Have others seen this? I've got mixed feelings about it, since I like Dr. Murthy and the Trump administration is relieving him of his position for partisan reasons, but, for the time being, the acting US Surgeon General is a nurse
Vivek Murthy, MD, Replaced as Surgeon General

Quote from toomuchbaloney
he want well liked by the NRA
And that's quite an understatement (which may be how you intended it ...)
He was co-chair of a physicians' group supporting Obama prior to his election. His confirmation hearings were long and contentious, mostly over his position on guns and gun control, and he is a strong supporter of the ACA and strong regulation of e-cigarettes. The gun and tobacco lobbies, as well as conservatives in general, have been strongly opposed to him from his initial nomination. Now they can do something about it.
I'm sure Trump will find some quack to replace him soon, and also give Trent-Adams the boot. Maybe someone who shares his views that vaccines cause autism. (Maybe he could appoint his NY concierge physician who supposedly wrote the letter about his health during the campaign!
