Daily Beast: Trump's Medical Report Is More Insane Than His Campaign Somehow

DB reports:

Donald Trump’s doctor appears to be just as bombastic as he is.

It’s the only conclusion to be drawn from a hilariously bizarre letter that the mogul’s doctor—Harold Bornstein—wrote about his yuuuugely terrific health. And the letter raises as many questions as it answers....

“It’s very odd for a doctor to say, ‘He’s had a complete medical examination that showed only positive results,’” said Jonathan Moreno, a professor of medical ethics at the University of Pennsylvania. “Normally a positive result in the language of medicine is not a good thing. Nonetheless, I will not accuse Dr. Bornstein of not writing his own letter.”

Bornstein also describes Trump’s “laboratory test results” as “astonishingly excellent” (without noting which tests were run). That is a weird thing to say, as not many doctors would describe themselves as “astonished” at their patient’s lab results....

And then it goes completely off the rails.

“If elected,” Bornstein writes, “Mr. Trump, I can state unequivocally, will be the healthiest individual ever elected to the presidency.”


  1. That's all good, but can the guy bicycle for hours on end in 100 degree weather like Dr. Paul can?

  2. I have astonished my doctors before. I know my dad has too...they reran his blood tests once just because the doctor could believe his chelestrol dropped so much. It was 15 years ago and the effects of moderate exercise weren't widely known at that point.

    Oh and the doctors I am refering to practice at the Mayo clinic.
