So do we really believe that Trump's doctor's note about his physical is real?

Courtesy of Share Blue:  

Following Donald Trump’s much awaited medical exam on Friday, the White House released a statement purportedly written by the doctor who administered the exam. The note said the exam went “exceptionally well” and pronounced Trump to be “in excellent health.”

There’s just one problem: As Rachel Maddow pointed out Friday night, it appears that the note was not, in fact, written by White House physician Ronny Jackson.

The statement was signed “Dr. Ronnie Jackson,” so unless the White House doctor suddenly forgot how to spell his own name, it would appear that someone else in the White House released the note and put the doctor’s name on it. 

It should also be noted that most medical doctors sign their name, followed by their degree (for example, “Ronny Jackson, MD, FAAEM“), rather than using their title (“Dr.”).

And then there's this.
You know you would think that a White House that lies as often, and as casually as this one does would be better at this sort of thing.

I would think that there must be a ton of reporters working to get an interview with this doctor right now.

And if they are not they are really falling behind on the job.

"Excellent health" my ass.

      7:24 - The problem is that HIPAA laws are very strict regarding the release of a patient's medical information. He can only disclose what he is given permission by the patient to disclose, and you can bet that Trump will not allow him to share any of the accurate and specific results.

      Anon at 9:31pm. Remember that the medical report issued regarding Hillary Clinton was complete - with test results - and mentions of ongoing issues to watch. At this point in his life, Trump has to have a slew of issues, now chronic. Very few people reach their seventies (I know this from personal experience) without some medical issues. Even those of us, who (fortunately) never have to be around him personally, are aware of at least some of them: weight, preferred diet, anger management issues, verbal problems, gait and energy issues, obvious memory issues, hand issues as evidenced by his inability to hold a water bottle with one hand or even pick it up with one hand. And on and on. Many problems are probably age related. But they're there and should be reported on.

      And then there's the tone of the so-called report that is just like the one produced during the 2016 campaign: full of hyperbole and unlikely superlatives. Remember Trump's supposed to be the "healthiest" inhabitant of the White House - ever.

      CBJ is a family practice physician FPP. As such, she can attend the birth of a standard risk pregnancy, like a midwife can. Her real specialty area was/is abused, mostly sexually, children. What she couldn't have done, without much annual competency renewal such as doing c sections to keep up her skills, is attend a high risk pregnancy. She was not qualified. Neither was MtSu regional hospital credentialed for high risk births. So, the whole inducing a high risk pregnancy shit is fraud.
      Sarah nominated CBJ for FPP of the year award, which the doctor won from the FPP group. They should be SO PROUD of the phucking fraud they lauded. The nomination was years before Sarah called on the doctor and told her "YOU OWE ME. Sarah and McCain ran roughshod over her and CBJ never corrected anything.Shame on her.
      Now she no longer acts as an FPP. She continues to act as medical director of ALaska Cares which cares for abused and neglected children.

      President Donald Trump’s White House was caught completely unprepared for Saturday’s false alarm about a missile attack on Hawaii, said Politico.

    Just like SP, it seems that The Donald doesn’t read either.

    “In 2000, when Shiflett co-wrote Trump’s book on politics, a newspaper that was writing about the book asked what author had most influenced Trump. Shiflett said he called Trump’s office to find out what he should tell the reporter, and he was told to pick any writer he wanted to. “So I told them he likes Dostoevsky,” Shiflett said. “It was all just good times; the spirit around him was kind of mirthful. Everybody understood that and nobody took any of it very seriously.”

    Dr. Ronnie's report is too much like the bogus medical report (remember that Trump was the healthiest person ever to seek the presidency?) that got put out during the 2016 campaign. Hillary Clinton produced a genuine 4-page long medical report, with test results, etc. and Trump came up with his doozy of a letter from a doctor (?) who certainly looked like a quack.

    What astounded me in 2016 was that the media lapped up the bogus physician's letter and the same thing will happen again, despite the fact that the tone and language used smack so heavily of Trump's actual and preferred phraseology. He's always the "best" at everything.

    And then there's lots of physical evidence pointing to issues: the quickness to red-in-the-face anger, the dozing during meetings, the problems with his hands (water bottle holding), the excess weight and diet problems, the obvious mental confusion (hearing loss perhaps?), the verbal slurring, etc. Perfectly healthy men, even of Trump's age, don't have those issues at least not on such prominent display for all the world to see. This so-called medical report is a phony again.

    "Excellent health" -- blood tests not completed, so no mention of cholesterol levels, pre-diabetes?, prostate levels.
    Weight -- visual evidence, for all the world to see, is that Two Scoops, who was "overweight" 15 months ago, has packed on the pounds since then. Even if he fudges his height -- which, presumably, his Navy doctor would not do -- he's now obese. Morbidly obese.
    The doctor would advise exercise, a diet of fruits and vegetables, much less caffeine than he gets in his diet sodas, many fewer diet sodas.
    Why does he have that dry mouth? A symptom of other medication he's taking? What medications?

    If that physician is allowed to answer even a half-dozen real questions in the press room on Tuesday -- weight, triglyceride, HDL, LDL, blood pressure, vision, hearing, balance, blood sugar -- well, there are so many questions, but even the basics will belie the "excellent" press release.
    The reporters will be sure to spell the officer's name correctly. LOL.
