  1. So Trump's new Surgeon General is

    • A nurse
    • A military vet
    • A black female
    • Has a Ph.D.
    • Worked in nurse research

    Very interesting. Thoughts?

    Well, she's not exactly the "new surgeon general" -- she's the acting surgeon general because Trump has fired the actual surgeon general for partisan reasons and she was the second in command in the department. I'm sure Trump will appoint a new physician SG soon, and may well let her go, also, since she was the assistant SG under Obama.

    I shudder to think who Trump might appoint as SG -- he's probably already got people busily searching for a physician who agrees with him that vaccines cause autism ...

    Lmao he's very biased. I took a stats class where we had to learn how to recognize research and statistical methods used in evaluating data like alpha levels and what not. Being biased in research is bad research. Why is a self-meditating underacheiver I will never know.
