Trump lashes out at Dem Jon Tester for smearing Dr. Ronny Jackson
“Secret Service has just informed me that Senator Jon Tester’s statements on Admiral Jackson are not true”
Montana Democrat Jon Tester led the smear campaign against Admiral Ronny Jackson, the physician Trump wanted to take over at the VA. Now Trump is pushing back in Jackson’s defense, saying Tester should resign.
Trump calls on Democratic senator to resign after VA pick drops out
U.S. President Donald Trump said on Saturday that the top-ranking Democrat on the Senate Veteran’s Affairs committee should resign after the President’s pick to lead the Veterans Affairs department withdrew from consideration amid numerous allegations.
On Thursday, Trump’s physician Ronny Jackson withdrew from consideration to head the department after allegations that he had been lax with prescription drugs and drank alcohol on the job.
Trump had already singled out Senator Jon Tester, the top-ranking Democrat on the Senate Veterans’ Affairs committee, who is up for re-election in November in Montana.
“Allegations made by Senator Jon Tester against Admiral/Doctor Ron Jackson are proving false… Tester should resign,” Trump tweeted on Saturday.
“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!,” Trump added…
“Secret Service has just informed me that Senator Jon Tester’s statements on Admiral Jackson are not true,” Trump tweeted. “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!”
Here are Trump’s tweets:
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…..

….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!

Have you noticed that no one had a problem with Admiral Jackson until Trump wanted him for something? Trump made that point at the White House this week:
Trump went after Tester again during a rally in Michigan this weekend. Bloomberg reports:
Trump Says He Could Sink Jon Tester by Saying Things About Him
President Donald Trump continued to lash out against Senator Jon Tester for the Montana Democrat’s role in ending the nomination of White House physician Ronny Jackson to be Secretary of Veterans Affairs.
Jackson on Thursday withdrew from consideration to run the sprawling Veterans Affairs department a day after Tester released a document with a long list of alleged transgressions.
“I know things about Tester that I could say too,” Trump said Saturday night at a campaign-style rally in Washington, Michigan. “And if I said ’em, he’d never be elected again.”
That’s what Professor Glenn Reynolds of Instapundit calls punching back twice as hard.

According to an article at PJMedia, Rep. Mo Brooks (R-AL) :told a local radio show that one factor in the record number of retirements of GOP members may be fears of assassination.”
Don’t get me wrong, I’d rather not anybody be shot, even from the other side. However, it’s okay for these guys to send others off to harms way. So, now, that they might be threatened, they’re going to throw in the towel.
Has it ever occurred to them they if they aligned more with President Trump he just might be more in their corner to help them in their battles?! He’s showing the way to fight back.
WHoops! Forgot the link to the article: https://pjmedia.com/trending/rep-brooks-congressmen-retiring-because-of-assassination-threats/
Well, in all fairness, some of them HAVE been shot at, notably Steve Scalise.
And, to his credit, he is not one of them throwin’ in the towel.
How much will really be covered in the propaganda wing of the DNC? Democrats can lie with impunity, and rarely do they get blow black. Just like Reid lying about Romney, he got his way of calling Romney a crook and then just shrugged when it came out it was pure fabrication.
They have no regard for honor. If they aren’t engaged in criminal or unethical behavior, they are busying defending it and covering it up.
It is reasons like his above actions which is why Comey forced the investigation, Sessions recused himself, and Mueller are working to perform a coup against Trump. He gives the swamp rats a response that hits hard, unlike past GOPe personnel who say Golly Gee, that wasn’t nice.
These creeps need to have their careers and reputations ruined, as they certainly don’t care if they ruin others in their crusade against Trump.
Being a Democrat means never having go say sorry.
When the cost of a character assassination becomes high enough, such smears will cease. Senator Tester did this because 1) he wanted to 2) his party needed him to 3) he’d earn some credit with the DNC and progressive crowd there and 4) he thought he’d get away with it.
I don’t know about #1 – #3, but Trump is now going to make the cost higher than it was.
In the past the Pubs (and they’re nicknamed the “Stupid Party” for a reason) refused to confront these smears in a credible way. Oh they’d complain but they rarely punched back. So the smears keep coming.
Trump gets this. Even one doesn’t like the man one should recognize that he understands how to fight in the current political climate. So now it’s time to punch back hard.
Tester is up for re-election this year. Ballotpedia rates him as a moderate Dem, but after his recent performance in the Senate Jackson hearing I doubt he will be perceived that way. Wonder if Treasure State voters will decide un-treasure him.
Dingy Harry Reid: “Well, he didn’t get elected, did he?”
Ray Donovan: “Which office do I go to to get my reputation back?”
I think Montana’s voters should be told about the three bodies Tester has buried in his basement.
That is what the Democrat party has slumped to. Smearing flag and general officers. Disgusting
