Also his fake "charity" gave money to Jenny Mccarthy's anti-vax crusade.

The more I see these tweets from this account the more I can't believe it is not a spoof. Does TheOnion control his twitter account?

"...doesn't feel good and changes"? Quite aside from the anti-vax nuttery, is he mixing up autism and lycanthropy?

He's looking real sharp in his 1940's fedora. He's got nerves of steel, an iron will, and several other metal-themed attributes. His fur is water tight and he's always up for a fight.

He's a semi-aquatic egg-laying mammal of action. He's a furry little flat-foot who'll never flinch from a fray. He's got more than just mad skills, he's got a beaver tail and a bill.

Apparently, the crazy 3:00 in the morning attack fat Miss Universe Muslim parent type tweets come from an Android. The mid-day sane normal kind of tweets that do boring stuff like announcing a rally in Peoria come from an iPhone.

The Machado tweets were an Android. The Trump campaign (if I can apply that word to it) has all of the discipline of an over-sugared eight-year-old on Halloween.

2016 primary debate:

Trump wrote:
Autism has become an epidemic… Because you take a baby in, and I’ve seen it, and I’ve seen it, and I had my children taken care of, over a long period of time, over a two or three year period of time, same exact amount, but you take this little beautiful baby, and you pump – I mean, it looks just like it’s meant for a horse, not for a child, and we’ve had so many instances, people that work for me, just the other day, two-years-old, two-and-a-half-years-old, a child, a beautiful child went to have the vaccine, and came back, and a week later got a tremendous fever, got very, very sick, now is autistic. …I’m in favor of vaccines [but] do them over a longer period of time, same amount, but just in little sections. I think you’re going to have – I think you’re going to see a big impact on autism.


You know it's real because you can't make thst word salad up.

I don't think vaccines cause autism, but I suppose it's possible that Trump's flu-shot caused him to stay up all night rage-tweeting a former Miss Universe and telling voters they should go watch a sex tape.

What's really interesting about this whole anti-vaxx craze is that Republicans appear to be increasingly anti-vaxx while Democrats are decreasing.
Quote:
It used to be more politically difficult for Democrats to come out swinging against anti-vaxxers, a problem that now appears to be growing for Republicans. In 2009, 26 percent of Republicans and 27 percent of Democrats believed parents should be able to decide whether to vaccinate their kids. Now, according to a new Pew survey, 34 percent of Republicans and 22 percent of Democrats hold that view.
http://m.motherjones.com/politics/2015/02/hillary-clinton-va...

Back before the 2008 election, both Obama and Clinton espoused a very Jill-Steinien view on the issue, but now both are pro-vaxx. Actually of the four candidates this time around, only Clinton is firmly pro-vaxx.

I suppose the case could be made that it's all political expedience, but I'll throw in behind the guy saying and doing the right thing before the opposite.

Carson was pro-vaxx. The medical education paid off there.

Another Trump gem from the primary period:

The only vaccine on the standard schedule for a two year old is a flu shot. So is he saying the flu shot causes autism now? Or was the child in one of those alternate schedules that spread things out. Or just a lie. I'll go with lie.

How inept are his handlers that they haven't scrubbed his twitter?

I'd wipe the thing every 20 minutes.

That is not the same as giving him power.

I suppose the second Hep-A is close enough that some kids aged 2 get it. It is scheduled for around 23 months old.

Yes I voted for Brexit, not Farage, who was not the official Brexit leader or spokesman.

You do under stand the difference between choosing a candidate and choosing something that someone else also wants?

I can't believe we're so stupid that being anti-vax doesn't disqualify you from drawing around 41% in the polls. Regardless of ideology, I don't get why you'd say you'd vote for someone that fucking stupid.

It's like running for president and saying "I don't think we went to the moon" or "gravity works faster at night".

But it does! On some nights at least. For example, sometimes things fall a lot more quickly if you drop them, making them much harder to catch before they hit the floor. In fact, gravity is much stronger on those nights - I know this because lots more things seem to fall over, or off of surfaces, which must be due to the increased gravity. Oddly, this only seems to happen on nights when I've had a few glasses of wine and a couple of brandies. That's just a coincidence though. It's definitely the gravity...

Statement: Infants die for absolutely no reason
Response: Oh that's just SIDS.

Statement: Vaccination could cause Autism.
Response: You are a fucking lunatic.

I started questioning vaccination with the yearly "get a flu shot or you will DIE!" campaign and the Chicken Pox vaccine. Finding out kids today get twice as many shots for perfectly survivable illnesses pushed me over the edge.

Any of you pro vaccine peeps go get caught up with the 30 or so shots you missed out on and, if your brain hasn't melted, report back.

Also, stop pushing on others, what you yourself are unwilling to do.

I guess this is the anti-science demographic Trump is trying to lock down.
