With his diet and lack of exercise plus the stress he is under, I had wondered if he was due to have some heart issues. I‘m glad it seems to have been minor.
He looks to me like he has gained a significant amount of weight in the last three years.
Just heard it mentioned this morning, and haven’t read up on it, but it seems the WH is denying that it was anything but a routine medical visit for some tests. They are saying it was part of his routine physical for next year.
Seems odd to go in on Saturday evening in November for some routine testing that’s part of a physical he isn’t due to get until January, but I’m sure the Press Secretary wouldn’t lie to the American people, right?
Depends on how old you are... jk.
Nice way to turn a story about the Potus going in for a medical exam into a stab not just at Trump, but fellow members of the Board.
I saw a report that makes sense: a physician was interviewed on one of the channels and he said that per his last physical his “calcium index” in his arteries had increased from the year before and they had upped his Crestor to counteract it. This was all made public.
This physician said that when a patient is being actively treated for coronary artery disease this way they often want another scan about six months after increasing the meds.
Seems logical and I can see why the WH described it as routine. If that’s what it was.
