Mother Jones Washington bureau chief David Corn said on Friday on MSNBC’s “The Beat” that the unvaccinated COVID-19 deaths were optional deaths.
Corn said: “We are not all the way there, but it is a huge achievement with the economy and everyone else, not just Joe Biden, that we have come a long way. The labor market got a tight, good news, people working because some wages are rising and some people are able to quit their jobs to find better jobs.So all in all I think the economic picture is not great but it is much better than it was a year ago. “And you can say the same thing about COVID. We still have a problem with COVID, but far fewer deaths, and the deaths are basically deaths that are almost optional, people who are unvaccinated.”
Melber said, “Wow.”
Corn continued: “If you’ve been vaccinated, you know, you’re much less of a risk today. Schools are pretty much open most places. Businesses are pretty much open, there’s some more restrictions that we do not know what going to happen in the next two months, but by and large we’re in a much better place than a year ago.You know, I have some sympathy for Joe Biden in the White House because I do not think They get a lot of credit, part of a bigger narrative, especially up against Trump’s bizarre cult, Fox and others say we’re basically going over the cliff right now. “
