Azar falls in line un­der Trump again. Ex­perts say he's re­in­forc­ing a dark sig­nal sent to the FDA

In the lat­est in­ci­dent where Alex Azar has stead­fast­ly tak­en the side of Pres­i­dent Don­ald Trump over that of the FDA, the HHS sec­re­tary was non­com­mit­tal this morn­ing when asked if he sup­ports the at­tempt by his sub­or­di­nates at the FDA to strength­en guide­lines for a vac­cine EUA.

Ap­pear­ing on NBC’s To­day Show, the HHS sec­re­tary mud­died the wa­ters, stat­ing that the guid­ance that mat­ters is the one that is “ac­tu­al­ly al­ready out there.”
