Alabama’s Republican Gov. Kay Ivey drew fire on Friday after saying it was “time to start blaming the unvaccinated folks” for a spike in her state’s COVID-19 cases, with critics charging she has failed to show leadership in tackling the pandemic.
Asked Thursday what it would take to lift Alabama’s low vaccination rate, Ivey snapped to a reporter: “I don’t know, you tell me!”
“Folks are supposed to have common sense,” Ivey continued. “But it’s time to start blaming the unvaccinated folks, not the regular folks. It’s the unvaccinated folks that are letting us down.”
