As Twitchy reported, there was a bit of a shakeup in the White House today as President Trump announced that he was firing Veterans Affairs Secretary David Shulkin and replacing him with Rear Adm. Ronny L. Jackson.


And, that’s the same physician who gave Trump such a glowing report after administering his physical in January — the one that had NBC News’ Ken Dilanian wondering if the president would step on a scale in public to prove he weighed only 239 lbs. — because obviously, the doctor was lying, right? He even called the president “very sharp” just at the time when the media narrative was that Trump was obviously mentally unfit for office because of his tweets.

Now Politico’s Edward-Isaac Dovere is getting in on the game, reporting on “some suspicion that went around a few months ago.”

“This will likely feed those suspicions” — and that’s what journalism is all about, right?

Wouldn’t this be dismissed as a far-right conspiracy theory if the parties were reversed? Maybe — but there was that suspicion floating around.
