This will turn out to be a strategic  mistake.

If fatboy publicly comes out dressed in his favorite furry outfit I would consider listening to something he says.  I have heard from people that his has a goat outfit with real horns that he wore in the residence and occasionally in the oval when meeting his closest aides.

I am fine with him killing off his potential voters. I just wish we could limit the collateral damage.

Just in time for the upcoming fall Delta surge that will impact more unvaccinated children going back to school like my 11-year-old.

Seriously considering fudging his age to get him vaccinated before then.

His support for the vaccine was always tepid and focused on taking credit for it. He never cared if anyone actually got them, he just wanted to be praised for the fact they even existed at all.

God, what a farking pig.

Hurry up and send him to prison for the rest of his life.  He's still doing damage, still costing lives.

Precisely.  It's Trump's MO every time.

If the Republican Party's plan here was to try to hang a spike in COVID cases and deaths on Biden, this just shot that to hell.  They totally own this now.

If they want to trust Trump that badly, they can inject bleach and hydroxychloroquine into themselves and we can wrap this pandemic up by August.

Just go ahead and give him a vaccine line named after him and say he gets a nickel for every dose administered. The MAGA morons would be getting a shot every week for dear leader. Tell him the Fed will cut a check at the end of the year (then charge him for all back taxes and recover the money he charged for secret service protection).
 
2021-07-19 3:19:37 PM  
Wait, you mean the Trump vaccine?  I swear we were supposed to call it the Trump vaccine.

Yep. Children and the immunocompromised are the only reasons why I don't exactly feel safe in just sitting back and let them all die (or at least end up as long haulers).

Well, that, plus they're also variant factories, which is bad news for everyone.

Every day he works to kill his supporters, and they're opening their mouths and gulping down the deadly kool-aide, begging for more until their dying breaths.

Oh, please. The Trumpers will still blame it on Biden. Unless they can figure out how to blame it on Hillary.

There is still a segment of the population -- hopefully shrinking, but still much larger than we'd like -- that considers him their Dear Leader and believes him far more than any health authority.  We need to know what he's telling those morons.

Just for a moment, ignore the whole "death" thing.

Even if you have health insurance, a week in the hospital is freaking expensive.

And given that right now the unvaccinated are like 97-99% of hospitalizations, staying unvaccinated is like a reverse lottery.

The thing that makes it hard to do basic actuarial math to calculate the expected cost of staying unvaccinated is that we don't really know how bad the upcoming fall/winter delta variant wave is going to be, or what fraction of the unvaccinated are going to get symptomatic infections. But I would not be surprised if the expected cost to an individual of staying unvaccinated comes out to a couple thousand dollars.

And how the hell are we supposed to do that? It doesn't matter what MSNBC, PBS, or any other not-extremist-right-wing news outlet reports on. Trumpers don't watch them. And Fox, OAN, Newsmax and Sinclair will breathlessly extol every utterance Tangerine Mussolini spews like it's the Gospel.

He was spreading vaccine misinformation since the 2016 campaign. He's one of those aholes who says they give children too many vaccines and that parents should make their own schedule. Maybe he thinks that I'm Eric turned out that way because of vaccinations.

Was talking to a guy today who went through the trouble of getting his 12-year-old ID so he can have him vaccinated and he said he made the appt online and they didn't even ask for any ID at all when he showed up.

Hey, Twice Impeached President Trump supporters! Your GEOTUS wants you to die gasping for breath while your family watches on FaceTime.

Also, Louisianans: one of your senators wants you dead as well. He's the one who you voted for because he was "the smart one."

This is going to get bad.  Very, very bad.  As a nation, we need to start asking ourselves some tough questions.

First and foremost, are we going to shut down our economy again like we did last year, only this time in order to accommodate millions of people who refuse to protect themselves.

For now it is a tough question, because (a) kids under 12 can't get vaccinated, (b) older people probably have reduced immunity even when they are vaccinated, and (c) because of immune-compromised people who cannot get the vaccine.

This is something we better start wrestling with now, because the consequences of our actions will be on us a lot sooner than most people realize, whether or not we choose to decide one way or the other.

And he's allowed to, becayse our laws are garbage.

Its been what 9 months since Trump last got infected? He could easily get infected again soon, and he won't have the world best doctors trying to save his life this time.

We wouldnt need to do all that if all these antivaxxers/covid is a hoax assholes were sent to prison for conspiracy to murder. Fark their free speech to promote mass death, they say that shiat on facebook, twitter, tv or radio, they should be sent to prison.

Do you think we can convince that segment of the population to think otherwise? It seems that the only time a Trump worshiper comes back to reality is when their own face is eaten by the leopards.

I've thought about doing the same, but then what do I do when it is actually approved for his age? Try to get it again in order to have a proper record that he is vaccinated, or have airlines, schools, etc. disbelieve the vaccination because they notice it was prior to the approval for his age?At the moment the risks/inconveniences seem to outweigh the benefit. Of course your situation may be different as the rest of the household is vaxxed and none of us are high risk.
 
2021-07-19 3:36:20 PM  
Well it makes sense that Trump would want people to be sceptical about the vaccine, because it only saved his goddamn life.
