Brian Williams mocks Geraldo Rivera’s suggestion to name COVID-19 vaccine after Trump


Brian Williams of MSNBC on Friday scoffed at Fox News personality Geraldo Rivera’s suggestion that the COVID-19 vaccine should be named after President Trump to honor him.”It’s possible that we just don’t give the President enough credit for his FDR-like dedication to tackling this virus,” Williams said sarcastically on his show, “The 11th Hour,” Friday night.

“His laser focus, his daily dedication, the sympathy he forever expresses to the families of the quarter million dead,” Williams continued. “Even the way the president is lecturing us in this way to please wear a mask and stop the spread. And he always advocated injections. Maybe Geraldo is on to something.

Williams continued his monologue, mocking the success of Trump’s various self-promotion activities, saying, “What Trump Steaks has done for the hungry, what Trump Water has done for the thirsty in our country, what Trump University has done to uplift the uneducated in our country. country – well, come Trump the vaccine. The possibilities, I think you will agree, are endless. This is our show for this Friday night. ”

The comments come after Trump took credit for Pfizer’s announcement that its COVID-19 vaccine trial was successful. Rivera praised the president’s efforts, referring to Trump as “the main architect of Operation Warp Speed,” the federal government’s program to develop and distribute a vaccine in record time.

“I had an idea… with the world so divided and everyone was like, ‘He has to give up’ and ‘It’s time to go’… why not call the vaccine ‘Trump?’ Rivera said on air. Friday. “You know, do like ‘Do you already have your Trump? “”
