Now the FDA is suspending food inspections; thanks, Trump!

Up until now, I’ve been exaggerating when I’ve said Donald Trump makes me want to vomit. Hey, we might get the real deal soon enough.

From The Washington Post:

The furloughing of hundreds of Food and Drug Administration inspectors has sharply reduced inspections of the nation’s food supply — one of many repercussions of the partial government shutdown that make Americans potentially less safe.

The agency, which oversees 80 percent of the food supply, has suspended all routine inspections of domestic food-processing facilities, FDA Commissioner Scott Gottlieb said in an interview. He said he’s working on a plan to bring back inspectors as early as next week to resume inspections of high-risk facilities, which handle foods such as soft cheese or seafood, or have a history of problems.

“We are doing what we can to mitigate any risk to consumers through the shutdown,” Gottlieb said.

Remember that weird powdery stuff the janitor used to throw on the floor when kids puked in grade school? Anyone? Maybe they need to load a metric shit-ton of that stuff into a few of our invisible planes and dump it on the White House.
