During a vaccine-cheerleading CNN panel discussion that reacted to President Biden’s speech about the COVID-19 Omicron variant on Tuesday, the former U.S. surgeon general claimed that the Biden team has rejected overtures from Trump administration officials to help address jab hesitancy.

In a portion of the conversation that also praised Biden’s lamentation of vaccine misinformation, Dr. Jerome Adams revealed that unnamed members of the current administration have rebuffed Republicans who have offered to pitch in.

CNN anchor Ana Cabrera teed it up by accusing the Trump administration, without evidence, of encouraging a “conservative narrative” of a distrust of science and “lies.”

“Well, That’s a great question,” Dr. Adams responded, “and one of the things we need to do is find other people out there who can be representatives, who can be purveyors of positive information. I’ll just be honest with you: I’ve told the White House, many people from the last administration have said to the White House, we want to help you, and we’ve been told ‘we don’t want your help.’

“So they want to try to reach conservatives by only putting out their voices,” he added, while also indicating that he didn’t want to name names.

“I don’t want to get into that, but I will tell you, they don’t want to work with people who are on the other side of the aisle. That is a problem. That is something that they could be doing more of, is reaching out to more conservatives, to get positive messages out there. They could also be putting out more [public service announcements].

“So you saw me, Birx, Fauci, Redfield, on TV, on the internet, all the time when we were in the thick of the COVID pandemic. There’s more they could be doing to put out positive messages combatting that misinformation, and we’re all still wondering, where are all these PSAs that we could and should be seeing, talking about how vaccines don’t cause infertility, talking about how vaccines actually help mothers have a safe and healthy pregnancy. Talking about how you should still get vaccinated even if you’ve had COVID before. There’s more we could be doing to actually combat that misinformation in a productive way, instead of just pointing fingers,” he added.

It’s no particular secret that the far-left activists seem to be the prime decision-makers in the Biden administration. Or as Dr. Oz, the GOP Senate candidate in Pennsylvania, has said repeatedly, when you mix medicine and politics, you get politics.

The COVID vaccine was, of course, developed pursuant to President Trump’s Operation Warp Speed.

In his speech on Tuesday, Biden insisted, among other things, that it is a “patriotic duty” to get vaccinated.

All this is unfolding as many high-profile, triple-jabbed individuals, including Members of Congress and professional athletes, are testing positive for the virus.

During his roadshow with Bill O’Reilly during which he touted the life-saving success of the COVID vaccine,” former President Trump revealed that he got the booster shot, which prompted a “very tiny group” in the audience to boo.

In seemingly dismissing injection hesitancy from the crowd, he said “take credit for [the vaccine]…you’re playing right into their hands when you’re sort of like ‘oh the vaccine,” without defining who they are.

The booster shot “may be one of the few things [Trump] and I agree on,” Biden noted in his prepared remarks on Tuesday.

Like many GOP elected officials, or former officials in this case, Trump is pro-vaccine (and pro-therapeutics), but anti-mandate.
