    1. @Brad John
      Ignorant and lying troll. Try volunteering at a covid unit maskless and see what happens.

    2. @L Singstock they can but they don’t they rather loot and burn business down or protests

  1. It wasn’t the polling, what happened was the stock market went down on fears of a Delta surge and their Wall St overlords called and told them to change their tune.

    1. @Real100Talk The WH answered Doocey’s question about the WH being in touch with Fox by saying that they are in touch with all networks and news outlets. I think Fox had already planned to come out with a statement about people needing to take COVID and the vaccine serious before Doocey asked Psaki the question. It’s part of Fox’s playbook to plan something sinister to make it look good on them while making it look bad on Democrats. It’s all about the money, nothing else. The GQP and those in cahoots with them, do NOT care about anything or anyone else that does not benefit their greed of money and power.

    2. You make a very good point. The only people Republicans listen to more than Trump are the rich and corporations.

    3. oh, the polling counts, they know thier base is dying of this disease and now they fianlly want to do something about it

    4. @Peter Angelo / Elder Guru I like you Peter. I’m glad there are folks like you in this world.

    1. @Bryan B of you need to ask who is anti vaccine, this conversation to too high for your intellect. Bye bye now.

    2. Yes they can. If they can afford to run away to shelters in New Zealand or fly in a rocket ship, they can afford another lockdown and have tons of money left over to throw at Republican campaigns, from the tax savings alone.

    1. @Moses of Now Racism is the belief that groups of humans possess different behavioral traits corresponding to physical appearance and can be divided based on the superiority of one race over another.[1][2][3][4] It may also mean prejudice, discrimination, or antagonism directed against other people because they are of a different race or ethnicity.[2][3] Modern variants of racism are often based in social perceptions of biological differences between peoples. These views can take the form of *social actions, practices or beliefs, or political systems in which different races are ranked as inherently superior or inferior to each other, based on presumed shared inheritable traits, abilities, or qualities* [2][3][5]

      “This year’s first quarter increase follows a historic surge in Anti-Asian hate crime that started last year. Last year’s first spike occurred in March and April amidst a rise in COVID cases, a World Health Organization pandemic declaration and an increase in political and online stigmatizing of Asians.”

    2. @Moses of Now also, I’m just pointing out Trump is racist which has resulted in historic hate crime agaisnt Asians. Not that you said he is just to clarify.

  2. we all know exactly what it was “ it’s money” these freaking people don’t care if people die! it’s not a coincidence that republicans come out the week that the stock market goes way down!! come on it’s money money money

    1. @Demetria Karnavas Well no. It was the Democrats friend that unleashed the virus on the world. So you were in the ballpark. Good for you.

    2. @Tom Two Keep inventing reasons to expose yourself to a deadly contagious pandemic. Now that your right-wing politicians and pundits who told you vaccination was unnecessary and an infringement on your so-called freedoms, are all reversing themselves, you can go argue with them.

    3. Kamala Harris accused Joe Biden of being a racist and of sexual misconduct. The Harris Biden administration.

    4. @Conservative, Interrupted If you thought Biden was a racist, you would have stood in line to vote for him.

    1. @Mike Swift Part of the problem is that vulnerable people like you are completely clueless in telling fact from fiction. You believe the lies because you desperately want them to be true.

    1. @Buck awwww little snowflake, so sad to see you melting. Worried about something that happened 15 years ago and was corrected and dealt with, not at all concerned with current events.

    2. @Bonnie They need that 15 year whataboutism, they don’t have an argument. Pretty soon they will revert back to Hillary’s emails and Hunter Biden’s laptop.

  3. If you voted for a GOP politician – be aware that most GOP politicians put their career ahead of YOUR LIFE.

    1. @freethinkers Remember that it was Republican Ronald Reagan that gave amnesty to illegals paving the way for the expectation there would be more amnesty to come. The hypocrisy of the Republican Party is astounding.

  4. It’s the money and their base is getting slaughtered like lemmings. GOP is predictable as a re-run of scooby-doo.

    1. @Faux Que You do know that 250 number is rising, right? and almost entirely among the unvaccinated trump base, right? As for the Democrar base, it is mostly vaccinated, and next to none are dying off. My advice: Get vaccinated now

    1. @Ash Roskell, I really don’t care what happens to that old man and I would vote against him in a Republican primary.

    2. @Super Scary Russian Bot but they sure didn’t promote it either and constantly sewed doubt about getting the vaccine they couldn’t stand up and encourage people to get the vaccine they know the data and the science so don’t call it supporting informed decisions when we all know that it’s political and has nothing to do with people

    3. @timandsue legere, many GOP leaders have voiced support for the vaccine, Trump included. They are also almost entirely vaccinated themselves. But you have that perspective because conservatives believe in individual informed decisions. So we are against censorship so that people are free to seek out information so that they can decide for themselves. We also don’t attempt to swindle the American people into taking the vaccine like Biden did during his Town Hall when he said, “You are not going to get Covid if you have these vaccines,” which is a lie.

  5. This shows how selfish hypocrites quickly change the side, by twisting words to suite their positions.

  6. george orwell: “the contradictions and absurdities i have chronicled above, [are] all finally traceable to a secret belief that one’s political opinions, unlike the weekly budget, will not have to be tested against solid reality.”

    1. @David Wilson
      To begin with, common sense is too low of a standard.
      But it seems conditioned responses can sometimes be overcome.

      I agree that it’s fairly stupid to reject medical science, and science in general.

    2. @Moon Shoes

      I agree. In the age of science and public education, ignorance must be nurtured.

    3. They aren’t patriotic if they can’t risk for their country, as POTUS asking all to be vaccinated against covid19 by July 4th.

    1. @The Genial Decepticon and everyone else was telling them to get vaccinated was ignored. It is entirely their fault

    1. @BK VJ Oh yeah? Remind me again which party was the first to acknowledge the vaccine’s effectiveness? And which one is backing a conman on a big lie again?

    2. the answer is yes,a few weeks ago at a conservative conference,a number of them were actually clapping about the country’s vaccine count…

  7. Stock market drop got the GOP’s attention. You can’t be anti-vaccination, pro-business and pro-investment. People dying isn’t great for GDP.

  8. Let’s think back to a year ago… which party “ignored the virus”? I don’t think it was the Dems

  9. Know what the Republicans realizes that their voters are dying period And even with the gerrymandering there won’t be enough of them alive to vote them back in the office

    1. I’m fine with that. Crap I just got a cramp of conscious through my gut…oh no, sorry, I’m just hungry.

  10. A lot of these GOP senators got Vaccinated months ago while telling their base not too….Talk about hypocrites with no moral ethics….
