Jenny McCarthy has been catching a lot of flak after being named as new co-host on The View, and I think people just need to give her a break. It’s got to be difficult to ignore the medically-substantiated claims about the dangers of silicone breast implants in favor of soapboxing about medically-unsubstantiated claims about childhood vaccinations.
Case in point: those implants she’s holding over there are just for chuckles and laughs. Because putting things in your body that could cause it harm is super-funny.
I’m imagining that the decision to put her on the show went something like this:
ABC exec 1: “Let’s give someone with no experience who’s totally anti-science her own established media platform!”
ABC exec 2: “Yeah! But let’s give her some credibility by making sure she has giant boobs.”
Then they probably both went off and texted pictures of their penises.
I wonder how many parents will choose not to vaccinate their kids now because of her. Ridiculous choice, ABC.
