Right here on Wtmj, so stay tuned. Right here on 6:20 A.m.. And for the For the first hour, we had been talking about former South Carolina governor and former U S. Ambassador United Nations Nikki Haley, who had done a Interview with political And she talked about The fact that former President Trump she felt that he had no future in politics that he had no future in the GOP. And so we spent the first hour talking about that, and I'm gonna move on to the next story. But I am going to read a text that said, we were talking about a the viability of a and the possibility of a third party. And it's extra, said Ross Perot took enough from George Sr to swing the election. That's very true. And it was probably because of Ross Perot. Well, a big reason. Uh, No as to why what Bill Clinton ended up winning and 1992. So very good point. He did. But It wasn't sustainable in terms of a third party, and I can't remember the name Of his party. I can't remember it for the life of me by certainly remember the time and there was a lot of talk about the viability and The possibility of a of a third party and it just it just hasn't materialized. I'm not saying it could never happen. I'm just saying that it is very, very difficult. Especially now. In this particular climate, though I could see something like that happening because I think people are really, really getting tired of Partisan nature of politics today, so I could see it more likely happening now than I could 15 20 years ago. I just think we're still quite a ways off from that happening. So let me let me see if I can break down this story as as best as possible. It xylitol long, So I'm going to give you the cliff notes abbreviated version of it. But this is the story of a doctor by the name of Hassan. Go call. He was a doctor in Houston, and he had worked for To hospitals. And he was recruited by the Harris County. This is this is this is a Houston Harris County Public Health Department. To help them with the covert 19 vaccine. So s so he did that because, um, you know, during the pandemic You know, he Woz, you know, kind of floating between hospitals. He wasn't living at home because his wife has a health condition. Um, story, um Pulmonary. Um, sarcoidosis is forgive me for my pronunciations. Um, that is the nature of her condition and makes it makes it very hard for her to breathe, even when she does a minimal, uh, types of whether it's light exercise. Whatever the case may be S so to keep from Potentially spreading the virus to her because he works in hospital. He was staying in a standing motel. For for for several months, and then he got this opportunity. With the Harris County Public Department become their medical director for the covert response team. Now it paid less. Um, then his his previous job, but You know, he he was he wanted to protect his wife by limiting his exposure to the coronavirus because before he was working and an emergency rooms And so this was back in December, and he had he was in a conference call, and we're state health officials explaining the protocols for administering the recently approved mint during a vaccine. So There are 11 doses in a vial and they're viable for six hours after the seal was punctured. So on December 29th Doctor. Go call We arrived in a park. They were having this, um this station in a park in the Houston suburb. They think the name of town is humble. Two. Supervisor backs vaccination event. It was intended mostly for emergency workers. So because it wasn't really highly publicized. There was no more than 250 doses administered, but it was the first public event so they knew would be hiccups. So to make a long story short around 6 45 that night as the event was winding down and Elgin part multiple person arrived for a shot. So a nurse Had to puncture a new vial to administer the vaccine, which activated 26 hour time limit for the 10 remaining doses. And so by that time, the chances of getting 10 eligible people showing up was slim. It was getting dark and they were. They were pretty much done at the site, but Doctor said I could. Google said he was determined he wasn't gonna waste a single dose, so he had a few hours to do it. So he asked the events 20 years of workers they refuse. Either they refuse, or they were, they were already been vaccinated. The paramedics had left two police officers, one of them vaccinated. The other decline the offer so basically what this guy did. Was. He started calling his call his family and friends to see if there were folks who were eligible, You know, elderly, those health conditions. To get a vaccine. So what he did was he He recruited some folks and he passed out the vaccine to them, and he had one left. It was only minutes to spare, and he gave it to his wife. And so he filed a report and he submitted it, and a few days later he was fired. They asked him about it. About what he did, he told them. They fired him, and they charged him. With stealing vaccines. Now. Luckily, the judge threw it out. But now he's without a job. His name has been drug through the mud. So the question is, what should he do? So this doctor get his job back. Should he follow lawsuit? What's his recourse? What should he do here? If you were him, What would you do? 85561616 20 on the accident Workers talking text line will continue to unpack this next. You're listening to W tmj night rolls off.
