After President Trump’s bizarre and unexpected tweet about firing the Secretary of Veterans Affairs and replacing him with the White House physician, an article on BBC was released and apparently, the article’s title ruffled Don Jr’s tiny feathers.
You mean ADMIRAL Ronny Jackson who BTW was also Obama’s doctor? Just so we are clear and eliminate any of what your conveniently misleading headline suggests. https://t.co/xqxKsuqupe

Trump Jr’s Twitter tantrum sparked the interest of several people, as many mocked his random outburst:
Um, Obama didn’t nominate him, your Daddy did. Can I get a sweet gig too if I say he’s taller and weighs less than he actually does?

And BHO DIDN’T appoint him to the highest position regarding veterans. He let him check his blood pressure. See the difference?

Dafuq does him having been Obama’s doctor have to do with anything? Did Obama appoint him to do a damn thing other than examine him while he was in the WH? No. He didn’t.

This from a family that hired the wedding planner (they owed money?) to manage huge agencies outside experience set. Loyalty above competence that is the Trump way.

How is he QUALIFIED for this job? Just because he is an MD? THAT is NOT a requirement! You’d be better getting someone who has been in Hospital Administration!!! You don’t hire your TAX attorney to represent you in a criminal case! Are you educated?

… there’s literally nothing misleading about that headline

No one is denying that Jackson is an admiral, but also no one cares that he’s an admiral. Americans want someone who is qualified to serve their position. The White House physician has no managerial experience, and no clue about budgeting or running a department. That is why he was appointed White House doctor — because that’s the job he is suited for. And the fact that he was Obama’s physician still doesn’t make him qualified. Trump Jr is just trying to cover up for his father’s incompetence, but America is not falling for it.
Besides, Junior should be a little less concerned about articles he doesn’t like and more concerned about his divorce.
