Kamala Harris in favor of Republicans getting vaccine after downplaying COVID-19
Hours after President-elect Joe Biden received his first dose of the COVID-19 vaccine, Vice-President-elect Kamala Harris appeared on The ReidOut showing support for Republicans who downplayed COVID. Senators Marco Rubio and Lindsey Graham received a backlash online after posting photos of themselves on Twitter showing they received the vaccine early after mimicking President Trump's rhetoric about the pandemic for months. With many Americans still skeptical of the vaccine, Harris believes that leaders of both parties who receive it might push others to get vaccinated.
When asked by host Joy Reid, Harris replied, “Honestly, Joy, I want everyone to get it. We could talk about where they have been on this matter, but I hope and I believe that anyone in leadership positions right now should urge all Americans, regardless of party affiliation, to encourage it, if it is their time , they should get this vaccine. "Harris added," The reality is, it is literally about saving lives. It is literally about saving lives. "
On a night that Congress passed a bipartisan COVID relief bill, Harris said lawmakers, especially those who have repeatedly downplayed the pandemic but have jumped to the frontline for the vaccine, need to remember that they are still have a duty to ensure this vaccine will be available to all Americans.
"I hope all of the people you speak of understand that it is their responsibility, dare I say, their moral responsibility, to understand that the American people deserve exactly what they got," Harris said . "That means having this vaccine and distributing it so that anyone, no matter where they live, can get it."
The ReidOut is broadcast on weekdays at 7 p.m. on MSNBC.

Chris Christie urges Trump not to let Michael Flynn into the Oval Office
Former New Jersey Governor Chris Christie attended a Sunday edition of The Situation Room With Wolf Blitzer preventing President Trump from holding further meetings with contested former National Security Advisor MIchael Flynn and his lawyer Sidney Powell at the White House . Over the weekend it was reported that Trump put the idea of enforcing martial law and overturning the elections into practice in a meeting on Friday that Flynn and Powell attended. Flynn recently touted martial law as a viable option for Trump, when in reality the election has already been confirmed and the declaration of martial law does not repeal the constitution. Trump refused to bring up the idea of martial law at the meeting, calling the reports "fake news". But Christie advised Trump not to hold meetings with Flynn or Powell to avoid similar reports in the future. “That's why someone like Michael Flynn never belongs anywhere near the White House, much less the Oval Office, and his attorney Sidney Powell. I've been talking about how dangerous I found General Flynn to be since the transition in 2016, "Christie said. “I sat with him in security briefings with then-candidate Donald Trump and then with President Donald Trump, and I will tell you that he is in no position to give advice to anyone. I think the best advice I could give to the President is to keep Michael Flynn and Sidney Powell out of the Oval Office, and then those really bad ideas are going to stay out of the Oval Office too.
