Ex-Presidents Urge Americans to Get Vaccinated

Source: Political Wire

All of the living former presidents have joined in a new ad campaign urging Americans to get the coronavirus vaccine—all of them, that is, except one.

Donald Trump didn’t take part in the campaign and instead issued a statement saying “I hope everyone remembers” the vaccine wouldn’t exist without him.

2. This is a wonderful & hopeful video advertisement for the vaccine.

The best part is who’s NOT in the video!

I just found out that I may be eligible for the vaccine soon here in Georgia!

All teachers and school staff started getting vaccinated beginning on March 10 here in Georgia. The public outcry about Governor Kemp not allowing teachers and school staff to get vaccinated was heard loud and clear by Kemp, who is running for re-election.

I am so hopeful that my child with asthma will be able to get a vaccine by late this year or early next year. Maybe, they will be able to go to school in person by the 2021-2922 school year.

3. Best thing today on CBS

Trump was not called by his name. They referred to him as "the other guy" and I loved it.

4. I so love that Carter was able to participate in this important message.

He is just the most amazing man and a hero to me and the millions of people he has helped over the world thru Habitat for Humanity.

6. Great ad. Trump would have ruined it.

And claiming there would be no vaccine without him is just one more lie. He never gives up his lying. I’m sure he’ll be doing it on his death bed.

12. It's just that, as always, it has to be about him

Trump is once more displaying his pathological narcissism.

13. Hope he lives well past 100 years of age

Not to listen to his lying, but to enjoy seeing him bald and wearing an orange jump suit in his tiny cell
for 25+ years.

... during the previous four years?

This PSA should be played on all tv stations including Faux Noise on a daily basis.

What are they still hoping to accomplish? Killing More of us?

11. The pole dancer and husband secretly got their shots while running out

of the WH. Still no one has found the 20 million doses that were listed on the US inventory......WTF is the press not looking into that instead of the Biden vaccine injection counts.

14. If 20 million doses did disappear

And it wasn't because of a book keeping or tracking error, we know tRumps found a way to make money
off of it. I had forgot about that, and you're correct where is the press? Or the DOJ?

17. I got mine!!!

Got my first Moderna shot today, #2 scheduled for April 8.

Wife and I tested positive six weeks ago. I had no symptoms, have had three negative tests.

She was knocked for a loop -- no breathing problems, just had no energy. For ten days she spent 24 hours a day in bed, napping on the sofa, barely ate, terrible headache coming and going. Doc put her on a steroid regimen that ended a few days ago. She cannot take vaccine until two weeks after ending the steroids, so, she's scheduled in two weeks for her first shot. She's up now, runs out of energy, headaches recurring less and less.

We are in a rural area of VA where the vaccine has been slow to arrive, now, our little local hospital is holding clinics every other week, they hope to have supplies to hold two-day clinics every week starting end of March.

18. This is great!

Glad to see adults doing adult things for a change. And I'm not sorry at all that MF45 isn't in the video. He would ruin it no matter what.


Anyway, I want to, but I'm not old enough.

I'll be 65 in 6 months. The pharmacist told me yesterday that they're going to have a 60-65 age group, not just jump to 55-65. Do the pharmacists have an inside scoop on what the next groups will be?

20. Well, he's right in a way

If Trump wouldn’t have started a trade war with China, the wet markets the virus came from wouldn’t have been reopened. There would have been no pandemic, and no vaccine would have needed to be created.

22. Well, gosh. I would never have thought to get it without that.

Just a bit of sarcasm here. The problem isn't that people aren't lining up to get it, the problem is that there's still not enough vaccine for all of us who want it. That ad should be held back for a few weeks to reach those who actually are hesitating.

23. I don't think the AD is intended for most DUers

There are many out there whose trust in science has been undermined by various disinformation campaigns. The sooner and more often we can reach them, the better.
