Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Friday, July 22, 2022

Former White House COVID response coordinator Dr. Deborah Birx said she "knew" that COVID-19 vaccines "were not going to protect against infection" Friday on "Your World." DR. BIRX: I knew these vaccines were not going to protect against infection. And I think we overplayed the vaccines, and it made people then worry that it's not going to protect against severe disease and hospitalization. It will. But let's be very clear: 50% of the people who died from the Omicron surge were older, vaccinated. So that's why I'm saying even if you're vaccinated and boosted, if you're unvaccinated right now, the key is testing and Paxlovid. It's effective. It's a great antiviral. And really, that is what's going to save your lives right now if you're over 70, which if you look at the hospitalizations, hospitalizations are rising steadily with new admissions, particularly in those over 70.

This is as intellectually dishonest as it gets.

Dumbass poster pretends there's no difference between "protects you from getting Covid" and "protects you from death after getting Covid".

Stupid, stupid, stupid.

"Why are you calling me stupid for posting something she said?"

Because you left out the salient part.

Are you too stupid to know you left out the salient part?

Full quote at Faux News cite, emphasis on the last bit Gracie left out:

DR. BIRX: I knew these vaccines were not going to protect against infection. And I think we overplayed the vaccines, and it made people then worry that it's not going to protect against severe disease and hospitalization. It will. But let's be very clear: 50% of the people who died from the Omicron surge were older, vaccinated. So that's why I'm saying even if you're vaccinated and boosted, if you're unvaccinated right now, the key is testing and Paxlovid. It's effective. It's a great antiviral. And really, that is what's going to save your lives right now if you're over 70, which if you look at the hospitalizations, hospitalizations are rising steadily with new admissions, particularly in those over 70. And so if you live in the South--I know people keep talking about the fall--I'm worried about the South.

Or are you too stupid to know the difference between "won't protect you from infection" and "won't protect you" ... ?

The question is: do you want to get sick and stay home or go to an overcrowded hospital and have a machine breathe for you? This is the vaccine yes or no.

I knew these vaccines were not going to protect against infection.

This useless idiot is trying to rehabilitate her image. Fat chance.

She's wrong about this, though. Like she was wrong about everything else her idiot mouth spoke about.

The vaccines did significantly reduce the chance of transmission during infection with Wuhan-1 and alpha strains. Delta and subsequent variants mitigated that benefit as part of their genetic drift and evolution.

FFS have you see the infection rates among those with and without vaccines?

How about the fatalities?

The vaccines aren't perfect but they beat the crap out of not having one.

wtf is the point of this article grace?

She's mad Fat Donnie Fail has (finally) been revealed as a lying sack of crap, and by extension, Ron DeathSentence.

It sounds like she's encouraging people not to get vaccinated, not wear masks, not distance, and not complain when entire families die.

Not remotely pro-life behavior.

Because you are? Repeating lies and misinformation of morons makes you stupid. Very very stupid. And dangerous.

"Dr" Birx is obviously a moron.
