John Oliver Proves He Knows Vaccine Injury Like He Does Islamic Terrorism

There is nothing more damning of John Oliver than the words of John Oliver. All of the following are from his June 25th episode of Last Week Tonight with John Oliver.

On President Trump’s decision to space out vaccinations:

…it’s the middle ground between sense and nonsense. It’s like saying, ‘It would be crazy to eat that entire bar of soap, so I’ll just eat half of it.’

On exonerated British doctor Andrew Wakefield:

He’s basically the Lance Armstrong of doctors.

On mercury in flu shots still given to pregnant mothers:

So we essentially spent time and energy solving a problem that never existed. It’s like spending years fighting to get marshmallows out of Lucky Charms because a few people think minions can choke to death on them. 

On retired Congressman Dan Burton’s issue with lack of safety studies:

Proving a negative is an impossible standard. And that is also a slippery slope, because it means that I can say to youYouDan Burton, are a DONKEY FUCKER!’

Yet knowingly proving a negative to prove there is no conspiracy to cover up vaccine harms, falsely claiming:

On those rare occasions when there have been issues with vaccines, they’ve been pulled and fast. And I know that that explanation will still not satisfy some.

Finally, and worst of all, on his own infant son born premature:

We are vaccinating him fully, on schedule. And if I can overcome the temptation to listen to the irrational shouting of my terrified lizard brain, then I believe that everyone can.

Captain Picard facepalm

 

Latino Actor Esai Morales Weighs Trump Vote Due To Vaccine Stance

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!”
