Trump blasts Biden, Harris for 'anti-vaccine rhetoric'

President Trump on Monday took aim at his Democratic opponent, former Vice President Joe Biden, and Biden's running mate, Sen. Kamala Harris (D-Calif.), over remarks by Harris that she would not take Trump's word on the efficacy of a coronavirus vaccine without assurances from top health officials.

During a press conference Monday at the White House, the president pledged that a vaccine for the coronavirus would be available in "record time," and swiped at Harris in particular over the remarks, calling her "the most liberal person in Congress."

Biden and Harris, Trump said, "should immediately apologize for the reckless anti-vaccine rhetoric that they are talking right now, talking about endangering lives. It undermines science, and what happens is all of the sudden you'll have this incredible vaccine and because of that fake rhetoric, it's a political rhetoric ... that's all that is."

Who's writing the script for this political theater? Lewis Carroll?
I think this is a bottomless rabbit hole. My understanding so far, is that when he's pressed on the issue, Trump states any Covid1984 Vaxxx will be VOLUNTARY. Trump seems to prefer treatments over vaxxxes...

It will be a bit funny if the vaccines make out to the public and things go south on adverse effects, then the recriminations will be--"Well I was anti-vaccine before you were" and reply will be "Yes, but I was more anti-vaccine."

Benedetta, that feeling is the best! Someone I’d spent time debating ended up having a grandchild who had a bad vaccine reaction. Presto!

Annie, it is interesting that in Australia as well, it is the conservatives who question the mantra on why hydroxychloroquine has been banned for Covid 19 treatment ($13000 fines and even 6 months jail for any doctor prescribing it for Covid 19 treatment). I notice that on the only conservative media (Sky TV, which is conservative in Australia despite being left in the UK and The Australian newspaper) have facebook comments frequently criticising the ban on hydroxychloroquine and questioning the safety of the Covid 19 vaccine. The comments on the facebook pages of the ABC (Australian) are similar to the BBC and Sky in the UK criticising hydroxychloroquine and vaccine skeptics. I recently found out that Murdoch's interests in Sky UK were bought out several years ago, hence the different slant taken by Sky Australia and Sky UK. Although Sky TV in Australia and The Australian (both Murdoch owned) criticise the whole lockdown viewpoint and the criticise the denial of hydroxychloroquine as a treatment, it is like watching the elephant in the room (or the denial of the elephant in the room) when it comes to any criticism about the Covid 19 or any other vaccine. Murdoch has huge interests still in the vaccine industry so it's just a matter of watching the commentators slamming everything else but always drawing the line at any criticism of the vaccine.
One day, it should make a good study for students of journalism. It is a classic example of being honest about everything but when it comes to encroaching on your interests, they must never cross over the line. It is becoming so obvious that it is almost making them look stupid. They never extend their criticisms to ask WHY this is being done, except for the Trump Derangement Syndrome argument but that gets a bit weak when it is being put up as the reason in Australia for the clamp down of treatments, the exaggerations of the dangers of Covid19 and the stifling of and arrests of those protesting loss of freedoms. It's like watching a movie when you know what's really going on. A bad movie.
Benedetta, one positive to all of this is that whereas I would normally use the three minute rule before talking about the dangers of vaccines, now I often have an opening without having to wait that long. Every time someone just begins to speak about how things don't make sense or how they think there must be another agenda, I am now able to put my two cents worth in immediately. I have to perfect it though and maybe hand out slips with websites and facebook pages to hand out. That will be on my 'to do' list. I am sure a percentage will think I am mad but for every one person who I can reach, there will be others they will reach.

Trumps the vaccine hesitant its great skill how he can reflect what he is and doing onto his competitors whilst shooting down Fauci,the CDC,FDA, et-al just like a real anti vaccine terminator taking down the enemy.

Have you seen this boy?

MMR RIP

Benedetta

LOL.

Yes, this is confusing.
We got Gates meeting with the president.
WHO gets defunded. But then Trump is saying good things about another Gates -- foundation organization, but then not long afterwards we have Gates discussing the facts that Trump is not on the vaccine bandwagon.

Trump playing Three D chess? I so very much hope so.
Trump Playing his cards close to his vest? I pray and pray with seriousness that is it so.

What I do know is that every one I meet out in our community seem to be on to Gates and Fauci. The comments I have heard have dropped my jaw open and left me so pleased and surprised. I thought that I, and I alone knew, or cared about these things.
Now I am finding that I am not alone. I am not alone, I mean it is one thing to come here on "Age of Autism", and whine and complain; and read, and learn:: But it is another thing to have those in my community speak so!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

It is so up lifting, so makes my soul sing with joy!

My cousins from Ohio that voted for Hillary know all about Fauci. They told me this time around instead of me telling them. The Hospice nurse, the veteran's nurse, both had things to say. My sister-in-law says Fauci is evil.

People are for the first time are paying attention to who exactly is in control of the standards of medicine, and vaccines. It is not me talking it; and them looking at me like I have a wart on my nose. Surely you all here know how that feels!

If the past is any indication, Harris added, those experts will “be muzzled, they’ll be suppressed, they will be sidelined....”

Gee, if only Trump had a network of “suppressed” experts he could draw on whom have been “sidelined” marginalized, derided, ridiculed, as “anti-vax” to counter Fauci’s narrative, which I think is fair to say is the Democrats narrative, because they only listen to despots. They exploited Dr Immanuel’s religious beliefs to bury HCQ. When Dr Atlas was tapped & put in the spotlight, all of Pharmedia, criticized his area of expertise. There are countless immunology, toxicology, & epidemiology experts who could bury Fauci. Why are Republicans &/ or third party candidates so incapable of successfully using this resource?

This is just politics. Trump needs a vaccine to show that he is taking steps to control the epidemic so he will be re-elected. Biden-Harris are in favor of a vaccine but do not take Trump’s word for its safety and efficacy. To show they don’t trust Trump and neither should you. Meanwhile, the Russian vaccine seems to be working as well as most vaccines (I haven’t heard of reactions, but am sure they have occurred or will occur. But every person will always have to do a risk-benefit calculation for his particular circumstances. Dying of Covid , as so many have, is terrible, but in many (most?) cases can be prevented by D3, zinc, treated with HCQ/azithromycin/zinc or Ivermectin/doxycycline.)

I think there are better, safer alternatives to vaccines, but those who want them should be free to get them. I think the Russian vaccine has prevented many cases and deaths. I’m pretty sure the others will too. If that’s enough for you, get it, but be aware that extremely serious reactions may occur. But also be aware that opinions like these are mostly to score political points. There is no right-wrong on this. There are risks and benefits.

Unfortunately our country is so divided politically that EVERYTHING IS NOW POLITICAL …. SCIENCE, PROFESSIONAL SPORTS, MEDIA, ACADEMIA, THERE IS NO ESCAPTING POLITICS IN OUR COUNTRY TODAY.

There is no question that Covid has been "politicized" from the very beginning .. and … it has only gotten worse the longer it remains an issue. I cringe every time I hear Trump speak of his "warp speed" to manufacture and distribute a vaccine … the absolutely LAST thing Trump should be doing is creating the appearance that SAFETY is not as high a priority as SPEED is .. after all is said and done … a vaccine that eventually proves UNSAFE AND HARMFUL will be HIS LEGACY … even though the true culprits will be our public health agencies and vaccine manufacturers who TOLD HIM IT WAS SAFE.

In his defense .. he does say he would much prefer a TREATMENT rather than a VACCINE … and so far our public health experts have done all they could to DISCOURAGE A TREATMENT .. as the prefer a VACCINE. It is my hope that someday there will be CRIMINAL PROSECUTIONS FOR THOSE WHO HAVE USED COVID TO ADVANCE THEIR OWN FINANCIAL INTERESTS .. such as denying HDC to thousands who would have benefitted from that drug … the same can be said for BLOOD PLASMA which has only recently FINALLY been approved by FDA.

These TREATMENTS were denied to thousands … for no other reason than personal gain for individuals and industry. IF TRUE … THEY SHOULD BE PROSECUTED FOR CRIMES AGAINST HUMANITY .. THE SAME FOR ANYONE WHO UNLEASHES A VACCINE THAT PROVES UNSAFE AND HARMFUL.

We should all check her record on SB277 to see whether that accusation is true.

I botched the last post, here is what I meant.

"Sometimes you make the right decision, sometimes you make the decision right."
Phil McGraw

The above should be the epigraph of a book called "How To Do Political Science".

The book review would read.

"Cowardice asks the question, is it safe? Expediency asks the question, is it politic? Vanity asks the question, is it popular? But conscience asks the question, is it right? And there comes a time when one must take a position that is neither safe, nor politic, nor popular, but one must take it because it is right."
