VA Secretary David Shulkin has been fired. That’s no surprise. He was an Obama holdover, so it’s a surprise Trump kept him in the first place.
So who’s replacing him? A Heritage Foundation-approved ideologue who wants to privatize everything? Nope. The job is going to rear admiral Ronny Jackson, the president’s personal physician. He certainly looks the part, doesn’t he? And I guess he must have a terrific bedside manner. And lots of ribbons.
For Trump, I suppose this is the next best thing to hiring someone from the Fox News Medical A-Team.
