Sad, Lonely Trump Pleads for “Just a Mention” About Vaccine Development
Donald Trump, desperate for any kind of attention, issued a statement on Friday begging for credit for developing the COVID vaccine.
The former president is now alone and isolated in Florida. With no Twitter or Facebook profile, he has resorted to giving press conference to the people who visit his club.
And on a daily basis, Trump has to watch Joe Biden carry out his plan to get millions of Americans vaccinated. It’s going very well and the President currently has a 71% approval rating on his handling of COVID, including 47% of Republicans.
With no social media account to take advantage of, Trump had to whine via a statement. He wrote, “Isn’t it incredible that because of the vaccines, which I and my Administration came up with years ahead of schedule (despite the fact that everybody, including[Anthony] Fauci, said would never happen), that we no longer need masks,” read the statement. “And yet our names are not even mentioned in what everybody is calling the modern day miracle of the vaccines?”
The rant continued, “Without the vaccines, this world would have been in for another 1917 Spanish Flu, where up to 100 million people died. Because of the vaccines we pushed and developed in record time, nothing like that will be even close to happening. Just a mention please!”
While Republican members of congress have given Trump all the power he can handle, his messaging has become increasingly pathetic. Unlike Biden, Americans hated the way he handled the pandemic. A poll taken before the November election showed only 37% of people approving of his response.
