Even though there’s no scientific evidence to back up his claims, Donald Trump defended his beliefs during the Sept. 16 Republican Presidential Debate that vaccines cause autism despite the fact that candidate and pediatric neurosurgeon, Dr. Ben Carson, said it’s not possible!
Donald Trump, 69, came out swinging on several issues during the Sept. 16 GOP debate but his most controversial comments were made when asked about his stance on vaccines. The presidential candidate refused to back down from his belief that somehow there is a connection between vaccines and autism even though he has no medical training. Yikes!

“I’ve seen it,” he said at the second GOP debate. “You take this little beautiful baby, and you pump — it looks just like it’s meant for a horse. We’ve had so many instances … a child went to have the vaccine, got very, very sick, and now is autistic.” Meanwhile, candidate and neurosurgeon Dr. Ben Carson explained that there is absolutely no scientific evidence to back this up and cited the fact that several studies have proved that there is no link. But he did agree that: “It has not been adequately revealed to the public what’s actually going on.” But Donald did say that some vaccines are “very important” but that “discretion” should be used by families. Too bad none of the interviewers asked Donald if he is actually been to a doctor appointment when one of his children has been vaccinated. He might have seen for himself that children’s vaccines are not the same size as horse vaccines.
Donald also totally backtracked during the debate when it came to his previous comments about Carly Fiorina‘s looks. “I think she has a beautiful face, and she’s a beautiful woman.” It all stemmed from comments he made to Rolling Stone about her: “Look at that face!” he said. “Would anyone vote for that? Can you imagine that, the face of our next president.”
