CINCINNATI, Ohio (AP) — President Joe Biden expressed pointed frustration Wednesday over the slowing COVID-19 vaccination rate in the U.S. and pleaded that it’s “gigantically important” for Americans to step up and get inoculated against the virus as it surges once again.

Biden, speaking at a televised town hall in Cincinnati, said the public health crisis has turned largely into a plight of the unvaccinated as the spread of the delta variant has led to a surge in infections around the country.

“We have a pandemic for those who haven’t gotten the vaccination — it’s that basic, that simple,” he said on the CNN town hall.

The president also expressed optimism that children under 12 will be approved for vaccination in the coming months. But he displayed exasperation that so many eligible Americans are still reluctant to get a shot.

1. Uh, excuse me

I believe you mean bigly. Gigantically's not a beautiful word. I should know. I have all the beautiful words.

2. JRB has a giant soul. He loves all of mankind, even the part here who are being told

to hate him, TFG cultists. Yet that doesn't stop his humanity. I couldn't do it, but he does. He is a man of the people, a born leader!
