Howard Dean: Rand Paul's Anti-Vaxxer Remarks Disqualify Him From Becoming President


Former Vermont Governor Howard Dean, who is a doctor himself, didn't hold back when asked about Ron Paul's claim that vaccinations can lead to mental disorders.

From this Monday's Hardball:

DEAN: I actually believe this disqualifies Rand Paul from becoming President of the United States. If you're a physician and you say what he just said, then you are clearly willing to override any set of facts that you ought to know.

It's one thing for Christie to blunder his way through this and try to pander. For Rand Paul to deny his entire education as a physician, I assume he went to a good medical school and knows something about medicine, that is truly appalling and he, a guy like that should never be let near the White House.
