RFK Quick To Attack Trump on Vaccines, But Soft on Democrats

Robert F. Kennedy Jr. appears to have publicly given up hope on the Trump Administration’s willingness to tackle vaccines, according to The Guardian. The move comes weeks after his nephew delivered the Democrat Party’s response to the State of the Union address, marking a resurgent role of the Kennedy family in politics. It also represents a stark contrast to the appeasing approach RFK took with President Obama and many other prominent Democrat apologists of vaccination.

When news broke that Congressman Joe Kennedy III would deliver the Democrat response to the State of the Union Address, Robert Kennedy was quick to hype the story on Twitter.

Weeks after Joe Kennedy’s statement, Robert Kennedy made these remarks to The Guardian about the current president’s alleged betrayal of vaccine safety:

“We were told President Trump wanted to meet directly with us. Not only did nothing happen, they’ve cut off all communication with people who care about this issue. The administration has decided to go in another direction.”

“I’ve seen a tremendous deflation among a community of parents and children’s health advocates across the country who believed the promises that President Trump made to the campaign, who put tremendous faith in him and now are feeling enormous betrayal and disappointment.”

According to The Guardian, Robert Kennedy has not had contact with the White House for “at least six months.” Around that same time, he disclosed details of his recent meetings with federal officials to STAT NewsAutism Investigated has reached out to Kennedy’s organization World Mercury Project to inquire about the circumstances that led to these disclosures and is waiting to hear back. One cannot help but wonder his motivations for speaking so freely to the mainstream press while trying to sway a president who has been so critical of unwarranted leaks and fake news by that same press.

Throughout the election, Kennedy was a staunch supporter of Hillary Clinton. That was despite her adamant defense of vaccination, even attacking Donald Trump over his statements about the vaccine problem.

Years ago, a doctor close to the Clintons convinced Kennedy to release a chopped version of his landmark book on mercury in vaccines. That failed attempt to sway Senate Democrats, the Obama Administration and an anticipated Clinton Administration faced massive protest from the autism community. Autism Investigated responded by posting the complete manuscript online, taking it down only after Kennedy published the full version one year later.

But despite spending years trying to appease Obama officials, Kennedy is quick to alienate the first president to have openly supported the fact that vaccines cause autism. Kennedy’s decision comes as the permanent position of CDC chief again remains vacant while that same president has the sole authority to fill it with a decent appointment. What Kennedy did could not have been done at a worse time.

    It’s Official – Teens Diagnosed With MS After Gardasil Vaccines

    In 2015, a Scandinavian study found no increased risk for Multiple Sclerosis or demyelinating disease among 4 million females, of whom 800,000 received the HPV vaccination.

    But at a recent forum in San Diego, researchers presented two cases of multiple sclerosis (MS) that had developed in teenagers after receiving Gardasil, the human papillomavirus (HPV) vaccine.

    The study author Ye Hu reported on 2 teens who experienced MS symptoms 1 to 2 weeks after receiving the vaccination.
