Larry Klayman: Trump Must Fight Hard for Dr. Ronny

(Newsmax TV's "America Talks Live")

By    |   Wednesday, 25 April 2018 02:39 PM

President Donald Trump should fight tooth and nail to defend Dr. Ronny Jackson against the vicious character assassination threatening his nomination to head the Department of Veterans Affairs, former federal prosecutor Larry Klayman told Newsmax TV on Wednesday.

"We have a legitimate concern about sexual harassment and things like that," Klayman, founder of the government watchdog Freedom Watch, told co-hosts Miranda Khan and John Cardillo on Wednesday's "America Talks Live."

"But it's gone too far with the so-called 'Me Too' movement, where men are accused of things and they don't have a chance to defend themselves. And just on the accusations, [men] are affectively indicted and convicted . . . and that's why I think the president is digging in his heels."

The allegations against Jackson, the White House physician under both Trump and former President Barack Obama, include involvement in a hostile work environment, drinking on the job and improperly dispensing medication.

Sources told CNN that in one incident on an overseas trip in 2015, Jackson was intoxicated and banged on the hotel room door of a female employee. The incident became so loud the Secret Service stopped Jackson over concern he would wake then-president Barack Obama, the sources said.

Members of the Senate Veterans' Affairs Committee have been investigating the allegations.

Klayman urged Trump make a big deal of a handwritten note Obama once wrote praising Jackson as a "tremendous asset to the entire White House team."

"Obama's praise is so important because we have to put an end to this, we're creating racial divisions in this country, divisions between the sexes . . . we're being torn apart," Klayman told Khan and Cardillo.

"[Trump] needs to fight for Mr. Jackson, and fight for men because men deserve to be treated equally with women. But in this society today, forget it, men are second-class citizens, they are no longer equal, even to women."

Khan responded to Klayman's charge, telling him, "Speaking as a woman, I do not consider you a second-class citizen. I have to throw that out there."
