An immunologist who voted for President Biden in the 2020 election said he regretted the decision following the president’s “draconian” mandate on the COVID-19 vaccine, arguing on “Fox & Friends” Tuesday that this decision opens the door to “mass discrimination” against millions of Americans. Dr Hooman Noorchashm wrote on Twitter that he considered himself a “Republican McCain” but criticized Biden’s speech last week as “destroyer and divider”.
PENTAGON ORDERS COVID-19 VACCINATIONS FOR SERVICE MEMBERS
DR. HOOMAN NOORCHASHM: As a friend of John McCain, I felt that President Biden had a chance to unite the country, to act on science, to bring the temperature down, if you will. And on Thursday I finally came to the recognition as an immunologist, based on the rigidity of this mandate and the huge error in it, that this does not happen. I have to say that the mandate as it stands has essentially opened the door to discrimination against approximately 80 to 100 million Americans who are naturally immune. I mean, these people are basically discriminated against. The President of the United States has pointed the finger at them and opened the door to a massive level of discrimination.
If a particular subset of these people want to avoid vaccination right now, that they would be forced at the risk of losing their jobs or their educational opportunities, I think that’s completely draconian. It defeats medical necessity. And frankly, I think it’s a constitutional violation.
