Africa is ground zero for the world’s HIV epidemic. Half the people in the world living with HIV, almost 20 million, live there. Two years ago, according to the HIV and AIDS information and education resource Avert, 420,000 people died of AIDS-related illnesses in the region in 2016. These are the kids Washington used as bait, and money that he told donors was going to fund medical treatment for African kids with HIV instead paid for his girlfriend to get some work done. Disgusting.
