Former President Donald Trump and conservative pundit Bill O’Reilly were met with boos after revealing to a live audience that they were both fully vaccinated and had their booster shots.
The duo has been engaged in a “history tour,” speaking to crowds across the nation for the last two weeks.
Trump and O’Reilly revealed their triple vaccinated status during their final stop in Dallas on Sunday.

“Both the president and I are vaxxed,” O’Reilly said before turning to the former president and asking if he got the booster.
“Yes,” Trump replied.
“I got it too,” O’Reilly stated.
As some in the crowd began to boo, Trump smiled and waved his arms, urging them to stop, saying that it was just a “tiny group” doing it.
“Don’t, don’t, don’t,” Trump said. “That’s alright, it’s a very tiny group up there.”
During the tour, Trump had boasted about the vaccine being developed under his administration and touted its success.
“Look, we did something that was historic, we saved tens of millions of lives worldwide when we, together, all of us, we got a vaccine done,” Trump said, according to a report from Insider. “This was going to ravage the country far beyond what it is right now, take credit for it. It’s great, what we’ve done is historic. Don’t let them take it away.”
While Trump is vaccinated and has openly called for his supporters doing the same, he has also expressed disagreement with mandates.
“If you don’t want to take it, you shouldn’t be forced to take it, no mandates,” he said.
Trump told the Wall Street Journal in September that it was unlikely he would get a booster.
“I feel like I’m in good shape from that standpoint — I probably won’t,” Trump said. “I’ll look at stuff later on … I’m not against it, but it’s probably not for me.”
