During an appearance on Vicki McKenna’s radio show on Friday, “Our Dumb Senator” Ron Johnson questioned the need for the COVID-19 vaccine for all adults.
Sen. Ron Johnson, R-Wisc., downplayed the need for the Covid-19 vaccine for all adults during an interview Friday with a conservative radio host, facing immediate criticism for suggesting people don’t need to be inoculated.
“Because it’s not a fully approved vaccine, I think we probably should have limited the distribution to it to the really vulnerable,” he told host Vicki McKenna. “What is the point? If the science tells us the vaccines are 95 percent effective. So, if you have a vaccine, quite honestly, what do you care if your neighbor has one or not?”
He added, “What is it to you? You have got a vaccine, and science is telling you it’s very, very effective. So, why is this big push to make sure everybody gets a vaccine?”
Of course, Sen. Johnson does not have an advanced medical degree, nor is he a public health expert, so his opinion is 100% horseshit, but I’d expect nothing less than horseshit from Our Dumb Senator.
