White House Doctor Who Raved About Trump's Health Now Says Omicron Is Election Ruse
The former White House doctor, who raved about Donald Trump's "excellent" health in front of a skeptical public, now claims that the worrying new COVID-19 variant Omicron is nothing more than a mid-term Democratic vote.
Dr. Ronny Jackson, now a Texas Republican MAGA Congressman, scoffed at the variant that the World Health Organization has labeled "highly communicable" and "worrying."
"Here comes the ... intermediate voting option!" Jackson quipped in a tweet on Saturday, calling it nothing more than a trick to "push unsolicited national postal votes".
Here comes the MEV - the midterm election variant! You NEED a reason to get unsolicited nationwide absentee ballots. Democrats will do anything to CHEAT during an election - but we will not let them!

Dr. Jonathan Reiner, a professor of medicine and surgery at George Washington University, flogged Jackson on Sunday on CNN for spreading outrageously misinformation about COVID-19.
He blamed people like Jackson as the reason why 50 million people in America haven't been vaccinated and people continue to die.
The ongoing COVID toll is on "people like Ronny Jackson, people who doubt the severity of this pandemic, people who have doubted the consequences of not being vaccinated, people who have doubted the effectiveness of masks," Reiner told Jim Acosta.
“So now, when a new potentially dangerous variant is identified, you see this anti-science from a former doctor. I call him 'former doctor' because that's how he behaves. "
Acosta called Jackson an "embarrassment".
Misinformation from Jackson comes as no great surprise. He raved about Trump's "excellent" health after the then president's physical exam in 2018, despite Trump's extra pounds, the well-known high-fat diet and golf cart golf for his only exercise. There were also concerns about his mental sharpness.
Jackson also listed Trump's height at 6 foot-3 and his weight at a surprising 239 pounds, though many didn't buy it, especially since Trump is just below the obesity threshold, according to statistics.
When asked how he could reconcile Trump's health habits and appearance with a determination that his health is "excellent," the ardent Trump supporter attributed it to "genetics." That's how "God made him", said Jackson.
