On Friday, far-left medical “expert” Dr. Leana Wen told CNN that “American privileges” should only be given to vaccinated Americans. She also suggested that vaccinated people should not be let on planes or do “normal life” until they bow down to the system.
“Dr. Wen, the federal government we have seen since the pandemic set in has had authority over airline travel and rail, air and rail, and when putting in requirements for wearing masks now for, what, more than a year we’ve seen, there are not making a vaccine requirement for air travel or train travel in this announcement from the president. Do you think there should be that requirement and how big of a difference do you think that would make?” asked the far-left CNN host.
“I absolutely think we should have that requirement,” Wen began.
“I think it is a major over sight on the the part of Biden administration to not issue this yesterday. And we have to talk about the reason. The reason isn’t so much that we need to keep train travel and plane travel even safer. They are pretty safe. Although I definitely think that having a vaccine requirement would make it even safer and probably encourage many people who are vaccinated or who have young kids and want to protect them, maybe it will help to encourage those people to start traveling again. But there is an even bigger reason too, which I think we need to make it clear that there are privileges associated with being an American. That if you wish to have these privileges, you need to get vaccinated. Travel, and having the right to travel in our state, it’s not a constitutional right as far as I know to board a plane, and so saying that you want to stay unvaccinated, that is your choice, but if you want to travel, you better go get that vaccine.”
Twitter immediately exploded with reaction:

Did she actually just say that inter-state travel is not a constitutional right for American citizens??? I believe she did. https://t.co/6nJywW6XyE

Actually it is. One of the fundamental rights is liberty. The founders understood liberty as the ability to travel unimpeded by government regulation, this did not only apply to commerce. Do not let them lie and tell you traveling is a privilege. https://t.co/5QihUKGdEi https://t.co/2YaeBMjN40

Quite literally a @BadLegalTakes.
Interstate travel is one of the *only* things SCOTUS has specifically stated is a privilege enjoyed by US citizens. Mandatory vaccination would not pass strict scrutiny. https://t.co/fFvsrZ7PWK

*You* can't travel, but don't mention illegal aliens wandering around freely to wherever they choose https://t.co/1IWe9UIYxn
