    Huh, for something that was supposed to be such an epidemic, shouldn't the POTUS have been one of the first vaccinated?

    Unless.....it was completely overblown by the White House.

    For a well-educated, supposedly brilliant man, this president has shown incredibly poor judgment in this matter.

    He has the most important job in the world (arguably next to David Axelrod), yet he decides to wait several months to vaccinate himself against a potentially life-threatening disease, only to score political points as a humanitarian who "waited until the children and the elderly were taken care of first".

    It's not humanitarianism, it's stupidity and a lack of respect for his own elected position. Pathetic.
