Coming Up Tuesday on Montana Talks…from the White House
Coming up Tuesday on "Montana Talks" with Aaron Flint- we'll talk with White House Director of Legislative Affairs Marc Short.
This, as President Donald Trump calls on Democrat Senator Jon Tester (D-MT) to resign. Last week, Tester jumped on national TV with what now appears to be a list of false allegations against Navy Admiral Ronny Jackson, the Iraq war veteran and White House doctor nominated to serve as the Secretary of Veterans Affairs.
In an interview with MSNBC's Chuck Todd, Tester admitted that he did not know if the allegations were true before he smeared Admiral Jackson, who has now served 23 years in the US Navy, live on national TV.
As the story unfolded last week, Short told Politico:
“I find it outrageous for a senator for political gain to take uncorroborated allegations that have not been investigated and to throw them out in a way to besmirch somebody’s character,” said Marc Short, Trump’s legislative director. “Very irresponsible to go on national TV and make those allegations knowing that that would besmirch that person’s character.”
Short will join us in the 8 o'clock hour of "Montana Talks" with Aaron Flint. Flint is an Iraq/Afghan combat veteran who has served on four deployments with the US military.
