Trump: Probably the Healthiest Candidate Ever.

This is fantastic stuff.

Donald Trump: Heart health better than expected. Must not embrace bacon like we thought.

So, Donald Trump's personal physician either talks just like the Republican Presidential candidate or he didn't actually write this and just signed off on it. From NPR:
"If elected, Mr. Trump, I can state unequivocally, will be the healthiest individual ever elected to the presidency," said Dr. Harold N. Bornstein, a gastroenterologist from Lenox Hill Hospital in New York.
I don't know why, I just find this to be hilarious. I guess a couple different things play into it.

1.) Did anybody out there really not vote for John McCain because of his age?

2.) How could any doctor possibly know the medical records of all president's dating back in history?

3.) Trump is so over the top... and I guess "true to his brand" that I should've expected something like this but didn't.

Oh, and of course, there's that whole "the doctor who Trump said wrote this report died in 2010" thing... 

Dead or alive, the hyperbole wasn't limited to just the summary from above. Dr. Bornstein signed off on quips such as:

  • "his [Trump's] blood pressure and laboratory results were astonishingly excellent"
  • "his [Trump's] physical strength and stamina are extraordinary"
  • "he has no history of ever using alcohol or tobacco products"
You've got to love politics and silliness, right? I hope Trump stays strong so we get more of this sort of thing muddying the waters for the next 11 months. (That's a sincere wish, btw. It's too good not to want more of it).
