Tome Merino removes name from nomnation as drug czarTom Marino, the Pennsylvania congressman who was President Trump's nominee for drug czar, withdrew Tuesday amid a flap over his role in setting opioid policy.

"Rep.Tom Marino has informed me that he is withdrawing his name from consideration as drug czar," Trump tweeted Tuesday morning. "Tom is a fine man and a great Congressman!"

The announcement came just a few days after 60 Minutes and The Washington Post reported that, as a U.S. House member from Pennsylvania, Marino was the key lawmaker behind legislation that made it virtually impossible for the Drug Enforcement Administration to freeze suspicious narcotics shipments from drug companies.

TVNL Comment:  Fine man?  Great Congressman?  Tell that to the families who have lost members to opioid addiction.  Is there a single day that Donald Trump doesn't show how utterly uninformed he is?  Just one day will do.
