The accompanying audio recordings are amazing. In one, Caputo tells Santa that “If you and your colleagues are not essential workers, I don’t know what is.”

“Ho ho ho!” Santa guffaws. “I love you!”

Can’t make this stuff up.

Health Agency Halts Coronavirus Ad Campaign, Leaving Santa Claus in the Cold
The $250 million federally funded effort had aimed to ‘defeat despair, inspire hope’ on pandemic

Snip
A federal health agency halted a public-service coronavirus advertising campaign funded by $250 million in taxpayer money after it offered a special vaccine deal to an unusual set of essential workers: Santa Claus performers.

As part of the plan, a top Trump administration official wanted the Santa performers to promote the benefits of a Covid-19 vaccination and, in exchange, offered them early vaccine access ahead of the general public, according to audio recordings. Those who perform as Mrs. Claus and elves also would have been included.

The Department of Health and Human Services said Friday the Santa plan would be scrapped. The deal was the brainchild of the official, Michael Caputo, an HHS assistant secretary, who took a 60-day medical leave last month. The rest of the campaign now is under an HHS review.
