    David Shulkin your painful time with the Trump government was a time from of the “Dark Ages”!

  3. Honesty and truth will always out because of people such as this patriotic American. 💙

  4. His words are meaningless unless he states his words under oath. However, I do believe him!

  5. I remember when he first broke the story because of the 3 associations at moron’s golf course running the VA from Florida. A, 4 time deployed, Democratic candidate, had his VA Medical Records RELEASED to the public and used to SMEAR him and defeat his mid term election, by a Republican. Chump is CORRUPTING Veteran’s Admin and every other institution. One of Putin’s top Wish List Items is to DESTROY America’s INTEL AGENCIES. BARR is doing exactly that!!

    In my opinion, it is this administration’s belief that the government’s purpose to increase the personal wealth of a few at the expense of our country and it’s people, all the while eroding our Constitution and our democracy.

      Exactly! Donald Trump is a narcissistic, pathological lying, egomaniacal, self aggrandizing, narcissistic, moron and thief! Been a conman his entire life. Failed at all his businesses, multiple bankruptcies, never paid his bills, been financed by the Russians since the 80s! His cult are just a means to an end for him. He doesn’t care about any of them! I feel sorry for them as they cheer him. He wouldn’t wipe his foot on one of them!

  7. People can serve Trump or they can serve their country. They cannot do both.

    • ruth depew : Well said ✌️👍

    • S : Trump chose Putin

    • Jeff Woods 👈 🤨 🙂 😄 😄 😁 😄 😆 😅 😂 🤣 😂 🤣 😂😆 😂 🤣

    • @Ash Roskell you can laugh all you want..You cannot prove what I’m saying wrong..the Country is flourishing, there is no dem candidate trying to fight the President on the economy which, is the biggest issue..the lowest unemployment rate, etc..All they can do is spew far left socialist agendas that would cripple our economy, tax everyone at least 70%, change the Constitution to suit their agenda which would destroy the 1st, 2nd amendments and try to smear the President’s character..

    • And the Orange pig is still smelling up the Oval Office. Remove him now!

  8. What is toxic is T R U M P
    It is no surprise that his name is being removed from buildings around the world.

  9. Our country is under attack from within, and we can’t do anything about it because of a DoJ memo?

  10. Veterans got used by Bone Spurs.
    Don the Con.

  11. Bone Spurs missed Armistice Day because it rained,
    Missed Arlington because he slept in
    Uses Veteran’s like props.

  12. The VA shouldn’t be privatized.
    Taking care of veterans are worth more than profits

  13. Dr. Dave, you were the best at the top of the VA and are still the best person to do the job. I still can’t believe you were railroaded out with lies and deceit. As a user of the VA for 31 years I am still outraged and saddened to loose you. Best wishes to you and your family Sir.

  14. Keep the environment clean, don’t vote in hoodlums.

    Shulkin was a good man. Vets liked and respected him.

  16. it seems like Trump is gutting out the Executive Branch and putting in his cronies who are probably fascist infiltrators.

    See the white Scraggily hair at the side of trumps Head. Well that’s what is head is like. An old creepy head of nothing.

  18. Let’s all be honest….
    This dumpster fire of a presidency is exactly what most of us thought was going to happen.
    And t’rump did not disappoint! 😆😅

    Sad for the VA that someone with his clarity and genuine intent is submarined by Putin-Puppet Trump.

  20. Vets believe in serving their country. Yet the current administration doesn’t believe the government shouldn’t be involved with any services that would help them?
    And shameful.
