Trump Admin Prohibiting CDC From Using Words 'Transgender,' 'Fetus' And 'Diversity'

If you banned seven words from Trumps vocabulary hed be mute

Donald Trump's organization has supposedly banned the Center for Disease Control from utilizing seven words and expressions, including "science-based" and "transgender", in archives it is dealing with for one year from now's financial plan.

In other words, the agency charged with protecting Americans from epidemics and safeguarding the health of the public must now formally avoid saying anything even slightly politically inconvenient to Republicans if it wants funding.

The Trump administration has banned the agency from using seven specific words.

The words are: transgender, diversity, abortion, fetus, vulnerable, entitlement, evidence-based, and science-based - you know, the kind of terms authoritarians tend to embrace wholeheartedly. Instead of "science-based", or "evidence-based", The Post reported, "the suggested phrase is 'CDC bases its recommendations on science in consideration with community standards and wishes'".

According to an unnamed CDC analyst in the Post's write-up, the list of the prohibited words was unveiled at the agency's headquarters in Atlanta during a Thursday meeting that lasted 90 minutes.

The decision to prevent certain words from being mentioned follows a pattern of behavior that has been growing since Trump took office, in which web pages referencing such topics as diverse (whoops, is that banned?) as climate change and LGBT issues have been removed from government websites, signaling supporters that the President has little time for such issues.

Critics of the administration, including Rep. Kamala Harris (D-Calif.), slammed the move and accused the White House of making an "authoritarian" attempt to politicize the CDC and "silence" the work of scientists.

"They are actually going to kill Americans if they do not stop".

Other CDC officials confirmed the existence of a list of forbidden words.

"It was very much, 'Are you serious?"

The analyst expects growing backlash as news of the word ban spreads at the CDC.

By the way, the CDC has a budget of about $7 billion and more than 12,000 employees, working on everything from food and water safety to heart disease to infectious disease outbreak prevention.

During the meeting, Kelly reportedly noted that three of the words - "vulnerable", "entitlement" and "diversity" - were flagged in the agency's budget drafts.
