He also refused to say Trump was wrong.

Everyone involved with or appointed by this administration needs to be tossed the day Trump is out of office.

Blargh.

He's just dancing around, not confirming AND not denying Trump's statement.  Both of those things hurt everyone.  If he wants to keep his job, he can't say D2S is just making shiat up and lying.  At the same time, he can't say D2S is correct because that will kill people.

IMO, just say he's lying and quit.

Difficulty: Trump would choose his replacement, and Mitch would confirm that replacement.

That was going to happen anyway.  But saying that Trump is lying and then quitting would make the point better, IMO.

See, I'm not an anti-vaxxer, even a little bit, but I don't want to be first in line for the vaccine that gets approved by Trump's FDA and CDC.

If the borders weren't closed I'd happily fly to Germany or South Korea when they come up with something.

Listen, you know you are going to get stabbed in the back, so why not go out in a blaze of glory and just say it on TV that Trump is a lying liar and he is making the pandemic worse?  Sure you'll get jnsta-fired, but guess what, you just farkin' secured a job at CNN, ABCNEWS, CBSNEWS, etc.

It makes sense in Trump's head:  he has experience making and selling food, he's wealthy and conservative.  He's also an asshole.  Ergo, he's perfect for the Trump pick for FDA commissioner.

And? I mean these folks want us to believe they are singlehandedly responsible for keeping this "burning plane" of democracy aloft. There are rats chewing on electrical system, and if it wasn't for their steady guidance, and furious peddling on their stationary bikes every morning, we'd have already crashed and burned?

They need to go down in flames too. All of them. Self centered, selfish muthafarkers. They knew all along shiat was out of control, and they, and their bosses weren't prepared, or even suited to help. But they kept pretending like they were helpless. Hey the president crashed and burned the economy because he refused to listen to, or even implement precautions when we first brought it up! Oh dear! Let's just pretend like he isn't a psychopath, and perhaps Invite him to our next Washington soiree!

Yeah, you got your Fauci's and other long-timers. They built their careers out of competence, and trust. But now they look like they are being held hostage. They are sitting there, eyes covered, hands tied behind their backs, and shivering. What good is trying to keep your job if you're not allowed to actually do it?

Money is a hell of a motivator. I guess it's better than unemployment and COBRA.

FDA commissioner refuses to defend Trump claim that 99% of Covid-19 cases are 'harmless'

Over half a million dead people would beg to differ.

Do you know how hard I would have to work to get my name in the news if I quit my job?

Why in the hell do I even know the name of the commissioner of the US Food and Drug Administration?

Can we just get back to where I'm not really paying attention again? 4 years ago I didn't need to know the name of the Ambassador to Germany, or the Press Secretary for the First Lady...

I just want a government I don't even really have to think about too much.

Ivanka would be awesome. The FDA website would reroute to the Goop online store. Doctors would prescribe hoohah eggs. Haemotology would be replaced by magnetic bracelets. Scented candles would line the windowsills in every hospital. It would be a step up from the Covid response, in other words.

When you're  between two universes - - the real one and the trump one - - you get that deer in the headlights moment like this guy.   Why didn't I start that tell all book earlier?

Every single trump selection (including any family members) for any position should be expunged from ever working in any position for any government with in the US.  Without exception, they are all morons, liars and traitors.

I gave that a "smart" just to see if it would divide by zero and replace the universe with a better one.

...

Damn.

Sigh...

Does anyone remember the days when it required investigations and witnesses to come forward to prove that a president might not be giving us the full truth? Jesus, at this point, Trump could tell us the sky was blue, and we'd all run outside to check. Hopefully, we wouldn't all be in Guam at the time, might tip over, but there you go. This is a president whom you can't even trust when he's giving an official statement, vetted by his handlers...

Not thinking about government enough kinda got us into this mess.
