Democrats are panicked that a coronavirus vaccine will emerge right in time for the election, boosting President Trump’s chances.

They and their liberal media enablers are scrambling to undermine that prospect by sowing fear and distrust about a vaccine – any vaccine – even before one becomes available.

How heinous is that?

A recent (typical) Washington Post headline reads: “Trump fixates on the promise of a vaccine — real or not — as key to reelection bid.” The article reviews how engaged the president is in monitoring vaccine development and how the process could be politicized, given the approaching election.

Yes, it is being politicized…by Democrats.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., in a recent interview with MSNBC, said we don’t want a vaccine “one day sooner than it is ready,” hinting that the rush for a cure might create risks.

She also claimed, without evidence, that the administration had “politically interfered” with the process of creating a vaccine by saying “it should go faster.”

In fact, FDA officials and others have gone out of their way to proclaim and guarantee their independence from the White House.

Democratic vice presidential nominee Sen. Kamala Harris in a recent CNN interview said she would not take a vaccine unless it had been vetted by medical experts, saying she would not “take [President Trump’s] word for it” that the medication was safe.

Good news, Senator Harris: President Trump is not going to give you the shot. Your doctor will do that.

The New York Times has been helpfully stoking concerns for months, publishing articles like: “Mistrust of a Coronavirus Vaccine Could Imperil Widespread Immunity,” which argues that “the rapid timetable and President Trump’s cheerleading are creating a whole new group of vaccine-hesitant patients.”

Such is the misinformation campaign being waged by anti-Trumpers that the leading developers of a vaccine — Pfizer, Moderna, Johnson & Johnson, GlaxoSmithKline and Sanofi – have announced they will soon issue a public statement pledging they will not release a vaccine unless it is safe.

That’s reassuring, because we actually thought major international pharma companies would be happy to poison millions of Americans just to please President Trump. As Joe Biden might say: “C’mon, man.”

The effort to shake confidence in a vaccine began months ago, when President Trump ramped up Operation Warp Speed, which, according to the HHS website, “aims to deliver 300 million doses of a safe, effective vaccine for COVID-19 by January 2021, as part of a broader strategy to accelerate the development, manufacturing, and distribution of COVID-19 vaccines, therapeutics, and diagnostics…”
