Naaah... Eventually, it would turn into an artificial reef and setting for the next Disney Finding Nemo flick. His death would finally have the meaning his life could never have had.

I've got a great idea for Trump's next reality show.

It's called "You're Fired"

and we just set fire to Donald Trump.

Vaxxers never really seemed to be a political issue. It was usually Special Snowflake Mommy types with little formal education but who "read a lot" and who "do a lot of research," and "as a mother, I just know" types. There's some OH NOES BIG MEDICINE types on the left, but the bulk seem to be Jenny McCarthy types.

Funny how the identification of a condition like autism corresponds to doctors starting to diagnose patients with it.

I know it is not PC and I apologize for this in advance but children/people with autism used to be referred to by society simply as "retarded". Autism has always been with us but has been labeled differently historically.

Birther
Anti-Vacciner
I recall when Obama was doing the jokes about what else Trump should investigate and he said something about "Was the Moon Landing faked"... Trump gave a nod of "hmm, never know", at least that is how I read it. So, maybe we can mark him up for a Moon landing denier.

All he needs to do is add "9/11 Truther" to his list and he'll be fully tin-foiled.

I thought we already knew he was a big, fat attention whore. Whether or not he's trolling is another matter.

Personally, I think he's living at what I call the "Poe nexus" (after Poe's Law: the idea that any sufficiently wacky position is indistinguishable from a good satire aimed at that same position). That lets him play to every potential audience: the ones looking for entertainment, the ones looking for insight (or what passes for it), and the ones looking for someone to be mad at. It's a perfect storm of derp, and whatever else can be said for the man, he is its master.

Trump probably overstocked on Birfer DERP with the RNC in mind, now that boat has sailed (or more likely sunk as he got his ass banned), he has to sell another DERP flavour. It seems the AntiVac DERP was on sale. It doesn't really matter what he says, those voting vegetables listening to him for advice can't hold a self-inflicted thought for more than a second. As long as it's outrageous and shows up those science-y smug elitist medical liberal communists, it's a win for him.

Wasn't it botched up anyway - from what I remember the doctor that started it had a financial interest in a company that provided the separate vaccines, and the idea of him linking MMR to Autism was so that he could get pressure on NICE/NHS and similar health organisations to switch from buying MMR to the ones the company he was invested in provided. Of course his faked study dropped takeup of all vaccines regardless of whether they had thimerosal or not, very few actually switched to the individual jabs anyway, so he committed a massive fraud, lost his license, killed and/or seriously injured thousands of kids, and he didn't even make any money off it.

Being Britain, they didn't take too kindly to this fraud, either, and from what I've heard, he is completely discredited over there(As well as his "study"), but here in the US, we've got too much of an echo chamber effect for the anti's to even listen to that.

And yeah, now that you bring it up, I think it WAS that he was hired by competitors. I was thinking that it was an anti-vaccine person, but I believe you're right, he was hired by competitors to discredit the current vaccine to get their product into the market.

What a douche.

Mikey1969: xria: Mikey1969: These people don't like to listen to the fact that the whole "bombshell" report was in fact faked by a British Dr who was being paid to say bad things about vaccines. They just like to get all Jenny McCarthy and spout nonsense.

Wasn't it botched up anyway - from what I remember the doctor that started it had a financial interest in a company that provided the separate vaccines, and the idea of him linking MMR to Autism was so that he could get pressure on NICE/NHS and similar health organisations to switch from buying MMR to the ones the company he was invested in provided. Of course his faked study dropped takeup of all vaccines regardless of whether they had thimerosal or not, very few actually switched to the individual jabs anyway, so he committed a massive fraud, lost his license, killed and/or seriously injured thousands of kids, and he didn't even make any money off it.

Being Britain, they didn't take too kindly to this fraud, either, and from what I've heard, he is completely discredited over there(As well as his "study"), but here in the US, we've got too much of an echo chamber effect for the anti's to even listen to that.

And yeah, now that you bring it up, I think it WAS that he was hired by competitors. I was thinking that it was an anti-vaccine person, but I believe you're right, he was hired by competitors to discredit the current vaccine to get their product into the market.

What a douche.


He wasn't hired by competitors, he WAS the competition. Wakefield wanted to market his own measles vaccine and thought linking the existing vaccine to autism was the way to do it.

Double douche.

Jenny McCarthy was an ardent fan of Wakefield's. When he was discredited, she chose to do what was best for Jenny McCarthy's public image instead of what was best not only for people who really do have autism (unlike her son), but for the rest of the population as well.

Mega douche.

Sigh. Yes, there are anti-vaxxers on both sides of the political aisle. It's not an exclusively liberal form of stupid.
