His EKKKG Is Yooogely Awesome



From the Daily Beast:
Trump's Medical Report Is More Insane Than His Campaign Somehow

Donald Trump’s doctor released a medical report so silly that when we asked the American Medical Association about its language, their spokesman started to laugh.

Donald Trump’s doctor appears to be just as bombastic as he is.

It’s the only conclusion to be drawn from a hilariously bizarre letter that the mogul’s doctor—Harold Bornstein—wrote about his yuuuugely terrific health. And the letter raises as many questions as it answers.
...

“I am proud to share this health report, written by the highly respected Dr. Jacob Bornstein of Lenox Hill Hospital,” the mogul tweeted, linking to the letter.

Trump later deleted the tweet, probably because Jacob Bornstein is dead. Harold Bornstein, however, is very much alive and says Donald Trump is the picture of health. In the letter, he describes his health over the past few decades using language that veers from standard to bizarre.

For example, he describes Trump’s recent physical exam as “show[ing] only positive results.”
...

Bornstein also describes Trump’s “laboratory test results” as “astonishingly excellent” (without noting which tests were run). That is a weird thing to say, as not many doctors would describe themselves as “astonished” at their patient’s lab results...


Yeah, it's already been reported everywhere, but once the title alighted in my mental in-box I could not resist.

Hmmmm. The dystopian futures of Idiocracy, Robocop, and Blade Runner seem to be creeping in on yoooge little cat feet.
Someday, as we are "putting food" on our grandchildren they will be asking "What's satire again and how does it exaggerate reality? i don't see the difference."

Any reports on the medical conditions that allowed the patient to qualify for medical deferment to avoid military service during the Viet-Nam conflict. Has the yellow fever dissipated?

Yeah. A yuuuuge medical vetting, but no word on those "bone spurs" that kept him out of Vietnam? I do hope he is better so he won't have difficulty climbing in and out of Air Force One.

What a pile of self serving bullshit on both men's part. No doctor with any professional integrity is going to write up a medical report in this manner. Maybe The Donald promised to let him do the wifes' annual.

Lab values are either high, low, or within normal limits. Anything outside of "within normal limits" usually indicates some sort of health problem.

That Yoooge Brother has a doctor trying to describe his lab values as anything other than normal is hilarious and scary at the same time. It's some sort of attempt to portray Yoooge Brother as a superman with super lab values. I'm sure the Yoooge Brother's authoritarian enablers are eating it up.

Interesting times.
