Rep. Nancy Mace (R-SC), known for being one of the biggest RINOs in Congress, has come under fire this week after giving two very different interviews about COVID-19 on Sunday, one on Fox and the other on CNN.
While appearing on Fox News on Sunday morning, Mace was asked about the “success” GOP Governor Ron DeSantis has had in Florida regarding COVID-19, and she agreed that he’s doing well.
“One of the things that the CDC has not done and no policy at the federal level has done is taken into account what natural immunity does, and that may be what we’re seeing in Florida today. In some studies that I’ve read, natural immunity gives you 27 times more protection against future COVID than a vaccination,” Mace said, according to Mediaite. “I believe Governor DeSantis is seeing the fruits of that labor today.”
Hours later, however, Mace made wildly different comments about coronavirus and the omicron variant while appearing on CNN.
“I have been a proponent of vaccinations and wearing masks when we need to,” Mace said in this interview, taking a strikingly different tone. “We had the Delta variant raging in South Carolina, I wrote an Op-Ed to my community, and I work with our state department of health, I have run ads encouraging my district to go and get vaccinated.”
Mace then discussed the long-term ramifications of testing positive for COVID-19, which is also how one gets “natural immunity.”
“COVID-19 is very serious business. I’m a long-hauler,” she explained. “This is a disease and illness we should take seriously. I want to encourage the American people to talk to their doctors and talk about getting vaccinated. I was recently diagnosed, with asthma and I had COVID-19 a year and a half ago. I’m still feeling the repercussions a year and a half later.”
Check out a mash-up of the two interviews below.
The Hill reported that Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) slammed Mace as “trash” on Tuesday morning for attacking Rep. Lauren Boebert (R-CO) for a joke Boebert made about Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN). Greene said that Mace “is the trash in the GOP Conference. Never attacked by Democrats or RINO’s (same thing) because she is not conservative. She’s pro-abort.”
Greene added that Mace “can back up off of” Boebert or “just go hang with your real gal pals, the Jihad Squad.”
“You’re out of your league,” Greene continued.

Red Voice Media would like to make a point of clarification on why we do not refer to any shot related to COVID-19 as a "vaccine." According to the CDC, the definition of a vaccine necessitates that said vaccine have a lasting effect of at least one year in preventing the contraction of the virus or disease it's intended to fight. Because all of the COVID-19 shots thus far available have barely offered six months of protection, and even then not absolute, Red Voice Media has made the decision hereafter to no longer refer to the Pfizer, Moderna, or Johnson & Johnson substances as vaccinations.
