Given his supporters ability to do screeching 180s, we’ll start hearing from them how great the vaccines are and wonderful, too.

Polls show that Republican men, who are overwhelmingly supporters of Trump and his "Make America Great Again" or MAGA platform, are the leading vaccine skeptics.

Good for Trump. If his Republican followers take his advice, good for them. But worrying nonetheless that they need to hear it from their cult leader before doing so. Could some of his followers having heard him say 'fight like hell' interpreted that literally, leading them to attack the capitol because they thought he was telling them to?

Late to the game but a responsible action needed. How many will follow his advice?

"I would recommend it," Trump said during an interview on Fox News. "I would recommend it to a lot of people that don't want to get it and a lot of those people voted for me, frankly.

Well he did right for once.

Let's see if his brainless followers change their tunes, the ones who were arguing it violates their freedom.....

I doubt that, despite the left delusional media, just like every other person, we can think for ourselves, some will take it, other won't, some might have allergic or negative reactions to it, it all depends, has nothing to do with Trump, love the man, but he can preach to the choir, I won't be in line getting it and as careful as I am to vaccines as some are, not taking the chance, that's it. Don't care what people say or think, my choice.

Former President Donald Trump on Tuesday encouraged his Republican supporters -- one of the main groups resistant to COVID-19 vaccines -- to get their shots.

Trump: That's right - all my supporters need to go out and get their COVID vaccine - and no, I don't mean the Clorox one. That's works, but has some mean side effects.....

Get your COVID vaccine - but don't believe those Libs out there telling you that you can get it for free - no way... I encourage you to go by the Trumpstore.com, and buy your vaccine package, that includes a signed copy of The Art of the Deal and a pillow from Mr Pillow Guy.....all for $69.95...

WHAT A BARGAIN!

"Arm out please Mr. President, we've made that bleachy light injection thing that you suggested."

I won't be in line getting it and as careful as I am to vaccines as some are, not taking the chance, that's it. Don't care what people say or think, my choice.

You know, like disconnecting the smoke detectors because they're too noisy or not wearing a life vest because it's too confining....

His choice...and who would have thought a Trump supporter was pro-choice...

Big men afraid of little jabs.

"I would recommend it to a lot of people that don't want to get it and a lot of those people voted for me, frankly."

After reading the headline, my first thought was, how will he make it about him?

Maybe Rupert Murdock will also tell his Fox conspiracy theorists to stop making baseless statements about whether the vaccine has been tested or that no one is answering questions.

Rupert got the vaccine quickly and like Trump secretively, but his network is still pushing conspiracies about the virus.

Some in the far right want Tucker Carlson to run for president. Tucker questions the need for the vaccine. Trump's now telling his followers to get the shot. Is Trump challenging Tucker, taking an opposite view from that of a potential rival presidential candidate in 2024?

I would support it, but that won’t happen.

Tucker questions the need for the vaccine.

Rightfully so

Trump's now telling his followers to get the shot. Is Trump challenging Tucker,

No, Trump is saying his opinion since he had the virus and Tucker is saying his as a curious and skeptical critic. That’s the great thing about democracy, difference of opinions, healthy for a robust dialogue.

Tucker questions the need for the vaccine. 

Because Tucker is an absolute moron, just like anyone who questions the need for a vaccine.

Trump's now telling his followers to get the shot. Is Trump challenging Tucker,

Yes. When A contradicts B, A is challenging B.

Tucker isn't curious, skeptical, or seeking dialog.

Maybe you missed the recent John Oliver episode focusing on that troll and fell into PTownsend's trap.

Biden's vaccination plan, 100 million doses in his first 100 days, will be achieved in his first 60 days. Nearly one-third of the population.

3 ( +7 / -4 )

74 million voted for Trump. There are roughly 100 million African-Americans/Latinos living in the U.S. Those up in arms on whether or not Trump supporters, who are supposedly white supremacists, receive the vaccine over the low proportion of Black/Latino vaxxers are putting their bigotry on full display.
