Donald Trump’s physician since 1980, gastroenterologist Dr. Harold Bornstein, well, he’s the guy who, in the space of a mere five minutes, wrote a letter describing Trump’s health in glowing terms (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Harold_Bornstein).
Yesterday, Dr. Bornstein said that it was Trump himself who dictated that letter (https://www.cnn.com/2018/05/01/politics/harold-bornstein-trump-letter/index.html, https://www.politico.com/story/2018/05/02/trump-letter-of-health-harold-borstein-565577).
This, when, during the 2016 presidential campaign, Republicans loved claiming that Hillary had health issues.
According to the Stat website, Bornstein really wanted to be named as Trump’s personal physician beginning on January 20, 2017. But Trump decided that Rear Admiral Dr. Ronny Jackson would be his doctor.
Get this: yesterday, Dr. Bornstein told NBC News that on February 3, 2017, three Trump representatives raided his office, taking all Trump’s medical records. Bornstein said that two of those men were Trump’s longtime bodyguard, Keith Schiller, and the Trump Organization’s chief legal officer, Alan Garten.
It gets better: Bornstein says that Trump took a prescription hair growth medicine, following which Trump reportedly cut ties with him.
For Donald Trump, loyalty is everything.
How interesting that the title of wrongly fired former FBI Director James Comey’s book is A Higher Loyalty: Truth, Lies, and Leadership.
Gastroenterologists like Bornstein spend lots of time dealing with peoples’ stomachs.
Unfortunately for Bornstein and for the rest of us, very few sensible voters in America can stomach Trump.
Associate solitary reporter Johanna Jones tells us that there are very, very few physicians who want to be Trump’s doctor now that Dr Jackson is done with Trump.
