Trump’s doctor probably isn’t a doctor. In fact, his doctor might not exist as a person. If he does actually exist there’s a really good chance that the doctor’s name is Donald J. Trump. If that’s all a bit confusing, don’t worry. I explain below. The details on this one are just priceless.
Trump released a letter from “his doctor” a while ago, that sounded like Trump actually wrote the thing. Not only because of the fact most of the letter was bragging about how freakin’ awesome Trump was, but because the actual meat and potatoes of the thing sounded like a 13-year-old kid wrote it as his excuse why he didn’t go to school last Friday.
The letter was given as “proof” of Trump’s superhuman levels of health, vigor, strength, and whatever else you want to call it. It read like Captain America’s physical exam results AFTER he took the super soldier serum.
Here is the original letter from some time ago:
There’s a few really wacky bits of this that I’ll point out below, and then you can decide for yourself how credible this is.
At the bottom of that is a website — www.haroldbornsteinmd.com. I suggest not going to this site, and I’ll explain why. The page seems to flux between either a cyber squatter placeholder page, or a likely health insurance scam site where it asks you to put in just a little personal information to “get started.” If you see this, don’t do it.
Let me put it this way. I clicked on gastroenterology services. The first result was a link that says “how do you do a facelift.” I’m no doctor but even I know those are not related. These are random advertising links that have nothing to do with anything. This website couldn’t be any more non-legit than if there was a picture of a Nigerian prince on it.
From the “Oh my God, are you kidding me?” file, we have what’s probably the most obvious typo to be made in all of human history.
To Whom My Concern. Yup, that’s what it says, alright.
If I was going to write a letter regarding the health of a presidential candidate, I’d proofread it. If I was a Trump staffer writing a fake doctor’s letter about Trump’s health, I’d proofread it. The only person who wouldn’t proofread this is Donald himself. Why? Because he’s so stupidly arrogant that he thinks he doesn’t make mistakes. Remember this is a guy that thinks bankruptcy is good and having debt is an asset.
The “medical” information:
Here we have two perfect examples of stuff you just don’t find in a normal doctor’s note about a person’s health. First off, what the hell does “astonishingly excellent” mean? I used to have high blood pressure personally. I know that 110/65 is good but it isn’t astonishingly good. Perfect blood pressure would be considered nothing more than “normal.”
This isn’t The Limbo. It doesn’t get better based on “how low can you go?” You can have too low of blood pressure too. To put it simply, this is something a normal doctor, or even a weird one, just wouldn’t write in a report.
Then there’s the “test score” comment. No, doctors don’t talk about their patients that way. They would list the physical feature, it’s count, and that would be it. There isn’t a “score” for tests like this. There’s a result.
Added in are other totally irrelevant things like Donald Trump has never had cancer. What does he want, a cookie? The majority of people actually don’t have cancer. A hip replacement means absolutely nothing. Weight loss has jack squat to do with anything. Doctors simply don’t write letters like this.
The doctor’s workplace:
He says he works in Lennox Hill hospital’s gastroenterology “section.” LHH doesn’t have a gastro-whatever “section” but they have a “division” and guess who is not a member of it — If you said Dr. Bornstein, you win.
Can we just stop beating around the bush on this? Trump’s doctor either doesn’t exist, or he didn’t write this letter. Trump wrote it. He didn’t have a staffer write it. He didn’t crib it from an existing one he found online and just edit his name in.
Since everyone wants to suggest that Hillary has multiple systemic health issues that disqualify her for the presidency, now the question should be asked — What’s Donald hiding about his health? Apparently, it’s so bad that he thought this amateur-hour attempt at writing his own doctor’s note was a better option that admitting the truth.
