Okay, but where is any discussion on the other half of the country that is vaccine-hesitant? There *is* a celebrity athlete who is very outspoken on social issues that could be, you know, encouraging people to get vaccinated but yet. . .

And LeBron James is not even being asked about his silence on vaccines when, for example, promoting a children’s movie:
LeBron James was on @JimmyKimmelLive this week to promote his new movie. The COVID vaccine didn’t come up.
Back in May, he refused to say whether he was vaccinated. Maybe he should be asked now? Wouldn’t that help vaccine hesitancy? https://t.co/ANIq50YLLe

James could really do some good:
One of the worst racial discrepancies in COVID vaccination rate between white and Black residents is New York.

As for Darcy, he was quick to point out when James dunked on Fox News host Laura Ingraham. Maybe he can encourage James to dunk on the vaccine hesitant?
