The White House has tapped YouTube stars, including the 30-year-old Latino make-up artist, YouTuber, entrepreneur and beauty blogger, for COVID-19 vaccine messaging, as Joe Biden and Anthony Fauci appear in new videos released as part of a virtual town hall in an effort to reach young audiences unsure or hesitant to get the shots.
Manny Mua, whose real name is Manuel Gutierrez Jr., conducted an interview with President Jo Biden, in which he asks about the rumors of a vaccine passport needed to travel or to go to concerts.
“Federally, we are not going to have any mandate, and we don’t keep records, federally, of people who have gotten the vaccine,” Biden said. He said that the rumor of vaccine passports “just plays into paranoia in some people, in particular young people. That is just not the case.”
Manny Mua also asked Biden that if he were stranded on a desert island, and he could only bring one skincare product, what would it be?
“I happen to be Irish, and I think my wife before I headed to the island would tell me, you better bring some sunscreen,” Biden said.
Others appearing in the videoes include the stars of Brave Wilderness, hosted by Nathaniel “Coyote” Peterson and Mark Vins, who have an outdoor adventure channel, and Jackie Aina.
