New York Times “reporter” and CNN analyst Maggie Haberman falsely claimed that former President Donald Trump refused to encourage Americans to get vaccinated against COVID-19.

“Notable. The former president, who wants credit for the vaccines developed during his presidency, has declined to take such a step,” Haberman, who has a track record of lying about the Republican, tweeted on Thursday morning.

Despite Haberman’s evidenceless and blatantly false claim, Trump has long supported the push for vaccinating Americans and has repeatedly encouraged people to get their jab. In March, Haberman’s employer, the New York Times, ran a story headlined, “On vaccines, Trump tells his hesitant supporters, ‘I would recommend it.’”

Just one month before that, other corporate media outlets noted that Trump encouraged his audience at the Conservative Political Action Conference to get inoculated as soon as the vaccine became available to them.

Trump also spent months promoting his Operation Warp Speed and his task force for ensuring that the creation and distribution of the COVID-19 vaccine was quicker than many in the corrupt media and on the left side of the political aisle originally believed. While many of them called the mission “preposterous,” “impossible,” and even issued premature “fact-checks” on Trump’s vaccine optimism, the first round of the Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine was administered in the United States in mid-December to health care workers in New York.

“I hope everyone remembers when they’re getting the COVID-19 (often referred to as the China Virus) Vaccine, that if I wasn’t President, you wouldn’t be getting that beautiful ‘shot’ for 5 years, at best, and probably wouldn’t be getting it at all. I hope everyone remembers!” Trump said in a statement in March.

Trump’s role in the fastest vaccine development, however, was overlooked by Democrats’ cronies in the press, who repeatedly downplayed
