Dr. Ronny Jackson to leave position at White House

Dr. Jackson will be moving to Mingo, W.V. and he will
open up a "pain clinic" there by the 15 of June. (some people say)


https://www.nytimes.com/2018/04/25/opinion/trumps-best-people-are-the-worst.html

Trump’s ‘Best People’ Are the Worst

At this point you have to ask: Just what do job postings for the Trump administration look like? Surely they must stipulate that relevant experience isn’t a plus, but that a flexible notion of ethics is. They must demand references who can recount specific instances of demonstrated incompetence. How else to explain the sheer number of poorly prepared or careless or sticky-fingered officials crammed into this careening clown-car of an administration?

Consider the Trump appointees who have been in the news lately.

snip

Remember when Mr. Trump said he would hire the “best people”? Of course, he said Mexico would pay for his border wall, too.

2. His career is done, that's for sure. I tend to believe the bulk of the accusations, but

damn I'd hate to have him destroyed (other than for the obvious reason he was not qualified for VA) if by chance they were not accurate.

Yet another Trump casualty (or a act of karma)--guess we'll eventually see which--maybe

4. He could have saved his career by not withdrawing from his nomination hearing

and instead facing down his accusers. I have to believe that the allegations are true because he chose to run from it instead. Also, the only logical reason I can think of for resigning his current position is that the allegations that have surfaced are true. I think these are the reasonable conclusions based on the facts that we do know, which is that he is running from the questions.

6. I think this is all a cover for Trumps drug abuse

 

I still think Trump is behind the "Candyman" nickname...

Passing out pills on flights? What flights? With who?

Who does the President's doctor fly with?

And what about this from a few months ago...? Weird question, right? But - on the record!

http://freebeacon.com/politics/white-house-reporter-asks-donald-trump-addicted-drugs/

During a press briefing with White House physician Ronny Jackson on Tuesday, one member of the White House press corps asked if President Donald Trump was addicted to drugs.

"You said he doesn't drink and he doesn't smoke and other than the diet issue—did you address drug addiction?" the reporter asked.

"Drug addiction?" Jackson replied with a laugh.

"Any other drugs?" she asked.

"Yeah, no, no, he has no drug addiction," Jackson said.


So according THIS GUY - he has no drug addiction...????

Yeah - Riiiiiiiiiight!!!

Congress should demand Trump take another physical with an Doctor of their choice!!!

your article (opinion column says nothing of the kind)

have to worry re: the hidden agendas that might lead to potential misinformation disseminated.... Be discerning... 'tis the way of the current world, it seems.

A lot of attempts to manipulate now... Post fake news as a "joke" and then deride anyone who falls for it. satire is fine, but it ought to be labeled as such.

28. He needs treatment ASAP

If the allegations against Dr./Adm. Jackson are true, then he needs either to check into a substance abuse treatment program on his own, or face an intervention by his loved ones, before he either kills himself or someone else.

It's typical of people dependent on, or abusing drugs, including alcohol, to deny they have a problem because they don't see their drinking and/or drug use as a problem. They have to be dragged into treatment most of the time, and that's when they're faced with losing their careers, families, or both. Question is, has he hit rock bottom yet?

32. A "pain clinic"? In West Virginia? I think I feel a song coming on . . .

Who can take the Darvon?
Roll it out the door?
Get paid by the junkies every time they come for more?
The Candyman!
Oh, the Candyman can!
The Candyman can, 'cause he's in the for the bucks to make the world feel good!

Who can read a scale?
Say "239"?
Tell the Orange Asshole that his health is super-fine?
The Candyman!
Oh, the Candyman can!
The Candyman can, 'cause he likes the taste of ass to make himself look good!
