Fox News’ Tulsi Gabbard says the Biden administration’s opposition to lifting the military’s COVID-19 vaccine mandate is “absolutely insane” as the branches continue to face recruiting challenges. Gabbard joined “Fox & Friends” on Tuesday to discuss why the mandate should be repealed and how it is “based on lies.”
McCARTHY AND THE MILITARY VACCINE MANDATE WILL NOT END OR SUPERSEDE THE NATIONAL PROTECTION ACT.
TULSI GABBARD: This makes absolutely no sense, and it frankly points to a failure of leadership both within the DOD and on the part of politicians in Washington, including President Biden. How can they say they have a hiring problem without looking in the mirror and admitting, hey, maybe it started with me as head of DOD?? I personally know, Brian, who have been discharged from the military, some have served 10 years, 20 years, 25 years, all because of this. a mandate that has no meaning, Frankly, it’s based on the lie that Fauci and others continue to promote because they have everything, which is that vaccines will prevent you from getting COVID, and that will prevent you from spreading COVID. Right now it’s a question of whether or not to remove the DOD mandate, and for Secretary Austin to oppose it is simply insane.
