Americans have shown a profound willingness to get inoculated against the COVID vaccine. Before Joe Biden took office, he said that he hoped the country would reach 100 million inoculations in his first 100 days. At the moment the country is averaging more than 2 million vaccinations a day, doubling that pace.
Not all are interested in the shot, however. A recent poll showed that almost half of people who voted for Trump won’t be getting the shot.
The obvious reason these people are refusing the vaccine is the way that Trump downplayed the illness and the severity. But consistent with her commitment to both-sidesing every issue, Meghan McCain today placed the blame on Kamala Harris.
The View’s token Conservative referenced the time that the Vice President said she would trust the Doctors on vaccines rather than Trump. Harris told CNN’s Dana Bash, “I would not trust Donald Trump” if a vaccine were rushed out before the election, adding, “And it would have to be a credible source of information that talks about efficacy and the reliability of whatever he’s talking about. I will not take his word for it.”
McCain then said:
“So she’s expressing skepticism about the vaccine under the Trump Administration. A lot of Republicans I know are expressing skepticism about to vaccine under the Biden Administration which is why this has been so dangerous that this has become so politicized. Both sides are equally responsible for this.”
