During President Trump’s first term in office, a number of doctors, of varying credentials, have attempted to perform a long-distance diagnosis of President Trump, often in a manner that draws doubt upon the Commander in Chief’s faculties.
This feels nearly unprecedented in our modern age, and is possibly just another symptom of the barely fictional disorder known colloquially as “Trump Derangement Syndrome”.
That speculation was given a wide berth this week after Donald Trump made a surprise visit to Walter Reed Hospital. The President quickly wrote off the concerns, stating that he was simply fulfilling a piece of his yearly physical, taking advantage of a slow day at the White House.
Many on social media weren’t buying it, however, and the speculation continued unabated within the mainstream media.
That’s when CNN allowed a former White House physician to provide some uncalled-for conjecture.
Dr. David Scheiner expressed concern over President Donald Trump’s health, and skepticism surrounding his unannounced visit to Walter Reade Hospital last weekend. The White House has described the visit as routine, which Scheiner dismissed as “absolute balderdash” during a Monday evening interview with Outfront anchor Erin Burnett.
“Maybe he had chest pain,” he Dr. suggested, adding “Maybe he had some neurologic — I think he is someone who has some neurological issues which no one has ever really addressed.”
“He is having trouble word-finding when he said united shush instead of the United States. These are words, he can’t find them,” Schneider noted. “This is happening over and over again. Comedians joke about it. It’s not a joking matter. I think there’s a neurological issue that’s not being addressed. If he had an MRI of his head over there, I would be very pleased. I think he needs it.”
This has long been a tactic of the radical left, perhaps in hopes of employing a bizarre scheme involving the 25th Amendment to somehow remove the President and undo the 2016 election.
