29. You beat me to it, I totally agree that this is a set-up.

He's mad at Pence, thinks he's not sufficiently servile and has maybe been talking to others behind his back & wants his job so is setting him up to be fired for incompetence if this explodes.

6. wouldn't that be Pence's first response, ever, about anything?

we watched Edward Scissorhands last night. That ghostly white face....was thinking Pence is what happens when Edward becomes an old man.

I still don't believe Pence is alive.

It's like the blind leading the blind. I feel ever so relieved to know that yet another incompetent Trump sycophant is in charge of a serious public health epidemic.

12. Apparently Azar is out after letting us all know that the Trump administration has no plans to make

Trump explained the AZAR had other things on his plate--like reducing drug prices. etc etc

Apparently Azar is out after letting us all know that the Trump administration has no plans to make the vaccine affordable for everyone.

Now Mike Pence, who thinks prayer is healthcare science, is in charge. Yes, the Pence who enabled state’s largest HIV outbreak as Gov.

Mike Pence's Defining Moment As Governor? Enabling An HIV Outbreak


Here's what to do if you want to create a public health crisis.

Gov. Mike Pence's (R) public health record in his home state of Indiana left a lot to be desired.

With the exception of a brief detour into Indiana Gov. Mike Pence’s (R) anti-abortion beliefs during the vice presidential debate on Oct. 4, the night centered around foreign policy, not public health.

It’s a shame, since lackluster public health efforts are what led to the defining moment of Pence’s one-term Indiana governorship: a massive HIV outbreak spurred by public health funding cuts and Pence’s moralistic stance against needle exchanges.

A timeline of the HIV outbreak, the worst in state history, reads like a roadmap of what to do if you want to create a public health crisis.
Pence slashed state health spending.

Pence first laid the groundwork for Indiana’s HIV outbreak as a congressman back in 2011, when the House passed his amendment to defund Planned Parenthood. Then in 2013, Pence’s first year as governor of Indiana, Scott County’s one Planned Parenthood closed in the wake of public health spending cuts. Since that particular Planned Parenthood was also the county’s only HIV testing center, there was no longer a place for the county’s 24,000 residents to get tested.......................................
