Since previous attacks on the president have all but completely failed, the left has tried a new tactic of declaring President Trump insane. They have attempted to convince people that he has dementia, Alzheimer’s, heart disease, and other horrible things. So to put everything to rest President Trump underwent a physical, released the results, and even has his doctor take questions from the media. As Rear Admiral Ronny Jackson described the clean bill of health he gave the president you could feel the disappointment in the room from the left-wing journalists. This will not end speculation by them since their Trump Derangement Syndrome is beyond repair, but it will end speculation by anyone on the fence about Trump’s health.
Dr. Jackson answered questions from the media for almost an hour. During this time the media reached a new low, embarrassing themselves in shameful fashion. And while they tried to pin the president as ‘insane’ his doctor hit back hard:
Bloomberg’s Shannon Pettypiece brought up the media-obsession over Trump supposedly slurring his words, but ABC’s Cecilia Vega spoke moments later with this bewildering question:
“Could you just elaborate in layman’s terms, if possible, and you’ve done a great job at that, what you ruled out in these cognitive tests? You know, there have been reports the president has forgotten names, that he’s repeating himself. Are you ruling out things like early onset Alzheimer’s? Are you looking at dementia-like symptoms?”
Dr. Jackson hit back, noting that Trump’s cognitive test was the same one that’s often used at Walter Reed (the Montreal Cognitive Assessment) and since “the president got 30 out of 30 on that exam, I think that, you know, there’s no indication that he has any kind of cognitive issues.”
CBS News Radio correspondent Steven Portnoy brought up the 25th Amendment, gushing over how “[a] lot of people in the country have been talking about it” and after explaining it in some detail, asked about what point from a “philosophical” standpoint would he “advise the cabinet that the president is unable to discharge his duties.”
The 25th Amendment has been noted on a number of left-wing media outlets like MSNBC and CNN. Since their push for impeachment has fallen apart, they have told their audiences that Trump’s cabinet is worried about his health and may remove him from office. Dr. Jackson fielded a question about this and deemed it absurd saying the president is fit for duty. He also said Trump is “very sharp” and he had “no concerns” about his cognitive abilities.
The questioning reached a high point of embarrassment when ABC News reporter Jonathan Karl asked, “Can you explain to me how a guy who eats McDonald’s and fried chicken and all the Diet Cokes and who never exercises is in as good of shape as you say he’s in?”
“I told the president if he had a healthier diet over the last 20 years, he might live to be 200 years old. I mean, he has incredible — he has incredible genes. If I didn’t watch what I ate, I wouldn’t have the cardiac and overall health that he has.
“So he’s very healthy despite those things, and I don’t think that he does that any more. I mean, you know, he’s in the White House now. He’s eating what they’re — what the chefs are cooking for him now, and they’re cooking a much healthier diet for him now. We’re going to continue to work on that, make that even healthier. I would say the answer to your question is he has incredibly good genes, and it’s the way God made him.”
Now that these attacks on President Trump’s health have hit a wall, look for a new line of attack against the president. It will undoubtedly be personal, because when it comes to policy, the Democrats don’t have a leg to stand on.
