GOP Congressman Scolds Media for Not Asking Democrats About Their Vaccinations, Reporter Informs Him They Have 100% Vaccine Rate

Jul 22nd, 2021, 4:50 pm

Rep. Ronny Jackson (R-TX) chided the media for pestering congressional Republicans about whether they had been vaccinated for Covid-19 but not the Democrats, and was immediately informed by CNN’s Annie Grayer that 100% of his Democratic colleagues had already gotten the shot.

Polls have consistently shown that vaccine hesitancy is higher among Republicans than Democrats, and this is often blamed, at least in part, on GOP politicians’ vocal objections to the vaccines or refusal to answer if they have been vaccinated.

Thursday morning, at a press conference held by the GOP Doctor’s Caucus, Grayer asked the lawmakers if they believed that Republicans needed to be more vocal about getting vaccinated in order to encourage their constituents to get vaccinated too.

“You as a press have a responsibility to ask questions of the Democrats as well,” replied Jackson. “How many Democrats are willing to say whether or not they’ve been vaccinated?”

“One hundred percent of Democrats have said they’re vaccinated,” said Grayer.

Canada's 'Doing Better' on Vaccine Rollout Because of US Political 'Divisiveness' Over Vaccinations

Dr. Anthony Fauci said on Monday that Canada is doing better than the United States in its vaccination rollout right now because of the political divisiveness in the U.S. over vaccines.

CNN’s Kate Bolduan asked the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases director about Canada’s progress in vaccinating their population compared to the United States, recently surpassing the U.S. on percentage of the population that has been completely vaccinated.

Fauci said that Canada’s doing better “not because we trying any less than they are trying,” but because “in Canada you don’t have that divisiveness of people not wanting to get vaccinated, in many respects on the basis of ideology and political persuasion, and that’s something that we’ve been saying for some time now.”

He continued to express concern about vaccines being politicized, saying it “doesn’t make any sense to essentially disregard or don’t pay attention to what’s obvious.”
