Last night, most people were talking about the explosive revelations that Donald Trump Jr. sought to collude with a Russian lawyer to get dirt on Hillary Clinton. But Tucker Carlson thought that it might be a perfect time to discuss a different topic: The safety of vaccines.
Vaccines don’t cause autism. But people like liberal activist Robert Kennedy Jr. have been leading the charge to say that they do.

Carlson had Kennedy on his show last night to “just raise questions” about vaccines—something that science has already done again and again.
