    It's not a really big deal in the context of how twisted the current American government is, and in fact the Surgeon Gen. has little official power. The main point is that his firing is yet another example of the Trump/Bannon 'purge'. Dr. Murthy was on thin ice because he was a) born in the UK and b) brown. It would be odd to attack H-1B visas for 'foreign experts' and have one such heading up a central agency, right?

    And of course, in-line with surrounding himself with lowly minions, Trump & Co. appoint a mere nurse as the Surgeon-General, and you can just bet that she will do whatever she is told to do all...the...time. Bark lassie.

    Did/do you worry that "Trump is in Putin's pocket"?

    That is exactly why that rule exists... To ensure that only those dedicated to the ideals of America, and holding American values/beliefs, can hold the position. It's a stop gate on handing governmental power to a possible foreign nation.

    It doesnt matter what the details are.

    IF Trump did it the Left cannot tolerate it as they see it as heinous, calloused, demeaning, racist, etc, etc.

    For the Left it is always partisan verdict first, evidence and reason last.

Thats especially true for muslims where even second and third generation muslims hate the West and the USA Xanzia .

    Trump is not a friend of color, yes, but if he is going to work on increasing professional jobs for Americans, the H-1B people gotta go home.
