Ronny Jackson the latest victim of Morning Joe slander

Ronny Jackson the latest victim of Morning Joe slander

As a regular viewer of MSNBC’s Morning Joe (along with all the other news outlets), I have watched Mika Brzezinski and Joe Scarborough sink deeper and deeper into the scum at the bottom of the swamp. That was apparent in their unprofessional and disgraceful attack on the White House medical director, Rear Admiral Ronny Jackson, who Trump has nominated to head the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA). They were by far not alone in their character assassination – but by far the worst. Of course, the panel of bobble-head panelists piled on in the ad hominem attack on Jackson. Nothing new there.

To understand their craven disregard for truth and fairness, you have to know that Jackson has served three presidents with distinction and with excellent medical treatment. He is in the White House purely for medical reasons – totally non-political. He is in that position because he is not only one of the most outstanding doctors in America, but because of his broader ability to manage a team of outstanding medical specialists. He is what is considered a super doctor – just the kind you would appoint to an important administrative position. As an admiral, Jackson has ample experience with the members of the military and their needs.

Prior to the Trump administration, Jackson was generally heralded as an outstanding person.  So, what changed?

Jackson had the misfortune of having to report to the world – and especially to the Trump hating media – that the president was in outstanding physical and medical condition. His report was at a time that the media was trying to sell the concocted narrative that Trump was suffering mental problems. When the media offers up a medical diagnosis, God forbid that a real doctor, who has actually examined Trump, should have a different opinion. They started to inaccurately and dishonestly report that Jackson was a political crony of the president. They said his report was filled with lies. In one case, a panelist even claimed that Jackson gave the glowing report to get the VA job.

Now that Trump has nominated Jackson to head the VA – which is largely a medical service – the Trump-hating left is in a state of apoplexy. They argue that Jackson is totally unqualified to run the agency since he has never had any sort of experience in managing such a large bureaucracy. Without a scintilla of evidence, the television talking heads (you select the word) state, suggest, intimate, conjecture and/or hypothecate that Jackson could not possibly be capable of leading the VA.

It was not long ago, however, that those same media folks had tingles up their legs at the thought of a VERY inexperienced former neighborhood organizer named Barack Obama running THE ENTIRE NATION! Their hypocrisy has no bounds.

    FIRE JOE BLOW! When are we going to hold the media responsible for their lies? They keep hiding behind the “freedom of the press” thing. However when they report or insinuate things, or.claim they heard from a reliable source they need to produce proof or they could just keep putting their biased lies out there.

    Not a huge Joe fan but you missed the point. While Jackson may be a good Doctor does not mean he is qualified to direct a major government department like th VA. EXAMPLE Ben Carson.
    The Trump administration cannot get anyone who has held positions of responsibility to serve. So he goes to his Doctor? Wake up. You’ve got a real threat to Democracy in the White House and no matter how much you want him to be great he’s still the bankrupt Trump.

    . Ronny Jackson is a yes man. He disgraced my professional by stating that a man who is obese, doesn’t exercise, an unhealthy eater take cholesterol medicine & probably other medication is healthy.
