Donald Trump sent his supporters really conflicting messages when it came to vaccines. The former President was desperate for credit for the vaccine being created when he was in office. But he also spent close to a year calling the decision to get inoculated a personal one.
The hosts of the Fox News network have taken their cue from Trump. While their company mandated that they get the shot, many have pushed vaccine hesitancy.
According to Julia Banderas, Fox is doing the right thing. She says that the best way to convince the unvaxxed is to tell them not to get the shot.
The Fox host told viewers:
“I’m all for vaccinations — got all three shots myself — but I think the problem is when you tell somebody they have to do it, they purposely don’t want to do it. I think more and more Americans are actually are more turned off by the vaccine simply like you would a child. When I tell my 5-year-old not to do something, he does it.”
Banderas continued, “So maybe it’s best not to tell the American people what to do and maybe they’ll do the right thing! I don’t know. That’s just the mom of three talking.”
