Fox News host Bill Hemmer whined on Monday that he walked out of a New York City restaurant a few weeks back because they asked to see both his COVID vaccine card and a photo ID.
During a report on New York’s new vaccine rules for all restaurants, Hemmer told co-host Dana Perino:
What Hemmer didn’t mention is that the restaurant was merely doing what the law requires. He probably thinks that because he’s on television, everyone should know who he is and be glad to have him in their business. But is letting him in worth being shut down completely if the restaurant doesn’t comply?
The vast majority of us carry a photo ID with us at all times. If we’re driving, we’d damn well better have our driver’s license. And it also pays to either carry your vaccine card or a photo of it on your cell phone if you’re afraid of losing the card.
Hemmer and Fox News are partially to blame for resistance to the vaccine that’s seen among many of their most devoted viewers. But as President Biden pointed out just last week, even Fox News has a mandate that employees be vaccinated.
The only question that remains for Bill Hemmer to answer is this one: You want some cheese with that whine?
