One Twitter user snarkily reminded the veteran journalist, “but you, uh, want people to take it right?”
If you are really interested in conciliation, and sincerely want everyone to work together to make the next administration a success, why not start with this suggestion: call the first vaccine to market, the Trump. #TrumpVaccine https://t.co/Omqvcj9xwA

To soften the blow of defeat Fox's Geraldo proposes naming the vaccine after Trump. "It would be a nice gesture to him and years from now it would become kind of a generic name. Have you got your trump yet, I got my trump, I'm fine. I wished we could honor him in that way." pic.twitter.com/fM8qwFhxF6

Good luck with that mustachioed man.

If Trump had had his way, the Muslim immigrants who developed the Pfizer vaccine would have been deported in 2017.

More fitting to name the virus after him. “More than a quarter of a million Americans died of the Trump-19 virus before we were able to get rid of him”

.@GeraldoRivera says we should name vaccine "The Trump" to make him feel better about leaving office. They're close friends. So he knows that Trump is enough of a baby that this would make him feel better. I was led to believe that facts don't care about your feelings. #Snowflake

Geraldo Rivera suggests naming a COVID-19 vaccine "The Trump." Which is weird because the vaccine is something people actually WANT inside them. With consent. pic.twitter.com/ZXZEmSPjmF

I think Geraldo Rivera is right, in America we have to name the vaccine after Trump.
It will be the Trump-Virus Vaccine.
We couldn't have gotten here without him. He made it happen.
