MSNBC Morning Joe co-host Joe Scarborough ripped White House physician Rear Adm. Dr. Ronny Jackson on Thursday after he issued a positive report on President Trump’s health this week.
“The doctor has certainly taken on the lifeform of other life forms inside the Trump White House,” Scarborough said. “He sounded like a sycophant; he didn’t sound like a doctor.”
A sycophant who has been with the White House medical unit since 2006 and was named physician to the president in 2013 by Barack Obama.
Jackson said the president was in overall excellent health, but that Trump was trying to lose weight and eat better.
Scarborough proceeded to float the idea that Jackson was lying about the president’s health.
“I’m sure this guy is a great guy, great physician, blah, blah, blah. He shouldn’t have sounded so Trumpian, first of all, and secondly, he works in a White House where just about everybody who makes public statements lie.”
But apparently, that didn’t mean he was questioning Jackson’s integrity.
“Are we questioning his integrity? No, we’re not. I’m just questioning his motivations. I mean maybe he likes eating at the White House mess. I don’t know,” Scarborough said. “But his own words are not the words of a physician; they’re the words of a political hack.”
