Democrat Maryland legislator and candidate for U.S. Congress Aruna Miller sees a science emergency in the Trump administration:
In its 41-year-old history the White House's Office of Science and Technology Policy has never gone this long without a leader or official mandate. Without science, it's fiction, right .@314action? Trump's science office is a ghost town https://t.co/4XxQ9M5VYn

And yet the nation has survived so far?
Apparently the Party of Science (TM) thinks that science only exists when a bureaucrat sits around sending emails. https://t.co/dKrQSe7hKR

Can't do science without a science tsar collecting a government paycheck, apparently https://t.co/stSMmX5YNK

So far, “science” is still science.
Well, I haven't been able to boil water since we can't science anymore. https://t.co/rkQNI8ef0x

Which article of the Constitution covers science?

WHY is this an important appointment? Science certainly didn't stop simply nobody has been appointed to an office that I would seriously question as being necessary in the first place. FEAR NOT, Science is NOT dead. GROW UP.

DECODED: How can we conflate science with politics without a federally funded group that has impressive titles? https://t.co/V46rRD3NaL

Which goes to show you, the White House's Office of Science & Technology is as much of a meaningless symbol as it sounds. https://t.co/AZkx8KkA8Q

Miller made a point, but just not the one she intended.
