Amanda Marcotte puzzles it out HEY DUMMIES HE DOESN'T WANT YOU TO GET TESTS AND HE HASN'T FROM THE BEGINNING. I have said this, every day, too, also. (Salon)
Er, while we are on tests, Health and Human Services Secretary Alex Azar does not seem to have covered himself in glory. Of course, none of them did, but man, really not him. #bestpeople (Wall Street Journal)
