Three Democrats on the Hill have tested positive for the coronavirus, despite all being fully vaccinated and “boosted.”
Sens. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) and Cory Booker (D-NJ), and Congressman Jason Crow (D-CO), all said they are having “mild” bouts of the disease, the Washington Examiner reports.
Maryland Gov. Larry Hogan, a moderate Republican who has been praised by Democrats for imposing strict COVID-19 measures, has also tested positive despite getting three shots, according to the Daily Mail.
Booster shots not preventing all infections
While skeptics of the vaccine have said the news raises more questions about the shot’s efficacy, Democrats appear to be responding by doubling down on their COVID-19 theater and the party’s newfound support of major pharmaceutical companies.
One Democrat blamed maskless Republicans — not the vaccine’s failure to prevent infection — for the so-called “breakthrough” cases, while Warren, Booker, and Crow issued virtually identical statements saying they were thankful that their symptoms aren’t worse.
“Thankfully, I am only experiencing mild symptoms [and] am grateful for the protection provided against serious illness that comes from being vaccinated [and] boosted,” Warren said, according to the Examiner.
“As cases increase across the country, I urge everyone who has not already done so to get the vaccine and the booster as soon as possible — together, we can save lives,” she added.
Dems double down
The booster market promises billions in profits for companies like Pfizer, which have benefited from the Biden administration’s policy of threatening unvaccinated Americans with the loss of their livelihoods.
About 70% of American adults are “fully vaccinated,” while roughly 30% are “boosted,” according to numbers from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). Democrats have been pushing booster shots more aggressively while acknowledging that “fully vaccinated” is fast becoming an obsolete term, as heavily vaccinated states in the northeast see record surges in cases.
There were 11,000 so-called “breakthrough” cases in Warren’s Massachusetts last week, accounting for roughly a third of all cases in that window, a shocking turnabout that belies the Biden administration’s misleading promises that the vaccine would prevent infection.
Biden will give a dark speech Tuesday issuing a “stark warning” to the unvaccinated days after his administration predicted a “winter of severe illness and death.”
