Exclusive: Trump says Russia helping North Korea skirt sanctions; Pyongyang getting close on missile

[Trump] He blamed his three immediate predecessors, Bill Clinton, George W. Bush and Barack Obama, for failing to resolve the crisis and, a day after his doctor gave him a perfect score on a cognitive test, suggested he had the mental acuity to solve it.

“I guess they all realized they were going to have to leave it to a president that scored the highest on tests,” he said.

We are in the world full of darkness, and this has been more evident in our days than ever before the days of Daniel. Looking with the prophetic eye we are not supposed to surprised. All we need is to pray and surrender our all to Christ.

I'm not sure how much deep thinking Kim has to do by simply killing everyone who opposes him and has the luxury of having an anti-world government U.S. President as his opponent.... A president people favor dictators over even though he hasn't done anything close to the atrocities they've committed. 

  • Donald Trump is not a deep thinker, he has proven himself to be impulsive and questionably unstable. Kim Jung Un is calculating, his relentless pursuit to obtain nuclear weapons to serve his end goal may become his undoing. His calculating acts maybe a miscalculation when matched against Donald Trump.  

It's kinda sad the hyperbolic reaction people get when their political opponent wins.  Seriously, people have compared Trump to Stalin and Hitler.... .Can they show me the mass graves? All they have is some lame Russian conspiracy 'Theory'.... Nothing the Russians did made me vote for Trump over Hillary... Years of Liberal Democratic SJW, hypocritical posturing and pandering to a world govt agenda led to that.

Trump has been dodging petty crap since he got into office. Look at how the press reacted when Obama's doctor gave Trump a relatively clean bill of health.  Does that make him a deep thinker? No. But lets not assume deep thinking alone gets you any where since policies from several presidents before Trump empowered the Loco NoKo regimes and allowed things to get to this point. 

Pretty much the same will be going on with Iran thanks to things like air mailing them a over a billion dollars in cash to spend as they please..... Lots of deep thinking going on there.  Deep thinking purely for the sake of appeasing the one world government crowd. 

When you're a part of the world Government agenda, a certain sect of people turn a blind eye to things you do.  When you're against it virtually everything you do gets blown up.  These people praise things like California wanting to leave the union but completely ignore things like Spain jailing Catalonians over their independence movement.  Why? Because Trump position is Anti-World Government while Spain and California leadership is all in.

If Trump or Israel did things like what Spain did it would likely be considered a crime against humanity.


Don’t be so gullible, it wasn’t Obama’s doctor; stop listening to FOX News.  He is a United States military officer assigned to assigned to be the physician to the president, Donald Trump is now that president.

In 2006, while still in Iraq, Jackson was selected as a White House physician. Since arriving at the White House, he has directed the Executive Health Care for the President’s Cabinet and Senior Staff, served as physician supervisor for the Camp David Presidential Retreat, held the position of physician to the White House and led the White House Medical Unit as its director. He has served as White House physician during the past three administrations and was the appointed physician to the president for President Barack Obama. He currently serves as the appointed physician to the president for President Donald J. Trump.

What are you talking about Gene? Are you so biased you're ignoring your own facts?

  • He has served as White House physician during the past three administrations and was the appointed physician to the president for President Barack Obama.

Judging from the list of the physician’s duties and responsibilities, it is natural to assume that the terms “physician” and “doctor” are synonymous. True enough, the two terms can be used interchangeably in many instances. Note, however, that all physicians are doctors, but not all doctors are physicians.

You seriously might want to stop being so partisan assuming everything that doesn't favor your stance comes from fox news.   It's a little worrying that you would post confirmation of what I said in your own rebuttal and not even seem to realize it....  Does the #notmypresident now apply to Obama?  Is that why you're saying he wasn't Obama's doctor?


I think saying Obama’s doctor is somewhat disingenuous. It seems to imply that Obama brought him to the White House from Chicago, that he was Obama’s family doctor, which of course it not the case.

As a doctor and military office who served as the White House doctor for several years, he obviously was recognized for his service and appointed doctor to the president by Obama. In case you didn’t realize, the “President” is not a person, but it is the office that the person holds. The president was Obama when he was appointed as doctor to the president, but now the president is Trump, the doctor serves the president.

  •  In case you didn’t realize, the “President” is not a person, 

I'm really starting to worry about you Gene.  But, I guess you can call it whatever makes you fell better. Truth however will makes it appear like you're twisting things to look more partisan than reality. 

President - noun:  an official chosen to preside over a meeting or assembly.

Official - noun: a person holding public office or having official duties, especially as a representative of an organization or government department.

Noun: Person, place or thing 

The truth is that Ronny Jackson was assigned to be physician to the President by President Obama. It's far from the ceremonial role you seem to wish it was to suit your political narrative. While it would be convenient for some people to say President Obama was a drone who only handed out ceremonial titles to fill vital roles, indicative of his pursuit of emotional SJW issues over many real problems facing average Americans, I won't go that route. 

Truth be told, we currently only elect people to be president here in the United states. It's not a title given to autonomous systems, robots or drones.  The person who was president at the time Ronny was appointed physician to the president was Obama. That would have made him Obama's doctor since he was president at the time.  

Unless you're saying Obama was never actually president.  President Obama, is the president I'm talking about. The factual presidential role held by people. Not some creative definition drummed up to suit a political narrative.

