Vaccine hesitancy morphs into hostility as conservatives attack White House message


COOPER NEILL, New York Times

Rep. Madison Cawthorn (R-N.C.) speaks at the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) in Dallas on Friday, July 9, 2021.

On July 4th, President Joe Biden celebrated dramatic progress in the war on the coronavirus, with more than 150 million adults fully vaccinated and infections plunging 93% since Inauguration Day. "Together, we're beating the virus," Biden said at a party on the White House lawn.

But at the recent Conservative Political Action Conference, attendees celebrated a different - essentially opposite - milestone: that Biden had missed his goal of vaccinating 70% of adults.

"Clearly they were hoping - the government was hoping - that they could sort of sucker 90% of the population into getting vaccinated," activist Alex Berenson told the crowd Saturday, seeming to inflate Biden's target. "And it isn't happening."
