Trump waves off boos after he, Bill O’Reilly reveal they’ve received the COVID booster

By Brigid Kennedy, The Week

Former President Donald Trump was met with boos Sunday after announcing to a mostly unmasked crowd he had, in fact, received a booster dose of the COVID-19 vaccine, Newsweek reports.

Appearing alongside former Fox host Bill O’Reilly at the American Airlines Center in Dallas during the final stop of their “History Tour,” Trump confirmed his booster status and even told those chiding him (and presumably O’Reilly, who also said he is boosted) to essentially knock it off.

The interaction between Trump and the crowd made for an “interesting moment,” notes New York Times reporter Maggie Haberman, considering “some around Trump are now mocking the booster campaign.”
