She used to be Donald Trump’s press secretary but Sarah Sanders is now running for the governor of Arkansas. But that’s not all.
“Sanders on Sunday hailed former President Donald Trump for Operation Warp Speed and gave her own reasons for getting vaccinated against COVID-19 in an effort to reach the conservative holdouts who may remain skeptical,” reported Fox News.
While the Democrats are trying desperately to separate Trump from any credit due for the development and distribution of the vaccine, Sanders is giving her full-throated approval.
“When the Trump administration initiated Operation Warp Speed in May 2020, the president stated that a vaccine would become available by December of that year at the very latest,” said Sanders in a nationally published op-ed. “From the moment he made his announcement, the ‘expert’ class tried to undermine those statements with baseless fear-mongering.”
Sanders then placed the blame for undermining the vaccine on Biden and Kamala Harris:
But no one did more to undercut public confidence in the vaccine than Joe Biden and Kamala Harris. Biden doubted that the vaccine would be ‘real,’ while Harris said in a nationally-televised debate that she would not take any vaccine the Trump administration had a hand in creating. If President Biden, Vice President Harris, and others on the left truly care about increasing the vaccination rate and saving lives, they should admit they were wrong to cast doubt on Operation Warp Speed and give President Trump and his team the credit they are due for the development of a safe and effective vaccine in record time.
