Pity there is not a vaccination for stupid, although I suspect in Graham's case he would still remain stupid QUIT LYING ABOUT IT THEN. how could he know though what symptoms ? smells like paid ad.. So what. Zero covid is a farce. He has the vaccine. He will be fine. Not news. What are his symptoms with the vaccine . Those of us who got the shot would like to know. I hope the senator feels better soon . Does she quarantine still 14 days

It seems like it's the vaxxed getting ill. Some of my friends got sick for days right after and thought they were going to die. I've been mask/vaxless and not ill in years and been all over Chicago this whole time and there is no pandemic here. Just stop. Wait two weeks, and he'll be obsequious and playing golf with the virus.

News that bring us faith back up.🙌 Sadly, the vaccination does little to stem the need to suck up to those who lost elections or fail to do what is right for SC or the country. But hey, he’s vaccinated.
