Former President and conspiracy enthusiast Donald Trump endured a moment of karma over the weekend. During a speech opposite disgraced former Fox News personality Bill O’Reilly, the pair endured boos from their own supporters. The reason: both admitted to getting a COVID-19 vaccine booster.
During a rally in Dallas, O’Reilly admitted to taking the COVID-19 vaccine–something some right-wing media personalities have tried to dissuade their audiences from doing. Trump admitted to taking the vaccine as well, as well as a booster shot.
“Both the president and I are vaxxed,” O’Reilly noted during the rally. “Did you get the booster?”

“Yes,” Trump agreed.
“I got it, too,” O’Reilly said.
At that point, audible “boos” erupted from the audience, apparently full of skeptics and conspiracy theorists opposed to the COVID-19 vaccine. Trump pushed back against the hate, and tried to downplay the catcalls.

“Don’t, don’t, don’t, don’t, don’t, don’t, don’t,” Trump grunted at the audience. “It’s a very tiny group over there,” he added, pointing to a corner of the room.
The booing seems appropriate, although probably not for the reason the hecklers intended. Donald Trump has endured wide, bipartisan criticism for his refusal to encourage his supporters to get the COVID-19 vaccine. Trump had also previously discouraged booster shots, saying he probably would not get one himself. Trump’s waffling stance on the issue is all the more inexplicable considering he survived COVID-19 in the run-up to the 2020 Election; the disease left him severely ill and hospitalized. Trump’s handling of the COVID-19 crisis also continues to earn the ire of the world, with the former president having downplayed the danger of the virus, contradicted health expert recommendations, refused to wear or promote masks, and, at one point, claiming the virus would magically “go away.”
So odd. “Operation Warp Speed” was the Trump administration program to quickly develop and distribute COVID vaccines. You’d think Trump would take credit ad infinitum and promote the hell out of vaccination.
Except Trump never had a distribution plan. His plan was to let the states fight over resources. He obviously thinks of himself as Caesar and loves a good show at the Colosseum.
WHY WON’T HE JUST GO AWAY???!!!!!
I continue to hope his dietary habits are his ultimate undoing and before 2024 this fat POS is no longer with us.
If by “go away” you mean Don the Con “serving time in federal prison” for at least SOME of his numerous crimes, I fully agree!
His ego seems to have a voracious appetite, and he needs to feed it constantly, which is why he won’t go away.
I don’t understand. Why did he get the vaccine? Isn’t the bleach working?
It’s comical. He couldn’t care less if his supporters get vaccinated. He got it because he cares only about himself
It’s enjoyable to see the orange menace booed by people dumb enough to pay to see him, but he remains a danger to democracy. I hope the people who say he won’t run in 2024 are correct.
in My Country he would be dead already. Honestly do you all have nothing better to do?
