Kayleigh McEnany says Joe Biden is the most important contributor to vaccination hesitation
With COVID cases raging across red states and GOP governors doing nothing to help, Fox News personalities look for scapegoats. Despite the fact that Fox viewers are less likely to be vaccinated, Fox claims they aren’t the problem.
Some anchors have tried to attribute the COVID surge to migrants with no evidence whatsoever. And during an appearance on Monday, Kayleigh McEnany alleged Joe Biden and his team were responsible for Republicans’ refusal to be vaccinated.
“Yes, the biggest contributor to vaccine delay is the Joe Biden administration,” said the former Trump press secretary. “This talk of mandates, Dr. Fauci can be seen wearing masks all over the map – first it’s one, then it’s two, then when you’re vaccinated, it’s zero, and now we’re back to one. This is helping to make people distrust the federal government, the CDC, wherever you had it [CDC Director Dr. Rochelle] Walensky comes to Bret Baier and says yes, we are considering a vaccine mandate, only to withdraw it a few moments later. “
McEnany continued, “If you have this new recommendation on indoor masking in high intensity areas and you don’t publish the underlying data for that proposal, it will instead leak from the deep state in the CDC to the Washington Post and then days later come out and confirm this data. That message is all over the map. You have to be clear, you used the word harris, you used the keyword consistently. “
