“Former White House doctor Ronny Jackson, who told the New York Times he regretted not doing more to help the president’s health while in office, and revealed some strategies used to add vegetables to the president’s diet. This is a real quote from the man who was the actual doctor for the actual president of the United States: ‘We were working on his diet.
