You know, during the early days of the HIV pandemic, politicians passed laws to put gay men in prison for not taking precautions that science said were unnecessary.

Now we have President Trump behaving recklessly in a way that certainly is putting his staff in danger.

It’s mind boggling.

And Republican leadership is so in thrall that almost nobody in his party is calling him out.

We live in insane times.
