Because he is a medical doctor, his approach is clinical. I found his TikTok helpful. (Image via TikTok)
TIKTOK: I was hoping, as I am sure you were, that monkeypox would fizzle out quickly. On the contrary, it's still on the rise, and it appears to be spreading especially among gay men. It's not a gay disease. (What is?) But since it spread via close personal contact, Pride is going to be an extra-worrisome time for people. ThatGayDoctor on TikTok has helpfully posted about getting the virus. He shows how it looks — not as horrifying as I dreamed — and calmly explains how it feels and what to expect.

HUFF POST: The January 6 Committee has emails between SCOTUS Justice Thomas's wife Ginni and Trump's lawyer John Eastman. How can John Roberts not take a stand?
UNSAFE: Before you click, know it is a link to — GULP — Ann Coulter's Substack. But the newsworthy quality is she trashes Dinesh D'Souza's 2000 Mules as stupid, agrees that the January 6 Committee has proved that Trump committed fraud and labels Trump a douche. The bad news is Ann Coulter is now to the left of the mainstream GOP.
TWITTER: Though Pence is back to talking up the Trump-Pence team, here, he is seen cowering in resignation just before being evacuated so his constituents couldn't lynch him:
