President Donald Trump has blown out the mainstream media in his latest cabinet confirmation.
On Sunday, Dr. Jerome Adams was sworn in as the United States surgeon general, poking massive holes in the “alt-left” narrative that the commander in chief is a purported “racist.”
Adams is the 20th surgeon general to hold the official position.
“To be confirmed as the 20th US Surgeon General is truly an indescribable honor,” Adams tweeted.
Adams is an anesthesiologist who previously served as the Indiana state health commissioner — “in essence the Surgeon General for Indiana,” he said in a statement to the Senate committee. Prior to that, he served as a staff anesthesiologist and assistant professor of anesthesia at the Indiana University School of Medicine, where he completed his medical degree. He earned undergraduate degrees in biochemistry and biopsychology and a master’s degree in public health.
“The addictive properties of prescription opioids is a scourge in America and it must be stopped,” wrote Adams in his nomination committee statement. He added that he shared US Health and Human Services Secretary Tom Price’s top priorities, including “the opioid epidemic, and untreated mental illness, which lie at the root of much of the current situation.”
“I bring to this discussion a unique perspective, and a proven track record of bringing together various groups to address the problem,” Adams wrote in his statement. In May 2015, he revealed that his brother is an addict during testimony at a House Energy and Commerce Committee.
