As Twitchy reported earlier today, Bill Maher got his facts wrong when he accused Marco Rubio of lying about the national debt.
However, we neglected to point out a second irony in Maher’s tweet. Maher claimed Rubio doesn’t believe in science, but Maher himself holds views about medicine that are … unusual, to say the least:
- He believes flu shots increase the risk of Alzheimer’s disease.
- He thinks polio was wiped out by improved sanitation, not the polio vaccine.
- He believes people get sick because of an “aggregate toxicity” in their bodies caused by pollution.
- He appears to believe that HIV does not cause AIDS.
New Rule: Anti-science lunatics should stop pretending they know more about science than the rest of us.
