As Twitchy told you last night, Donald Trump announced that he was giving VA Secretary David Shulkin the boot and replacing him with White House physician Rear Adm. Ronny Jackson. Yes, we said âWhite House physician.â But apparently the New York Times just couldnât pass up the opportunity to make it look like Trump was doing a friend a personal favor, because hereâs the headline they went with:
âTrumps doctorâ? Heâs been the White House doc for years before Trump. The New York Times just canât stop itself pic.twitter.com/DinhAAkMYL

Real subtle, guys. Reminder:
An admiral in the U.S. Navy, Jackson practiced medicine as part of the American military effort in Iraq before President George W. Bush brought him to the White House. He became the top White House doctor under President Obama in 2013.
John Stosselâs right: They really canât stop.
