Bill Gates just told a hilarious yet disturbing story about two conversations with President Donald Trump where he didn't know that there was a difference between HIV and genital wart virus HPV. "There was a thing during the election where he and I were at the same place and I avoided him", Gates said.
- All In w/Chris Hayes (@allinwithchris) May 17, 2018Coming up: More exclusive footage of Bill Gates talking about avoiding the president, freaky questions about vaccines, and Trump-style stunts. There are vaccines for HPV but no known cure for HIV.
Although initially Gates thought Trump "was being super nice" to meet with his daughter Jennifer, ahead of his sit down with him, that opinion soon changed when the president started talking about Gates' daughter.More news: Goodbye To Google Play Music, Hello To New YouTube Music Service
'Melinda didn't like that too well'. "So I was able to explain that those are rarely confused with each other".
Gates remarked how in both meetings with Trump the president asked him about the harmful effects of vaccines. "That would be a bad thing, don't do that.'" On the upside, Trump was wise enough to ask the actual genius that is Gates if he wanted to be one of his science advisors. "So clearly he'd been driven away but he wanted to make a grand entrance in a helicopter".
'Because he was considering a commission to look into the ill effects of vaccines, and Robert Kennedy Jr. was advising him that vaccines were causing bad things, and I said "no, that's a dead end, don't do that".
Several weeks ago, Gates told STAT News, that POTUS had offered him a job as the White House science adviser.More news: Police respond to report of person with gun at Boulevard mall
"So when I first talked to him it was actually kind of scary how much he knew about my daughter's appearance", he continued, as some members of the audience audibly groaned.
Human papilloma virus (HPV) is the name for a group of viruses that affect your skin and the moist membranes lining your body. HIV, or human immunodeficiency virus, is a virus that depresses the immune system and can lead to the onset of acquired immune deficiency syndrome (AIDS), a condition that caused one million deaths in 2016, according to the United Nations. There are many different types of HPV. The virus is the most common STD.
There's now no cure for HIV, but there are very effective drug treatments that enable most people with the virus to live a long and healthy life.More news: Zuckerberg to meet European Parliament leaders
