Former President Donald Trump bungled his response to the COVID-19 pandemic when he was in office. Still, we certainly can’t take issue with Trump pushing back on vaccine misinformation from his supporters, especially an anti-vaxxer like conservative media personality Candace Owens. He’s a bit late, but we’ll take it.
On the “Daily Wire” podcast, Owens seemed to think that the former President would go along with what she was suggesting about the vaccine. Her take is that since people are dying from the coronavirus, the vaccines don’t work. Leave it to Owens to make Trump out to be the reasonable guy. Oh, and he’s smarter, too.

“Look, the results of the vaccine are very good, and if you do get it, it’s a very minor form,” Trump added. “People aren’t dying when they take the vaccine.”
Candace Owens’ vaccine misinformation is so ridiculous that even Donald Trump pushed back:

Did you notice how Owens quickly changed the subject? I’m not sure how Candace doesn’t know that the majority of Americans that are dying from COVID are unvaccinated people. This isn’t hard. Even Trump is starting to get it.
