Ronny Jackson appointed Trump’s chief medical advisor amid Pentagon investigation

(CNN) — The White House announced today that the President’s former physician, Rear Adm. Ronny Jackson, will serve as assistant to the President and chief medical advisor.

The appointment comes less than a year after Jackson withdrew from consideration as Trump’s nominee for secretary of Veterans Affairs over allegations that he was “abusive” toward colleagues, loosely handled prescription pain medications and was periodically intoxicated.

Jackson has denied all of the allegations leveled against him, calling them “completely false and fabricated.”

He remains under Pentagon investigation over allegations of improper behavior.

    The accusations against Jackson were completely false and fabricated—he would lose his license if the claims from an unreliable source—a partisan politician who would perjure himself in court—were true. Furthermore, since the lame-stream media are not concerned with facts and are really bad at journalism and typing, they violated Jackson’s right of due process under the Constitution. It is unfortunate that no one will go to jail for what amounts to a heinous laundry list of crimes, which were initiated because the doctor gave the President a clean bill of health.
