CNN host Jake Tapper does little to hide his disdain for President Trump. However, even he couldn’t refrain from acknowledging the invaluable role of Operation Warp Speed in Pfizer and Moderna’s coronavirus vaccines:
Calling their efforts “an unmitigated success,” Tapper stressed the importance of recognizing everyone’s hard work and that “President Trump was the one who OK’d it.”
CNN’s Chief Medical Correspondent Dr. Sanjay Gupta echoed Tapper’s effusive praise, proclaiming that “the pace of medical innovation has been forever changed.”
Within three months of getting the sequence of Covid-19, researchers had begun giving the vaccine to clinical trial participants — a process that, on average, takes years.
