  1. This is the cost of ‘downplaying’ the virus because it surfaced during a GQP ‘administration’ in an election year.

    1. NB: Trump & Melania got vaccinated secretly in January 2021! Most Fox News TV hosts are definitely vaccinated because it’s Fox News company policy to follow their *Clear Pass* “vaccination passports” system. *HYPOCRITES!*

    2. @Augie Rockero I think like most AMERICANS that our current president is to blame for the astrocytes of Americans down fall when he became president elect back in December after weeks of counting illegal ballots Americans seen what a cruel live our government has bestowed on the legal vote of an election,in return of the travisty and disorder, you get the outcome of today’s America being told that all Americans should be ashamed of yourself, not just

    3. Trump the terrorist admits downplaying a PANDEMIC, admits lying on several occasions, admits he could shoot someone in the street and his sheep would still love him, admits grabbing women in inappropriate places and yet his blind, brainwashed, gaslit, flock of ignorant sheep still follow him happily. The pure lack of morals and basic empathy from these insane people is alarming.

    4. @J Wright Well then you should continue passing voter suppression fast because DELTA won’t leave too many MAGATS alive to vote in 2022! LOL!

    1. @Chimalez The studies are being done right now. You don’t hear Biden forcing the military to get the vaccine like he is government employees or the civilians. There is a reason for that GENIUS they are finding out the vaccine does something to the blood which means when there is a mass casualty like warsome people might not be able to get blood transfusions. People like you are slow the military will kick you out if you are allergic to latex gloves. You really think the military is gonna push a non FDA approved medicine on government property without knowing for a fact it’s safe people need to open your eyes you are test rats now in a 1yr if they make the military get the vaccine then that means all of you that took the vaccine past the test. The FLU shot is mandatory in the military but not the covid vaccine JESUS CHRIST SHEEP USE SOME COMMON SENSE AN DO YOUR RESEARCH OMG !!!

    2. @Echo Echo – Look at a map, SFB. It’s red states, and red areas in blue states, where the variant is surging – and it’s because people there aren’t getting vaccinated. Trump’s incompetence and gaslighting is a big part of the reason for this. He’s hurt the nation and his braindead cult is too stupid to see it.

    3. Wait a minute all you Clowns got the shot but NOW Lol your turn your focus to the unvaccinated ppl? Because what again?? The shot don’t work or something you tell me. Your vaccinated ppl are so stupid that your have been proving EVERYTHING the anti vaxxer have been saying.

    1. @S J Also I have found out that anything with a grain of truth to it can be manipulated to fit into conspiracy theory.

    2. @William Shepard exactly….there will be very few MAGAT votes in 2022…that’s why suddenly the MAGAT news did an about face on vaccines recently….too little too late

      Ivanka Trump Praises Her Dad for Vaccine Research Started Under Obama by Dave Gilson Mother Jones

      The vaccine is the direct result of SCIENTISTS AND SCIENCE.

      2013:
      “Moderna’s partnership with the feds to develop messenger RNA technology, which its coronavirus vaccine is based on, began long before the novel coronavirus flared up. The Pentagon funded the company’s mRNA research in 2013, and the federal government gave it $125 million to develop a mRNA-based Zika vaccine in 2016. Its COVID-related work on January 13 appears to have been completed under an already existing research agreement with the NIH,…”

  2. My sister has paranoid personality disorder. She thinks everybody’s lying and conspiring behind her back all the time to force her to do things against her will. Sounds exactly like all these antivaxxers.

    1. Best wishes to you and your family for careful management and compassionate care. Kindly, Dennis

    2. This sounds the whole corrupt gop, trumpublicans, and their sheep…
      The GOPs strategy is to terrify and manipulate their voters. Make them think the end of the world is coming and they are the only one’s who can stop it. It’s the only way they know how to win. Who wants to live in constant fear and paranoia? Its unhealthy. Paranoid schitchoprania at its finest.

