Well, it is party time for the Republicans. Donald Trump, the loser, is taking his naked face and leaving with a scary bang — holding 25 Christmas parties at the White House. That is right, 25. Why? Apparently, he wants to seed the entire Republican party by exposing these supporters to the coronavirus and sending them back to their communities. What could go wrong?
The vaccine is coming, but not just yet. It may be just weeks away for people in nursing homes and the frontline medical people. Then, it will go to people over 80, 75, 70, and so on. Plus, those with underlying conditions such as diabetes and high blood pressure. Most Americans will be immunized by early summer. But once they are vaccinated, people must keep distancing and wearing masks. The reason is that it takes a while to properly infuse a person’s body.
Yet, people are reticent about taking the vaccine. Presidents Bill Clinton (D-AK), George W. Bush (R-TX), and Barack Obama (D-IL) have a solution, according to CNN:
- Unfortunately, there are those who fear the vaccine, any vaccine. A conspiracy theory emanating from the Russian propaganda machine convinced people that normal vaccinations cause autism. That is false.
- Trump has certainly implemented a terrible misinformation campaign about the virus being a hoax, masks being a symbol of being a Democrat, and real men do not wear masks. His followers do not question their leader.
- On. the other hand, people know that this vaccine has gone through the quality control process at warp speed. When the polio vaccine came out, 250 children were given a bad batch of doses, and 10 of them died. People worry that could be a repeat. Plus, we have not had time to uncover any long-term problems.
President Bush’s Chief of Staff Freddy Ford contacted world-renowned virologist and Director of the National Insitute (NIH) of Allergy and Infectious Diseases Dr. Anthony Fauci. Trump ignored this precious asset, but not the Big Three Presidents. Ford told CNN:
‘A few weeks ago President Bush asked me to let Dr. Fauci and Dr. Birx know that, when the time is right, he wants to do what he can to help encourage his fellow citizens to get vaccinated. First, the vaccines need to be deemed safe and administered to the priority populations. Then, President Bush will get in line for his, and will gladly do so on camera.’
President Clinton’s press secretary Angel Urena told CNN on Wednesday that he, too, would be willing to take the vaccine in a public setting in order to promote it:
“President Clinton will definitely take a vaccine as soon as available to him, based on the priorities determined by public health officials. And he will do it in a public setting if it will help urge all Americans to do the same.’
Then, President Obama said in a SiriusXM interview to be aired on Thursday, that he trusted Dr. Fauci. If the virologist said the vaccine is safe, then he is all in:
‘People like Anthony Fauci, who I know, and I’ve worked with, I trust completely. So, if Anthony Fauci tells me this vaccine is safe, and can vaccinate, you know, immunize you from getting Covid, absolutely, I’m going to take it.’
Obama continued, saying he might take the vaccine on TV:
‘I promise you that when it’s been made for people who are less at risk, I will be taking it. I may end up taking it on TV or having it filmed, just so that people know that I trust this science, and what I don’t trust is getting Covid.
‘I understand you know historically — everything dating back all the way to the Tuskegee experiments and so forth — why the African American community, would have some skepticism. But the fact of the matter is, is that vaccines are why we don’t have polio anymore, the reason why we don’t have a whole bunch of kids dying from measles and smallpox and diseases that used to decimate entire populations and communities.’
