    Sounds like a good doctor to me... (5.00 / 1) (#1)

    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.

    And, swaggers away to look under rocks and all that for that elusive "dirt" on Clinton.  That the so-called Doctor, who signed the hopped-up Trump paragraph eval, might have credibility issues ... well, says the media, time to move on and all that.  After all, why expect any credible info about the status of presidential candidate Trump's health! Why would Trump's health have any relevance to anything? If we pursue the matter further, for goodness sake, it could get in the way of Trump's accusatory fantasy about HRC's stamina ...and all that :)

    The stuff about Hillarys health (5.00 / 2) (#15)
    by CaptHowdy on Tue Aug 30, 2016 at 02:36:56 PM EST
    Seens classically Rovian to me.   As they attacked John Kerry's military record to distract from Ws they go on about her health so any questions about his can be easily deflected.   They have very successfully made useful idiots of the media.   Even more so than usual in this case I think.  

    Even tho it's now often mentioned Hillary has disclosed far more than Trump I over heard concerned chatter about Hillarys health in the supermarket yesterday.  No mention of his.

    In this case the funny part was even tho they had successfully planted the story about Hillary in their minds the conclusion was that even if she died we would be better off with Kaine.

    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.

    I'm far from the only one, who always suspected that Donald Trump wrote that letter himself. Take for example Oliver Chinyere who on Hillary Clinton's website gives this both hilarious and still perfectly accurate review of the letter: Donald Trump got a clean bill of health from a physician who sounds remarkably like Donald Trump.

    Should prompt the msm to accuse Hillary Clinton of being out of line describing Donald Trump in a totally unfair way. Saying things like 'We know you are, but what is he!' Or something similar ...
