It has been said that when you mix medicine and politics—you get politics. Following this saw, as an independent, I rarely comment about presidential politics on air. However, John Fredericks, who took his MAGA Bus Tour to the Virgin Islands for Trump’s recent primary victory, asked me about the former president’s dilemma of claiming credit for Operation Warp Speed which delivered unsafe and ineffective vaccines.
It seems as if the entire nation knows the vaccines cause serious side effects including death and sadly, they do not stop COVID-19, transmission, hospitalization and death. How do you think Trump should handle this issue? I gave my answer and Fredericks followed on with commentary as a loyal Trump supporter.
