Birther king Donald Trump demands Sen. Jon Tester resign over allegations against Dr. Ronny Jackson (the dude who claimed he weighs 239 pounds), claiming the Secret Service told him the allegations are lies.
Trump is tweeting up a storm attacking Tester, even though the Republican chairman of the Senate Veterans Affairs Committee, Sen. Johnny Isakson (R-GA), said he did nothing wrong with making the allegations public.
In response, a spokeswoman for @JohnnyIsakson, GOP chair of VA committee: “Senator Isakson has a great relationship with Senator Tester. He doesn’t have a problem with how things were handled. I don’t know for sure but highly doubt he’s seen the president’s tweets this morning.” https://t.co/8AGjhmLNdb

Trump tweeted: “Secret Service has just informed me that Senator Jon Tester’s statements on Admiral Jackson are not true. There was no such findings. A horrible thing that we in D.C. must live with, just like phony Russian Collusion. Tester should lose race in Montana. Very dishonest and sick!”

The U.S. Secret Service did not confirm or deny that all the allegations were unfounded. They only stated that there was no proof Jackson had tried to barge into Obama’s hotel room on one occasion and that they had no evidence of the drunken car crash.
This is all very rich considering this is the same dude who falsely accused former President Barack Obama of wiretapping his phones at Trump Tower during the 2016 presidential election campaign.
Terrible! Just found out that Obama had my "wires tapped" in Trump Tower just before the victory. Nothing found. This is McCarthyism!

Then there’s this gem: “An ‘extremely credible source’ has called my office and told me that @BarackObama’s birth certificate is a fraud.”

Donald Trump has zero credibility on just about anything, especially when he accuses people of lying. If he’s talking or tweeting he’s lying. But what he should do, is if he feels that Dr. Jackson was wronged, re-nominate him and the Senate committee should question him under oath. I’m pretty sure the truth will come out and it will be clear, crystal clear, that he is unqualified to lead the VA.
Of course, Twitter clapped back hard after Trump demands Sen. Jon Tester resign:
