It [COVID-19 vaccine distribution] is a wartime scenario. When war is happening, you don't go home at 5 PM, and wake up at 9 AM, and clock out for an hour for lunch ... We've created incredible disincentives in the system. In fact, [Andrew] Cuomo put out a million-dollar fine if you get your vaccine out of line. Think about the disincentive that creates. Now, people are more scared about giving the vaccine to the wrong person than they are incentivized to give the vaccine to the right person.

David Friedberg's COVID-19 Vaccine Distribution Plan

21 million+ [COVID-19 vaccine] doses have been distributed in the United States; 5.9 [million] have made their way into people's arms ... Over 75% of doses have not gone in people's arms. And, in California, we have distributed 5.85% of the population's vaccines, but we've only put 1.3% in people's arms ... We're at 25% of where we should be. It is absolutely unbelievable that this is happening.

As of Early 2021, Just 25% of Distributed COVID-19 Vaccine Doses Have Been Administered

There are a lot of very, very reasonable Republicans and a lot of very reasonable Democrats. The fringes of both parties are functionally mentally retarded.

Chamath Palihapitiya Rants About the Deranged Republicans Who Stormed the Capitol

Even if we don't find a way to basically put Trump in jail for this, I can 100% guarantee you, I will bet a million bucks, that now the southern district of New York—gloves off. Every single state that can go after this guy—gloves off. And, to the extent that Joe Biden had any incentive to basically let this go away at the federal level—gloves off.

It's Gloves Off When It Comes to Punishing Trump After He Leaves Office

I think Trump is absolutely capable of doing something in the last 14 days. If he did this 15 days out, why wouldn't he do something else 7 days out or 3 days out. He's a maniac. I mean this is insane, deranged, criminal, lunatic behavior. It's completely possible that he could do something more dangerous in the last 14 days. I know that sounds crazy, but look at what we saw yesterday [the storming of Capitol Hill].

Should Pence Invoke the 25th Amendment & Remove Trump from Office?

I actually feel very bad for the people that stormed the Capitol. I feel like these are folks that are on the fringes who just need a vessel, and Trump is a vessel ... He instigated them, and runs away.

Chamath Palihapitiya Rants About the Deranged Republicans Who Stormed the Capitol

The bottom 10% of Americans make more money and have a better position in life than the top 10% of Kenyans.
