What THEY have named the "Trump Effect"?

Yes, they came up with that. Very clever of them.

Everything he touches dies. Don't get involved with him, you're not special, you won't make it out unscathed and you can't get enough out of him to make it worth it.

"This summer, Lacey Adams was diagnosed with a third recurrence of melanoma"

Oh, that's tragic. Did they have to mortgage one of their properties?

It's not fair, I'll grant them that. However, I think you have to have extremely low standards to have accepted a job in that circus.

Going forward, everyone could learn a lesson from these wannabe dictator candidates: it's not about making a difference. They want to burn it down and they'll burn you with it. You are not going to influence a GD thing with those people.

Funny though, half the population knew that beforehand and 99% of the other other half really still hasn't caught on.

Sorry, doc, but the MAGA will always be mad at you for not putting Ivermectin into toothpaste and the other side of the coin will be mad you didn't do more to protect people, pushing for more masking and rebutting the insanity coming out of the WH.

Other surgeons general, he feels, have been less intensely identified with the president who appointed them, permitting them to glide into a life of prestigious and sometimes lucrative opportunities, unencumbered by partisan politics.

They felt it when he was exploring jobs in academia, where he would receive polite rejections from university officials who worried that someone who served in the administration of the former president would be badly received by their left-leaning student bodies

Wow, that will feed into Trump and every other republicans' victim complex nicely.

What's unfair about it? He willingly served in the regime of a fascist wannabe dictator and now he's facing the consequence of no one being willing to employ someone with such obviously poor decision-making skills.

Seems perfectly fair to me. He can get a job at Walmart or Chick-Fil-A.

Oh no, the Surgeon General for an administration that utterly botched the largest public health emergency of the century thus far is tainted by his association with the administration that utterly blew a most severe public health emergency of the millennium thus far and he expects us to feel bad for him not being able to shake off that stench of failure and moral cowardice?

If TFG or anyone within his sphere of influence appointed you, you were within his sphere of influence. You contributed to a worse world. If your price to pay is not having more opportunity, you got off lucky and deserve far worse.

If your spouse chose you, they also deserve any misfortune as well.

How what?  How did he fail?  Are you seriously asking how the Surgeon General of the United States failed the american people during the pandemic given the utterly shambolic handling of said pandemic in 2020?  Is your memory that poor?

What is really infuriating, is that Alex Jones still gets to take home $50,000 a month to cover his "most basic living expenses."  He's still having to fork over millions of dollars a year for the rest of his life, but the courts left him with that amount, and he is constantly on the radio crying about how he doesn't have enough to get by on, and needs people to send him money.

I think he gets that much money because he spends a fortune on private security guards that he doesn't really need as an alpha male living in Texas, but for some reason lives his life as if he is in a constant state of fear and anxiety about some kind of inability to protect himself that you normally only see in bed wetters.

He supported and backed the president who denied covid. I feel for his wife. It should have been him.

I want to believe the whole thing about bad things happening due to bad decisions but then how do you explain the Kardashians?
 
2022-11-26 10:07:14 AM  
okay. Let's set aside the Trump part and discuss this:

"Even as Adams was seeking to define the next chapter of his life, he was engaged in an almost constant battle on social media. His frequent tweets about everything from his personal life to public health issues have invariably drawn attacks from both the right and the left. Rather than ignore his critics, he has often punched back, engaging in Twitter spats that stretch for days.
...
"I get mad at him for being addicted to Twitter," Lacey said."


Hey Doc, how about you put the phone down and get off social media. I can see why not many academic places want to hire you.

next up:

"The couple started to worry about how they would support their three children, especially since Lacey does not work outside the home."

Sounds like Lacey needs to get a job, unless she works from inside the home?

Lacey saw it coming. She said she "hated Trump" and did not want her husband to leave his comfortable life in Indiana, ... Lacey, 46, worried about a lasting "stigma" but her husband talked her into supporting their move by saying he thought he could make a bigger difference inside the administration than outside it, especially when it came to his efforts to combat opioid addiction.

If they can't afford medical care, it's simply because they have made poor decisions in life.

Keep in mind, under Pence a needle exchange program was discontinued which allowed an AIDS crisis to pop up in rural Scottsboro IN.

So he was already terrible before he went to work for Trump.
