HHS Directive Muzzles Federal Experts After Trump Blames Mass Shootings On Mental Illness, Not Guns

The Washington Post reports:

When President Trump targeted mental illness as the cause of the mass shootings in El Paso and Dayton that killed 31 people, federal health officials made sure no government experts might contradict him.

A Health and Human Services directive on Aug. 5 warned communication staffers not to post anything on social media related to mental health, violence and mass shootings without prior approval.

    • Hello ladyofthelakenc. It is not stupidity in this case, it is the deliberate attempt to keep the government from saying anything that disagrees with the “dear leader” ruler. It has come to the point where all branches of the government must now agree with the ruler or stay silent. This started back when a republican administration forbid the CDC from doing any studies on the harm of guns. They just forced most of the scientist of the USDA to quit by demanding they move to another part of the country in a very short time frame. Why did the government do this, because they scientist dared to release a study disproving a tRump talking point. So are government is now on a war to insist it all agrees with our fascist leader his most supreme tRump. We are on a very dangerous path right now. Hugs

      • We are living in a very dangerous time. As I watch Handmaid’s Tale-I read the book many years ago and thought that type of world would never be possible-I wonder if we are heading into Gilead.
