오바마와 트럼프의 로니 잭슨: From 'tremendous asset' to 'tyrant'

inspector general report detailing allegations of “성적 및 비하” comments made by former White House physician 대표. 로니 잭슨, along with accounts of drinking and taking prescription sleep aids on the job while overseas, come after a lengthy tenure across three administrations.

The Texas Republican’s role in the White House orbit evolved over time, starting as a Navy rear admiral assigned to work on staff in the Medical Unit under George W. 부시 2006 to being placed in charge of medical care at Camp David to eventually running the entire operation as Physician to the President.
The upward trajectory was helped along by a relatively positive reputation among White House aides and the presidents they served, who viewed Jackson as reliable and friendly.
    President Barack Obama hand-wrote performance reviews of Jackson describing him as atremendous asset to the entire White House teamand declaringRonny does a great jobgenuine enthusiasm, poised under pressure, incredible work ethic and follow throughwhen recommending him for promotions.
      Obama’s successor, 도널드 트럼프 대통령, 더 멀리 갔다. He nominated Jackson to run an entire federal agency, the Department of Veterans Affairs, after taking a personal liking to his doctor, who declared Trump inexcellent healthafter his 2018 physical exam, despite evidence of heart disease and borderline obesity.
        It was after his nomination to lead the VA that allegations of misconduct first emerged, eventually leading to Jackson’s withdrawal from consideration. But he remained in Trump’s White House as a medical adviser before eventually running for a US congressional seat in Texas, which he won.
        Over the same span of years, 보고서에 따르면, Jackson was cultivating a hostile work environment and engaging in troubling behavior.
          4 월부터 마닐라로 대통령 여행 22, 2014 4 월까지 29, 2014 four witnesses who traveled with Obama and Jackson said that Jackson became intoxicated and made inappropriate comments about a female medical subordinate.
          2 년 후, 바릴로체, 아르헨티나, two witnesses told the inspector general they saw Jackson drinking a beer while he was serving as the physician to Obama and in charge of providing medical care for a presidential trip.
          이 두 가지 알코올 사용 혐의는 모두 오바마 행정부에서 발생했습니다., 그러나 보고서는 잭슨이 화를 낸 오바마와 트럼프의 일련의 사건을 자세히 설명합니다., 부하들에게 저주.
          Jackson’s evolution over time from a seemingly apolitical doctor to a deeply conservative politician to — 지금 — a scandal-plagued congressman has proven surprising to some who knew him during his years at the White House.
          When he was serving as the White House physician during the Obama administration, Jackson was generally well-regarded among Obama’s aides and by the President himself, with whom he was friendly. He was a regular presence on presidential trips and at the White House, where he worked from the basement medical suite with a small team.
          He did not have much of a public profile; when a person fainted during a news conference at the end of 2016, Obama offered up Jackson’s services.
          There’s Dr. 잭슨,” 오바마는 말했다, directing the individual to the medical suite. “Doctor’s in the house.
          One former Obama official said Jackson and Obama got along well and had gotten to know each other during lengthy overseas trips and because Jackson was a constant presence at the White House. They said they never detected any animosity between them and couldn’t remember Jackson ever voicing a political view.
          Obama has no plans to comment on the inspector general’s report on Jackson’s conduct in the White House, spokeswoman Katie Hill told CNN on Wednesday. A spokesman for Trump did not respond to a request for comment about the inspector general report.
          In a statement on Tuesday, 잭슨이 말했다: “민주당 원들은이 보고서를 사용하여 내 진실성에 대한 거짓된 공격을 반복하고 재 시도합니다.”
