Trump’s CDC Director Resigns After She is Found Buying Stocks in Tobacco Companies

We have been told the CDC Director has resigned after it was learned that CDC Director Brenda Fitzgerald bought tobacco and healthcare stocks while leading the nation’s public health agency, according to Politico, purchases that raise a red flag considering the CDC’s mission to curb smoking.

Her purchases include between $1,001 and $15,000 of Japan Tobacco, between $1,001 and $15,000 each in Merck & Co., Bayer and Humana, and between $15,001 and $50,000 in U.S. Food Holding Co.

Fitzgerald, a Trump appointee, was already under scrutiny for financial holdings that have prevented her from testifying before Congress on many issues, including the opioid crisis and cancer detection.

“This morning Secretary Azar accepted Dr. Brenda Fitzgerald’s resignation as Director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Dr. Fitzgerald owns certain complex financial interests that have imposed a broad recusal limiting her ability to complete all of her duties as the CDC Director. Due to the nature of these financial interests, Dr. Fitzgerald could not divest from them in a definitive time period.

“After advising Secretary Azar of both the status of the financial interests and the scope of her recusal, Dr. Fitzgerald tendered, and the Secretary accepted, her resignation. The Secretary thanks Dr. Brenda Fitzgerald for her service and wishes her the best in all her endeavors.”

Trump Proposes Budget Cuts to School Safety and Security Funding

Even after this last school shooting, Trump can’t do anything right. The Trump administration’s budget unveiled earlier this week contains millions of dollars worth of CUTS to programs designed to keep schools safe and combat mental illness.

As Politico pointed out, the fiscal year 2019 budget would slash $25 million from a program that promotes school safety and a $400 million grant program that schools can use to deal with bullying and mental health issues.

The budget would also stop funding the School Emergency Response to Violence program (Project SERV), which received $1 million in federal money last year. Department of Education spokesperson Liz Hill told Politico the fund still has $5.2 million in its bank account, however, which she said would likely be enough to cover its needs through 2019.

Former Obama administration official Scott Sargrad, who worked at the Department of Education, told Politico the programs and grants proposed to be cut “are the kinds of things that can help students, staff and teachers respond and recover” after a school shooting such as the one that occurred in Florida on Wednesday.

On the latest episode of “Celebrity Big Brother” cast member Brandi Glanville flat out asks Omarosa Manigault-Newman if she ever had relations with the Commander-In-Chief.

Omarosa answers, and despite her and Trump never hooking up, the controversial reality star said someone in the White House is.

Omarosa revealed that “there’s someone in the White House who’s sleeping with everybody”.

Brandi then claims that some of the women on “The Apprentice” hooked up with Trump behind the scenes. However, Omarosa assures us all that’s not her.
The longtime reality star turned former White House staffer has been spilling major tea on her brief experience as Director of Communications for the White House Office of Public Liaison. She recently told another cast member, Ross Matthews, that she was “haunted by tweets” sent out by President Trump. She also revealed that she would try to stop him but Ivanka, her husband Jared, and other members of his staff would keep her far away from him.

Omarosa told Matthews that things in the White House are really bad and she wasn’t successful at easing the president’s many worries. The 44-year-old reality star was reportedly fighting back tears while detailing her experience.
