Marco Rubio did his part to show America the COVID vaccine is A-OK … but how’s the Senator from Florida so damn pale?!!
A self-deprecating Rubio said, “I know I looked away from the needle And yes, I know I need a tan But I am so confident that the #Covid19 vaccine is safe & effective that I decided to take it myself.”
Members of Congress are among the first in line for the vaccine, given that they need to stay healthy to run the country, even though as a group they have failed miserably for months in coming up with a relief package for struggling Americans.
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Majority Leader Senator Mitch McConnell have also gotten the vaccine, as did Vice President Pence.
Joe Biden will get the vaccine next week and he will do so on camera. The idea is to show the country the leaders who are advocating vaccinations are walking the walk.
It’s a tall order, given that 40% of the country — possibly more — is either reluctant or unwilling to get inoculated.
