Remember all those Yes-men that we keep reminding you that Trump is surrounded by?
Since the Trump campaign (and for the sake of being perfectly transparent, the writers here at RedState, on some smaller scale) has made Hillary Clinton’s health a campaign issue, it seems to be all anyone can talk about.
Both candidates are in the same age range. Hillary Clinton is 69 and Trump is 70, so at that age and given the stressful rigors of the presidency, health is a valid campaign issue.
In December of 2015 Trump’s health was brought up and he responded by having his personal doctor write a letter, which was later released by the campaign.
NBC conducted an interview with Trump’s doctor about the letter, which he said he wrote in five minutes.
Dr. Harold Bornstein dashed off the letter in December while a limo sent by Trump waited outside his office to collect the document, he told NBC News. The letter said he had been Trump’s personal physician since 1980.
“If elected, Mr. Trump, I can state unequivocally, will be the healthiest individual elected to the presidency,” reads the letter, which is dated Dec. 4, 2015, and was released by the Trump campaign days later. The letter also says that Trump’s blood pressure and lab results were “astonishingly excellent” and that “[h]is physical strength and stamina are extraordinary.”
And because those Trump surrounds himself with are of impeccable character and can be trusted to be completely open with the public, then a five minute jotting down, as Trump waited in his limo, man of the people that he is, should be enough. I’m absolutely positive that this was following a thorough and recent examination.
“His health is excellent, especially his mental health. He thinks he’s the best, which works out just fine,” he said.
He added, “I think he would be fit because, I think his brain is turned on 24 hours a day.”
I’m glad he tossed in that bit about “…especially his mental health.” I was beginning to worry.
Also, that Trump thinks he’s the best and that his doctor thinks that’s “just fine” should be enough, right?
Most of those with delusions of grandeur and a skewed view of reality feel the same.
And his brain is on 24-hours a day. Which is a relief, because, otherwise, the things the brain controls when it’s on – like breathing – might become a problem.
I’m going to go out on a limb and say Trump’s private doctor has a very private practice, indeed, treating only Trump, and telling him whatever he’s paid to say.
