Sen. Josh Hawley (R-MO) said he doesn’t like that the Biden White House has been asking Facebook to take down posts with lies about the COVID-19 vaccine.

On Thursday, White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki said the administration has been in touch with Facebook in order to help the public as it lives through the current health crisis.

“I think it’s scary. I think it’s really scary to have the federal government of the United States, the White House, compiling lists of people, organizations, whatever, and then going to a private company that, by the way, is a monopoly, Facebook, and saying you need to censor, you need to do something about this, you need to tell these users, these private users at a private company what they can or cannot say,” Hawley told Fox News.

Republicans like Hawley and Fox News have repeatedly attacked efforts to inform the public about vaccines, even describing volunteers going door-to-door to promote vaccines as “Nazis.”

Infections and deaths from COVID have continued to plummet in America, with most new infections confined to those who have refused vaccines.

Under Biden the economy has begun to recover and many believe Republicans are pushing vaccine disinformation with the goal of hurting Democrats politically.
