Presidents Trump and Obama Show Their True Colors: One Stands Up for WH Doctor After Being Slandered – The Other Remains Silent

Guest post by Joe Hoft

Democrat Senator Jon Tester slandered and lied about President Trump’s nominee to take over the VA, Admiral Dr. Ron Jackson. Presidents Trump and Obama showed their true colors in response. One stood up for the man who was slandered, the other remained silent.

Admiral and Dr. Ron Jackson was nominated by President Trump to be the new head of the VA. Dr. Jackson was Presidents Obama and Trump’s personal doctor. He worked diligently for both. He was slandered by Democrat Senator Jon Tester this past week with made up accusations of being drunk on the job and other seedy activities while serving as the White House doctor.

CNN reported earlier this week, on anonymous sourcing, that during an overseas trip in 2015 Jackson got drunk and belligerently banged on a female colleague’s hotel door. CNN also reported the Secret Service stopped Jackson and that agents were worried he might wake up President Obama.

Turns out, the Secret Service has no record of the incident (bolding is mine).

President Obama has remained totally silent regarding the false accusations showing his true colors of putting politics and lies before the American people. One pundit on Twitter put it succinctly: “The best insight into Obama’s petty character is the fact that Dr. Ronny Jackson cared for the Obama family for eight years and received rave reviews, but when his name was smeared by Dems, Obama was dead silent.”

However the current President understands and stands up for the people who serve him honorably. President Trump tweeted today: “Allegations made by Senator Jon Tester against Admiral/Doctor Ron Jackson are proving false. The Secret Service is unable to confirm (in fact they deny) any of the phony Democrat charges which have absolutely devastated the wonderful Jackson family. Tester should resign. The….”

President Trump’s tweet continued: “….great people of Montana will not stand for this kind of slander when talking of a great human being. Admiral Jackson is the kind of man that those in Montana would most respect and admire, and now, for no reason whatsoever, his reputation has been shattered. Not fair, Tester!”

Later, President Trump tweeted: “Secret Service has just informed me that Senator Jon Tester’s statements on Admiral Jackson are not true. There were no such findings. A horrible thing that we in D.C. must live with, just like phony Russian Collusion. Tester should lose race in Montana. Very dishonest and sick!”

This latest episode shows Presidents Obama and Trump are polar opposites. One is a politician who acts based on political consequences with no regard for the people he thinks serve him. The other is an honorable man who acts based on what is right and sees his role as serving the people. The latter always trumps the first.
