Representative Ronny Jackson, a Texas Republican who previously served as the White House doctor during the Trump administration, did not get the answers he expected after he asked his Twitter followers to name the "best" thing about former President Donald Trump.
Jackson's tweet comes as Trump faces heightened scrutiny over his actions on January 6, 2021, the day a mob of his supporters attacked the United States Capitol on the false premise the 2020 general election had been stolen.
But if Jackson wanted to rehabilitate Trump's image, then Twitter users weren't biting.
Many made clear that the "best" thing about Trump is that he lost the election he continues to falsely allege was rife with fraud and abuse.
Jackson is one of the most dedicated Trump acolytes in Congress.
Last August, Jackson claimed Biden is no longer “cognitively prepared to be our president,” joining the chorus of Republicans who criticized Biden over his administration's handling of the crisis in Afghanistan that unfolded when the Taliban stepped into the power vacuum following the fall of Kabul.
At the time, Jackson said the United States is "looking horrible right now on the world stage" and called for him to resign because "it’s time for him to move on and it’s time for somebody else to do this job."
Just months before, Jackson sent a letter to Physician to the President Kevin O’Connor and Chief Medical Adviser Dr. Anthony Fauci demanding that Biden take a cognitive test. 14 House Republicans also signed the letter.
Jackson has been a largely controversial figure since his days as the White House doctor. During a January 2018 press briefing, Jackson vouched for Trump's health, saying his neurological functions are excellent and assuring the press corps that he would be able to serve his entire term.
Jackson was widely mocked after adding that Trump likely had "incredible genes" that allowed him to remain healthy despite a lack of exercise and a taste for fast food.
