Trump calls politicians who hide booster status ‘gutless’ in interview

WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. (WPEC) – Former President Donald Trump had a harsh word for politicians who won’t say whether they got their COVID-19 vaccine booster shots.

The outspoken businessman-turned-media personality called them “gutless.”

Trump was asked what he thought about the vaccine during an interview by the conservative news network One America News.

His answer:

”I watched a couple of politicians be interviewed and one of the questions was, ‘Did you get the booster?’ because they had the vaccine … They’re answering like, in other words, the answer is ‘yes,’ but they don’t want to say it, because they’re gutless.”

Axios first reported this story and the news outlet brought up the name of one — and only one — politician, Ron DeSantis, leading to speculation Trump was specifically referring to Florida’s governor.

It says that last week, DeSantis’ staff told Politico (in an article titled “DeSantis’ COVID-19 mystery”) they weren’t sure whether the governor had received a third vaccine shot. The reason they gave was that it’s a “private medical” decision.

Trump got his booster shot.

He made that revelation on Dec. 19, 2021, during a live interview show in Dallas with former Fox News host Bill O’Reilly — and his admission drew boos from the crowd.

Trump told OAN, “The vaccine saved tens of millions of people throughout the world. I’ve had absolutely no side effects. Other people have had it. Nothing special.”

President Joe Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris have made public that they received booster shots.

Republican Senate leader Mitch McConnell got his booster shot the same day as Biden in September.

The Supreme Court is refusing to say whether the nine justices have received COVID-19 vaccination booster shots.
