Is Dr. Ronny Jackson qualified to run Veterans Affairs?

Netflix's tweet references Sen. Drugs he prescribed included Ambien, used for sleep, and Provigil, used to help wake up.

"Riverdale is a documentary", the streaming service wrote on Twitter, along with a screenshot of "Riverdale" character Jughead learning that "most of the drugs in Riverdale come from the Candyman".

Rear Adm. Ronny Jackson, MD, the White House physician nominated for secretary of the Department of Veterans Affairs, has come under fire recently after allegations of misconduct, and though President Donald Trump has seemed to falter in his support, White House officials have not, according to The Hill.

Those accusations come on top of a series of other allegations on Tuesday, including that Jackson was known as "The Candy Man" for his willingness to provide prescription sleeping pills on overnight flights and that he had banged on the door of a female staffer, while intoxicated, on a trip overseas with President Obama.

That allegedly earned Jackson the nickname "the candy man", Tester said. Jackson's appointment is subject to confirmation by the committee.

"I had reservations, given Admiral Jackson's lack of administrative experience, and recent allegations have only added to those reservations", said Rep. Julia Brownley, D-Calif., a member of the House VA committee.

And she says he's received more vetting than most nominees due to his close proximity to the last three presidents.

"Dr. Jackson's record as a White House physician has been impeccable", Sanders said.

A Senate committee has revealed separate allegations of improper prescribing of drugs and the use of alcohol.

"That's the reports that we got from the people, the 20-something people, who got a hold of us and said, 'We've got a problem". Jackson was viewed as someone who "would roll over anyone", "worked his way up on the backs of others", "was a suck up to those above him and abusive to those below him", a "kiss up, kick down boss", "put his needs above everyone else's". After examining Trump earlier this year, Jackson proclaimed him to be in "excellent" health and said he had "incredibly good genes".

Jackson told reporters at the White House on Wednesday he isn't withdrawing from the confirmation process to become VA secretary.

Asked if Jackson's nomination was viable, the committee chairman, Sen.

The two lawmakers sent a letter to Trump on Tuesday requesting additional information about Jackson.

The 2012 assessment suggested the White House consider replacing Jackson or Dr. Jeffrey Kuhlman - or both. He is quoted saying he was willing to do what was necessary to straighten out the command, even if it "meant finding a new position in Navy Medicine". Jackson was named physician to the President in 2013, after Kuhlman left the unit entirely.
