      Trump's Medical "Perfection"

      "Healthiest Individual Ever Elected To The Presidency"

      January 13, 2017


      At 71, the oldest president ever elected, overweight, living on a diet of KFC and McDonald's, always demanding that second scoop of ice cream, his only exercise a few steps from the golf cart to the ball, we are told Donald Trump is in “excellent health,” according to a tweet from press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders issued on Friday following the president’s checkup, invoking the name of his White House physician, Dr. Ronny Jackson. (Notice where the quotation marks end.)


      Sarah Sanders@PressSec

      "The President’s physical exam today at Walter Reed National Military

      Medical Center went exceptionally well. The President is in excellent health

      and I look forward to briefing some of the details on Tuesday." Dr. Ronny Jackson


      What may not have been readily apparent was that this tweet was actually damage control, cleaning up an earlier embarrassment in which a brief statement was released, supposedly from Dr. Jackson himself, in which he misspelled his own name as "Ronnie".

      While we do not know what the actual medical evaluation will reveal, or if we'll ever have it made available, a pattern seems to be emerging that goes back to 2015 when Trump first announced his candidacy for president.


      Donald J. Trump@realDonaldTrump

      As a presidential candidate, I have instructed my long-time doctor to

      issue, within two weeks, a full medical report - it will show perfection

      Dr. Harold Bornstein, who had been Trump's personal physician for 35 years, said he wrote a letter declaring Trump would be the healthiest president in history in just five minutes while a limo sent by the candidate waited outside his Manhattan office.

      "His health is excellent, especially his mental health," he said in an interview, although no one at that point had questioned the candidate's mental fitness. The four-paragraph letter, the only medical information released by Trump, declared that, if elected, Trump would be the "healthiest individual ever elected to the presidency".

      Concern about the president's mental fitness, as well as his true physical health, has escalated since the recent publication of Michael Wolff's book "Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House".

      But it seems there's a good chance we'll never see actual evaluations of either.

          Mind boggling how some people believe "news" that comes from a TV. From Fox to CNN these people are wiping themselves with you and laughing about it.

          Looks like Fed policy is taking effect, do we believe bubbles never pop?

              According to Trump, he is mentally stable, very intelligent, not a racist nor misogynistic. And now according to Trump he is in fantastic health.


              And he has stated himself, he is not a liar.

                  Might have been SNL that said one word is not enough to describe health unless you go down each category, perhaps. Like if you went down to his blood type and it read “thick”, it would probably be more accurate than A, B, AB or O.

                      Contrary to Dr. Bornstein's cooked books, best estimates indicate

                      Trump's actual weight to be an obese 280 lbs. at 6' 2" (not 6' 3").

                              Dr. Jackson did NOT issue that statement. The White House issued that statement in the most misleading way imaginable. As far as I can determine, Dr. Jackson has issued no statement at all. But the interesting question concerns what is going on behind the scenes today in anticipation of an actual statement to be released tomorrow (Tuesday).

                              The White House seems determined to advance the position that Trump and his personal physician, Dr. Harold Bornstein, have promoted since 2015, that Trump's health is "perfection", all evidence - diet, weight, lack of exercise - to the contrary.

                              There is every reason to believe that Dr. Jackson will be put under tremendous pressure to either declare Trump's "perfect health" or to suppress the actual results of Trump's physical evaluation. The man is 71, overweight, living on a KFC/McDonald's diet, and admittedly getting very little exercise. Does anyone, anywhere seriously believe that the president could be in "excellent health"?

                              This health "perfection" narrative Trump has been proposing, along with the accompanying Scaramucci-themed narrative of Trump's extraordinary athletic abilities...

                              "I have seen this guy throw a dead spiral through a tire. I've seen him in Madison Square Garden with a topcoat, standing in the key, hitting shots."

                              ... all starts sounding like the mythology created around North Korea's Kim Jong Un, who supposedly shot a 38 under par with 11 hole in one's his first and only time on the golf course.

                              It's called a "cult of personality" and is entirely consistent with the outlandish claims promoted by other dictators past and present.

                                      Excellent compared to a dead man? You got me on that one! I keep hearing early stage alzheimer’s, which is why he is in bed by 6:30, less risk of sun downing in the public eye?

                                          Although the White House has tried to leave the impression that Dr. Ronny Jackson has said Trump is in excellent health, it's deliberately misleading. (Watch the quotation marks in Sanders' tweet.) Dr. Jackson has not commented at all.
