Since day one, Donald Trump has exposed how the D.C. sausage is made.
He takes no prisoners and has no qualms about calling out members of his own party for their wild hypocrisies and contradictions, especially as of late, as the vaccine becomes a politicized monolith.
However one personally feels about taking the vaccine is up to them, but Trump’s accomplishments in securing its widespread availability during the pandemic’s peak shows real foresight and true leadership.
Take the vaccine if you want, don’t take it if you don’t want — that’s been Trump’s overarching message as Democrats continue to push for mandates and other wild schemes to force Americans to get the shot.
However, Trump will not stand for the hypocrisy amongst Republican politicians who now refuse to share their vaccine status as it may risk their reelection chances.
On Tuesday, the Former Presidentcalled GOP politicians who choose not to reveal whether they’ve received a booster shot of a COVID-19 vaccine ‘gutless’ in an interview.
Trump previously revealed that he received his booster shot while speaking at one of his “History Tour” live events with Bill O’Reilly in December. The admission received some boos from the crowd, which Trump quickly shut down, saying that his administration “saved tens of millions worldwide” by creating the vaccine.
Trump also pushed back against suggestions the vaccine is not effective when speaking with Candace Owens in December, calling it “one of the greatest achievements of mankind.”
“You got to say it, whether you had it or not, say it,” Trump said. “The fact is, I think the vaccine has saved tens of millions of people throughout the world. I have had absolutely no side effects.”
TRUMP says “I've had the booster,” and says he’s seen politicians asked the same, but dodge.
“The answer is yes, but they don't want to say it. Because they're gutless… Whether you had it or not. Say it.”

And he’s absolutely correct!
Though the reluctance to reveal one’s vaccination status on a private level is understandable given the liberal propensity to dehumanize anyone that reveals themselves as unvaccinated. However, if you’re an elected official, you owe it to your constituents to be truthful about the political monolith that is the coronavirus vaccine.
Many are questioning whether Trump was referring to Republican Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis, who refused to reveal whether he received the booster shot when asked in an interview with Fox News.
“So I’ve done, whatever I did, the normal shot, and, you know, that at the end of the day is people’s individual decision about what they want to do,” he said.
The vaccine is what it is. It’s the Democrats who have created the air of reluctance that currently surrounds it.
Liberals and liberals alone created vaccine hesitancy — and they will pay the price for it.
