"I looked at my feet and my feet were black," Forino said, per the outlet. Asked why he didn't get vaccinated, he said "stupidity basically, I didn't believe in it." "It's a choice, a choice that I made poorly,"

The ultimate COVID stump speech

The Republicans needed his legs more than he did.

At least he's self aware enough to acknowledge his poor decision. I hope he is ok.

Donald Trump appreciates your sacrifice sir. Death Santis does too, along with Gov. Abbott.

Seriously though, what a terriible price to pay for believing dishonest politicians who should share some of his pain. Any politician still advising people to not get vaccinated should have to display his picture in every advertisement.

Trumpers and fellow travelers don't care about this guy. They wouldn't raise $5 for his new Greg Abbot Signature wheelchair. I suspect he will now be branded as a socialist for taking help from the government. Given the enactment of SB8 in Texas, this guy may have to crawl from the parking lot to his polling place (on the third floor of a building with no elevator) come election day...

I'm sure the state he attended public school was exclusively his choice.
