Wingers After Stock Market Dive: Hey, Maybe Vaccines Aren't So Bad!

Seems like prominent Republicans are singing a slightly different tune these days.

Why are they so suddenly worried about vaccines? It could mean so many things: That they really don't care about Trump anymore. That they're worried when the stock market tanks over the latest covid numbers.
