Remember during the pandemic, when everyone was calling emergency workers and first responders heroes?
That’s apparently over now.
During Joe Biden’s CNN town hall event this week, he was asked if these workers should be fired if they don’t get vaccinated and he said yes.
Breitbart News reports:
Biden: Police, Emergency Responders Should Be Fired if They Won’t Get Vaccinated
During a town hall on CNN on Thursday, President Joe Biden said police officers and emergency responders should be let go if they refuse their employers ‘ mandates to get vaccinated against COVID.
Anchor Anderson Cooper said, “Mr. President, let me ask you a follow-up about that. As many as one in three emergency responders in some cities like Chicago, Los Angeles, right here in Baltimore, are refusing to comply with city vaccine mandates. I’m wondering where you stand on that. Should police officers, emergency responders be mandated to get vaccines? And if not, should they be stay at home or let go?”
Biden said, “Yes and yes. By the way, by the way, I waited until July to talk about mandating because I tried everything else possible. The mandates are working. All this stuff about people leaving and people getting it, you have everyone from United Airlines to Spirit, all these airlines all 96, 97% of the people have gotten the vaccine. All the talk about all these folks who are going to leave the military if they’re mandated. Not true. You got about a 90 some percent vaccination rate.”

Biden just said first responders should be FIRED for refusing the vaccine. Wow.

Did you notice the audience applauding Biden’s answer?
It’s kind of surprising, but remember this was an ‘invitation only’ audience, meaning they were going to applaud his answer no matter what he said.
