GOP Rep Nancy Mace Makes Conflicting COVID Vaccine Remarks On CNN, Fox News

·2-min read

Congresswoman Nancy Mace (R-S.C.) tried to have it both ways regarding COVID-19 prevention methods ― and it didn’t go so well for her.

On Sunday, Mace appeared on Fox News, where she said the CDC needs to consider the effects of “natural immunity” in those who have recovered from the coronavirus.

Then she noted that she’s seen some studies suggesting that natural immunity may provide 27 times more protection against future COVID infection than a vaccination.

“So we need to take all of the science into account and not selectively choosing what science to follow when we are making policy decisions,” Mace said.

However, Mace sang a different tune when she appeared on CNN a little later.

During that segment, she claimed herself to be “a proponent of vaccinations and wearing masks when we need to.”

Mace also encouraged the American people ― at least those watching CNN ― to consider wearing masks and getting vaccinated, which studies say offers more protection even to those who’ve recovered from COVID-19.

HuffPost reached out to the congresswoman for clarity, but she did not immediately respond.

You can see Mace say one thing to Fox News and another to CNN in this clip.

Many Twitter users were amazed at Mace’s willingness to change her message depending on the outlet.
