John Oliver: Vaccines

What has happened to my country? It's the 21st Century, yet we've got anti-vaxxers, global warming deniers, creationists who reject the very foundation of modern biology, and all manner of unscientific idiocy.

I know that Donald Trump is president, but are we all eager to return to the Dark Ages?

PS. I'm sorry I haven't been posting. But it's not going to get any better. Everything is just too depressing these days.

I know how you feel, Bill. I'm almost punch-drunk getting hit by all the bullshit.

Makes you wish you were back in Germany, doesn't it? The rest of the world must be aghast watching this country completely self-destruct.

I don't know if I can take another three and a half years of this, Jeff. And that's the best case scenario, which assumes that America pulls its head out of its ass in future elections.

Heck, I'm unlikely to live long enough to see a sane Supreme Court again. And I keep seeing that 85% of Republicans - nearly half of all white voters - think that Donald Trump is doing a good job as president!

I'm struggling to maintain any sense of optimism in the face of complete idiocy like that.
