Puerto Rican-American television actor Esai Morales who played a Latino President on an HBO series told TMZ that he is considering a vote for Donald Trump. Morales’ reason? Trump’s suggestion that autism is caused by vaccinations, which Morales had spoken passionately about at an autism summit that was held last year.

At Give Autism A Chance 2015, Morales participated in a panel discussion that included former GOP congressman Dave Weldon and which was moderated by much-maligned British doctor Andrew Wakefield. There Morales took a very strong position both that vaccines cause autism and that this fact continues to be covered up by the federal government. He was also fully aware of the government scientist Dr. William Thompson who has spoken out about his colleagues hiding data, which Donald Trump has tweeted about.

Crooked Hillary Clinton, in stark contrast, takes the position that questioning vaccines is akin to questioning the color of the sky and the shape of the earth. Her running mate signed into law the mandate of an STD shot for sixth-graders and the now-disgraced chair of the Democratic National Committee said “any risk” from childhood vaccines has been “disproven”. She’s now an “honorary chair” of Crooked Hillary’s campaign. On vaccines, Crooked Hillary’s position could not be more different than Donald Trump’s.

Esai Morales told TMZ he was initially resistant to the idea of a Trump presidency, but would reconsider “because of his stance on vaccines”. The actor even hinted at a possible future endorsement, despite stopping short of one during the interview. Morales’ reconsideration would come as no surprise to anyone in attendance at the 2015 autism summit he expressed his outrage to, although he agreed with his interviewer that being Latino and supporting Trump was “odd”.

Nonetheless, polls and rally turnout both suggest otherwise. In fact, Trump outperforms the two previous GOP nominees for support among Latinos in the latest polls. And in the Republican National Convention which Autism Investigated live-streamed, signs reading “LATINOS PARA TRUMP” were common among the audience. Autism Investigated also witnessed firsthand numerous Latinos among the large crowd of supporters who showed up at a recent Trump rally in The Woodlands, TX. By all indicators, Trump appears to have attracted Latino supporters rather than alienate them.

In the brief TMZ interview, Esai Morales did acknowledge one strength of Trump’s that knows no party lines and that may help him more generally with Latinos: “He’s a showman, and we like our entertainment.” Like showmanship, Trump’s stance on vaccine safety has been yet another way for him to reach across the party divide to people who otherwise would not support him. Autism Investigated hopes Morales hops on the Trump Train to better the chances that the people behind the crooked vaccine program will soon hear those two well-deserved words: “You’re fired!”

    Accountability in these government health agencies is nonexistent!

    If you or I were responsible for the premeditated murder or the permanent disabling or massive harm of another human being we would be sentenced up to life in prison or be handed the ultimate prize in the game of evil actions … the death penalty.


    Why does everyone pussyfoot around that accusation? It is surely blatant, BUT from the absolute proof available it is also blatantly obvious and appropriate! Or do our governments enjoy special privilege or immunity from murder charges us lowly folk do not … WAIT a minute, this is a Republic and WE ARE THE GOVERNMENT, so it may be time to prosecute for murder these tyrants and traitors to our health and the safety and health of our much more vulnerable children.

    We do have a third option for president; Gary Johnson. He is also against mandatory vaccination. The more I read up on him the more I think I will vote Libertarian!

    • Besides the fact that he stands no chance at winning, he said virtually nothing about the vaccine issue and called Crooked Hillary “wonderful” as recently as last month!

      • Since this post, Gary Johnson has said this month (Sept. 2016) that he supports mandatory vaccination, but then he retracted it soon after. Obviously, someone warned him that libertarians would not appreciate his stance, but the fact remains that he said it!
