First daughter Ivanka Trump accepted a flippant challenge by “The View” host Joy Behar to take the first COVID-19 vaccine that legally hits the market.
The 38-year-old adviser to the president even said she’d come onto Behar’s ABC talk show to do it, though there’s no word of an invite.
President Donald Trump, hoping to win reelection in November, has told supporters a preventive measure for the pandemic that has killed nearly 200,000 Americans this year could be closer than the medical community previously predicted. He’s even hinted there could be one by Election Day, though there’s no known science to make that case.
On Wednesday, Behar went on TV to express skepticism over that prediction and worried the president might rush a vaccine to market that could be dangerous.
“He will push anything to get reelected,” Behar said. “Don’t fall for it. And by the way, I will take the vaccine after Ivanka takes it.”
