Nomination Accusations

The White House is standing firm behind President Trump's embattled choice to take over as Secretary of Veterans Affairs.

A scathing Congressional report has come out, blasting President Trump’s choice to head the Department of Veterans Affairs. However, White House doctor Ronny Jackson says he is still moving forward with his nomination. Multiple sources said Jackson’s nickname was “Candyman” because he would provide prescriptions with no paperwork. Some of the accusations against him include Jackson allegedly being unreachable when needed because he was passed out drunk in his hotel room, and once got drunk at a going away party and wrecked a government vehicle. White House officials point to Jackson’s glowing reviews, including praise from President Obama in 2016.
