    Here's How The Internet Reacted To Olivia Rodrigo's White House Talk About COVID Vaccines

    THE PLAID!!!

    Ahem, Olivia Rodrigo just spoke at the White House lunchtime press briefing about the importance of young people getting vaccinated.

    For one, I would be remiss not to mention her White House outfit — the vintage Chanel! The tiny bag! The heels!!!

    I could absolutely not walk in those heels or, probably, address the White House.

    Moreover, Olivia's message of support is super important — and comes as the Biden administration pushes for people ages 12–27 to get the shot, especially as the Delta variant increases in areas with low vax rates.

    As someone in that age demographic who is fully vaccinated, I can confirm I am both happy and healthy. 

    Naturally, Twitter had a field day:

    nothing but respect for MY president olivia rodrigo

    "and that is why at 0600 this morning the united states military conducted a drone strike in the vicinity of joshua bassett's malibu home"

    so olivia rodrigo complains about her ex boyfriend and gets to go to the white house but when i do it it’s “inappropriate” and “unrelated to the funeral service”? okay https://t.co/eKzkGqQdwW

    “And in conclusion, may I please remind you that it does not say ‘RSVP’ on the Statue of Liberty?”
