2. I've thought of that, too. And I blame Trump.

Though it's likely that there aren't as many as there used to be, those who took his advice and drank bleach.

4. Trump told them that the virus would just "go away" over a year ago

One would think that they'd have caught on by now!

At least here in New York they have no choice. There's a sign on every business, grocery, pharmacy, gas station and bank, that no one is allowed inside without a mask. I'm grateful for that and the fact that we have a governor who refused to listen to Trump and his insanity.

5. They are uneducable

Fueled by hatred of others: women, Blacks, Asians, Hispanics...

I am glad NY has a firm handle on protective measures!

Gov Cuomo has done great work! I will never forget how, while dump tried to kill us all, Cuomo gave daily briefings that kept us sane!

That is leadership!

6. In Mary Trump's book, she said that Trump hates Cuomo

Because he became the national leader on the virus. He gave regular information sessions on what was going on and I have never been so grateful that I live in New York (despite the snow!). Yet despite all the information available here, there are still a few stubborn anti vaxxers and I really don't understand. I know an older gentleman - mid 80s - who said he's not getting vaccinated because his daughter's a nurse and she's not getting the vaccine and he gets his medical advice from her. I truly don't get it!

9. It's A Race

Dr. Walensky is right to be worried. Too many young people and Trumpsters in general are acting like the game is over. Itís over for those of us vaccinated but there is not a critical mass of us yet.

We are so close but the dumb and dumber are not helping.
