Gov. Polis staged a lame photo op with workers from a meatpacking plant Friday as they finally received their COVID-19 vaccinations.
The JBS meat plant in Greeley was hit hard by COVID-19 where hundreds of employees tested positive & 6 workers died. Now, I’m thankful that we have secured the vaccines to start vaccinating thousands of workers at the plant. I stopped by today as workers received their first dose pic.twitter.com/DD738W6Mz4

The essential food workers got their shots four weeks after Polis and the media had their turn.
No word as to whether Polis actually apologized to any of them for telling Coloradans last week they should abandon meat, claiming it to be unhealthy.
The workers didn’t seem to hold it against Polis, and were willing to have their hands pumped with sanitizer immediately after they stepped off the bus before approaching the governor to shake hands and pose for photos.

As a token of their appreciation, they gave the governor a big old chuck of beef, presumably for him to take home to his partner and fiancee, animal activist Marlon Reis.
