Huckabee: I Got the Vaccine and It Didn’t Make Me Less Conservative or Make Me Smarter
‘Some people get a root canal, other people just pull their tooth’
HUCKABEE: "But the fact is I’ve had pneumonia in the past, I have compromised lungs. For me it was a very calculated decision that I thought was right for me, smart for me. But if somebody decides not to take the vaccine, they are no threat to me because I’ve had the vaccine. So my point is, I encourage people to take it if it’s something that you feel like would help you and protect you. For heaven's sake, do it. But it doesn’t make me less a conservative nor does it make me more compassionate, nor does it make me smarter just because I’ve made a medical decision. Some people get a root canal, other people just pull their tooth. I don’t think it’s a matter that one makes another a moral superior in doing something like that."
