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

Published

on

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.

Michael Moore predicts Mick Mulvaney will get into Heaven after confessing Trump’s quid pro quo

Academy Award-winning filmmaker Michael Moore predicted acting White House Chief of Staff Mick Mulvaney will ascend to Heaven in the afterlife during a Friday interview on MSNBC's "The Beat" with Ari Melber.

The host played a clip of Mulvaney admitting Trump's quid pro quo while seeking foreign election assistance from Ukraine.

"This man obviously is going to be admitted into Heaven," Moore said. "You know, he told the truth."

"If there was a movie version of this, somebody stuck him with a needle just before he walked out onto the stage there, a truth serum needle, and he just went on and on saying, 'Yeah, that’s what we do. Yeah, of course.' Essentially admitting there is a quid pro quo. In fact, there are many quid pro quos."

Trump campaign has 12-person ‘War Room’ toiling to fight the impeachment inquiry: report

Published

on

While the White House has bragged about refusing to start a "war room" to deal with the impeachment inquiry into President Donald Trump's administration, his campaign is footing the bill for a 12-person operation, the LA Times reported Friday.

“Some of you have criticized us for not having a war room — OK? — which we don’t by the way,” acting Chief of Staff Mick Mulvaney told reporters.

“You don’t have a war room when you haven’t done anything wrong," he added.

By that logic, Trump's 2020 re-election campaign may fear the president did something wrong.

Published

President Donald Trump received harsh criticism from a former top Middle East advisor for the ethnic cleansing campaign Turkey is waging against the Kurds in Syria.

MSNBC's Chuck Todd interviewed Brett McGurk, the former special presidential envoy for the Global Coalition to Counter ISIL.

"The truth of the matter is when President Trump announced to the world last December that we were leaving Syria and he arbitrarily cut our force reportedly in half, which is already a small force, we lost all of our leverage and influence," McGurk argued. "And he really threw it out the window on this call on October 6th."
