Biden made the poorly-timed and wildly inappropriate remark whereas in Dawson Springs, Kentucky, one of many areas hardest hit by final Friday’s tornados. TMZ was in a position to receive video of Biden’s jab right here.
The president made the remark whereas masked exterior (as a result of beauty theatre is at all times in play) surrounded by a handful of different unmasked survivors. It’s not clear whether or not they wanted to indicate proof of vax standing with a purpose to stroll by way of the remaining rubble that was as soon as their properties and companies.
President Biden’s request for Rodgers to vaccinate comes at a time when the NFL is coping with an abundance of COVID instances. Of course, almost all of the gamers and coaches who’ve contracted the virus should not solely asymptomatic and feeling advantageous, many are additionally already vaccinated.
Biden is shameless. He directed the main target away from the horrific injury brought on by current storms to advertise the jab, at the same time as he was talking to fellow Americans in disaster. If he opts to tour another tornado-ravaged cities, he might need to take into account leaving the vaccination standing of NFL gamers out of the dialog.
At the very least, he ought to give it a shot.
