WATCH: Dan Crenshaw Tells Fox Viewers to Not Comply With Any More COVID Mandates
It was no surprise that Donald Trump was willing to politicize the COVID-19 pandemic. The former president was desperate to stay in office and willing to do anything to remain.
There are, however, other Republicans who should know better. Dan Crenshaw, who likes to present himself as a principled lawmaker, should know better.
But the Texas Rep. was more than happy to go onto Fox News and stir up more COVID drama. Rather than referencing virus restrictions as a way to protect Americans, he instead says it’s a way of instilling fear. He said last night on Fox News:
“Look, the vaccines are actually effective. I actually believe the FDA’s data on this. Not only are they effective, but the FDA still stands by their assertion and their assessment of the data that says that the vaccines here in the United States are effective against transmission including the delta variant.
So the CDC is in direct confrontation with the FDA. I believe the FDA on this one. I think they tend to be more risk averse, and so they tend to get the science a little bit more right, more often. And I think the CDC has been politicized in this case I think from pressure from the administration.
Again, because I think the Democrats love to instill fear in the hearts of Americans. And I think Americans are really sick of this. They’re over it. They’re not gonna comply, and you shouldn’t comply with any more lockdowns, with any more mandates, none of it.”
