In contrast with Jill Stein, Rosanne Barr could have been the Donald Trump equivalent as she has a reputation to be even more incendiary than even the Republican nominee himself, where she would likely receive the same kind of attention by the press.
In preparation of the town hall, the media began to take aim with articles about her "anti-vaxxer" views which they said was one of the issues haunting Jill Stein, which she defends in a sit-down interview with the Washington Post, talking about her experience as a medical doctor and with the vaccine industry.
The article seems to make her reasoning very clear, that she isn't against vaccinations. She is rather more irritated that something the public have to blindly rely on can be easily manipulated in the hands of corporations, whose only interest is the bottom line with some reasonable interest in making a vaccine that helps people.
JILL STEIN: ARE VACCINES STATEMENTS BEING USED TO OVERSHADOW HER POPULARITY GROWTH, PLATFORM?
It seems very obvious at this point that Donald Trump is not going to win the election, which appears to further open the opportunity for Stein to gain the popularity to at least try to get on the debate stage.
Now, there has been talk of a third podium at the presidential debates with Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton; should she beat the Libertarian challenger Gary Johnson, Jill Stein could very well share the stage with two of the nation's most unpopular candidates.
