Conditional on the company severing ties to Deripaska, apparently.

Trump's doctor and VA leader nominee may not be all that and a bedtime burger after all:

Top Senate Dem on Veterans Affairs asks for delay in Ronny Jackson's confirmation hearing

The ranking Democrat on the Senate Veterans Affairs committee is concerned about allegations he's hearing about Ronny Jackson, the president's pick to lead the Department of Veterans Affairs.
Sen. Jon Tester, D-Montana, asked the chairman of the Committee, Sen. Johnny Isakson to postpone Jackson's confirmation hearing, which was scheduled for Wednesday, in light of stories about Jackson told by current or former White House medical staff about the work environment.

Sources familiar with the tales say that Tester's staff is reviewing multiple allegations of a "hostile work environment." The accusations include "excessive drinking on the job, improperly dispensing meds," said one of the people familiar, who was granted anonymity to speak frankly about the situation. The other people familiar with the stories also confirmed those details.

If proven true, "it'll sink his nomination," said one of the sources.

Tester's office began hearing the allegations from current and former employees in the last several days and over the weekend, said one of the people familiar with the ongoing probe.

As of late Monday, it was unclear if the veterans committee planned to postpone Jackson's hearing. Some -- though not all -- of the seven Democratic senators on the Veterans Affairs Committee met Monday evening to discuss what to do about the allegations.

Isakson was out of town, delivering the eulogy at the funeral of his best friend. He is expected to return to Washington late Monday evening.

Jackson was tapped to be VA secretary after President Trump fired former secretary David Shulkin. The Iraq War veteran is best known for his January press conference in which he gave Mr. Trump a clean bill of health.

:lol: Only the best people, right Donald?

There goes the credibility of that clean bill of health for Trump...

You can tell Trump is in supreme health just by looking at him. The ripest orange.

He is actually very sensible. He will only eat McDonald’s and KFC because he is scared of being poisoned. And McDonald’s and KFC are well known for not poisoning people.

Trump is a genius.

Special election in the Arizona 8th yesterday, which was always expected to go Republican. It did, by 5 points. It went to Trump by 25 points in 2016, marking yet another special election that swung 20 points Democratic.

This looks like a blue wave year - if the nation is 20 points bluer than 2 years ago, the Democrats should flip the House and not lose much ground on the Senate front. However, the Generic Congressional Ballot has narrowed recently, to just 7 points IIRC.

It's hard to predict the outcome in November based on what we know of both metrics. We'll have to see what the GCB does over the next few months.

Considering the state of the polls on both Trump and Brexit, I fully expect a red wave to sweep America :lol: :dread:

Trump is DEFINITELY, DEFINITELY coming to the UK this July...supposedly.

Not sure doing it at the height of summer is the best decision. Even more likely to be protests.

I can't comment on Brexit, but I think for Trump that was more an issue with media outlets and pundits ignoring the polls in the final week of the campaign, and especially ignoring the fact that Trump was well within the margin of error for winning.

This is why I'm now convinced there are no aliens at Area 51 as Trump would have mentioned them by now and most likely claimed they're in a pact with Clinton to blow up the earth or something.

Trump's pick for head of the Veteran Affairs dept, his doctor, has withdrawn himself after it became bindingly obvious he wasn't going to get the confirmation.



Yeah so 'false' and 'fabricated' they made him withdraw. Apparently this is the 25th Trump nominee who's withdrawn themselves from consideration.

Night Call: a game what I worked on. Out now!

It's amazing to listen to that and realise he's the President.
He sounds completely unhinged, unprofessional and pretty much on a stream of consciousness rant.
The Idea that you have a President who's so fixated on a previous political opponent who's retired from politics should also worry people but he can do no wrong in the eye's of his fans.

I've said it many times, but it is still relevant.
