Fox News’ Trace Gallagher: ‘I shouldn’t have to wear a mask because you chose not to get vaccinated’

It seems the nation’s talking heads can’t go an hour without engaging in a COVID-19 debate (and Jim Acosta can’t quit Trump.) As such, Fox News’ Trace Gallagher said on “The Big Sunday Show” that he believes in freedom of choice in America, but also you need to get vaccinated.

The four-person panel discussion was fueled by former President Obama’s recent, scaled-back birthday bash held at the Obama estate in Martha’s Vineyard over the weekend. Noting also the anti-mandate protests underway in France, Fox Nation host Abby Hornacek wondered if the U.S. might see the same kind of civil disobedience here, were there to be a federal vaccination order.

The nation’s leading charlatan, Dr. Anthony Fauci, said during a clip shown on the segment that he strongly supports more vaccination mandates, contingent on what is assuredly full FDA approval coming soon. The Fox News anchor responded to the question of resistance to vaccine mandates here in the United States:

(** Language warning)

“Yeah, I mean, it’s possible. People are pushing back on this kind of thing. And by the way, the Obama thing? It was scaled back so much, Abby, that the police officers were calling the traffic situation a [sh**] show, because they couldn’t get control of it,” Gallagher said.

He added that somebody in attendance at the Obama party will invariably come down with the virus, which will prompt the expected claims of hypocrisy which he believes, like all rational people, to be fair criticism.

He went on to contend that rising case numbers are due not to a lack of masking, but rather a population segment that refuses to get vaccinated, though he qualified it by stating that individual choice is still a thing in America.

“Look, I’m a big believer in the vaccine,” Gallagher said. “I think it’s a mistake not to get vaccinated because the bottom line, it could save your life. But you have to remember we’re a free country, and people are free to make their own decisions and free to make their own mistakes.”

Gallagher cited a Reason Magazine article that summed up his position well, namely that Americans who smoke, engage in daredevil pursuits of thrills, or over-eat themselves into obesity are exercising personal choice, and that personal choice should apply to vaccinations as well. If there is a mandate, he argued, there will be significant push-back from the citizenry. The article continued, “In a free society, people have the right to make their own risk assessments, even if others don’t approve, and the rest of us should get to live our lives without limiting ourselves because of the decisions made by others.”

“Should we mandate vaccines? It’s America, we shouldn’t,” Gallagher said. “People are going to push back if we do. And the same thing if you don’t want to get vaccinated, I shouldn’t have to wear a mask because you chose not to get vaccinated.”

It is curious that Gallagher thinks “we” includes him at the top of government, rather than naming the Biden regime, which has routinely shown its penchant for tyranny including scoffing at SCOTUS rulings and this only seven months into its stranglehold on American lives.
