Kushner is no stellar intellect, but DT probably doesn't need/want that...i mean, he knows it all, right?
Ironically, it seems Kushner is ideologically a Democrat, and his closeness to Trump may effectively weaken Trump's conservative resolve and impede his momentum.

And as it is often the case, Democrats will likely feign outrage over nepotism and oppose his appointment, to their own detriment. The "tard" part of the perjorative hasn't been added there for no reason.

I know. All sorts are creeping out of the woodwork. And, from all persuasions. But RFK Jr should know better.

Re: Will Trump be a Good President?

So tell us, Phos, how this nutcase conspiracy theory proponent who believes that vaccines should be banned is going to MAGA? Presumably that's an America just for the existing population that has already been vaccinated, and not an America for the next generation (or at least, as many as survive into adulthood)?

I wish I could, but I don't know him, nor what they are on about. I haven't even heard of Trump making such an appointment.

Although generally, I don't think its a bad idea to throw a skeptic in the midst of such groups. One ought to be confident they can withstand any scrutiny.

"Blah blah blah, I'm not listening, blah blah blah"

He's not a frigging skeptic, he's an out-and-out denialist who believes vaccines contribute to autism.

So if you have not heard of it then it has not happened?

You guys are hilarious. There is no Commission on Vaccine Safety. If they form such a commission, it will simply gather information and file a report.

But oh, call the Hague, you Meryl Streeps!

If Trump decides not to vaccinate Americans why would we Europeans care or call the Hague?

Actually, I was referring to the vaccines-cause-autism conspiracy theorist Trump, but obviously my question applies equally to Kennedy. You've heard of Trump, right? Although I do appreciate that you wouldn't know what he is on about, either. Nobody does.
