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.

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.

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.

PsyLord: 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.


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.

King Something: 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.

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.

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.

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.

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