US Rep. Byron Donalds Defends Science on CNN



With all available data pointing to natural immunity from COVID being, at worst, just as good as vaccine immunity, the topic never seems to come up in the mainstream discussion. All of the experts and health bureaucracies have avoided the topic like the plague…. or like COVID. Even people who were previously thought to be pro-liberty are pushing the vaccinate – all without questioning the agenda. Earlier this week, Utah Senator Mike Lee published a video on Twitter sharing his non-sensical take on why he got the jab.

“As we make strides to beat the pandemic, let me share with you why I chose to get the COVID vaccine. I caught COVID back in October of 2020, and that’s an experience I hope not to repeat. I didn’t want to get COVID again. And so, after the miraculous development of the vaccines and after consulting with my doctor, I decided that it would be the best choice for me to get the vaccine.”

Mike does not even address the existence of his natural immunity in his statement. It is likely that many of his constituents have serious questions about this omission. It is almost certain that the Senator’s video will convince absolutely no one to take the jab. 

In contrast with Senator Lee’s statement, US Rep. Byron Donalds of Florida went on Chris Cuomo’s show to calmly explain why he and his family elected not to get the COVID vaccine. Cuomo attempted to spin Donalds’ decision into being all about defying Joe Biden. Donalds rebutted that assertion, and then explained his true reasoning behind his medical decision.

“A reporter asked me on a news show, and I said it has nothing to do with what Biden wants. I chose not to get vaccinated because I chose not to get vaccinated. I already had COVID-19 once. I’m 42 years old, I’m in very good health, I actually get checkups regularly and do all those things. That’s a personal decision for myself. Members of my family, my wife, my three kids, they’ve all had COVID. They’re all healthy. That is a decision they’ve chosen to make.”

The exchange continued between them, with Cuomo becoming visibly frustrated by Donalds’ calm demeanor and obvious comfort level with his decision. Throughout the entire interview Cuomo failed to address the subject of natural immunity at all and instead pretended as if it did not exist. Just like Mike Lee, all of Cuomo’s theatrics will convince absolutely no one to take the shot.

The free people of America should hope for more real men like Byron Donalds to appear. If not, then the media, the government, and the health bureaucracy will continue to take hostages like Mike Lee or attack straw men like microchips and magnets. The American people have legitimate questions that deserve answers, not hostage videos or COVID fear propaganda.

  1. Natural immunity is much better than the experimental and dangerous vaccine. Covid won’t kill the healthy. And variants are always weaker than the original virus. That’s real science; not agenda driven.

    1. “Variants are always weaker than the original virus. That’s real science” Hmmm.. How many times have I read that the Delta VARIANT (my emphasis) is more contagious than the original? I have to wonder how many people we would have lost trying for natural immunity, especially with hospitals getting overwhelmed (remember that?) the way they were.

  2. Dems dont want to hear Facts just lies & such a waste of time by Donald.
    Love idea BUT waste of time overall BUT did make CNN look bad again.

  3. I had Covid. Later I decided to get the vaccine. I am 71 years old and just don’t want to take a chance. A friend of mine who I caught Covid from, died from his experience with Covid. He was 72 years old. My wife is 66 years old. She also got vaccinated. Her reason was that she caught Covid. Months later she caught it for a second time. So finally she decided to get the vaccine. In her case, evidently there was no immunity in her system as she has caught Covid twice. What is to prevent her from getting it a third time? So she got the vaccine also. Everyone must make their own choice. When I was in the hospital with Covid the doctor asked me if I had been vaccinated. I said no. He asked me why. I told him I’ve read pros and cons about the vaccine so I was not sure. He told me “I work with Covid cases all the time in this hospital, I have dealt with hundreds of cases, if I was not vaccinated I would be dead by now.”Everyone must make their own choice.

  5. QUIT CALLING IT A VACCINE!!! It isn’t a vaccine . . . . . it’s an mRNA.

    DNA stands for “deoxyribonucleic acid.” DNA is a large, complex molecule (shaped like a double helix rotating ladder) that carries and passes the genetic code that makes up all living organisms. DNA has the instructions.

    RNA stands for “ribonucleic acid.” RNA is a large molecule made from a single strand of DNA, and one of its main roles is to transfer the instructions needed to make proteins. RNA transfers the instructions.

    mRNA stands for “messenger ribonucleic acid”. mRNA has the blueprints to tell the ribosome which amino acids to get and how they should be arranged. This protein is then sent out into the body to supposedly ONLY attack the COVID virus.

    Does anyone understand? This mRNA is literally interacting with your DNA. I know that mRNA-type approaches are being used to attack certain types of cancer. This makes sense since cancer is not a virus but rather created within the body of the carrier. So, to use the weapons of the body to kill off the attacker makes sense.

    Personally, my family and I stand with Rep Donalds and for all the same reasons.

  6. I keep hearing that doctors are filing deaths records for their patients who have died shortly after receiving the mRNA shots for COVID and the reports are disappearing. In other words, the actual number of people who have died shortly after getting the Fauci shot are not being reported.

  7. Byron Donald’s rationale seems to be in the column of common sense and science. The left will not discuss science that they claim they follow. I,e., makes don’t stop viruses
    Like a cyclone fense stopping a BB. Also, John’s Hopkins recently reported. Those of us that had C-19, had better immunity then those getting shots. Hell-o Mike Lee.
