Trump appoints a Kennedy

USA Today reports:

President-elect asked Robert F. Kennedy Jr., an environmental activist and skeptic of vaccines, to chair a presidential commission on vaccine safety, Kennedy said Tuesday.

The two have questioned whether vaccines cause autism, a claim consistently debunked by medical professionals across the board.

The commission will be designed “to make sure we have scientific integrity in the vaccine process for efficacy and safety effects,” Kennedy told reporters after the meeting with Trump.

Oh dear. One vaccine skeptic appoints another to head up a commission to decide if they are safe.

As much as I enjoy seeing the celebrities in the US have meltdowns about a Trump presidency, this reminds me that he has many appalling beliefs and policies.
