  1. It’s a shame that recently this somehow weirdly became a somewhat political position under Trump. It’s literally just the doctor appointed as the physician as the president but Trump’s first one is now a Republican representative that ran on being an anti-masker and his second one left with Trump despite being an active duty military officer. Honestly just the mix of the military and politics under Trump was pretty disturbing as a vet.
