Dr. Ronny Jackson was a White House physician to both Barack Obama and Donald Trump. He seemed to take a shine to Trump, though, bragging that the clearly unhealthy man, “could live to 200.”
Jackson enjoyed the adoration he received from Trump World and decided to run for office, winning a House seat in 2020. On Wednesday, the Texas lawmaker appeared on Fox News to blame rap and video games for the recent shooting in his state.
Jackson told Fox News:
“There’s gonna be all kinds of discussions coming up, unfortunately, in the media, regarding Second Amendment in regarding..um.. the other issues around guns in this country. But I think we really need to ask the question of, ‘how can something like this happen?’ How can someone do something so evil? What kind of person, what kind of animal can do this?”
The Texas lawmaker continued, “I grew up in a small town in West Texas, not much smaller than Uvalde. And I could never imagine this happening when I grew up. You know, when I grew up, things were different and there was a focus on family and community and church.”
Jackson closed, “Our culture has changed over the last 30 or 40 years….Kids are exposed to all kinds of horrible stuff these days. I look back and I think about the horrible stuff they hear when they listen to rap music, the video games they watch from a really early age.”
