On Tuesday, President Biden and White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki both spoke of a “door-to-door” approach to convince Americans to get vaccinated in response to COVID-19, prompting an outburst of harsh criticism from social media.
Biden stated at his update on the COVID-19 response and vaccination effort, “In today’s briefing we discussed how our administration is going to devote the remainder of the summer to a special focus on five ways to make gains and getting those of you who are unvaccinated vaccinated. Because here’s the deal. We are continuing to wind down the mass vaccination sites that did so much in the spring to rapidly vaccinate those eager to get their first shot and their second shot for that matter if they needed a second. Now we need to go to community by community, neighborhood by neighborhood, and oftentimes door to door, literally knocking on doors to get help to the remaining people, protected from the virus.”
Biden’s plan, which White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki announced earlier during a press briefing, drew a lot of backlash on Twitter.
Rep. Dan Crenshaw fired, “How about don’t knock on my door. You’re not my parents. You’re the government. Make the vaccine available, and let people be free to choose. Why is that concept so hard for the left?”
Country star John Rich had a different plan: “FYI: To any of Biden’s missionaries who feel moved to knock on my door to push me to get the jab, I’ll kindly invite you in, tell you about Jesus and make you listen to Ronald Reagan speeches until dinner. If you’re still here, we’ll have a slow, full reading of the Constitution.”
Actor James Woods: “Will you be wearing armbands?”
Radio host Steve Deace: “Why do we need a ‘vaccine passport’ system if they’re able to go door-to-door to the unvaccinated? Doesn’t that mean they already know? Oh, and come to my door and I’ve got two words for you: Jehovah’s Witnesses.”
The Libertarian Party of Kentucky: “Insert reference to a historical event where something like this previously happened.”
Washington Free Beacon Executive Editor Brent Scher: “Yup, door to door government agents def will calm the nerves of vaccine skeptics.”
Former Acting Deputy Secretary of the Department of Homeland Security Ken Cuccinelli: “Ummm… wait a minute… the federal government is keeping track of who is vaccinated and who is not (or will be via asking door to door)? I thought this was happening through healthcare facilities… you know, that keep medical history private? Very high creepy rating…”
