Wear a mask. Get a shot. Might need a booster. Grave sacrifices to personal freedom? Really??? It’s not as if we’re asking you to storm the beaches at Normandy.

I’ve teared up multiple times this week, not just because I know, as a pediatric intensivist, that we’re at the very beginning of a surge of peds COVID hospitalizations and deaths, but because my colleagues have been attacked and spat on for trying to prevent it.— Dave McSwain (@DMcSwainMD) August 18, 2021
Just when you think the Lying Sociopath can’t cause any more pain, suffering and death, he tells people not to take a booster shot because he says it’s all a ploy to make money. There’s only one thing to say to that: Fuck you, you fucking Criminal.— Rob Reiner (@robreiner) August 19, 2021
