The Democrat party claims to be the party of science and data, but when the chips are down, they’ve proved to be one of the most reckless and anti-scientific forces in modern America. It’s truly shameful what they’ll do to win elections, and no one has more shamefully exploited and abused science that vice-presidential candidate Kamala Harris.
The Washington Examiner editorial board writes:
In a September interview with CNN’s Dana Bash, Harris was asked whether she would trust a vaccine released before the end of the year and responded, “I think that we have learned since this pandemic started, but really before that, that there’s very little that we can trust that comes out of Donald Trump’s mouth.”
She went on to question whether health experts would get the final say on the safety of the vaccine.
We all know that Democrats are ready to make the vaccine mandatory, so why the reluctance? Did it have something to do with the fact that President Donald Trump helped accelerate the development of the vaccine? Of course it did:
[Harris] also raised doubts about whether she herself would take a vaccine. “I will say that I would not trust Donald Trump. And it would have to be a credible source of information that talks about the efficacy and the reliability of whatever he’s talking about. I will not take his word for it,” Harris said.
Harris went on to deliver a similar line at the vice presidential debate the following month.
As we noted at the time and repeatedly, the warnings about the release of some sort of “Trump vaccine” were just fearmongering meant to scare up votes and downplay legitimate progress on the vaccine front.
We need to remember this episode when the media inevitably starts beating the drum to force a mandatory vaccine.
