Sports Jonathan Chait thinks Washington, DC restaurants are going to come out ahead with their vaccine passports

Sports

As Twitchy reported last week, Washington, D.C. Mayor Muriel Bowser reminded citizens that they need three things “before heading out”: a mask, a photo ID, and proof of vaccination. We’d been assured that photo ID was racist and shouldn’t be required to vote, but if you want to eat at a restaurant in D.C., you need one. Some people responded that people would just drive to Virginia and eat out there.

A reporter asked Bowser about her thoughts on people abandoning D.C. restaurants for Virginia, and it got Jonathan Chait thinking.

It hadn’t hit me until now that this is an aspect of choosing between DC and Arlington, but now that I think about it, it makes DC a vastly preferable option for indoor dining. https://t.co/6StjM00pWp

If unvaccinated diners choose to eat in Virginia over DC, and vaccinated diners pick the reverse, that’s going to net out heavily in DC’s favor.

Tell me you don’t understand suburban Virginians without telling me you don’t understand suburban Virginians.

Suburban Virginians don’t go out of their way to go to dinner in DC unless they’re already in DC for the day. https://t.co/i6nvGYF8OG

Does New York magazine think that you’re stupid, or do they hire stupid people?

Vaccinated individuals can still catch and spread COVID. https://t.co/bP7ifZjs60

Why would you care if someone unvaccinated is there if you’re already vaccinated? https://t.co/J35FPS7XOS

If you think the vaccines work at preventing spread, you wouldn’t care if someone three tables down were unvaxxed. If you don’t think the vaccines work at preventing spread, a vaccine passport would mean nothing to you.

Ooof. Someone hasn’t been keeping up with the data.

Vaccinated people can STILL catch and spread COVID. Stop the craziness, and just admit you’re wrong, period.

If you are vaccinated and have an issue with someone who is unvaccinated sitting next to you then you have some serious mental issues.

If you’re vaccinated why do you care?

If the vaccine doesn’t protect you from unvaccinated then it’s not much of a vaccine.

Thank you for highlighting the lack of efficacy of the vaccines, Jonathan!

Why would a vaxed person travel to DC to be harassed over documents, unless they’re in desperate need of validation.

If VA is allowing people to eat without a vaccine passport and DC is demanding one to eat, who do you really think is going to come out ahead? https://t.co/7ZdHd3psR3

People in the DC bubble are so pitiful. Those of us living in the real world haven’t thought about masks, vax status, or social distancing in months.

Let go of your fear. Live.

Does Chait really think people from Virginia are going to drive to D.C. for dinner because the restaurants require a vaccine passport, and D.C.’s going to come out ahead? If you’re that concerned about catching COVID you’d eat at home or have food delivered.
