“Making sure our troops are ready to defend this country and prepared to do so, that remains the president’s priority and the vaccine requirement for Covid does just that,” White House National Security Council spokesman John Kirby contended.
“But Republicans in Congress have obviously decided that they’d rather fight against the health and well-being of those troops, rather than protecting them.”
“What we think happened here is Republicans in Congress have decided that they’d rather fight against the health and well-being of our troops than protecting them,” press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre said. “And we believe that it is a mistake, what we saw happen on the NDAA as it relates to the vaccine mandate. Making sure our troops are prepared and ready for service is a priority for President Biden. The vaccination requirement for COVID does just that.”
Less than 100 military personnel have died of COVID. And that was at the height of the pandemic.
Over 500 servicemembers died of suicide in 2021.
13 members of the military were killed due to Biden’s treasonous actions in Afghanistan.
As part of its hostility and contempt for the military, Biden, Defense Secretary Austin and other leftist apparatchiks imposed a wholly unnecessary and illegal vaccine mandate that forced our men and women in uniform to leave and helped lead to a recruiting crisis in order to purge conservatives.
Now this same corrupt gang of traitors is talking as if they care about the lives of the troops.
Current military readiness rates remain terrible, but the Biden administration doesn’t care about military readiness. All it cares about is remaking the military through a series of political tests.
