[Hopefully, all reading this note will excuse my adaptation of a well-known fable.]
“Look, we did something that was historic, we saved tens of millions of lives worldwide when we, together, all of us, we got a vaccine done. This was going to ravage the country far beyond what it is right now, take credit for it… it’s great, what we’ve done is historic. … [I am both vaccinated and boosted.]”
- Former President Donald Trump, December 20, 2021
So, the man died and arrived at the Pearly Gates. The Lord looked out, saw him, and said, “What are you doing here?”
“I died, Lord,” he replied.
“What did you die from?”
“I died from the Coronavirus, Lord.”
“How did that happen? Did you get vaccinated? Did you get boosted?”
“No, Lord! It was my freedom! It was my faith!”
“So … First, I sent you Dr. Fauci, an eminent doctor, who told you vaccinations were safe. Then, I sent you Pope Francis, who told you that getting vaccinated was an ‘Act of Love.’ Finally, I even sent you … Donald Trump, who told you that vaccinations protected America.
What are you doing here?”
