Fox News pundit Geraldo Rivera knows just how to cheer up the 74-year-old man baby in the White House after his election loss to the man he calls the worst candidate for president in history—name the COVID vaccine after him so he can feel better about himself.
Appearing on Fox & Friends on Friday Rivera said: “With the world so divided and everybody telling him he’s got to give up and it’s time to leave and time to transition and all the rest of it, why not name the vaccine ‘The Trump?’ Make it like, ‘Have you gotten your Trump yet?’ It would be a nice gesture to him, and, years from now, it would become just a kind of generic name.”
People are already worried about political influence over the vaccine development process. Naming a coronavirus vaccine ‘The Trump’ will do nothing to assuage those fears. It would result in fewer people taking the vaccine, which is the exact opposite of what we need to get this virus under control.
