Trump’s Vaccine Politics

Former President Trump recently made statements encouraging people to get vaccinated. He followed this up with another endorsement of vaccines in an interview with Candace Owens. Some supporters expressed anger and frustration with the statements. Like all facets of 21st Century America, the vaccine is political and his hardcore base is upset that their former champion does not see eye to eye with them. Trump’s comments are just a product of a broken process.

These products are not vaccines. When the initial reports in 2020 described what the experimental products could do, it was obvious these were not vaccines. The shots lessened symptoms, did not prevent infection and did not prevent transmission. Skeptics correctly noted that there was little upside to receiving the shots compared to the unknown downsides. As documented elsewhere, the left was skeptical of Trump’s vaccine in 2020 and pivoted to rabid adoption in ‘21. As documented in mainstream right outlets, the vaccine messaging was overly aggressive in the rollout, lying about effectiveness with figures such as Fauci, the FDA and large media figures saying the vaccine was 100% effective and prevented spread.

These shots were really therapeutic treatments at best. This caused consternation for the CDC, forcing them to do what the left does and play with language. They altered the definition of vaccine. The phrase breakthrough infection was deployed rather than vaccine failure. Unvaccinated included those jabbed who were not two weeks out, which no normie pauses to ask why nor ask if the jab doesn’t end up causing an infection. Some states did not track cases for the vaccinated. Other states have played with dates to make it look like vaccinated cases are 10-15% of total ‘21 cases. Piecing together data, the vaccinated make up higher percentages of total cases and even make up a decent chunk of hospitalizations and deaths. American media has effectively blocked out the explosion in cases in highly vaccinated nations, proving their ineffectiveness. Omicron arrived giving them an out for the uselessness of vaccines in time for the winter wave. We are now six months into a pandemic of the unvaccinated that increasingly is a pandemic of the vaccinated.

This is the situation America finds itself in and in which Trump makes his comments. Even the Biden administration cannot pivot to “No Panicking” because their base is a hysterical camp of hypochondriacs. Twenty months of hysteria has painted the left into a corner, and the July ‘21 calm-down was all they could enjoy. Trump effectively is saying available to all, mandated for none like almost all other Republican officials. Moves made by a variety of Republicans show how few are actively protecting their voters, which shows just how powerful the narrative is on the ruling class. To ask him to countersignal is to ask him to be the radical ‘15 figure people perceived him to be. He was not and is not. He is a fairly normal Republican with a few deviations from the norm.

In a political calculation, he is counting on his base to go nowhere while appealing to those dopey centrists who are slaves to the television. It is a play on suburbanites. Checking vaccination rates for industries, many white collar firms have vax rates above 70%. Try being an unvaccinated employee at a firm that touts its 84% vaccination rate. One feels like a soldier left behind enemy lines if you’re silently an unvaxxed co-worker. It is not just that these people get vaccinated but are evangelicals for the products and tout them whether age 55 or 25. Even after infection and vax failure, they tout the vaccine as it could have been worse because so many have been psyopped into thinking corona was a guaranteed hospitalization and likely death. Twas just a bad cold thanks to the vaccine! Well, it was a cold for me too when I had it without it.

Trump’s vanity is a liability and the ability to promote his vaccine is too juicy to resist. It garners praise even from the enemy. Even St. Fauci himself has applauded Trump’s statements. He loves praise. He loves to take credit for an unprecedented, historic achievement. Few could resist and few could see three steps down the road.

It is shortsighted as the moment the regime will find it acceptable to junk the vaccines it will. Then these dangerous vaccines will be Trump’s dirty deed forced through in a desperate bid to win re-election. The suppressed side effects killing and harming the young will get media play, and the designated villain will be a big orange target. It will be an albatross to hang from his neck.

    “Kaiser Family Foundation found in a recent poll that as of October, 60% of unvaccinated Americans are Republicans.”
    If you have 100 people and 10 are unvaccinated and 6 are Republicans that is 66%.
    BUT you still have 90% that ARE vaccinated and around 30 to 40 percent of those are Republicans.
    You must think about ALL the numbers.

        Still not “encouraging” to GET it.

        Just not dissing the vaccine. He is saying that the vaccine is Ok.

        Any “I got it, you should too.” statements?

        Splitting hairs, but Trump is careful with his words despite what Trump haters say.

        50 years in NYC construction and the media limelight and they haven’t pinned a thing on him.

      “I would recommend it, and 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. But, you know, again, we have our freedoms and we have to live by that, and I agree with that also,” Trump said during an interview with Fox News on Tuesday. “But it’s a great vaccine, it’s a safe vaccine, and it’s something that works.”

    Why does (T)Dump even matter? He played his opening act perfectly in WWE style. Out for the 2nd act and maybe gets a chance in the 3rd act. Dump does not care about the Plebs (slaves). DemonRATS and RepubliCAN’Ts are the left and right wing of the same bird (team).

    Omnicron is the last hurrah with it’s high transmissability and low virulence. As a matter of fact I am pretty sure I have it right now, if only there was anywhere that I could get tested locally not totally booked I would.

    Somehow though, everyone is trying to slip in their stupidity in despite the rapidly approaching end of the relevance of COVID 19 as an illness, which is expected from the usual scumbags but laughably stupid for people like Trump who could wait a few months for the virus to water down to nothing.

    People are fucking retarded.

    Insist as we might, we don’t know for sure what, in the 21st century, the Presidency is. And because we don’t, we can’t evaluate presidents precisely.

    How much freedom do presidents have to steer the bureaucracy? How much are they coerced to say/do certain things? A president was shot last century, since then, many politicians appear to be operating under duress.

    We don’t know the answers to these questions: Trump could be doing the most with the least, he could be doing the least with the most.

    The Bible says the the Ruling Class is wicked. We must never assume it is working for the people’s benefit.
    The worst of the worst is ALWAYS in office, because the Bible says “Satan is the “God” of this age.”
    “Age” means a segment of time. Satan will rule until Christ returns to Earth to overthrow him. Satan tempted Christ with
    “All the Kingdoms of the World at their height of power.” This undoubtedly included the United States. Only Christ could have
    rejected such an offer.
    One world government headed by the Antichrist is surely coming. Satan wants the world drastically depopulated. That is what the
    genocidal jab is for. As the Georgia Guide stones say: “A world population of 500,000,000 is the goal.”
    If people refuse to comply with the vaccines the next False Flag will be staged UFO invasion to “unite” the world.
    Satan can create all the demons his lackies need.

    It is interesting that this is the issue that is finally causing the Plan Trusters to abandon Trump in mass. No wall? No problem. 700+ Trump supporters walked into a trap on Jan 6th and then completely abandoned? No problem. But he takes credit for the Vax and they lose it.
