Democrats are finally ready to admit that the COVID-19 vaccine was a big failure.
There’s a catch though…
They’re not taking any of the blame.
Instead, they have shifted blame squarely upon (You guessed it) President Donald Trump…
Yes, the same democrats who took all the credit for the vaccine, and then forced millions to take it by threatening their very livelihood, are now calling it Trump’s vaccine…
Tucker Carlson brought attention to this new democrat strategy.

Tucker penned this for Fox News:
Well, they finally got Big Orange. You were starting to think it could never happen. How could it happen? Once you accused a man of racism, fascism, sexism, embezzlement, perjury, sex crimes, mental illness, treason (The last of which, by the way, is a death penalty offense, let us remind you) and then you impeach him twice on related grounds and after that, you send the FBI to his home to seize a handwritten welcome letter from Barack Obama, which turns out to be a state secret possession of which is a serious felony.
After you do all of that and they have, you wouldn’t think there’d be a lot left to accuse the guy of. You’d think they’d have run out of sins, but no, it turns out there’s one left and it’s the big one.
The crime of all crimes, an offense so diabolical, so morally repugnant, so contrary to the laws of God and nature that once revealed to the public, Donald Trump is done forever. He will never again darken the door of American democracy. He will slink back in shame to his lair off the fifth tee to prepare for his well-deserved punishment. We won’t see him again until sentencing. That’s how bad this is. What, ladies and gentlemen, did Donald Trump do? We can now tell you. Donald Trump created the COVID vaccine. He did that himself and on purpose, with malice aforethought.
The vaccine is Donald Trump’s doing. We learned that this week from Democrats in Congress. They announced that shocking news. An investigation by the Coronavirus Subcommittee found, as Politico put it, that the Trump administration pressured the Food and Drug Administration to authorize the first COVID-19 vaccines on an accelerated timeline. Following this?
An accelerated timeline. They didn’t even fully test the stuff. That’s not science. Donald Trump doesn’t do science. So, they just handed this stuff out to people, citizens, recklessly. In the words of South Carolina Congressman James Clyburn, Donald Trump “assaulted” our nation’s public health institutions with this poison, the so-called vaccine, and in doing so “undermined our nation’s coronavirus response.” That’s what Trump did and here’s the worst part. No one knew Trump was doing it.
To Tucker’s point..
On Wednesday, House democrats released a report blaming President Donald Trump for pushing the COVID-19 vaccine on an “accelerated timeline.”
The Trump administration pressured the FDA to authorize unproven treatments for Covid-19 and the first Covid-19 vaccines on an accelerated timeline, according to a House report released Wednesday.https://t.co/aJlYeu4oY0

Politico has more on that report, which came from a group of democrats on the House Select Subcommittee on the Coronavirus Crisis:
The Trump administration pressured the Food and Drug Administration, including former FDA Commissioner Stephen Hahn, to authorize unproven treatments for Covid-19 and the first Covid-19 vaccines on an accelerated timeline, according to a report released Wednesday by Democrats on the House Select Subcommittee on the Coronavirus Crisis.
Senior Trump administration officials fought for the reauthorization of hydroxychloroquine, a drug normally used to treat malaria and lupus, after the FDA revoked its emergency clearance of the drug because data showed it was ineffective against Covid-19 and could lead to potentially dangerous side effects, the report found. The Democrats’ investigation also documents potential influence from former White House officials regarding the FDA’s decision to authorize convalescent plasma, and White House attempts to block the FDA from collecting additional safety data on Covid-19 vaccines in order to get them to the public before the 2020 presidential election.
“The Select Subcommittee’s findings that Trump White House officials deliberately and repeatedly sought to bend FDA’s scientific work on coronavirus treatments and vaccines to the White House’s political will are yet another example of how the prior Administration prioritized politics over public health,” House Majority Whip Jim Clyburn (D-S.C.), who also chairs the subcommittee, said in a statement.
They then blame Trump for putting pressure on the FDA:
The Trump administration also tried to pressure the FDA to authorize the first Covid-19 vaccines ahead of the presidential election. When Hahn testified to the subcommittee in January 2022, he said that White House officials said they would not sign off on emergency use authorization language that required a 60-day safety follow up for late-stage clinical trials. Ultimately, the FDA went ahead with the 60-day follow-up plan without an explicit blessing from the White House, though the White House later cleared it.
Once again, democrats have shifted the goal posts…
The Democrats are now blaming Trump for their failed vaccine.
You all took it, you fools.
Enjoy the consequences.

• Implemented mandates
• Forced the vaccine on govt employees
• Outlawed travel without masks (which harm health)
• Forbade anyone from talking about the side effects or alternatives
• Forced countless businesses to close

So now, the Democrats, who told you the vaccine was the way to end the pandemic and literally wanted to cancel you if you didn’t get vaccinated, are blaming it all on Trump.

Astounding how Democrats took all the credit for the vaccine, the masks, the closing of schools and businesses.
And now that the truth is not able to be hidden anymore it is Trump's fault.

First BIG Democrats like Joe and Kamala said they wouldn’t trust the vaccine if TRUMP had anything to do with it.
Then they FORCED everyone in America to take it.
Now they’re blaming him for how it turned out.
When does this circus of absurdity end?

Trump always said the vaccine was an option. Biden tried to force it and mandate it or lose your livelihood. Biden is a liar and the Democrats are the actual Fascists. The Democrat Party is the party of Projection and “wrap ups”. All they do is lie.
