The War on Science is nothing new. It has been ongoing for decades. But, with the inauguration of Donald Trump, the War on Science and facts has been codified.

Trump is knowingly and actively incapacitating the US government by silencing scientists. This will invariably have a huge (yuge) impact on the US government’s ability to do absolutely anything.
