Give That Revolving Door Another Spin! David Shulkin Is OUT!

And of course, the ax fell, via Twitter.


I mentioned recently that the rumor mill was working on this story, suggesting that President Trump wasn’t done shuffling and flipping. The RedState Insider closely followed the heat on Shulkin, too.

Of all the firings, however, this one seems quite warranted.

Never should our vets be allowed to do without, while the one charged with tending to their needs at the top is too busy living it up. In the case of Shulkin, he was the subject of several VA watchdog investigations for improper spending, receiving gifts improperly, and an improper use of personnel.

Shulkin needed to go, and he did. But that doesn’t mean there’s not a churn going on.

So considering that… who’s next? And should we start a RedState pool?
