https://www.newsweek.com/pathetic-geraldo-rivera-mocked-tv-anchors-suggesting-trump-name-covid-vaccine-1549270

Quote
Fox News personality Geraldo Rivera's suggestion that the COVID-19 vaccine should be named 'The Trump' to honor President Donald Trump was met with immediate backlash from television anchors and on social media.

Rivera congratulated Trump on Friday after the president wrongly claimed full credit for Pfizer's announcement earlier this month of the more than 90% efficacy of its coronavirus vaccine. "As a result of Operation Warp Speed, Pfizer announced on Monday that its China virus vaccine was more than 90% effective," Trump said on November 14. "Pfizer said it wasn't part of Warp Speed, but that turned out to be an unfortunate misrepresentation."

Rivera called Trump the "prime architect of Operation Warp Speed" before offering an idea on Friday's Fox & Friends: Let's name the vaccine after the president.



"With the world so divided and everyone telling me, 'He's gotta give up' and 'Time to leave' ... why not name the vaccine 'the Trump?'" he said. "You know, make it like, 'Have you got your Trump yet?'"

Alternative ideas:

- Vaccines from an Italian Restaurant
- The Birth of a Vaccination
- Vaccidentally in Love
- Vax Man of New Orleans
- Holy Roman Emperor Vaximilian I
- Vaccina: Warrior Princess

Name it the Deep State Vaccine so the tin foil hats will reverse-psychology themselves into taking it.

He does understand that there is more than one COVID vaccine, right?

He does understand that - for logistics' sake, if nothing else - the most efficient course of action is the status quo (i.e. the "Pfizer vaccine," the "Moderna vaccine," the "Oxford vaccine," etc.), right?

He also does understand that - in general - vaccines aren't named after their founders/funders, right? We don't call the flu vaccine "the Salk." We don't call the Mumps vaccine "the Hilleman."

Aside from the fact that this is incredibly dumb, are vaccines even ever named after people?
IIRC, it was the Polio Vaccine, not the Saulk Vaccine.

Yeah they don't name vaccines after people, not to mention that there could end up being several vaccines in widespread use. Are they all the Trump vaccine?

Speak for yourself. I always am sure to ask peers if they have received their Hilleman.

Al Capone's vault should be named after Geraldo Rivera.

Somehow, I don't think "the Trump vaccine" will have quite the impact he's thinking. I'm all in favor of Americans getting vaccinated against Trump. (If only guarding against such evil stupidity were so easy.)

How pathetic could Geraldo Rivera be?
Really?
What an absurd suggestion. I swear, some of the crap that comes out of Fox, makes my mind spin.

This is what happens when the Network Fox changes it's whole lineup to benefit Trump family everyone of Trump family with Guilliani have been on Fox shows. Geraldo before Trump was more secular, but now he is full steam Trump

Don Jr certainly got Anthony Kennedy to retire that was bad

Geraldo has always been a clown and one of the worst personalities at Fox.

It's hard to believe that Rivera retained any credibility after Al Capone's vault.

The polio vaccine was called the Salk-Sabin vaccine after the scientists who led its development.

If I were to give it a descriptive name it would be the "Freedom" vaccine.

...If I am to name anything after Trump it would be the "Plague of Donald Trump".

When the Network changed from Fox news to Trump news when his whole family took over the network, that's when Geraldo changed with the network and Sean Hannity is the Don Jr show
