Trump VA nominee Ronny ‘Candy Man’ Jackson denies allegation he wrecked a government vehicle after drinking

Published

Troubling new details are emerging about Dr. Ronny ‘Candy Man’ Jackson, the president’s personal physician who was nominated to join Trump’s cabinet by leading the Veterans Affairs department.

The physician was on the radar after he gave a bonkers press conference in which he said that Trump could live to be 200 years old.

The allegations mainly concern his loose control of prescription medicine. Jackson allegedly handed out drugs like the sedative Ambien and the wake-up drug Provigil to those who asked on Air Force One without doing a proper intake exam, kept incomplete records, and had a personal stash of controlled substances, according to the report. He prescribed himself medicine before being busted, the report said.

Jackson was described by people in his department as “the most unethical person I have ever worked with,” “volatile,” and “vindictive.” He was a kiss-up who would kick those under him, the report said.

Jackson also drank while responsible for the president’s health and at least once was passed out drunk in his hotel when called to serve.

He also allegedly crashed a car after getting drunk at a Secret Service going away party. He has denied this allegation.

In a column for the Atlantic, longtime political observer Peter Nicholas stated that Donald Trump is showing all the signs of a scared man as massive protests have broken out across the country over the murder of George Floyd at the hands of four former Minneapolis cops -- and angry Americans are taking their case all the way up to the White House gates.

As Nicholas wrote, "Presidents live within a protective cocoon built and continually fortified for one purpose: keeping them alive. But inside the White House compound these days, Donald Trump seems rattled by what’s transpiring outside the windows of his historic residence."

In an interview with MSNBC's Molly Hunter, a Black Londoner explained why he turned out for a protest near Trafalgar Square in support of Americans who have hit the streets in the U.S. over the murder of George Floyd by four former Minneapolis police officers.

According to the man -- identified as Daniel and who was wearing a COVID-19 mask and a New York Yankees hat -- his brother was also murdered by police and the cops walked free.

"You've been marching all day," Hunter began. "Look, I have two questions for you: what was it like watching the U.S. this week from London? Does it resonate?

Denver cops busted for doing drive-by shootings of anti-police brutality protesters

In a video posted to Twitter, a young Denver man protesting the killing of George Floyd at the hands of four former Minnesota police officers, found himself on the receiving end of an attack by police himself as he filmed them riding on the side of a truck -- only to have his phone hit by a fired police projectile while still in his hand.

According to Rachelle D'nae, a staff writer at Slate, her brother went to the Denver protest and was filming the officers when the incident occurred.

"My older brother went to a protest in Denver last night. as the police were leaving, one of them shot him with a pepper pellet that smashed the back of his phone and exploded in his face. they were ~30 feet from each other and it looks like the officer aimed directly at his face," she wrote before adding in a second tweet, "when my brother told me he was going I prepared for the worst. I made sure he had my number memorized so I could bail him out if I needed to and I sat up until he made it home, trying not to cry as he told me he had been tear-gassed."
