President Joe Biden sure knows how to make Americans feel confident and safe when it comes to the COVID-19 vaccine; insult their intelligence. Earlier this week Biden spoke to reporters, albeit briefly, at the Office of the Director of National Intelligence.
One reporter asked the President if mandating the COVID vaccine for all federal employees is “under consideration.” Not answering the question at all, Biden barked, “If you’re not vaccinated, you’re not nearly as smart as I thought you were.”
The Western Journal reports, “it’s worth noting that not so long ago, Biden himself had a case of vaccine hesitancy.” Last September, Biden sang a different tune about the vaccines to be released under…President Trump.
“The way [then-President Donald Trump] talks about the vaccine is not particularly rational,” said Biden. “He’s talking about it being ready, he’s going to talk about moving it quicker than the scientists think it should be moved…People don’t believe that he’s telling the truth, therefore they’re not at all certain they’re going to take the vaccine.”
Sounds familiar. “And one more thing. If and when the vaccine comes, it’s not likely to go through all the tests that needs to be and the trials that are needed to be done” added Biden. Ironically, Biden was barking from his basement where he spent majority of 2020.
Fox News legal analyst Greg Jarrett spoke on ‘Hannity’ questioning why Joe Biden hasn’t pushed the FDA to accelerate approval of the vaccines, such as Trump did. “The failure to get final approval is one of the reasons that millions of Americans are refusing to get the vaccine,” said Jarrett.
Trump, however, “ordered the FDA to cut through the red tape to provide Emergency use Authorization” for each of the vaccines. If “Biden really cared, as he says he does, about getting millions more American vaccinated, he could do what Trump did and cut the red tape” explained Jarrett.
But no, Biden and his vice president defer to name-calling, insulting intelligence, and politicking. The Western Journal reminds us that only last October Kamala Harris said during the vice presidential debate, “if the public health professionals, if Dr. Fauci, if the doctors tell us that we should take it, I’ll be the first in line to take it” she said of the vaccine.
“But if Donald Trump tells us I should take it, that we should take it, I’m not taking it” she exclaimed.