    3. Your daily gentle reminder that the criminal, donald trump, who is responsible for ALL of the misery that this country is experencing right now, is STILL walking free

    4. You sounds totally like your sister. Stay home wear 3 masks and and wait for the booster. it look’s more like family thing

    1. They will surely will. Like one patient in Houston. He was in ventilator and was begging for a vaccine. The nurse gave him a sad answer by saying “ sorry, it is too late.”

    2. @Priscilla Robb Yup, takes three weeks to be utilised by the immune system, he probably thought it would work like a headache pill.

    3. A reality test is coming for people who follow Trump, bad information and conspiracy theorist influencers on Youtube.

    4. You’re absolutely right. Unfortunately for most of their family & friends, death is not reversible.

  3. STILL: “When stupidity is considered patriotism, it is unsafe to be intelligent.”
    – Isaac Asimov

    1. Please quote me the source of this thing you attribute to Isaac Asimov. I never read this in Heavy Metal magazine.

    2. and stupid people are lining up for shots to be ‘patriotic’.
      The HIGHEST from of patriotism is dissent.

  4. Hospitals should have the right to refuse entry and treatment of non-vaccinated people. That might move things along pretty well. Also, it will cull the republican’s base.

    1. Thats a silly statement, hospitals should not decide on the that basis and as for culling you should know better Dr Kevorkian.

    2. And what about people like me who desperately want to be vaccinated but can’t be due to an allergy? All of the available vaccines contain polyethylene glycol, which would cause me to go into anaphylatic shock.
      Believe me, I am extremely frustrated with the people who can be vaccinated but *choose* not to. It’s frustrating to constantly fear for my health. I’m one of the people who needs _everyone else_ to be vaccinated to protect me. Please don’t forget that people like me exist… The world seems to be forgetting.

    3. @Fossil Draws I dont think the OP was referring to ppl like you. And that sucks for you, there are LOTS of folks like you…no one with an ounce of sense would lump you in with the anti vaxxers.

    1. The problem with that idea is that they will be succeeding in preventing Democrats from voting in even larger numbers than their own crazy constituents are dying off.

  5. If the situation wasn’t so deadly serious, this would be hilarious. But this level of rank ignorance is terrifying,

    1. “You have hundreds of thousands of people pouring across every month,” DeSantis said. “Not only are they letting them through, they’re farming them out all across the country, putting them on planes, putting them on buses. Do you think they’re worrying about COVID for that? Of course not.”

      “This is a guy who ran for office saying he’s going to shut down the virus,” DeSantis added. “And what has he done? He’s imported more virus from around the world by having a wide open southern border.”

      “Why don’t you do your job?” the Florida Republican said during a press conference Wednesday. “Why don’t you get this border secure? And until you do that, I don’t wanna hear a blip about COVID from you, thank you.”
      – Ron DeSantis
      ‘MIC DROP’

      Coronavirus cases among illegal migrants have been surging at the southern border, and in one sector the number of infected migrants recently skyrocketed almost 900%.
      “No more America First”
      – Joe Biden

    2. @Jesse Watters ah yes, let’s blame illegal immigrants for COVID spread! It’s a very Republican answer. I mean, blaming immigrants is a staple of the xenophobic and racist right wing, and it is getting impossible to deny the damage of COVID again. So the right does what it always does when their lies collide with undeniable reality: deflect and blame others.

      That said, if the vaccine is useless and all those immigrants were spreading COVID, you’d think there would be a strong correlation between being a border state and COVID, but bizarrely it is all of the Republican unvaccinated states! For some reason California and New Mexico look fine but Florida and Louisiana are on fire.

      “They’re bringing in disease” is one of the most overplayed and unsubtle of the racist tropes of the right.

      Here you dropped this mic, you’ll probably need that.

  6. “… because there seems to be some confusion.”
    No, it’s called rampant stupidity. In your country, however, over the last number of years, this is nothing new.

  7. The guy asked ” what’s in the vaccine?”
    It will make me proud if he can spell and understand the meaning of “vaccine”..
