Ex-Fox News anchor Bill O’Reilly claims he had to console Donald Trump after a crowd attending their ‘History Tour’ event booed the former President upon revealing he received the COVID booster shot.
Trump appeared with O’Reilly on the final leg of the tour in Dallas, Texas on Sunday.
“Both the president and I are vaxxed,” O’Reilly opened up during a discussion segment with the audience. “Did you get the booster?”
“Yes,” Trump replied.
Members of the audience began yelling at that moment, prompting Trump, whose administration helped in the manufacturing of the three COVID vaccines through Operation Warp Speed, to scold those voicing their opinion.
“Don’t, don’t, don’t, don’t … no, no, no,” Trump responded, pointing a finger and waving his hand at the crowd, dismissing the hecklers as “a very tiny group.”
“You’re playing right into their hands when you’re sort of like ‘oh the vaccine,’” he insisted.
O’Reilly, in an interview with Dan Abrams on NewsNation, claimed Trump was so dismayed by the crowd’s reaction that he called to discuss it after the show.
“I said ‘This is good for you, this is good that people see another side of you, not a political side, you told the truth, you believe in the vax, your administration did it, and you should take credit for it,’” the former Fox star relayed.
“Because it did save, I don’t know, hundreds of thousands of lives.”
Former Fox News anchor Bill O’Reilly will join “Dan Abrams Live” tonight to discuss the boos and reaction that he and former President Trump received when the pair announced on Sunday they each had received the COVID-19 vaccine and booster.
Still, the interaction between Trump and the crowd is a peculiar development. It is a clear indication that running on the vaccine may not be a good bet if he does decide to enter the 2024 presidential race.
Voters are tired of having vaccine mandates thrust upon them, calls for three shots, then four shots, and warnings of a “winter of death.”
“From a public health standpoint, I’m very pleased that he did say that and come out publicly and say that he has been vaccinated and boosted,” Fauci said.
I have never seen so many deplorables respond so negatively to Trump as I have seen both publicly and privately over the last 48 hours. Between his comments about not firing Fauci and the vaccines, he has angered a portion of loyal base.
