Biden misled the public by claiming that those who had been vaccinated would not contract COVID-19. It was a significant blunder for which he has never shown regret. Given this blunder, it's easy to see someone who was already apprehensive about taking the vaccination losing even more trust today.
We previously reported on President Biden's "interview" with WHIO, an Ohio television news station, in which he proceeded to lie his head off about how the so-called "Build Back Better" measure will not "cost a single solitary dime" (which the CBO says is false). When the reporter inquired whether he had any reassurances for parents concerned about supply chain concerns over the Christmas season, he actually smiled and joked that it was going to "cost Santa some money" this year.
However, Biden made one particularly troubling remark while discussing his dictatorial coronavirus vaccination orders and the several lawsuits brought to overturn them.
“Everybody talks about freedom about not to have a shot or have a test,” he stated. “Well, guess what? How about patriotism? How about you make sure you’re vaccinated, so you do not spread the disease to anyone else.”
For those who missed the remarks, watch below:

It’s just a lie, an outright lie, and people who don’t believe me can check the CDC website if they’re so inclined.
Unfortunately, he's told it before, at least as far back as July, when he declared during a CNN town hall, "You're not going to have COVID if you get vaccinated." "We're making sure healthcare workers get vaccinated because if you seek care at a healthcare institution, you should have the knowledge that the individuals giving that care are protected from COVID and cannot transfer it to you," he said during a lecture in October.
Fox News reporter Peter Doocy asked deputy press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre about Biden's remarks today at the White House press briefing. She was at a loss for words. Instead, she mumbled something about wanting to examine the statements "in context" before reverting to the standard "listen to the science" defense:
Doocy: “In a local interview on Tuesday, he said, “How about making sure you’re vaccinated so you do not spread the disease to anybody else?” The CDC says people who get vaccine breakthrough infections can be contagious.”
Jean-Pierre: “Well, I’ll say this: I — I didn’t hear this interview so I would have to see it in its full context. What I know and what the President believes is that we have to listen to the science. We have to listen to our public health officials. And that’s what the President believes.”

The problem is that when Biden says things like this, he consistently ignores "the science," and I'm starting to believe that this isn't an infamous Biden "flub," but rather a deliberate attempt to mislead people and lull them into a false sense of security by falsely claiming that you can't catch or spread the virus if you get the vaccine.
As I've previously stated, I believe that individuals should not allow what politicians say overly affect their medical decisions, yet many do. There are no doubt people who have heard Biden's remarks or read about them later in the press and concluded that if they get the vaccination, they would be immune to the virus, and that if they visit a doctor or hospital, a vaccinated healthcare worker will not be able to transmit COVID to them.
Biden is shamelessly promoting disinformation about vaccinations, while so-called "fact-checkers" who regularly slam Republicans and conservative news sites like this one for daring to say something unpleasant are evidently too preoccupied with the Capitol riot to notice.
I'm sick and tired of individuals attempting to control what others say and their personal health decisions by dictating to them. I'm sick of it.
