Nationally syndicated radio host Todd Starnes reacted Friday to President Biden’s message to get “vaxxed or masked.”
The “Todd Starnes Radio Show” host told listeners he checked the Constitution and didn’t see anything giving the Democratic president that kind of authority.
“I don’t know what Joe Biden’s been putting in the cottage cheese…I don’t know what he’s smoking. I don’t care. But he doesn’t have the constitutional authority to tell any of us that we should get vaccinated or that we should wear face masks, “Starnes said.
The author of “Culture Jihad: How to Stop the Left from Killing a Nation” questioned how the Biden administration plans to enforce the new order.
“Are they going to demand our medical records? That flies in the face and HIPAA. Personally, I have decided that I am going to self-identify as a vaxxer,” he said.
“So if somebody asked me if I got the vaccine, I’m going to say, ‘absolutely,'” Starnes concluded. “Because that’s how I identify…that’s my truth.”
And the callers agreed.
Dan in Baltimore, Maryland, said he’s going to do the same thing.
“That’s what I’m going to do,” Dan said. “If they ask me, I’m going to say, ‘Oh, I got the shot,’ but I won’t get the shot because I don’t think I should.”
Starnes added: “That’s between you and the Almighty…if you feel comfortable getting the vaccine, go for it. Knock yourself out! But it’s none of my business whether you had the vaccine or not.”
