Alex Jones Hammers Trump

Alex quite rightly called Donald Trump to account for his continued endorsement of the vaccines and the vaccine boosters:

“This is an emergency Christmas Day warning to President Trump,” Jones said in Saturday’s video.

“You are either completely ignorant about the so-called vaccine gene therapy you helped ram through with Operation Warp Speed, or you are the most evil man who has ever lived to push this toxic poison on the public and to attack your constituents when they simply try to save their lives and the lives of others.

“Recently, Candace Owens attempted to confront you politely face-to-face with the fact that the so-called vaccines are causing a lot of deaths and illnesses,” Jones said. “And you doubled down, saying that nobody has been hurt by these shots and that is just a flat-out lie.”

I think Donald Trump is the greatest US President since Andrew Jackson. And I think Alex Jones is entirely correct to hold Donald Trump’s feet to the fire over Trump’s insistence on backing the vaccines despite the fact that the science and the statistics have now conclusively determined that they are a) unsafe, b) worse than ineffective against Covid, and c) dangerous.

The basic problem, in my opinion, is that Trump is a Boomer. His skepticism is limited. His understanding of vaccines is limited to “that thing the doctors did that wiped out polio before NASA went to the Moon”. At the end of the day, he’s going to believe whatever “the best” people tell him to believe and do whatever “the experts” tell him to do. And he’ll do that right up until the moment that “the best” people tell him the opposite, and then he’ll perform a 180 that will leave observers gasping in complete disbelief.

Do I blame Trump for endorsing the vaccines and bragging about Warp Speed? Of course. Does it change my opinion of him? Not in the least. It’s not as if we didn’t know he was a Boomer.