          “저는 양당의 세 명의 다른 대통령 아래에서 조성한 업무 환경이 자랑 스럽습니다. ㅇ ㅇㅇㅇ ㅇㅇㅇ ㅇㅇㅇ ㅇㅇㅇ ㅇㅇㅇ ㅇㅇㅇ ㅇㅇㅇ ㅇㅇㅇ ㅇㅇㅇ ㅇㅇㅇ ㅇㅇㅇ ㅇㅇㅇ ㅇㅇㅇ ㅇㅇㅇ ㅇㅇㅇ ㅇㅇㅇ ㅇㅇㅇ ㅇㅇㅇ ㅇㅇㅇ ㅇㅇㅇ ㅇㅇㅇ ㅇㅇㅇ ㅇㅇㅇ ㅇㅇㅇ ㅇㅇㅇ ㅇㅇㅇ ㅇㅇㅇ ㅇㅇㅇ ㅇㅇㅇ ㅇㅇㅇ ㅇㅇㅇ ㅇㅇㅇ ㅇㅇㅇ ㅇㅇㅇ ㅇㅇㅇ ㅇㅇㅇ ㅇㅇㅇ ㅇㅇㅇ ㅇㅇㅇ ㅇㅇㅇ ㅇㅇㅇ ㅇㅇㅇ ㅇㅇㅇ ㅇㅇㅇ ㅇㅇㅇ ㅇㅇㅇ; 나는 처방약 관행과 관련하여 나의 직업적 책임을 진지하게 생각합니다.; 그리고 근무 중에 술을 마셨다는 주장을 거부합니다.,” 잭슨이 말했다.
          Asked further about the allegations on Capitol Hill on Wednesday, Jackson declined to comment.
          I’ve already submitted a statement,” he told reporters.
          One former Obama administration official said the allegations were not surprising, given so much of the former White House physician’s conduct has been reviewed and discussed since he was Obama’s official doctor.
          A second Obama administration official said the allegations add another layer to the question ofwhat happenedto Jackson, who was a widely respected and admired figure in the Obama White House. That view of him has long been shattered during the Trump era, making the report just more fodder for that question.
          트럼프 아래, Jackson’s career took on an entirely different tack. After touting the commander in chief’sincredible genesand overallexcellenthealth during a news conferencewhile downplaying signs of heart diseaseTrump took a personal interest in Jackson.
          He nominated his doctor to the position of rear admiral (upper half) from his previous position of rear admiral (lower half). And eventually he nominated him to oversee Veterans Affairs, a sprawling agency charged with the medical care for former US service-members. An official said at the time Trump liked the way Jackson handled himself with reporters during the briefing about his health.
          Representatives from veterans groups and lawmakers openly questioned whether Jackson had the right experience to run the sprawling agency, despite his military and medical background. Obama’s aides also privately questioned whether he was qualified to run such a large agency, even as they defended his character.
          아직도, a former Obama official who traveled frequently with Jackson told CNN at the time of his nomination thathe had his detractors.
          He was bossy. He was loud,” 관계자는 말했다, adding that while Jackson was known to drink alcohol on trips, he was also often seen not drinking in social situations. The officials said they were never made aware of drunken incidents at the time.
          Trump remained stalwart.
          For no reason whatsoever, his reputation has been shattered,” he bemoaned on Twitter, calling for the resignation Sen. Jon Tester, the Montana Democrat who was one of the first to raise the allegations against Jackson.
          나중, 하나, Trump acknowledged he knew Jackson’s nomination was going south.
          I even told him a day or two ago I saw where this was going,” Trump said the day Jackson withdrew his name from consideration.
          But he remained supportive, including re-nominating him to receive a second star even as he remained under Pentagon investigation over allegations of improper behavior.
          And Jackson heavily utilized his friendship with Trump, and connections to the White House, when he launched his bid for Congress in Texas’s 13th District in 2019.
          Battling a crowded primary field, he told supporters he was friends with Cabinet secretaries and the chief of staff, and boasted he could pick up his cellphone to call them.
            He ran in the general election as a staunch Trump supporterand began spouting conspiracy theories, including that Obama had spied on Trump’s presidential campaign.
            The turn left some officials from the Obama administration a little perplexed, because Jackson was considered even-minded, apoliticaland friendly with Obama, who he baselessly accused of grave crimes.
