All the former presidents and their wives cut an ad encouraging everyone to get the vaccine, except for one. You’ll enjoy watching this, especially seeing the picture of Jimmy Carter in the last shot.

Donald Trump declined being in the ad, but he did issue a statement.

If he hadn’t been president, we probably wouldn’t need it. I can guarantee you one thing – I hope people remember that half a million people didn’t have to die if Trump had handled this competently.

Can you help us out?
