The shameful smearing of Dr. Ronny Jackson, the White House physician who was nominated by President Donald Trump to be Secretary of the Veterans Affairs Administration and has now withdrawn, is example #967 of why people hate Washington D.C. and were in a revolutionary mood at the 2016 ballot box.
After all, most of Jackson's White House service came during President Barack Obama's eight years.
Dr. Sean Conley, a Navy veteran, took the role of Trump's personal physician after Jackson was nominated. The fact that the White House still wants him in his old job - and that the Secret Service and US Navy will apparently allow him to remain this close to Trump - speaks to the quality of the anonymous and politically convenient allegations released by Democrats on the Senate Veterans Affairs Committee. They described Jackson as "toxic", "abusive" and "flat-out unethical" - while others said he'd engaged in reckless prescribing practices and multiple incidents of drunkenness.
But the president has claimed the allegations are slander, and claimed the Secret Service had not confirmed the allegations.
President Trump has since directed his sites at the person responsible for the rumors - Montana Senator John Tester. The President kept up the attack at a rally in Michigan Saturday night, saying, "I know things about Tester that I could say, too".
On the top of that list is likely former House Veterans Affairs committee chair Jeff Miller, it was reported last week. Over footage of Dede chatting with Tester, he says, "Jon Tester's work in Washington helped me get my life back".
Wenger has no regrets over rejecting Manchester United
Asked if De Gea's future at Manchester United is under discussion, the Portuguese said in a press conference: " No chance ". The two matches we played not at the Emirates but at (the) fantastic old stadium (were) unforgettable.
"Admiral Jackson is the kind of man that those in Montana would most respect and admire, and now, for no reason whatsoever, his reputation has been shattered".
Jackson has denied the allegations, labeling them "a distraction for this President and the important issue we must be addressing - how we give the best care to our nation's heroes".
"Tester should resign", Bongino said on "Fox & Friends". Johnny Isakson of Georgia, the committee's Republican chairman.
President Donald Trump has continued defending Jackson, with whom he formed a tight personal bond.
Last week, Jackson's confirmation hearing was postponed after current and former service members told members of Congress that he drank to excess while on duty, freely passed out prescription drugs and once banged on a female colleague's hotel-room door while intoxicated.
