The phrase "He Kills Me" is sometimes used to refer to someone who makes another person or group laugh. In this instance, however, the phrase is used in its literal meaning of killing someone. The Reagan Administration was criticized for failing to address the AIDS epidemic that had been killing many people. In addition, the smirk that Reagan has in this photo evokes the idea that Reagan knew there was an AIDS epidemic, but consciously decided to ignore it, which resulted in the death of many people in the LGBT community. The image to the left of Reagan reminds me of an eye that is watching over everyone and the decisions they make.
