A recent poll showed that half of Trump's supporters have indicated they aren't going to get the vaccine against the coronavirus.
The reason why is both pathetic and sad.
Trumplicans tend to ignore reality in favor of Trump's alternate universe. Even when their lives are at stake.
Thanks to our former president, getting a vaccine has become a political statement.
In a twist of irony, Trump got the shot in private. He didn't want his loyal minions to see that he was a hypocrite and supercharging a pandemic for political gain.
In other words, Trump is throwing his minions under the bus. There's no other way to describe what he's doing.
In a time when healthcare officials are cautiously advising people that the pandemic has slowed down - less cases and deaths - but to not let their guard down and to continue safety measures, Trump's vaccine stance stands in the way of defeating the virus.
The worst part of what Trump has done is indoctrinating his cult followers against science and facts.
