Remember back in 2015 when everyone was bemused by the odd letter from Dr. Bornstein, Trump's doctor? All the superlatives and he'd be the healthiest man ever elected president? Sounded very Trumpian, but when we got a look Dr. Bornstein, we thought, well, he looks like a guy who might have written that.

And then there was Dr. Ronny Jackson's glowing report about Trumps amazingly wonderful health. He also said that his assessment was based on just that one physical examination because he didn't have access to Trump's medical history.

Now we find out that Trump had his bully boys go to Bornstein's office take his medical records, even the ones filed under an alias. I have heard on TV that medical records belong to the physician, though patients can have access to and make copies of their own. So, I guess that wasn't exactly legal. Plus, the good doctor said that Trump dictated the letter. Suruprised?

When questioned, Sarah Huckabee replied that it was standard operating procedure to transfer the medical records to the White House physician.

So why didn't Dr. Jackson have access to them? I bet Trump has them in a safe at Maralago.

You had to be severely ignorant NOT to have known Trump wrote that letter at the time. His writing style stands out like the elephant in the room. Nobody who writes like that could have gotten through medical school, or even gotten in to begin with. It also included things a medical doctor would NEVER say, like "all test were positive". Tests are supposed to be negative! Positive would mean he has cancer, TB, syphilis, etc.

This was a classic dummy test: Dummies are too stupid to recognize dumb writing.

Good point. Trump does seem to think that he is smarter than we are. Of the minority of Americans who support him, some believe him and some recognize his lies but don't care. All politicians lie, they think. Not to this degree, I'm thinking.

Heck, Trumps altitude, as measured and reported by Ronnie Johnson, would make him taller than Obama. Yet lots of photos say that ain't so. Didn't think we'd notice.

Fragile, fragile ego. Zero degree of honesty. Holy cow! I just realized how many admirable characteristics he lacks. Y'all know them; I won't list them.

ALL of them!

I think Trump probably was normal intelligence or slightly above average when he was younger. Just look at old video tapes of interviews. Twenty years ago he had a much larger vocabulary and was much more articulate. Now he can't even recall simple words and has to coin new words like "bigly". That's a sure sign of a brain disorder. Everybody who cares for patients with brain problems like Alzheimer's recognizes the symptoms.

Could be. It could also be the same dementia his father suffered from. I really think his best option at this point is to claim Diminished Capacity and resign for health reasons. That would probably get him off the hook for all of his felonious acts and avoid prison. Wouldn't help any of his people though. The investigation would continue. Remember 40 people were convicted for Watergate and that was just one simple political burglary.

Y'all know what happens when you lie to your doctor, right? Sooner or later Trump's medical deception will catch up to him. Frankly, it can't be soon enough, for me. A stroke or heart attack would do it. Then, fakephysician, heal thyself!
