Trump argues U.S. wouldn’t have COVID-19 vaccine if he weren’t president

On Wednesday, former President Donald Trump argued that had he not been in the Oval Office, the United States would likely have not received a COVID-19 vaccine “for 5 years”.

“I hope everyone remembers when they’re getting the COVID-19 (often referred to as the China Virus) Vaccine, that if I wasn’t President, you wouldn’t be getting that beautiful ‘shot’ for 5 years, at best, and probably wouldn’t be getting it at all,” Trump said in an emailed statement.

“I hope everyone remembers!” he continued.

According to the Biden administration though, when they entered office, the previous administration had left them with no roadmap to the distribute vaccines throughout the U.S. This claim, it should be noted, has been challenged by critics.

The former president’s statement came the same day that Andy Slavitt, a senior advisor to President Joe Biden’s coronavirus response team, announced that one in four adults in the country have now received their first dose of a vaccine.

When Biden took the reins in January, he said that he wanted to see 100 million vaccinations administered during his first 100 days in office.

50 days into his presidency, over 95.7 million vaccine doses have been administered in the U.S. since vaccination efforts commenced in mid-December, according to the most recent data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) as of Thursday. Of that number, more than 62.4 million people—or 18.8% of the population—have received at least one shot, while 32.9 million people—or 9.9%—have been fully vaccinated.

Moreover, the number of daily vaccinations has surpassed two million and, according to Biden, his administration will reach their goal weeks earlier than anticipated.

This new vaccination data comes as the number of COVID-19 cases in the U.S. climbs past 29 million and the number of coronavirus-related deaths soars past 529,000 since the start of the pandemic one year ago on Thursday, according to Johns Hopkins University.

Right now, there are three COVID-19 vaccines federally approved in the U.S. Both the respective vaccines from Pfizer and Moderna require two doses, whereas the recently approved Johnson & Johnson one is just a single shot.

Biden has also stated that there will be enough vaccines for every American adult before the end of May. On Wednesday, the president unveiled a deal to secure 100 million more Johnson & Johnson vaccine doses. Any surplus, he said, would be shared with other countries once every single American has been vaccinated.

Disney’s progressive ‘Strange World’ cartoon flops with disastrous $18M opening on a $180M budget

Disney’s attempt to push the woke agenda in children’s entertainment has royally flopped at the box office. “Strange World” features a gay teen as the main character and follows his romance; there is an environmental message as well.

Opening weekend sales came in well below projections, grossing a mere $11.9 million over the three-day weekend and $18.6 million over the five-day Thanksgiving holiday.

The Wrap called the movie a “historic bomb” due to its $180 million reported budget. Variety projected that the flick could lose as much as $100 million.

The Washington Times reports “the movie centers on a family of explorers embarking on a journey to save their planet from a mysterious environmental crisis, but ‘tries too hard to earn the diversity merit badge,’ as the MovieWeb review says.”

Not only is Disney attempting to impose propaganda on youth, but it has zero bravery in doing so. In countries where there is virtually zero acceptance and tolerance for homosexuality, Disney opted to skip out. According to CartoonBrew20, Disney did not release in international markets including China and the Middle East.

The Washington Times reports:

The film’s poor reception contributed to the perception of wokeness-run-amok at Disney, which was criticized for the lesbian kiss scene in “Lightyear,” a $200 million animated feature released in June that has grossed $115 million domestically, according to BombReport.

Last week, Disney rehired Bob Iger to replace CEO Bob Chapek, who landed the company in a feud with Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis over the state law barring instruction on sexual orientation and gender identity in grades K-3.
