President Trump spoke with Real America’s Voice yesterday and lit Biden up as a joke who nobody trusts when the subject of vaccine mandates came up. Host David Brody called mandates “discriminatory” and Trump said it wouldn’t even have been an issue if he’d been reelected.
Definitely true for a lot of reasons, but one of them that Trump highlighted was that people would have trusted the vaccine under his administration.
“There’s these vaccine mandates. I’m not talking about the vaccine, but the mandates, have they been discriminatory against the unvaccinated in this country?” Brody asks. That barely has to be asked because obviously they are.
“Well, what’s happening is it’s a tremendous – you know, it’s very interesting, David, because when I was president, we had no – people were not fighting the vaccine. Incredible. Everybody wanted it. Everybody wanted it,” said Trump. Lefties will say that’s not true, and a lot of people on the right might point out that left wing MEDIA were actively trying to undermine the vaccine while Trump was in office, but that’s not the point here. The point is that there was a national and international PUSH for the vaccines, a massive project was undertaken and ACCOMPLISHED thanks to Trump’s management, and it was the thing that everyone everywhere was demanding: a vaccine.
The fact that the vaccine doesn’t actually stop covid or mean they let you take masks off wasn’t known then.
“I think people just don’t trust the Biden administration or Biden because since I left, now you have the mandate fight, and that’s a big fight, by the way. You have to allow people their freedom,” said Trump. He says he took the vaccine and calls it effective, before adding “But you have to allow people their freedom.” Which of course, YOU DO.
Brody then asked Trump about Anthony Fauci, who Trump called a “better promoter than a doctor” and also used an old saw that Fauci was in his position so long he was “part of the furniture.”
Idiomatically that just means he was a fixture. But we all know the other (correct) implication.
“Well, David, you know, he was there for like 40 years or something. Yeah, he was a part of the furniture. But if you think about it, I really did pretty much the opposite of whatever he said,” Trump elaborated. “I did what I what I wanted to do.”
“He didn’t want to close our country to China. I did it immediately. I didn’t even hesitate. And he said three months later that I saved thousands and thousands of lives by doing it. He didn’t want to close our country to Europe. And I did it. They were heavily infected. I did,” he said. Exactly right.
“Frankly, you can’t win that one. If I would have done it, I would have taken heat. If I didn’t do it, I would have – you know, it’s the same story,” Trump said of firing/not firing Fauci. “I did what I wanted to do, and I made the correct decisions.”
Reminder of when we had a president who made decisions at all, not to mention the right ones. Good ol’ days.
