7. he is vaccinated though

https://www.texastribune.org/2020/12/22/greg-abbott-texas-vaccine/

Gov. Greg Abbott received the COVID-19 vaccine Tuesday in Austin, saying he wanted to show Texans how "safe and easy" it is.

"I will never ask any Texan to do something that I’m not willing to do myself," Abbott said moments before getting vaccinated at a televised event at Ascension Seton Medical Center.

11. Good for him

Notably right on cue: almost eight months to the day since his vaccination.

I think eight months is going to be a magic number on that booster.

33. The 8 months is just coincidence.

I was vaccinated 5 months ago, and a friend who was vaccinated after I was was diagnosed with COVID on Sunday.

And I probably won't experience the full pleasures of schadenfreude

At least for those who can afford such scientific treatments.

19. Can all Texans get tested daily and receive an immediate Regeneron antibody infusion?

What about the 11,000 Texans who have tested positive so far today? Are they all getting their antibody treatments so they don't die?

24. Because vaccines are not 100% effective.

But daily seems kind of excessive.

27. Why would they give him monoclonal drugs this fast? Does he have bad symptoms?

Is he ready to go to the hospital?

Does everyone get the monoclonal therapy as soon as they test positive?

I hope he chokes on a rabbit.

34. Probably because of his paralysis.

People with spinal cord injuries are very susceptible to respiratory illnesses.

35. Greg is being given special treatment including third vaccine and unwarranted monoclonal antibodies

Greg should not have received a third does of a vaccine nor should he have been given monoclonal antibodies if he is not showing symptoms. Greg is special



"Governor Abbott is fully vaccinated against COVID-19, in good health, and currently experiencing no symptoms," Mark Miner, the governor's communications director, said in a statement. "Everyone that the Governor has been in close contact with today has been notified. Texas First Lady Cecilia Abbott tested negative."....

Abbott has told people he received a third booster dose of a vaccine, two sources said. Abbott's office did not respond to a request for comment about a booster shot. Except for people with compromised immune systems, booster shots have not been authorized by the Food and Drug Administration, although the Biden administration is expected to announce a program to administer them soon.


In addition, it was not proper for Greg to get monoclonal antibodies when he had no symptoms.

36. Because Abbott knows he's a con man and now he's scared shitless.

Pump him up with everything available, because he has to continue the grift. Hopefully the good folks of Texas wake up and see Abbott for what he is; a Charlatan, racketeer and cold blooded murderer.
