Darla Shine, the wife of White House communications director Bill Shine recently shared her very dangerous anti-vaxx opinion on her Twitter profile. Mind you, she’s not a doctor, nor a nurse, and she has no medical expertise to speak of.
She saw a segment about the growing measles outbreak in Oregon and Washington state on TV, and the article apparently made her very nostalgic for “the golden age of communicable disease”.
She called out CNN’s story as fake, and she even accused them of spreading hysteria. She also pointed out that “the entire Baby Boom population is alive today” and had measles as kids. However, she really went off the rails when she called for bringing back the childhood diseases because “they keep you healthy & fight cancer”.
Obviously, they don’t.
Check out what she had to say:
Shine has been in trouble on the social media in the past as well, and she lamented that she couldn’t use the n-word in now-deleted tweets. However, even worse than that was her “The Darla Shine Show” – the nationally syndicated radio show. Shine has previously said that women in the military should expect to be harassed, and she also pushed the standard nonsense about vaccines causing autism.
