When Joe Biden assumed the presidency, a switch flipped among Democrats. Former President Donald Trump’s COVID-19 vaccine distribution plan Operation Warp Speed was viewed with a skeptical lens, but those on the left felt more comfortable trusting a government run by one of their own. Now liberals ridicule Republicans for displaying the same dynamic.

Consider Kamala Harris, who said after being elected vice president that everyone “should get this vaccine.” But in September 2020, Harris pushed back in a CNN interview, explicitly linking her skepticism of the vaccine to her distrust of Trump.

“I will say that I would not trust Donald Trump,” she said to a question about accepting a COVID vaccine, “and it would have to be a credible source of information that talks about the efficacy and the reliability of whatever he’s talking about. I will not take his [Trump’s] word for it.”

Then, at an October debate with then-Vice President Mike Pence, Harris said, “If Donald Trump tells us that we should take it, I’m not taking it,” to which Pence responded later, “Your continuous undermining of confidence in a vaccine is just, it’s just unacceptable.”

Biden echoed this sentiment in fall 2020 as well, stating, “I trust vaccines, I trust scientists, but I don’t trust Donald Trump. And at this moment the American people can’t, either.”

New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo, whose polling numbers have deteriorated after his gross mishandling of the pandemic, also joined the Democrat hesitancy chorus. But with a Democrat in the White House, his state implemented vaccine passports.

“Frankly, I’m not going to trust the federal government’s opinion and I wouldn’t recommend to New Yorkers based on the federal government’s opinion,” he said in September 2020. In October, he said, “I don’t believe the American people are that confident. I think it’s going to be a very skeptical American public about taking the vaccine, and they should be.”

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said in September 2020, “Unless there is confidence that the vaccine has gone through the clinical trials, and then is approved by the independent scientific advisory committee, as established
