  1. Healthy young child goes to doctor, gets pumped with massive shot of many vaccines, doesn’t feel good and changes – AUTISM. Many such cases!

    – Donald Trump, Mar 28 2014

  2. From the article:

    “”We’re still working on Ebola,” Trump said. “We’re doing a vaccine … we’re still working on that.”

    With coronavirus, the death rate is currently closer to “1 or 2 percent,” Trump said.

    In the other case it was a virtual 100 percent. Now they have it, they have studied it, they know very much. In fact, we’re very close to a vaccine,” Trump said.”

    So, it does sound like he was talking about Ebola during the coronavirus conversation, but not confusing the two. Despite the fact that he sounds like a fucking idiot when he talks about literally any topic, this is kinda misleading. Thousands of reasons to hate Trump, but this isn’t much of a story.

  3. He wants to cut more than $500 million in funding that was previously allocated for the U.S. Ebola virus response.

  4. So, either he was talking about Ebola and he is not aware that a vaccine already exists, or he was talking about Coronavirus, for which any vaccine that can be widely distributed is several months away.

  5. His incompetence is already making this much much much worse. I wonder how he’ll blame that on Hillary or Obama.

  6. For the love of gawd, Vote ANYONE that is the Democratic candidate so we can get rid of this orange shit stain from our White House.

  7. Trump is a fucking idiot. He’s the luckiest fucking idiot possibly ever to walk the face of this earth. How the fuck did he get this far into his term without facing a real potential catastrophe that he himself didn’t create? Shit, I guess we’re actually all pretty lucky that none of the worst shit that’s happened in the past 3 years has happened to the 50 states, or we’d end up like fucking Puerto Rico under this incompetent assclown.

  8. I wouldn’t trust this dipshit to empty my litter box, let alone give me updates about a vaccine

  9. His ignorance, arrogance and stupidity are unbelievably dangerous

  10. Im surprised the dumbcunt even believes in vaccines.

  11. – but white House says he was taking out of his arse

  12. Good god he is a complete fuckwit.

  13. He’s not sure which one he’s talking about. The more he says, the more obvious his dementia is.

  14. Trump gets veggies secretly fed to him in mash, like a baby, so he stays healthy.

    He is not exactly an authority on public health.

  15. This moron doesn’t even know what a vaccine is. Also, if he says it’s “very close” that means it’s “very far”

  16. To Trump it’s all the same. He has do clue, and doesn’t care, so long as he himself is not affected by it – i.e. his cult of personality remains.

  17. The people of earth need to make a “dumbest human being” award for this goof.

  18. Just a traitorous buffoon and global laughingstock.

  19. A company in Cambridge, MA sent a vaccine for testing to a federal agency today. https://www.boston.com/news/health/2020/02/25/moderna-coronavirus-vaccine

  20. I long for the day I no longer hear or read his Idiocracy. Nirvana.

  21. You’ve got to be kidding me. Was there ever a dumber more incompetent President?

  22. It’s becoming apparent that more often than not, trump has no idea what he is talking about.

  23. Half the country is this stupid

  24. Whatever.. I’m ashamed of this stupidity.

  25. It has already been reported by leading experts that the best case scenario is a vaccine at some point early next year.

  26. I’m surprised the anti-vaxxers aren’t up at arms over this and protest against the development of vaccines for either disease.

  27. did you know that trumps grandfather and his brother in law died because of the spanish flu?

  28. Hope this puts an end to the anti-vaxxer movement, one way or another.

    Clueless Trump needs to shut up and go away.
