Donald Trump on Saturday posted what was supposed to be an update on his health after he was shot in the ear, but political analysts and other onlookers weren't impressed.Trump posted the letter, which you can read here, on Truth Social. But it was penned by Trump's former White House doctor Ronny Jackson, who now serves as a Republican Texas lawmaker, who has been accused of handing out drugs freely and being drunk and doped up on Ambien on the job.Jackson has also previously been criticized for his hyper-partisan statements against the current president, Joe Biden.ALSO READ: Milwaukee girded for massive convention protests. But they got something else.The internet reacted poorly to the letter.Legal analyst Marcy Wheeler, of EmptyWheel, called Jackson "a conspiracy theorist who covered up Trump's near-lethal COVID and who turned the White House into a pill mill.""This is worth as much as toilet paper," the analyst added. "Love that self-imagined journalists are giving this as much credence as Trump’s propagandists."Allison Gill, a veteran and comedian better known as Mueller, She Wrote, also chimed in."Oh. Well if the pill mill guy who was demoted by the Navy says so," she wrote on Saturday.Journalist Yashar Ali noted that the letter was "signed by Dr. Ronny Jackson of all people."Commentator Brian Tyler Cohen noted the key words, as well."Operative words: 'from Ronny Jackson.'"Brett Meiselas wrote, "Ronny Jackson putting this out is a quick way to get no one to believe anything it says."According to The Shallow State, Jackson is "a sycophant and a quack.""Among those I'd rather take medical advice from include Dr. Dre, Dr. J, Doc Severinson, Dr. Hook, Dr. Suess, Dr. Strangelove, Dr. Scholls, Dr. Pepper, Doctor Who, Dr. Demento, Doctor Detroit, Docusign, and Dr. Quinn Medicine Woman," the account wrote Saturday.
