Well, in a completely expected turn of events, Donald Trump’s campaign has announced that he will not be releasing his medical records on the Dr.Oz show this week. NBC reported:
Donald Trump will not release his medical records or the results of his physical examination on “The Dr. Oz Show,” the campaign said Wednesday.
The campaign said Monday the medical information will be released “this week” but on Wednesday the campaign said the information will be released “soon.”
Instead of releasing his medical records on Thursday, Dr. Oz said the presidential candidate will be talking about his “health regiment.” Campaign spokeswoman Hope Hicks told CNNMoney that Dr. Oz will not be reviewing the candidate’s latest physical. She said that handing over the records to Oz was “considered, given the timing and platform,” but the plan was “never finalized.”
Earlier this week the Republican presidential candidate said that he would release the results of his latest physical on the television show, Thursday. The campaign only announced that it was going to release his long-awaited medical records after Hillary Clinton revealed that she had pneumonia. During an appearance on Fox & Friends Monday, Trump confirmed that he would be on Dr. Oz Thurday and said he would release “very, very specific numbers” from a physical exam he claimed to have taken last week.
The only thing we know about Trump’s health is that the gastroenterologist he has been seeing for more than 3 decades has said that he will be the most healthy president ever in American history if he were elected. Why he has been seeing a digestive specialist for decades is still unknown.
Like most….okay, all…like ALL things Trump promises, he is now walking back his vow to be transparent about his health and now his medical records seem to be going to same way as his tax returns.