The Physician to the President (also known colloquially as the White House doctor) is the formal and official title of the physician who is director of the White House Medical Unit, a unit of the White House Military Office responsible for the medical needs of the President of the United States,

The President of the United States (abbreviated as POTUS (POE-tus)[note 2]) is the head of state and head of government of the United States of America. The president directs the executive branch of the federal government and is the commander-in-chief of the United States Armed Forces.


No one is President before they are elected.  They are elected to preside over the office of the President. The official duties of President you have outlined.

Presidency of the United States of America, chief executive “office” of the United States.

What’s so hard for you to understand about this. The person holding the office is the President, it’s just like the Papacy, the one holding the office is the pope.  Yes, Obama was holding the office at the time Dr. Jackson was appointed Dr. to the President, he was the President’s Doctor. Trump now holds the office therefore, Dr. Jackson is his doctor because he was appointed Dr. to the President.

Instead of reporting he was Obama’s doctor, it should have read, he was the doctor to the President appointed under the Obama’s administration.

  • No one is President before they are elected.  They are elected to preside over the office of the President. The official duties of President you have outlined.

Never said otherwise but nice try attempting to change the narrative with the Presidency reference. I said we elect people as presidents here in the USA.... guess you conveniently overlooked that

Obama was the President who assigned him. People seem to hate being reminded of that because it takes away their argument that he's as partisan and biased as they are in wanting to diagnose things they don't understand while throwing out sexist claims to people who did the same thing to Hillary. 

Here's some articles that might help you understand how it works. Trump could have replaced replaced Dr. Jackson with a doctor of his choosing.   Take note of the first one since it's from the view of President Obama himself and 'politically neutral' CNN. 

Obama offers up his doctor at news conference

Donald Trump will keep Barack Obama's White House doctor

What I’m trying to express to you is that the Doctor to the President is an official title, and to just say Obama’s doctor makes it appear as something else; Obama’s doctor!!!

The Physician to the President (also known colloquially as the White House doctor) is the formal and official title of the physician who is director of the White House Medical Unit, a unit of the White House Military Office responsible for the medical needs of the President of the United States, Vice President, White House staff, and visitors.[1] The Physician to the President is also the Chief White House Physician.

… Dr. Presley Marion Rixey, a Medical Inspector in the United States Navy, was the first individual to serve in a full-time capacity as physician to the President beginning in 1901, although the title "White House Physician" was not used until created by an act of Congress in 1928.

The White House physician has an office inside the White House. The location of his or her medical unit plays an important role in keeping the President of the United States healthy. He or she also oversees a staff which is typically composed of five military physicians, five nurses, five physician assistants, three medics, three administrators and one IT Manager. The White House Physician is metaphorically the "shadow of the President"[5] because he or she is always close at hand whether the President is at the White House, overseas, on the campaign trail, or aboard presidential plane Air Force One.[5] The Physician to the President protects the president's health and may also perform emergency surgery.

The White House doctor is also responsible for providing comprehensive medical care to the members of the president's immediate family, the Vice President, and the Vice President's family. He or she may also provide medical care and attention to the more than 1.5 million visitors who tour the White House each year, as well as to international dignitaries and other guests of the President.

The White House Physician is often selected personally by the President, and most White House doctors are active-duty military officers,[5] in part because most civilians would find closing then reopening their private practices difficult.

1989 to 1993: Burton J. Lee III, MD (concurrent with Lawrence C. Mohr, Jr.)[30][31]

1993 to 2001: RDML Eleanor Mariano, MD, USN[5][32]

2002 to 2009: Brigadier General Richard J. Tubb, USAF[1][33]

2009 to July 2013: Captain Jeffrey Kuhlman, MD, USN[1][34]

July 2013 to present: RADM Ronny Jackson, MD, USN[35][b]

Yes, Donald Trump could very well appoint another doctor as The White House Physician, that’s his right.  The point is this, the White House Physician serves on behalf of the president, it is an official role established by congress.

Gene, you're really trying to change the narrative or something worse and troubling is going on here.  The simple facts are, Obama was president, he had his choice, he chose Dr. Ronny Jackson to be his physician while he was in office.  When Trump became president, instead of making a change he decided to keep  Dr. Ronny Jackson, the physician President Obama chose. 

  • What I’m trying to express to you is that the Doctor to the President is an official title, and to just say Obama’s doctor makes it appear as something else; Obama’s doctor!!!

You could attach that irrelevant redirecting argument to lot of people in public office.  The people we're talking about are/were Presidents, if they weren't we likely wouldn't be having this discussion.  The history you posted does nothing but support what I'm saying and contradict your earlier post claiming the president is not a person.  Being President is not a fictional role, real people hold it Gene. 

Obama, Trump and all the presidents before them were still people once that were elected president as far as I know.  People who needed doctors. Just like they got to choose officials to fill various cabinet roles such as Agriculture, labor, health and Defense they also get to choose their Physician.  President Obama made his choices.  As the head of executive he was responsible for that while he was in office

This is almost precisely why I stopped voting liberal.  Any time there's a discussion where they are on the wrong side of things they attempt to change the narrative to somethings that's off course from original subject.

You seem to have the view that becoming President no longer makes you a person.  Here are a couple more articles that talk about how Dr. Ronny Jackson was President Obama's doctor.

Sound thinking and points Rabbitroup! I couldn't have said it better myself.
