Told You So: Trump Booed by His Own Supporters for Pushing the Vax
Donald Trump has proven to be the most vocal ex-President in American history by this point. His rally over the weekend in Alabama was the largest one he’s held since the campaign last year. He provides constant updates on his official website. He’s out doing interviews and making headlines every time you turn the TV on. It’s great that Trump is not just quietly going away, as so many ex-Presidents have done in the past. He’s not giving up on the fact that the 2020 election was not a fair contest. BUT… and I know this isn’t the first time I’ve said this in these pages… I wish he would just shut up about the stupid COVID shots already. Apparently, I’m not the only one who feels that way.
Trump was booed at his own rally over the weekend when he started extolling the virtues of the COVID medicines and told everyone to “Get the shot.” Whoops! Talk about reading the room incorrectly.
That rarely happens with Donald Trump. In fact, I can’t remember the last time it happened. He normally has his finger on the pulse of his working class, all-American base. But for some reason, he’s had a weird blind spot about the coronavirus medicines from day one. I think that’s going to change now that he’s experienced pushback from his supporters.
Ever since the existence of the vaccines was revealed – conveniently a few days after the 2020 election – the elites have underestimated two things: The total lack of excitement over the vaccines (about half of the people just don’t care), and the bedrock opposition that real Americans have to forced vaccinations.
The thing about coronavirus and the vaccine that the elites just don’t seem to understand about those of us who have chosen not to get the shot(s), is that we have an incredibly sophisticated level of knowledge about what the shots can and cannot do.
Since President Trump and a lot of his advisors and other significant audiences frequently do read these articles (Hello, Tucker Carlson and his staff!), let me just say this:
Mr. President, I implore you, please: Shut up about the stupid “vaccines” already. It’s a losing issue. Those of us who have chosen not to take the shot(s) have our own personal reasons for this choice. That’s called freedom. Any of us who wanted the shot(s) by now would have popped into a Walgreens and got the jab.
With the FDA breaking its own rules to suddenly grant its approval to the Pfizer shot(s) on Monday, the social pressure that Americans are about to face over this medicine is going to be dialed up to 11. Since the people in charge have lied to us every step of the way about every possible thing that there is to know about coronavirus, I’m personally going to assume that they’re doing the same now (lying to us). In fact, we’re still in uncharted waters here. No vaccine has ever before in the history of the FDA been granted emergency approval AND simultaneous full FDA approval. Nobody in charge seems to know what they’re doing anymore.
Sorry about the COVID “vaccine” rant. The subject is so boring at this point that it makes me want to yank the steering wheel when I’m on a drive by myself.
Trump wasn’t the only one to draw boos at his rally over the weekend. Congressman Mo Brooks (R-AL) spoke at the rally and committed a major unforced error. He told the crowd that they just need to put the 2020 election behind them. Wow! That was far more tone-deaf than Trump encouraging people to “get the shots.” Brooks may have unintentionally ended his own political career with that remark.
Who does he even think we are? We’re not putting the 2020 election behind us, and we have no intention of doing so. The full truth of that election hasn’t even been revealed to the American people yet. And when it is, all of us unvaccinated people have plans for how to right the great wrong that was committed against us.
