We already know Joe Scarborough will lie to make his point, but even his attempt to turn President Obama into an anti-vaxxer fall flat as comedian Joy Behar has the perfect retort:

“My friend Jenny McCarthy is in the middle of this,” Behar said. “She said it caused autism back then. Now presidential candidates are agreeing with her! So my feeling is: why doesn’t Jenny run for president?”

“This is this neanderthal thinking on the right that is really scary and dangerous,” Behar continued. “Climate change deniers, vaccination deniers — they are going to kill us!”

MJ cohosts Mika Brezezinski and Joe Scarborough interjected that the issue was not only the GOP’s side. “There are people on the left who have this issue,” Brzezinski said.

“Are they running for president?” Behar asked.
