In the early days of COVID-19, Trump insisted to his followers that criticisms of his response to the virus were nothing but a “Democratic hoax” and promised them that the virus would “disappear like magic.” A few months later, he held rallies while the Center for Disease Control and the World Health Organization pleaded with people to stay home and slow the spread of the virus. 800,000 American deaths later, Trump faced the consequences of what he had done.
At an event featuring former Fox News host and ousted sexual abuser Bill O’Reilly and the twice-impeached ex-president who lost the popular vote twice and rivals O’Reilly in sexual abuse accusations, the two men said they had both received a booster shot for COVID. Boos could be heard roaring up from the crowd. Salon reports that:
‘A largely unmasked crowd at the American Airlines Center in Dallas – the final stop of Fox host Bill O’Reilly’s ‘The History Tour’ with the former president — vocally pushed back at the news. During the appearance, Trump touted his implementation of Operation Warp Speed, the public-private partnership brokered last May to expedite the development, production, and distribution of COVID-19 vaccines for every American.’
Trump held up his hand, saying “don’t, don’t, don’t,” before waving off the criticism by saying “it’s a very tiny group up there.” He spent a significant portion of his time on stage congratulating himself for the vaccine, which the majority of his supporters refuse to get.
‘Look, we did something that was historic. We saved tens of millions of lives worldwide when we – together, all of us – we got a vaccine done…This was going to ravage the country far beyond what it is right now, take credit for it … it’s great, what we’ve done is historic. Don’t let them take it away.’
Meanwhile, 30 percent of Americans remain unvaccinated and the Omicron variant is filling up hospitals once again.
