It was hilarious watching the mainstream media refuse to accept President Trump’s physician’s declaration that the president is healthy as the proverbial horse, physically, and mentally. It was yet another instance of those in that media appearing unhinged.
Dr. Ronny Jackson, who has served as presidential physician since 2013, said the president is in “excellent” health, and is mentally fit, though he did recommend the Commander-in-Chief lose a few pounds. This news shocked and saddened the mainstream media, which reacted with stunned denial. Various and sundry outlets and commentators talked of Trump’s BMI (body mass index), and his “bad” cholesterol. More than one speculated that he was ripe for a heart attack, with CNN’s Sanjay Gupta flatly stating that the president has heart disease. Gupta has never examined the president, but, hey, if it feels good, say it, right? I’m surprised one of them hasn’t claimed that the president has Dengue Fever, Cedar Apple Rust, or erectile dysfunction.
The president, an avid golfer who Sports Illustrated called the best golfer of any president in history, has been pestered by questions about his health since he announced he was a candidate for the Republican presidential nomination. In December of 2015, Dr. Harold N. Bornstein of Lenox Hill Hospital in Manhattan stated: "If elected, Mr. Trump, I can state unequivocally, will be the healthiest individual ever elected to the presidency." But no physician’s proclamation will ever deter anti-Trumpers from their cherished delusions, just as a total lack of evidence will never convince them that Trump didn’t collude with Russia. And just as all the evidence in the world won’t convince them that the Obama administration, the DNC, or the Clinton Foundation did.
Members of the Fourth Estate, many of them overweight themselves, have recently: obsessed over the president’s predilection for diet sodas and cheeseburgers, accused him of overfeeding decorative carp, openly wondered if he was crazy or has early-onset Dementia, and questioned his intelligence. They have been joined in this endeavor by numerous professors and countless numbers of the establishment elite…of both parties. A few of the latter have compared him or his actions to Joseph Stalin, Adolf Hitler, Mao Zedong, and other such totalitarian luminaries. Republican Senator Jeff Flake also chastised the president for saying that the media are the “enemy of the people,” something the president never said. Trump actually tweeted, “The FAKE NEWS media is not my enemy, it is the enemy of the American people.” That is a huuuge difference, indeed.
The New York Times has had to retract several news stories, and ABC’s Brian Ross was suspended for an astounding error in reporting involving the Trump administration. When members of “The View” received notice of the report before it was discredited, believing that it could get the president impeached, they waved it around in giddy disbelief, as if it were a winning lottery ticket.
Who wouldn’t be thrilled to see their president impeached? Who wouldn’t be actively rooting for the death of their own duly elected leader?
So, who is unhealthy, who is unstable, unhinged, insane?
To each and every one of the ignorant and despicable armchair doctors across the land, I say: “(Pseudo) physician, heal thyself.”
