It is unconscionable that our so-called-president has put the most incompetent and destructive people in charge of every government department and office. I just read an excellent article in Vanity Fair (December 2017) "Made in the U.S.D.A" by Michael Lewis. The Department of Agriculture has one of the largest budgets of all the government departments and oversees a vast variety of programs including everything from critical scientific research to school lunches; it is now being run by an anti-science imbecile who may be putting the very health and welfare of Americans in danger. Can we bring Obama back?
