It’s time for an intervention for Donald Trump, according to one radio host in MAGAland. However, he’s not talking about Trump’s efforts to sow doubt in the election system, or even about the drug addiction that one insider has long claimed the former president suffers.
Instead, it’s because Trump, who has already suffered COVID-19 once and knows how devastating it can be, has made the choice to get vaccinated against the virus — and then to get a booster shot once it was recommended by health experts. Moreover, Trump, who initially kept his vaccination a secret, has now openly shared with the public about his decision, even speaking over a media personality who tried to claim the vaccines don’t work.
He’s getting a lot of backlash for this, and according to the Daily Beast, the latest round is pro-Trump radio host Wayne Allyn Root saying that the former president needs an intervention and is “in total delusion.”
“He’s so horribly wrong on this issue, and the best way to put it, ironically, is that he’s dead wrong, because people are dying! When everyone I know dies, you are getting the blame, President Trump!”
A number of conspiracy theorists have used a complete misunderstanding of how VAERS, the Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System, works to convince themselves and/or their audiences that people are being killed by the COVID-19 vaccines, despite all scientific evidence that the vaccine offers life-saving protections.
However, Root doesn’t seem to be giving up on Trump — he recently posted on Creators to “celebrate the Donald Trump Christmas miracle” — that is, to express joy over Trump’s polling and assure readers that the ousted one-term president is preparing to make a comeback.
“Even though you’ve never heard about any of this in the media, Trump has just made the biggest and fastest comeback in history. In less than one year’s time, Trump has risen from the ashes like a phoenix. He is a superhuman miracle.”
Still, Root seems to think that promoting vaccination as safe and effective is a danger to the public.
