Great comment.

I don't love the vaccine but Trump didn't personally develop it and his job was to clear a path for it - which he did.

He absolutely tried to push therapeutics first, and look where that got him.

This statement is a miniature political masterpiece. He sticks it to Fauci and reminds everyone that the vaccine they're slobbering over is only available to them because of Trump.

The only problem is he's set himself up with ZERO outs if long term health issues start to develop in the mutant gene therapy victims. Think about it; if people start developing cancers and infertility problems around 2023 Trump goes down with the GOP ship for a decade or more. It may be politically smart in the short term, but the long term strategy by Trump is potentially castostrophic.

Trump is only responsible for the vaccine being early not the vaccine ? itself.

No, with this, you take the good, you take the bad, you take them both, and then you have. The facts of the vaccine.

The more he claims credit for it, the more he'll get blamed for it should/when it starts maiming people.

Gambling on what medical concoctions they cooked up being safe in the long term is unquestionably the bet of the century.

We'd all best pray to God that Trump's brass balls and gut instinct are right again, because there's no turning back now. Politics be damned, there simply aren't enough "vaccine hesitant" people in the first world to save it if he's wrong.

Even if it does turn out reasonably well, if he runs in 2024, every person with adverse side effects the media is now burying will be dug up and weaponized to crush Trump's sloganeering. It's just stupid politically. It's blunders like this that make me more and more ready for Rand or DeSantis 2024.

SunTzu, Trump allowed big med to quickly produce a lethal vaccine but somehow convinced mostly just his enemies to take it. War is hell.

Keep in mind, there's an email between Fauci and Zuckerberg from Feb 28th, 2020 saying that the vaccines should start phase 1 testing in April 2020, and take three to four months beyond that. This means Fauci knew the vaccine stuff would be ready by the election, but continued telling everyone two to three years at best. Given that he also didn't want to close travel to China seems to suggest to me that they wanted to spread this around early as much as possible and delay the vaccine until people were begging for it.

Yup! And after he recovered he made the therapeutic he used widely available.

Problem is 99% of the left will never see it, so they'll keep going along with their "Faucie ouchie." Unless people end up dying from the vaccine, all of a sudden then they will get their new programming that it's Trump's fault again.

Yep, I've been anticipating it too. Trump gets none of the credit and all of the blame. Par for the course. I still don't see how he could have done differently, though. I mean alternate history is nice and all but because we know that Trump gets all of the blame and none of the credit, whatever else he could have done would have had the same result.

which is not true at all.

I think the jury is still out on that. It looks to me, as much as I dislike the vaccine, that the majority is at least relieved that it's out there. Attributing his statement to merely "his ego" seems like an attempt at mindreading.

I hear you. But other surveys show different results. Certainly there is a great deal of reluctance, for good reason. But not a majority, as far as I can tell.
