    There have been many dishonest presidential candidates in our history; indeed, it would be almost impossible, no matter how virtuous, to spend a year or two giving speeches, addressing audiences large and small, trying to persuade voters — in short, talking all day while your words are being recorded — without getting a few things wrong. Some correct themselves after it happens, some just don't use that particular line again, and others forge on ahead, repeating falsehoods even after they've been called out.

    But there are liars, and then there's Donald Trump. He may have an inflated opinion of himself, but when it comes to lying, the man has truly reached a level no one else can approach.

    One of the latest is his series of tweets ranting about vaccines and autism. He's apparently ignoring the fact that any connection between the two was debunked a long time ago.

    Ignoring the facts and playing them.

    I think it would be horrible enough to be a doctor, trying to do good, but for whatever reason fucking up and damaging the patient. That must be tough for them to live with.

    Now picture someone fucking people up for votes.
