Hey, at least we can still take comfort in the fact that he’s “mad as hell”:

Gee, that’s nice.

Don’t worry: The VA will totally get to the bottom of this.

Give them some time.

That’s comforting. Just don’t ask him what’s going on:

Ugh.

Being full of it tends to have that effect on you. Here’s something he can tell you — as long as you don’t ask about specifics:

Heckuva job, Mr. Secretary.

Oh yeah. It’s fantastic.
