(SN) Unvaccinated Americans were the talking point of the week with a slew of figures slamming those who have chosen not to take the coronavirus jabs, assigning blame to them for America ‘going backwards’, likening them to murderers, and suggesting that they are to blame for more deadly variants of the virus emerging.
First up, the White House with Press Secretary Jen Psaki claiming that America is in reverse because “there are still a large population of people in this country who are unvaccinated – and we have the most transmissible variant that we’ve seen since the beginning of the pandemic that more people are getting sick with Covid.”

Finally, on the other side of the country, California governor Gavin Newsom likened unvaccinated Americans to murderous drunk drivers:
Newsom’s comments come after he announced that California will require proof of vaccination or weekly testing for all state workers and health care employees.
GOP Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene hit back at Newsom, resulting in the following spat:
The message is clear, ‘we’re all in this together’… except for the unvaccinated.
