First Lady Jill Biden visited a vaccination site on the campus of Jackson State University in Mississippi’s capital city. She was accompanied by Mayor of Jackson Chokwe Antar Lumumba, his wife Ebony, and 2nd District Congressman Bennie Thompson. Several other local officials and state lawmakers were present as well.
During her visit, she either had a Freudian slip or she was talking about something we didn’t know is going on in our government.
The first lady encouraged everyone in the community to get vaccinated.
Jill Biden stated:
“Now, in a lot of ways, the vaccines feel like a miracle. They were rolled out in record time and work much better than we hoped. But still, and I’m sure a lot of you hear this, there’s a lot of misinformation out there,” she said.
The first lady continued, “The technology behind them really isn’t new at all. You know, scientists have been studying similar viruses and working on this type of vaccine for decades. So, when this pandemic started, they already had a pandemic ready to go. ”
The vide was just a fraction of Ingraham Angle on Fox News but not one mainstream media questioned her statement!
Currently, Mississippi ranks last in the nation for its vaccination rate. Governor Tate Reeves (R-Miss.) announced last week that the state’s COVID-19 State of Emergency will end on August 15, 2021.
He released a statement about the first lady’s visit to Jackson.
Elee and I thank First Lady Jill Biden for visiting and trust that our friends at Jackson State will show her why Mississippi is known as the hospitality state.
We are proud of the fact that Mississippi was one of the very first states in America to offer all Mississippians access to a vaccine. To date, we have administered 1.99 million doses. We only have 90 of our fellow Mississippians hospitalized – down from 1,444 – and are reporting only 67 total new cases today – down 98% from a peak of over 3,000.
The Vaccines are safe and effective and are an important part of our path beyond Covid and we welcome the First Lady of the United States, or anyone else, to help spread that message and encourage more vaccinations.
