On Thursday, MSNBC host and Massachusetts resident Rachel Maddow took to Twitter to rebuke Gov. Charlie Baker’s rebuke of local teacher union officials’ requests regarding vaccine distribution in the state.
In a quote-tweet of a Boston Globe article, Maddow wrote, “The Massachusetts vaccine rollout has been terrible from the beginning — and remains so. But now it’s getting *pugnaciously* terrible. So that’s something, I guess.”
It appears Maddow is not alone in her opinion. On Friday, Rep. Katherine Clark, who represents Massachusetts’ 5th congressional district, agreed with her, tweeting, “Exactly, Rachel. If 3 months into our vaccine rollout, #MA’s most vulnerable residents are still not vaccinated, don’t blame teachers. Blame the rollout. #mapoli.”
The ongoing situation between the state’s teachers unions and the Baker administration remains a contentious one. Just this week, k-12 teachers and other school employees became eligible to sign up for COVID-19 vaccine appointments.
