WASHINGTON — Second Gentleman Douglas Emhoff received a variety of responses after asking a simple question on Tuesday: “What motivated you to get vaccinated?”
The tweet, which got more than 14,000 replies and over 26,000 likes, elicited a wide range of answers, from both everyday users and blue-check ones.
Model and author Chrissy Teigen and poet Maggie Smith simply cited death as their reasons.
“Not wanting to die was a huge factor for me,” Teigen tweeted in response.
What motivated you to get vaccinated?
Smith tweeted “A lifelong aversion to dying,” was her motivation to receive the vaccine.
“Wanting to protect my family/community and getting back out in the field registering young people to vote so we can remove NRA backed politicians from office,” March For Our Lives Founder David Hogg tweeted in response to Emhoff.
not wanting to die was a huge factor for me!
Whilemany responses gave serious answers, some people gave much less serious replies,jokingly referring to disinformation about the vaccine as their reason.
Washington Post video producer Dave Jorgenson and Reuters journalist Byron Kaye both made fun of false claims that COVID-19 is spread by 5G exposure and that Microsoft founder Bill Gates is using the vaccines to implant microchips into people in their responses.
Jorgenson, well-known for his TikToks for The Washington Post, tweeted he got the vaccine for “Free 5G coverage.”
“I’m planning a difficult hike so it’s important the government can use the 5G microchip to track me,” Kaye tweeted Wednesday.
