Trump asks vaccine skeptic Robert Kennedy Jr. to lead commission on ‘vaccine safety’

quote [ Kennedy has pushed a widely discredited theory that vaccines cause autism, which the president-elect also supports. ]

I swear he's doing this on purpose. It's like he's trying to cause the government to collapse in a fiery wreck or something.

Well - he did run on the "government is one big fiery wreck and destined to collapse" ticket.

And he's trying to hasten the process no matter how many people it hurts.

This is why you should never put people who believe government can't work in charge of the government. Voting Republican is like choosing a Christian Scientist as your doctor.

The guy is playing 52 Pick-up and putting in charge the first card he picks. And of course all of the cards are made up of people that should not be allowed to live....I mean work for Trump.

Sorry, did you not get that this is exactly why people voted for him?
mechanical contrivance said @ 2:23pm GMT on 11th Jan
I thought people voted for him because he promised to get rid of all the brown people.

Theresa May put Boris Johnson in charge of European Affairs. Trump is following a similar tactic: appoint your political rivals to posts where their skeptical, critical views will immediately clash with the on-ground reality of their job.

It ties them down and limits the damage they can do to you or the world in general, and, with a bit of luck they might come out of it a little wiser than they went in.

But... Kennedy isn't a political rival. He agrees with him.

Trump appointed mostly billionaire businessmen, not political rivals.

There's got to be a document, rather then just all these little OMG WTF moments, documenting the complete fuckery taking place. He hasn't even been sworn in yet and already his asshattery is so voluminous I'm afraid much of it will just be forgotten or not believed by future generations. Who's documenting Trump?

But wait, there's more!

A word of warning:

Since buddying up to the anti-vaxxers, I have been watching a very strange event unfold across social media. Breitbart (which I will not be linking) is pushing a narrative that the resurgence of preventable diseases is caused by immigrants. Despite the fact that nearly every case has been traced to anti-vaccination natives.

In fact, I have heard anti-vax hippies start using an old cannard from the White Aryan Resistance from the 90s of "third world invasion."

I am not quite sure what to make of all this, except to say it takes a special sort of asshole to be the cause of a problem, and to blame it on brown people.

That doesn't sounds all that special to me. Republicans seem to do it all the time.
