Twitter users sighed in despair at President Donald Trump’s latest lie.
Trump argued in a White House speech on police reform on Tuesday that scientists “invented the AIDS vaccine.”
In response, many Trump critics highlighted its appalling track record of telling lies. The Washington Post notes that Trump, as of May 29, has made 19,127 false or misleading claims since its inauguration in January 2017.
“Too bad there is no vaccine for the liar series,” only one person responded to the president of the latest production.
Another added: “Fortunately, there is a vaccine to protect against ignorance, lack of preparation, emotion, stunted, racist presidents: Vote.”
how in hell the president thinks there is a vaccine for AIDS

Today on the “Lie, say bullshit, or just plain stupid?” A public figure just claims an AIDS vaccine exists.
You only get one to guess who said it.

Trump just said that the scientists came up with the “AIDS vaccine.” ”
There is no vaccine against AIDS.

No, it is NOT an “AIDS vaccine” @potus thanks in part to the institutionalization of bigotry that held the research when the disease was “othered” by a ruthless administration – a model that you have to break away from #covid even before more people die on your watch. pic.twitter.com/0LR1W4IUA2

Trump just said there was an “AIDS vaccine”.
What is actually the kiss.
There is no such thing as an AIDS vaccine.#TrumpPressConference

I was excited when I saw “an AIDS vaccine” trending b / c I said to myself “finally, something is going right in 2020.”
Then I realized that the man who called COVID19 a hoax, refused the proper tests, and pushed demystified the drugs as if by magic invented a vaccine that does not really exist.

I don’t even have to know why an AIDS vaccine was trending. I knew immediately who said it. This is where we are now.

Hi, ER Doc here.
Everyone should know that the effectiveness of an AIDS vaccine does NOT exist.

Hey number 1 on the lies that spit out of your mouth each time you wake up second more frantic than ever. There is NO vaccine to prevent AIDS if my sister Alexis would still be alive.

Donald says the scientists working on a coronavirus vaccine also came up with the AIDS vaccine, so rest assured that they are not boasting about it.

There is no vaccine against AIDS. HIV and AIDS is still a death sentence for many.
I’m not doing it today with Trump.

Fortunately, there is a vaccine to protect against ignorance, lack of preparation, emotion, stunted, racist presidents:
Right to vote.#AIDS

There is no AIDS vaccine and health care for those with AIDS and HIV remains ridiculously expensive and inaccessible to countless people who need it.
I hope this clarifies the statement that was just kicked out by the “President” of the United States.

Well, now that Trump has let us know that there is an AIDS vaccine because it didn’t exist until today when he says it does … I’m sure there is a final word to that, but i can’t think of that because my mouth still hurts me from touching the ground when he said it.
– Kurt Eichenwald (@kurteichenwald) June 16, 2020
Just to be clear, there is no AIDS vaccine.
