Quote
The Trump administration is prohibiting officials at the nation’s top public health agency from using a list of seven words or phrases — including “fetus” and “transgender” — in any official documents being prepared for next year’s budget.


Policy analysts at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in Atlanta were told of the list of forbidden words at a meeting Thursday with senior CDC officials who oversee the budget, according to an analyst who took part in the 90-minute briefing. The forbidden words are “vulnerable,” “entitlement,” “diversity,” “transgender,” “fetus,” “evidence-based” and “science-based.”

In some instances, the analysts were given alternative phrases. Instead of “science-based” or ­“evidence-based,” the suggested phrase is “CDC bases its recommendations on science in consideration with community standards and wishes,” the person said. In other cases, no replacement words were immediately offered.

Hahah ... Colin Powell did the same thing as SecState.  He taught Hillary to do it.  Bipartisan cluster F.

But yes, I can expect full on ideological purity ... both WH and DNC (see recent reports on DNC to insulate itself from all ideas of Bernie-bros).

See ... ideology is bad ... but only the wrong ideology ... not the idea of being a maniac.

More sad evidence that the Trumps are trying to change reality.  I am not surprised given the short history of Trump's blitherings.

Apparently more than half of the US citizens voted Republican in 2016.
Mostly because of rather that than Hillary.

IMO the system allowed a nominee that they thought that there is absolutely no chance of being elected. Spectacularly backfired.

Why is this innate hate everything Republican? I do not think they are any worse than the other side.
They are all cut from the same cloth.

TDS* is strong here.

Actually, 3 million more voted for Clinton than trump.  The Electoral College fucked us.

Or so you are told.
But aside from all that, do you think Hillary would have been a better POTUS?
