Former surgeon general for the Trump Administration Jerome Adams has revealed he has struggled to find a job in ‘left-leaning’ academia – and claimed the White House made him delete his wife’s post as she recovered from cancer.

Adams, 48, and his wife, Lacey, 46, told the Washington Post that, what they’ve described as the ‘Trump Effect,’ has followed them from DC to their home in suburban Indianapolis.

The pair said the effect followed Adams to job interviews, where he would receive ‘polite rejections’ from university officials worried that someone who worked for former U.S. President Donald Trump would be badly received.

Two years after Adams left office as the 20th surgeon general in the U.S. the couple have said they are feeling it even more acutely since Trump announced he will run for president again.

‘[Trump is] a force that really does take the air out of the room,’ said Adams.

‘The Trump hangover is still impacting me in significant ways [and the 2024 Trump campaign] will make things more difficult for me.’

Adams and his wife, Lacey, believe that they have been affected with what they have dubbed the ‘Trump Effect’ for the past two years since Adams left the administration

Prior to his appointment, Lacey had said she ‘hated Trump’ and did not want her husband to leave his life in Indiana, worried there would be a ‘lasting stigma.’

Adams has felt his image sealed as Trump’s surgeon general, bearing the brunt of the highly-criticized early White House response to the coronavirus pandemic.

The 48-year-old believes other surgeon generals were less intensely identified with the president who appointed them.

‘It was a lot harder than he thought to find a landing spot because of the Trump Effect,’ Lacey said.

For eight months after leaving office, Jerome could not find a job.

The couple started to worry about how they would support their three children, especially since Lacey did not work outside the home.

Adams said people were ‘afraid’ to touch anything associated with the controversial former U.S. president who, notably made history being impeached, twice.

But added that he was ‘not complaining’ but rather providing ‘context’ to his predicament.

Adams claims he was also requested to take down a photo posted by his wife when she discovered she had cancer, in which she took a swipe at the administration

While Adams had gone to Washington hoping to focus on opioid addiction, he was instead thrust into a much more public role, which would in turn affect his reputation and his family.

In 2018, doctors discovered a tumor, between the size of a pea and a grape, in Lacey – eventually removing 12 lymph nodes, some of which were cancerous.

Posting a selfie at the medical center to her Facebook page, Lacey took the opportunity to take a dig at the administration.

Adams claims he was requested to remove the post immediately.

In the months to come, Lacey came to believe she had beaten cancer and underwent a year of immunotherapy treatments.

As the Trump administration struggled with effective responses to the pandemic, the new surgeon general kept setting off firestorms.

He told African Americans, who were contracting COVID-19 in disproportionate numbers, to take precautions to protect their ‘Big Mama.’

Adams requested people not to buy masks amid the pandemic, because there was a shortage.

And he pushed the Trump Administration theory that people were at greater risk of catching the regular flu than coronavirus, a projection later shown to be inaccurate.

This summer, tests revealed that Lacey’s cancer had returned. But with it, the pair have seen a shift from the ‘Trump Effect’ they both hope will be permanent

These missteps, which Adams has blamed on the partisan nature of the administration, has drawn heavy criticism.

On social media, trolls called his family ugly and criticized Adams, who is Black, for marrying a White woman.

In July 2020, Lacey discovered her tumor was back after receiving clear scans in January that year.

The cancer had returned for a second round, this time it was Stage 4. She started immunotherapy and again beat it.

For two years she passed routine scans, with good results. Then, this past summer, tests revealed that the cancer had returned.

The other day, her husband asked if he could post a photo of her on twitter which showed her in profile, lying in bed with the covers partly obscuring her face.

Bracing for the barbs, the two were surprised by the overwhelmingly positive responses, when Adams posted a photo of Lacey to twitter.

‘I don’t agree with your politics. God bless your sweet wife,’ one user said.

‘I’m sorry your wife has cancer, even though I completely disagree with some of your decisions,’ said another.

Some people even wanted advice: ‘Should we worry about a single mole or look for odd shapes and changes in several?’

The pair hoping the shift, would be a permanent one.
