Donald Trump claims that vaccines cause autism on Fox News

| »

Presenting Fox News’s latest “expert” in antivaccination lunacy: Donald Trump.

There’s no need for my usual transcript; here’s how it went down:

Donald Trump: I saw kids who were vaccinated and then turned autistic! That can only mean that vaccines cause autism!

Gretchen Carlson: I’ll be almost suspiciously rational for about thirty seconds and point out that science says there’s no link between vaccines and autism.

Trump: Didn’t you hear me? Poor little children! Shots! Autism!

Yeah … at least my opinion of Trump hasn’t sunk any lower. (Then again, that’s probably because it bottomed out ages ago.)
