Optics at V.A.March 20, 2018 | :

The VA OIG is apparently investigating Secretary David Shulkin’s misuse of his staff by asking one to help him shop at Home Depot and Donald Trump is pissed.
The optics are bad, and I am sure he is pissed about compromising to keep Shulkin instead of going with a pick of his own to lead the agency. But in his anger, Trump is looking at switching out Shulkin for Rick Perry, the Texas governor who was indicted for abuse of authority in 2014.
