You can’t trust the White House on Trump’s health

You can’t trust the White House on Trump’s health 1

 

President Donald Trump, according to the White House, made an unscheduled trip to Walter Reed hospital on Saturday for a "quick exam and labs" as the first stage of his annual physical. But you shouldn't just believe them. Chris Cillizza breaks down why Trump has been less than truthful about his health before — and what it should tell us about what’s going on now.

  1. The battery thing is actual a historical belief that happened in the 1800s. Just thought people would like to know.

  2. Instead of using the safe word “falsehood”, how about we call them what they are… lies.

      We’re running out of synonyms for the word “lie.” For example, review this sentence: “The president lied when he said that the lie he told at his rally really wasn’t a lie but instead was a lie by the lying dems, which was the real lie.” See what I mean? It’s not easy being a writer these days.

    • @trainwreck told ya Your brain is affected with Carlson and Hannity propaganda BS.
      The mix of adderrall or other speed medications with sleeping pills can cause arrhythmia, stroke, memory losses, incoherence etc.,. That is what is said to have brought down Elvis, Michael Jackson and Prince.

    • @Brian Barton You can trust Tucker Carlson to smear a career diplomat in order to cover up for a crooked piece of lying s**t like the commander in thief.

    • @cj p that orange hue around his pie hole. Is a huge clue, chump
      Yet that waistline may besmirch tubby’s been into the sweet-tader pie early.

    • Cnn Hillary and Obama Biden all lie but it’s okay when the left does it

  3. I can’t wait until December 11, when the Inspector General testifies before the Senate, and all those posting negative comments, have to eat their words. LMAOTIHAHA!!!

  4. More hearsay propaganda bull crap. Why should people believe anything on the No.2 propaganda network?

  5. Epstein didn’t kill himself, and Eric Swalwell did fart on live TV.

  6. Lol you want to vote in Bernie/Warren/Biden who are 200+ years old combined

  7. I really care about his health. The unhealthier and closer to death the better. Fox would report that he is the healthiest dead person in history!

    I can’t wait for another four years of Donald Trump. His health will be fine through that presidency as well

  9. This impeachment is dead in the water

    Expect MSM to say different.

    This live by the way. No MSM filter here.

    I don’t trust the white house if it told me it was white, I’ll figure it out

  12. Every one in that house has caught the plague of lying its epidemic

  13. So this is where we are in America with cnn. Impressive.

  14. He’s pressed and stressing about this inquiry… boarder line stroke!!! 🤣🤣

  15. Has anyone heard how much aid is being held up to Ukraine by Pelosi due to this circus. It’s a lot of millions but haven’t heard the exact number.

  16. For making a point about Trump’s supposed bad health. He seems pretty energetic, gives great inspiring speeches.

  17. I don’t trust Bernad concerning his health.

  18. Who cares about his health, it’s his mental condition that should worry people.

      Hang on. He just might have a heart attack and save everyone the trouble of getting him out of the White House.

      Yep. You’re just borderline dull enough to believe this because you don’t even know that 90% of the media is owned by 6 corporations. That’s world news and local news. You need to open your eyes. You are not able to see how the Democrats swiftly move from one narrative to the other? Russian collusion, failed miserably. Meanwhile Obama administration was spying on the Trump campaign. Have you seen all the inconsistencies in Hillary’s speeches? Every Democrat that opposes Trump’s wall once proposed their own wall.. I guarantee you will see many indictments down the road with a lot of high-profile politicians. They’re not all Democrats either. Pedophilia and the sex trafficking trade is a form of blackmail and by the way Epstein didn’t kill himself LOL

    • @Wynter duMaurier I’m guessing his medical team who are probably doing rather well thanks to him .😁

  19. I would never want to eat a thing out of that sinkhole I’ll be too scared that I would get a virus from Trump Administration

  20. Bernie Sanders had a heart attack and Ruth Bader Ginsberg is dying as we speak, but of course CNN isn’t covering that lolol

    • Levi Peterson I’m pretty sure it was very well covered. I live on the other side of the world and saw on CNN about Bernie Sanders’ heart attack and Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s condition.
