    One that ain't stingy with the good scripts! Though I'd like to know what exactly Trump is scoring through this guy so I can avoid it, the side effects look horrendous. It's clearly not mellowing sh:t.

    I have been posting about this doctor for a while.  i believe Willie Nelson and The Dude are the wrong comparisons.

    But I must take issue with the fact he is a gastroenterologist and is Trumps primary care doctor is a thing.  My primary care doctor is a gastroenterologist.  And I love him.  He is not quite as weird as this guy but he is a bit of a freak.   We spend most of our annual visits talking about Game of Thrones.

    issue with a gastroenterologist as primary care physician.  A gastroenterologist is an internist (internal medicine) who specializes in diseases of gastrointestinal tract.  Gastroenterology training includes residency in internal medicine. Part of that specialization involves procedures for diagnosis and treatment, such as endoscopy and colonoscopy.

    Depending on the practice, a gastroenterologist will deal with the range of primary care medicine, such as diabetes or hypertension as well as GI tract matters.  Or, may focus on the gastrointestinal tract.

    uppers, Trump resembles a meth-head at times, we need to demand that the pees in the cup.

    This "good" doctor is another example of one of the "best" that Trump surrounds himself with.

    Dr. Jacob Bornstein for writing that "to whom my concern (sic)" letter reporting that he had amazing, astonishing health, and was found positive in everything.  Apparently, a report from the beyond, making it all the more astonishingly amazing.   Dr. Jacob Bornstein, was the father of Dr. Harold Bornstein.  Dr. Jacob died in 2010.

    he is any super-rich person's real doctor.  Trump  making an issue out of medical matters with this guy as his front man is almost deliberately a joke.  It just can't be serious.

    line up of doctors, and has probably been over examined since childhood.  He has an eye doctor, we all go in once a year.  Medicare pays for mine.  Does Trump use Medicare?  He's got his GI, Doctor strange, and I'm sure he has an urologist too.  Medicine is so specialized that Trump probably has about ten doctors.  He's looking a bit fleshy too, so he needs to go to that Doctor as well.
