,” Trump, 75, told a Dallas audience during an event on Bill O’Reilly’s “History Tour” Sunday.
“Take credit for it,” the former president urged. “Take credit for it. It’s a great — What we’ve done is historic. Don’t let them take it away. Don’t take it away from ourselves. You’re playing that — you’re playing right into their hands when you’re sort of like, ‘Oh, the vaccine!’
“If you don’t want to take it, you shouldn’t be forced to take it,” Trump went on. “No mandates, but take credit because we saved tens of millions of lives. Take credit. Don’t let them take that away from you.”
“Do you agree with that?” Trump asked, receiving a round of applause from the crowd in response.
The COVID-19 vaccines from Moderna, Pfizer-BioNTech, and Johnson & Johnson were developed as part of the Trump administration’s Operation Warp Speed initiative.
Trump was also interviewed by Candace Owens where he promoted the Covid jab and pushed back when she suggested that the jab wasn’t as effective as some are claiming it to be.
“I came up with a vaccine, with three vaccines,” Trump said. “All are very, very good. Came up with three of them in less than nine months. It was supposed to take five to 12 years.”
Owens interjected during his remarks saying, “And yet more people have died under COVID-19 this year, by the way, under Joe Biden than under you. And more people took the vaccine this year, so people are questioning how…”
“Oh no, the vaccine works, but some people aren’t taking them,” Trump said. “The ones that get very sick and go to the hospital are the ones who don’t take their vaccine.”
“But it’s still their choice, and if you take the vaccine you’re protected. Look, the results of the vaccine are very good. And if you do get it, it’s a very minor form. People aren’t dying when they take the vaccine,” he said.
What data does former president Donald Trump have to back up his claims that those who are the sickest in hospitals are only unvaccinated?
“Remember when Trump said you would be playing right into the Democrat’s hands by mocking the rushed, ineffective shot?” Stop the Steal organizer Ali Alexander wrote on messaging app Telegram.
“Yeah, Joe Biden praises him and his booster shot. Trump, stop. Just stop. Have your position (backed by Fauci) and allow us to have ours (which is backed by science). This losing is getting boomer level annoying,” he said.
I can’t help but think that the left, or at least some on the left are perplexed by the thought that some Conservatives, right-leaning, Libertarians, and others who aren’t rabid leftists still will not support or get the vaccine despite Trump promoting it.
“I was stunned by that,” Fauci said. “I mean, given the fact of how popular he is with that group, that they would boo him, which tells me how recalcitrant they are about being told what they should do.”
Why should we trust or believe anyone with governmental connections when the FDA wants at least 55 years to release information regarding the vaccine?
What the left doesn’t realize is that a majority of those who are right-leaning do not blindly follow whoever is in charge. We actually think for ourselves and make our decisions. We’re not brain-dead lemmings who do as we’re told.
We will continue thinking for ourselves. We will continue to question everyone from government officials to the “scientists”.
Do not comply.
