    Trump's thought process-"VA- that's a bunch of hospitals, I like my White House doctor, I'll just nominate him. Wow, that was tough, think I'll go golfing now" So lazy and incompetent

    Just another obstruction from the sinister left. They have not confirmed 100s of government positions that are necessary and much needed. Trump haters will always find something wrong with him so you all can go where the sun don’t shine.

    A typical Trump nomination. What is a required to be in the Trump administration? Lubricant.

    It's probably better to have the drunk running the organization instead of actually working with patients.

    The Left/Dems are very sick puppies, indeed. Anything to obstruct, antagonize and demonize President Trump and his appointments. The Dems/Left ONLY care about political power, NOT the good of America.

    You are only a veteran and a doctor, you cant be a great manager like us in the senate!

    So based on there logic where are the qualifications or experience for idiots like Schumer, Schiff, Pelosi, Waters, or even Hillary when she was a senator to work as elected politicians. At least he has experience working in the military to reach the rank of rear admiral.

    The "resistance" to every nomination, executive order, legislative proposal, speech, tweet, offhand comment, and things he would probably think or feel about any given situation is now working in Trump's favor. With the entire media/political establishment, including a politicized bureaucracy and Bob Mueller, fighting tooth and nail to destroy one man, the President has still managed to somehow improve the lives of Americans and make a bit impact on foreign policy. We can see it despite the noise and nonstop faux outrage of the establishment. Even the most skeptical independents are beginning to realize how bad things truly were in Washington, and how the establishment only gave us lip service while maintaining the status quo that benefitted only those in the club of global elites. We got the scraps. This kind of assault on anyone is unprecedented, even for a Republican! Yet, he still stands, defiant and confident as ever. You have to admire that.

    He might be a great doctor, but the VA needs a very experienced administrator.
    Too bad Shulkin screwed up – he made some gutsy moves by removing some incompetent administrators in my local facility.

    Liberal Media are sick people, they call a doctor a "Candy Man " Libtards love cocaine from Mexican border that's why they hate Trump Wall. Why do democrats love drugs? When they sniff cocaine they suck each other cocks and kill White Race they don't reproduce. Liberalism is a disease like cancer you gotta catch it on time before it spreads to other organs.
