Max Boot must be getting jealous of the number of times his Washington Post colleague Jennifer Rubin gets retweeted by White House Chief of Staff Ron Klain. This tweet is certain to get retweeted; after all, it calls President Joe Biden’s imposition of vaccine mandates “bold and gutsy” and ties them to a fall in new cases between Sept. 9 and Oct. 18.
Boot also says the widely predicted resistance didn’t materialize, which suggests he should read his own paper.
Biden’s imposition of vaccine mandates was a bold and gutsy move that is now paying off despite GOP sabotage.
Between Sept. 9 and Oct. 18, daily vaccinations increased 26% while new cases fell 43%. The widely predicted resistance didn’t materialize. https://t.co/9QotjstW04

Also, this whole tweet is scientifically idiotic. https://t.co/wC3gYmk49X

Those two numbers are not causally correlated in the way that is being suggested. https://t.co/by2ECp9zRQ

Who wants to tell him that cases were already trending downward before the mandate

has nothing to do with it.. ask Florida.

Someone needs to re-read Florida case load. Lowest it’s ever been.

Except that cases are falling in the red states with "GOP sabotage."

This tweet isnt going to age well. There was a dip last year in October…then a huge spike November thru January.

Forgetting about the fascist state overreach which would’ve greatly offended you if Trump did it, cases have not gone down due to vaccinations.
They went down mostly due to seasonality, which you’ll see in winter, when you will surely come up with some new rationalization.
— John Ziegler (@Zigmanfreud) October 19, 2021
Ha Ha Ha! You are such a fool to think there is correlation. 95% of those vaxxed since September 9th would not even be considered fully vaxxed yet. The reality is SEASONALITY! I predict the Northeast cases will now begin to rise, how will you explain that away?
— Miguel (@AshForkStudios) October 19, 2021
This tweet is misleading. Even the article says that case reductions can't all be attributed to the mandate.

"bold and gutsy" have really lost their ways recently.

I guess "bold and gutsy" is how we're saying "tyrannical" now. Cool.

So you approve of threatening people to get things done?

You're kidding, right? Cops are quitting all over the country. Other sectors too, but especially cops. Health care workers and school boards are getting constant threats over it.

Sure, it's always great (and bold and gutsy) to take away a person's livelihood because they want medical freedom.
PS: There are lots of data showing that highly vaccinated states/countries are experiencing surges in cases. But I guess that wouldn't fit your narrative.

Resistance didn't materialize? Head in the sand much? Southwest Airlines all but shut down, school walkouts in Cali, airlines backtracking big time. If you are going to pay zero attention to what is around you, maybe best not to tweet.

He did take on Corn Pop that one time. That was pretty gutsy.
