Dr. Ronny Jackson was straightforward with America on Tuesday.
He addressed the rumors of President Donald Trump's struggle to cognitively function as commander in chief.
Still, some people didn't accept Jackson's assessment of the president.
I'm surprised trump Dr. Ronny Jackson hasn't said that trump can basically fly to the moon and back in 10 seconds. He's literally saying that trump's health is absolute excellence, perfection, aside from putting him on a teenie tiny diet. Look at Obama, then look at trump. Nope!

Dr. Ronny Jackson said Donald Trump is in “excellent health” but we all know the truth...

Dr. Ronny Jackson claimed Trump is 6' 3" weighs 239 pounds.
For comparison, meet Latavius Murray, running back for the Minnesota Vikings.
He's 6' 3", 235 pounds.

Dr. Ronny Jackson is lying about everything from Trump's cognitive abilities to his weight. That's shameful. Keep in mind that Trump, as Commander in Chief, can order an active duty military doctor like Jackson to lie to the public. Time for a full scale investigation.

When David Axelrod, a former senior adviser to President Barack Obama, saw all the reaction, he decided to speak up and defend Jackson's character.
I knew Dr. Ronny Jackson in the White House. In my experience, he was very good guy and straight shooter.

He got a lot of flack for it, too.
With all due respect I work in healthcare and doctors cannot predict your health let alone for the duration of his presidency

With all due respect, Trump is NOT 239 lbs.

I agree. No way. The doc is not straight shooting now. These are ALL lies!

Jackson isn't just Trump's physician, though; he's been the White House doctor since 2013. So Axelrod is just speaking from experience here.
