Darla Shine, the wife of Bill Shine, the White House deputy chief of staff for communications, went on an anti-vaccination rant on Wednesday, claiming that a measles outbreak was “fake” and “hysteria.”
Shine was commenting on a CNN report that outlined a measles outbreak in Washington state.
“Here we go LOL #measlesoutbreak on #CNN #Fake #Hysteria The entire Baby Boom population alive today had the #Measles as kids Bring back our #ChildhoodDiseases they keep you healthy & fight cancer,” she wrote.
“I had the #Measles #Mumps #ChickenPox as a child and so did every kid I knew – Sadly my kids had #MMR so they will never have the life long natural immunity I have. Come breathe on me!”
As people began criticizing her anti-vaccination stance, Shine began telling the “left” and “trolls” to “keep coming after me.”
In 2014, President Donald Trump seemed to be against vaccinations, tweeting that when a child gets “pumped with massive shot of many vaccines” they get autism.
