Day 20,185

Today’s doodle, ripped from today’s headlines. Explains a lot, really. How lovely that someone with actual brain damage may cause people to sway the vote enough to get 45 back into office. For what it is worth, he claims a full recovery from the incident, but he also has promoted a conspiracy theory that coronavirus vaccines were developed to control people via microchips. He has endorsed the false notion that antidepressants are linked to school shootings. And he has pushed the decades-old theory that the C.I.A. killed his uncle, former President John F. Kennedy. (He also stated that wifi causes cancer and “leaky brain”, and that AIDS is not a virus, but passed by doing poppers)

Robert F. Kennedy Jr., an environmental lawyer, is a leading vaccine skeptic and purveyor of conspiracy theories who has leaned heavily on misinformation as he mounts his impossible 2024 campaign for the presidency.

In a three-part series,’s science fact-checking project, SciCheck, examines the trail of false and misleading claims on health topics such as vaccines, autism, and Covid-19 made by Robert F. Kennedy, Jr., a longtime anti-vaccine advocate who is running for president
