If you are the kind of person who would choose to not get a vaccine to protect against a virus that has killed more than 4.6 million people around the world, because you heard that Nicki Minaj’s cousin’s friend in Trinidad had his testicles swell up, there’s really not much that can be done to save you. Your ability to discern a trustworthy source of information is fatally flawed. You should not get your health advice from hip-hop stars who have no idea who you are, just as you should not take your personal-hygiene tips from Steve Jobs, you should not get your tax advice from Wesley Snipes, you should not take marital advice from O. J. Simpson, and you should not ask Armie Hammer to cater your next party. Nicki Minaj may have the best of intentions, but she is not a doctor and no, wearing a nurse’s outfit in a music video does not count.

Jim Treacher adds: “Well, who you gonna trust: some doctor, or the unfortunate friend of Nicki Minaj’s Trinidadian cousin? I don’t know what else the White House is supposed to do here, but it definitively busts the Democrats’ myth that vaccine hesitancy is the fault of Donald Trump, or his voters, or white supremacy, or whichever boogeyman the libs come up with next. People are hesitant about vaccines for a lot of reasons, not always good reasons, but it’s not necessarily political.”
