McDonald's, the fast food giant, is promoting Covid vaccines for the Biden administration. From McDonald's:
McDonald’s partners with the Biden Administration to provide trusted, independent information on COVID-19 vaccines
If this doesn't convince the average American that Covid vaccination programs have ZERO to do with health, I'm not sure what will. Perhaps a campaign with Philip Morris for a cigarette you can smoke right through a KN-95 mask. There is no health in fast food. There is diabetes, stroke, heart attacks, cancer, obesity, organ failure. All the the factors that put one at higher risk of dying from Covid are created or worsened by eating McDonald's food. There's no HEALTH to by found by this policy. It's a ruse. And it may be racist.
Fast food consumption affects the health of People of Color more than White Americans, especially children. From our own CDC: Non-Hispanic white adolescents aged 12–19 consumed a lower percentage of calories from fast food on a given day than both non-Hispanic black and Hispanic adolescents. And this: a higher percentage of non-Hispanic black adults -- 42.4 percent -- said they consumed fast food than non-Hispanic white adults at 37.6 percent, non-Hispanic Asian adults at 30.6 percent and Hispanic adults at 35.5 percent.
It's definitely ironic.
President Trump was mocked from bringing fast food into the White House for visiting . Late night talk show hosts pilloried him. The Twitterverse virtue signalers castigated him. Will they question President Biden's reliance on McDonald's to promote his vaccination race?

Kimmel continued, quipping: "And you know he's taking whatever they don't eat back to his bedroom. He'll be like the rat in 'Charlotte's Web' tonight rolling around in Quarter Pounders with cheese."
Stephen Colbert and Seth Meyers mocked the president for hosting a meal that appeared to cater less to the tastes of his guests and more to his own well-documented preferences.
"Mr. President," Colbert said, his face contorting into an uncomfortable grimace, "is it possible you're just projecting your favorite foods onto them?"
