More than 100,000 people are hospitalized with covid-19 in the United States, a level not seen since Jan. 30 -- when coronavirus vaccines were not widely available -- as the country grapples with the delta variant's spread.

Look...

Just take anyone who refuses to get a vaccination out of the hospital.

Put them in tent hospitals in the parking lot.

Then give them a team of "specialists" who only get their information from Facebook and Fox News.

Keep the doctors and nurses in the hospitals for people who need them and actually listen to them.

(Just google Cancer patients can't get ICU bed and see the horror stories for just that subgroup)

These are real people saying they won't get a shot because the shots are the Mark of the Beast and Joe Biden, apparently, the anti-Christ.

Other reasons, from (for now) living and breathing Trump supporters not to get COVID shots include: they inject a microchip tracking device and it changes your DNA.

You're right.

1.The average Trump supporter has a head made out of straw-- absolutely no brain.
2. He rarely makes sense.
3. He thinks that somehow Trump did something intelligent when he looks at his broken watch at precisely 12:15 and sees the big and little hand pointing to 12 and 15, respectively, and shouts "It's 12:15!!!!"

I'm trying to follow your lack of logic, how do you know they are Trump supporters? You have examples of someone saying, "I support Trump, and because I support Trump I won't get vaccinated with any of the the vaccines Trump facilitated and recommends? Are they Trump supporters because they won't get vaccinated or they won't get vaccinated because they are Trump supporters? Isn't it Biden's job to lead the country now?

Someone on DR posted this quote from a health care worker and the irony of unvaccinated 'freedom seekers' who turn in desperation to the hospital when they get COVID:

"If you don't trust doctors and science to keep you from getting sick, why the hell are you clogging up hospitals trusting them to cure you?"

the vaccines have been promoted by Trump.

The Trump vaccine consists of injecting yourself with Hydroxychloroquine, drinking a cup of bleach, and shining high powered lights up your rear end.

Welllllll considering that a large percentage of the sick are of righty tighty anti-vaxxers living under the "Stop the Steal" silliness it stands to reason they don't believe Biden has a right to lead them... sooooooooo Biden's edicts mean nothing to them. ergo: GFY.

Thankfully for us all... Biden supporters wayyyyyyyyyy outnumber Trumpti's dumpsters. They are the minority...from the looks of it... currently, a very sick minority that recently lost yet another war... so yer cranky and lashing out at us... whilst you self cull... and take out some innocent bystanders in the process.

It's aggravating to watch. It's really sick that with decent people trying to save your lives and you insist on continued stupid... because you think it's heroic to not take life-saving measures while Biden is president because you don't want him to get the credit.

We will beat this thing... just as we came back from the last cl0wn screw up of 2008. You people are dead weight and this time... if we shed a few of you so much the better. The entire world knows how Trumptidump behaved during this pandemic... you can't dump this on Biden.

What a joke. Like so many on the right, you live in a fantasy world. Trump did nothing but downplay the rampaging virus from Day One. I'll give him credit for mostly staying out of the way during the ramp-up of the vaccines, but rather than take credit and promote the heck out of them as his crowning achievement, he continued to be Trump, bad-mouthing Fauci, the WHO, governors and anyone else who didn't bow down to him and utterly abdicating responsibility for the prompt and equitable distribution of the vaccines to the states.

You're purposely trying to mislead.

Harris gave very specific reasons, including if only Trump, and not the medical profession, was the one touting it. She never said nor intimated she wouldn't take a medically-endorsed vaccine.

Good point, Trump had to walk a fine line. If he promoted the vaccine too much the DNC-Media and the Democrats would use that to create fear uncertainty and doubt to reduce vaccine acceptance. At any rate Biden has completely failed, hasn't even attempted if we're being honest, at getting the vaccine wary to vaccinate. A Soviet style mandate with vaccine passports has been proposed, I can see why that's attractive to authoritarian left. A better approach would be persuasion which Biden can't do with his diminished mental and physical state. Being president means showing up.
