Americans Nostalgic for the Times Trump was Just an Anti-Vaxxer

In recent weeks President Donald Trump has seriously escalated his war on science, data, the medical field, and logic.

These actions have Americans missing simpler times. “I wish he would just go back to being anti-vaxx, that was plenty cray cray,”...
