NY Gov. Makes Bizarre Claim to Explain Vaccine Hesitancy

'I heard so many people say they’re afraid to go get vaccines because they’d have to get on the subway and they’re afraid of being assaulted...'

(Molly Bruns, Headline USA) New York’s Democrat Gov. Kathy Hochul made some strange claims Wednesday about why New Yorkers were hesitant to get vaccinated.

“I heard so many people say they’re afraid to go get vaccines because they’d have to get on the subway and they’re afraid of being assaulted,” Hochul said.

Hochul has made a few eyebrow raising comments since taking over in August for disgraced Gov. Andrew Cuomo.

Like Cuomo—whose COVID policies killed thousands of vulnerable nursing-home residents—Hochul’s attitude toward the pandemic has been particularly concerning.

She has referred to the vaccine as a “gift from God,” dubbed those who are vaccinated as “the smart ones” and appealed to God Himself to encourage vaccination:

“You know there’s people out there who aren’t listening to God and what God wants,” she said at the Christian Cultural Center in Brooklyn. “You know who they are.”

She also requested that the audience become her “apostles,” which spurred legal action against her statewide vaccination mandate for healthcare workers.
