Covid Charlatans Blame Trump as Vaccine Narrative Collapses
"The Trump Vaccine" to be made the root of all evils
COVID vaccine quacks and charlatans, who for about a year thought of themselves as big winners, are now abandoning “the COVID narrative” in droves and fiercely fighting each other.
A famous well-paid “misinformation fighter” David Gorski, for example, is now calling fake “Covid health experts” Monica Gandhi and Leana Wen “misinformation spreaders”. Why is David Gorski so upset with his fellow Covidians? He is upset because Monica Gandhi and Leana Wen jumped the COVID ship, are now trying to distance themselves from their previous acts, and are “bravely” criticizing masks in hopes to score some points with “Covid skeptics. David Gorski is older and less flexible and is staying the course for now. He is mad at Leana and Monica. Enjoy the exchange below.
This is not an isolated phenomenon and reflects changing times.
The failure of “Covid vaccines” becomes more obvious and millions of people are upset about having been forced to take the vaccines due to Democrat-led vaccine mandates. So, the Covid charlatans and Democrat leadership are looking for someone to blame, in anticipation of the November elections and very pointed questions that they will be asked if they lose.
Guess who will they blame? President Trump, of course. It is already beginning:
There is a lot of irony to unpack here, but the intent is obvious: lay a path to blame Trump for Covid vaccines. They are hoping to make us believe that the vaccines failed because the “evil Orange Man” made these vaccines and pressured the FDA to approve them.
However, the facts are much more nuanced:
Trump knew nothing about vaccines. Covid vaccines were developed at NIH and Moderna and Trump had zero influence on any decisions involving design or makeup of Covid vaccines. He or his aides would have no idea if asked for any technical suggestions. Any implications that Trump somehow influenced the makeup of “Covid vaccines” have no factual basis due to his utter ignorance of biomedical science.
Trump did, indeed, push the FDA to approve Covid vaccines because of upcoming 2020 elections. FDA “heroically resisted” Trump’s pressure, had no problem keeping him frustrated, and indeed the approval of Covid vaccines was delayed past election. (The approval was, of course, rushed anyway and was based on fraudulent trials). Pfizer, conveniently, delayed its submission of its’ emergency use authorization application until two weeks after the election.
After the 2020 election, the FDA and the CDC would never again “resist” attempts to speed up approvals. Witness the latest comical story, when the FDA charlatans chose the “BA.5 variant booster” that did not even exist at the time of the decision and had seen exactly zero testing. The federal government bought 171 million doses of what was not even approved by the FDA yet!
Throughout the entirety of the pandemic, not one FDA or CDC worker quit, declared opposition to the reckless vaccination program, and spoke firmly against vaccinating young people. Not one. Yes, two persons (Marion Gruber and Philip Krause) did quit, but they only made the vaguest passes about how things are not quite exactly right and went on to enjoy their retirement. Please remember this when the FDA workers all start claiming how they were unhappy with “subversion of science” and with other Covid quackery. The fact is that they did NOT rise during the darkest hour, and that cannot ever be made up for. This makes the entire FDA complicit with all “rushed decisions”.
Trump did not institute “vaccine mandates”. We do not know what he would do, hypothetically, if he remained president. That is a perfectly irrelevant question. What is relevant is that he left the White House, and the new Democratic leadership went full speed vaccinating as many people as possible, and switched to forced vaccinations in August and September of 2021. Nobody can blame Trump for that.
Trump did approve of the infamous “Warp Speed” plan of creating a radically new concoction, based on a failed mRNA delivery technology that for decades never yielded a successful product, against a novel coronavirus despite the history of NO successful coronavirus vaccines ever developed. This plan was either insanity or an act of evil, depending on who you believe. Trump had an obligation to invite a variety of smart and independent people who would honestly look at this plan from all angles. He did not do that.
Well after he left the White House, Trump continued supporting COVID vaccines because he thought it reflected well on him as he “brought the vaccines to the market”. I will never forget that. Trump did, however, denounce vaccine mandates.
Things will Change Soon
Two things are likely to happen:
Trump will be blamed for Covid vaccines. That is unlikely to affect independently-minded people but will provide liberals with an intellectually easy exit from their cognitive dissonance.
Trump will denounce Covid vaccines, will declare himself defrauded by Tony Fauci, and will blame the Biden administration for everything that happened since January of 2021. That would be correct in a very narrow sense, but would also miss the larger picture.
President Trump, in 2020, had an obligation, as President, to NOT be defrauded by dishonest science advisers. He failed there and did not stop or question the insanity of Covid vaccine plan, and did not ask anyone who could explain to him the dangers of vaccination with unproven leaky vaccines during a raging pandemic. Nevertheless, to the extent that his denunciations would help prosecute Covid charlatans, they would be a good thing.
For another take on this, please read El Gato’s post, which is quite interesting.
One Politician Got Covid Mostly Right
I often hear how “nobody got this pandemic right and it is not Trump’s fault that he was mistaken about Covid vaccine”. Perhaps. It is hard to predict the future. However, one politician was right about Covid from the beginning.
Here’s no one other than Tucker talking about “Donald Trump vaccine killing people”. Hm.
The current leadership, as well as the corporate press, desperate to win elections and realizing the gravity of their responsibility, will try to blame Trump for Covid vaccines.
While such misdirection of blame would be factually incorrect and intellectually dishonest, Trump is NOT a Covid saint and, unfortunately, missed several opportunities to get things right.
What do you think?
