AOC cut in line for the COVID vaccine

AOC wears two masks to get her Pfizer vaccine and shares moment with her 8.2m Instagram followers - but Twitter users vent at Congress rule that sees 'politicians cutting the line'


The only people that should be getting the vaccine right now are those over 60 or 75 years old. It is immoral that anybody as young this POS gets it until these older citizens have had it. AOC you should resign from Congress in shame

@Dr Sliptinschit,
After breaking down the basics of the vaccine - including a whole post about potential side-effects - Ocasio-Cortez turned her attention to a viewer's question about why politicians were getting it before some healthcare workers.

'I was actually surprised by this too — I was expecting that we were going to get it a lot later,' she said.

'But when it comes to Congress's access, it's due to something known as "continuity of governance" planning.

'Basically, there are national security policies on the books to ensure continuity of governance during national emergencies.'

Sure, she could have refused to get vaccinated. But that would feed into the suspicions of many of her constituents that the vaccine is dangerous. Her being vaccinated is not "immoral", the woman is not a "POS" nor should she "resign from Congress in shame" — that's a total over-reaction. Conservatives can opportunistically jump on this event in their apparent need to damage this woman's political career but it will be forgotten before the next news cycle.
