Ronny Jackson’s alleged day drinking ‘might explain’ his bizarre press conference claiming Trump’s not obese: MSNBC

Published

on

Rear Adm. Ronny Jackson, President Donald Trump’s nominee to be Secretary of the Department of Veteran Affiars, may have partially confirmed some of the allegations against him, an Associated Press reporter suggested on Deadline: White House Tuesday.

Dr. Jackson has been accused of day drinking while on the job.

That fact may be related to his bizarre press conference boasting of Trump’s “genes” and physical fitness, MSNBC suggests.

In January, Dr. Jackson reported that Trump is six feet and three inches (75″) tall and weighs 239 lbs, one inch taller than on his 2012 driver’s license issued by the state of New York.

The Department of Health and Human Services’ Body Mass Index (BMI) lists somebody with such measurements “overweight.”

If Trump had been a single pound heavier or inch shorter, he would be considered medically obese.

Jackson even went out of his way to declare Trump as “not obese.”

“Honestly, anyone that says that I weighed less than I do would get any job he wanted,” host Nicolle Wallace joked.

“If the allegations are true, that suggested he was drinking on the job, that might explain that press conference,” AP White House correspondent Jonathan Lemire replied.

"And that is why the swamp is fighting back so viciously and violently," Trump argued.

Published

Outgoing White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders was blasted by a White House correspondent for her brazen lying from the White House podium.

"Sarah Sanders is a true believer. Conditioned by an upbringing rooted in Christian rhetoric that's impervious to reason, she views the world through a lens in which everything exists in absolutes," Playboy magazine White House correspondent Brian Karem wrote.

Her father, Mike Huckabee, is an Evangelical pastor who served as the Republican governor of Arkansas prior to unsuccessful presidential bids.

Nancy Pelosi clap

President Donald Trump's White House is committing obstruction of justice by claiming Hope Hicks has "immunity" from testifying before Congress about her time in the administration and even transition.
