V.A. secretary Shulkin FIRED!

WASHINGTON (AP) — President Donald Trump fired Veterans Affairs Secretary David Shulkin on Wednesday in the wake of a bruising ethics scandal and a mounting rebellion within the agency.
Shulkin is the second Cabinet secretary to depart over controversies involving expensive travel, following former Health and Human Services Secretary Tom Price's resignation last September.
Trump is nominating Rear Admiral Ronny Jackson to succeed Shulkin, a former Obama administration official and the first non-veteran ever to head the VA. Jackson has served since 2013 as the Physician to the President, and gained a national profile earlier this year for holding a sweeping press conference on the president's health.

As an Obama holdover, rather a sturdy compliment to have held on for so long into the Trump era.
 The granting of a pardon is an imputation of guilt, and the acceptance a confession of it.

Apparently all you have to do is flatter Trump to get a job (get someone else's job). 

Not that Shulkin was ever that bright.

Someone should have realized by now that the VA has an impossible task.  That's because we can't seem to keep our troops out of harm's way.

Someday maybe we'll learn to stop fucking with other people but not under the WLB's administration.

Kittens are better at pawing at snakes.  Leave the kittens out of this!  Wink

VA has kept me alive to this point. Today might be different.

If the trumpster could haul his ass up a horse he'd have appointed it secretary of state by now.
