One of the most stunning arguments I had with a friend during the 2016 presidential election season was over the relative health statuses of the candidates.
You might remember that Hillary Clinton appeared off-balance following a September Eleventh remembrance in 2016, near the end of it, and that she was later diagnosed with and treated for pneumonia. My friend was telling me that what she heard was that Hillary Clinton was having mini-strokes every day of her life, that she was dying, and that she was lying about her health.
To make a long story short, I compared and contrasted Clinton’s official health disclosure with Trump’s. I did so in some detail. I provided a link to Clinton’s full disclosure and a picture of Trump’s doctor Harold Bornstein. What we know now about Trump’s disclosure is that it was as bull-shitty as it sounded, and that Bornstein later claimed Trump had dictated the bullshit medical disclosure himself and, as a bonus, that Trump’s men had raided his office and taken any records to do with the Impeached Preznit Carnage Wannabe Dictator Boobieface.
And at some point throughout that process, he went on Dr. Oz? What?
So, here we are now, same shit, different election season.
Remember that time in November 2019 when Impeached Preznit Dear Leader was shang-hai’d off to Walter Reed? And later on they were like oh no, that weren’t nothin’, it’s just part of a checkup? A weird checkup that requires an emergency transport to the hospital despite adequate medical facilities on-site and several hours in the hospital?
So a reporter named Michael S. Schmidt is releasing a book called Donald Trump V. the United States, and in this book he broke a bit of news, a little detail we did not previous know: Not-Yet-Impeached Vice President Pence was put on notice that day that he might have to be preznit.
Impeached Trumpenstein is of course denying that, denying one of the most scooping reporters the New York Times has.
Which brings me to my real point: Germans love David Hasselhoff.
Just kidding. I brought up all of this crap to point something out: Joe Biden has released his medical disclosure.
And while it does not say that Biden “…will be the healthiest individual ever elected to the presidency,” it does state Biden is a “healthy, vigorous, 77-year-old male, who is fit to successfully execute the duties of the Presidency to include those as Chief Executive, Head of State and Commander in Chief.”
The assessment, which you can go online and read, seems to be honest and straightforward (though I personally never made it through my first year of residency). If you have questions about his mental acuity, his fitness, his health generally, yeah, the guy was treated for brain aneurysms and he has some acid reflux issues. There it is for you, bulleted and signed by Kevin C. O’Connor, D.O., FAAFP.
They still won’t tell you why Trump was rushed to the hospital nearly a year ago.
