During the daily White House briefing on Wednesday, press propagandist Karine Jean-Pierre criticized House Republicans for working to rescind the coronavirus vaccine mandate for the military.
“We believe that it is a mistake,” she told reporters.
House Democrats conceded to Republicans on Tuesday, allowing language rescinding the coronavirus vaccine mandate into National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA). “Not later than 30 days after the date of the enactment of this Act, the Secretary of Defense shall rescind the mandate that members of the Armed Forces be vaccinated against COVID-19,” the bill reads.
Biden’s decision to mandate coronavirus vaccines for the military resulted in more than 8,000 troops getting kicked out of the military.
“Republicans in Congress have decided that they’d rather fight against the health and well-being of our troops than protecting them,” Jean-Pierre claimed falsely, smearing Biden’s political opponents.
Jean-Pierre then defended the vaccine mandate as “making sure our troops are prepared and ready for service. Vaccinations work and save the lives of our service members,” she said.
On the contrary, everyone knows that not only do the vaccinations not work, they very often cause or exacerbate other medical conditions including death. Everyone also knows that the purpose of the mandate was to weed out the servicemembers who are non-compliant, which suggests that they are likely conservatives and thus ideologically undesirable.
