Knights Party Press Release: Dec. 23. 2020

Yesterday, Tuesday, December 22nd, NewsMax ran the following headline, “Growing Number of Lawmakers Refusing COVID-19 Vaccine.”

Lawmakers from both parties are starting to turn down early access to the COVID-19 vaccine, saying they’re refusing to get the first of two shots until all frontline healthcare workers and senior citizens are vaccinated.

“I’m not saying that I have any type of aversion to it. It’s just a personal stance that if you’re a leader, you eat last,” Rep. Brian Mast, R-Fla., told The Hill. “Symbols matter in life. The powerful symbol can be, ‘Hey listen, we’re going to make sure that we take care of the people first.'”

Thomas Robb, the National Director of the Knights Party, based in Harrison Arkansas said, “This is comical, we all know why our lawmakers are waiting. Too see how many are adversely affected. Since when have lawmakers on either side put American citizens first? They’re definitely supposed to, but it’s been many years since they have, so to come out and say such a thing is laughable.”
