    He got me in the Texans forum a few days ago. Never again, but I've said that for 10? years.

    People should not confuse rapid Covid vaccine development as a result of a sitting president or leader just because it happens during their time. But also credit the role they played.

    Warp speed was initiated under the Trump admin. A number of companies received or accepted funding for vaccine R&D. But not all.

    The first covid vaccine with an emergency use authorization in the US was the Pfizer BioNTech partnership covid vaccine. Pfizer is an American company but decided to NOT accept federal funding. BioNTech is a Germany company and DID accept $445M funding from the gov of Germany. One reason why they were so successful was because BioNTech was already an expert in mRNA technology (they were already working on a mRNA flu vaccine for Pfizer) and already designed a covid vaccine in mid-Jan 2020 (yes, mid-Jan and you can thank the Chinese for releasing the genome of SARS-Cov-2 early).

    So, literally, the first EUA covid vaccine in the US has nothing to do with the Trump admin. It was an international effort that was developed by Turkish immigrants in Germany supported by American giant Pfizer and funded by the German's government. The only Trump admin involvement was a purchase agreement for 100m doses.

    Of course, there are always exceptions, but I don't think many of them are stupid. However, I believe many of them are victims. Trumpers often feel victimized. They aren't wrong.

    They look stupid because Trump is the new boss of their ideas and beliefs. Their ideas and belief filters aren't of their own anymore. They have been reconfigured to seek confirmation for their boss's beliefs and to reject dissent from their boss. Very good employees. Unwitty victims.

    Now hang on a minute. These are grown ass adults who are responsible for what they read, what they believe, and what they say.

    Sure, the proliferation of social media conspiracy theory crap has a major role, but we cannot absolve people of responsibility for their actions and views.

    No reasonable person believes this type of nonsense. Be better.

    That's right, it's closer to 530,000 dead.

    By my math, that's over 120,000 Benghazis.

    No, people are responsible for their ideas, views, beliefs and identity. It’s too bad they let those control them instead of having control over them.

    Ah yes, the American Liberal. Absurdly blames the President who delivered the vaccine to us for all deaths from a once in a lifetime virus...skips assigning blame to anyone else at any other level of government (Cuomo/Wolf/Murphy/Newsome/Whitmer literally sending COVID patients to nursing homes)...and also fast forwards right past any personal responsibility for individuals who died from COVID... but doesn't stop there! The American Liberal also downplays and mocks the VOLUNTARY choice of Hillary Clinton and Barry Obama to not send aid/backup to our embassy in Libya, thereby choosing for Americans to die...all for political expediency.

    You literally can't make this stuff up folks! The American Liberal simply cannot think clearly due to their emotional rage. Be advised. These people are out there in society today, doubled-masked, sipping soy milk and dropping micro aggressions on anyone who dares to disagree with them.

    GOOD DAY

    I’m sure they’d feel much worse if they weren’t under such heavy sedation.

    It's hard to make less sense than that statement.
