The news is out: [Joni Ernst, a senator from Iowa who had spread conspiracy theories about doctors inflating coronavirus death numbers, faced a strong backlash online after she posted a photo of herself receiving the Covid-19 jab on Sunday.
The 50-year-old Republican shared the image that showed her wearing a mask as a doctor injected her with her first dose of the Covid-19 vaccine. She wrote: “Today, at the recommendation of the Office of the Attending Physician, I received the first dose of the #Covid19 vaccine.”
In subsequent tweets, she said: “I encourage all Iowans and Americans to do the same when their time comes. Thanks to #OperationWarpSpeed and the tireless work of Americans across the country, we are one step closer to defeating this virus.”
“It’s also important that we continue to wear a mask, social distance, and follow CDC guidelines to protect our families, friends, and neighbors,” Ms Ernst wrote.]
Anyone who cannot see politicians for what they are is an idiot.
