On Friday, former Democratic presidential candidate Andrew Yang shared an idea he had for Americans to prove they’d been vaccinated for COVID-19.
“Is there a way for someone to easily show that they have been vaccinated,” he asked on Twitter. “Like a bar code they can download to their phone? There ought to be.”
Is there a way for someone to easily show that they have been vaccinated – like a bar code they can download to their phone? There ought to be.

The Twitterverse did not take well to Yang’s insane and undeniably totalitarian proposal.
I like Andrew, have had him on the show, he’s welcome back and would love to shoot hoops with him.
This sort of centralized authoritarian control that Democrats want around every part of your life is why there are so few moderates left.

Thanks for your thought(less) question! Maybe there IS a way to show it! Would a tattoo on your forehead work for you?! How about a number on your forearm or a Yellow star for dissenters?!

This week informed us that Helen Keller was privileged and Abraham Lincoln didn’t do enough for blacks. Santa Claus got the vaccine from Fauci, and by default, Andrew Yang wants him to get a bar code. Welcome to America.

Yet, we can’t require IDs to vote? Interesting. https://t.co/3hnocy8VNf
