Despot-elect Donald Trump himself is a vaccine truther so it probably shouldn't come as a surprise that one of his first acts will be to create a comission on "vaccine safety."
Fellow vaccine truther Robert Kennedy Jr. says Trump asked him to chair the upcoming commission during a meeting at Trump Tower.
After the meeting concluded, Kennedy told reporters that Mr. Trump had asked him to “chair a commission on vaccination safety and scientific integrity.” Kennedy said he told Mr. Trump he would chair such a commission, and that their meeting was held at Mr. Trump’s request. [...]
Kennedy has argued that vaccines, specifically those containing the element thimerosal, may cause autism, a view unsupported by scientific evidence and dismissed as a conspiracy theory by experts.
Of course a man who doesn't believe in science will chair a commission on "scientific integrity."
If Trump doesn't kill us with a tweet and a nuclear warhead, there's always the scourge of preventable diseases. Everything old is new again, even polio.
