As always, James Carville sums up the recent Republican 180 on vaccines nicely!

Time to stop shaping our conversations about vaccine-hesitancy and voter "confidence" in elections around the feelings of Trump supporters. The specter of alienating those voters is being widely abused by bad faith actors, and we should say so. My latest:https://t.co/QFGWVy5X0l
