(Here is a reminder about William Thompson’s confact info: email@example.com, (404) 498-3845 (office), (404) 226-8428 (cell). Here is his attorney’s email, too: firstname.lastname@example.org. The journal likely to publish Thompson’s paper can be reached at email@example.com, 202-334-2679)
When I called the office of Congressman Mark Meadows and urged that he subpoena then-CDC whistleblower William Thompson on vaccine-autism research fraud, I was sure to remind them that Donald Trump believes vaccines cause autism. “That’s a good point,” the staffer on the other end of the line told me.
That was over a month ago – before Donald Trump became the GOP’s nominee for president of the United States.
How ironic for him to win the nomination on the eve of Thompson’s extremely dishonest and contradictory report in which he is expected to recant and say autism diagnoses caused vaccinations instead of the vaccinations causing autism. For over eight years, Donald Trump has spoken out in support of children who were injured by vaccines and descended into autism and was the first person ever to do so in a presidential debate. When Thompson first released his statement on CDC omitting evidence vaccines were causing autism in African-American children, Donald Trump tweeted the following statements:
I am being proven right about massive vaccinations—the doctors lied. Save our children & their future.
— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) September 3, 2014
So many people who have children with autism have thanked me—amazing response. They know far better than fudged up reports! — Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) September 4, 2014
Trump has even said what he would do about the vaccine problem as president, 2 years before he even announced he was running:
If I were President I would push for proper vaccinations but would not allow one time massive shots that a small child cannot take – AUTISM. — Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) March 27, 2014
Who knows what – if anything – could convince Thompson to pull his sham paper and go back to fighting for kids. If Donald Trump (now ahead of Crooked Hillary according to the latest poll) winning the Republican Party’s nomination for president of the United States won’t do it, it is hard to imagine what will besides Trump becoming president.
Regardless, it is pertinent to remind both Thompson and his lawyer Frederick Morgan of this. I emailed Morgan earlier today to remind him that Trump could win the nomination in a matter of hours, and he did by a landslide.
