Trump won't let us see his taxes and he won't let us see his medical records, either, but his doctor doesn't seem worried because "that's why we have a Vice President." Welcome to Trump Bizarro World where, in addition, well-known psychiatrists are questioning the President-elect's mental stability (with GOOD REASON).
Donald Trump's Doctor: 'If Something Happens To Him, Then It Happens To Him'
Things that American voters don't know about President-elect Donald Trump: The truth.
And that includes the truth about the health of our incoming commander-in-chief. While Trump and his team made the health and stamina of Hillary Clinton a huge issue throughout the campaign, they don't think his own health matters are anyone's business. So like his taxes, he won't be releasing his medical records either.
In a one-on-one interview with STAT News published Wednesday, Bornstein said, "If something happens to him, then it happens to him. That's why we have a vice president and a speaker of the House and a whole line of people. They can just keep dying."
Bornstein hasn't seen his famous patient since the election, but that response seems a far cry from that glowing letter Bornstein wrote about the then-candidate's health, claiming that "If elected, Mr. Trump, I can state unequivocally, will be the healthiest individual ever elected to presidency."
Now all he has to say basically is if he dies, he dies? Yeah, well, Dr. Bornstein may not be worried about our President-elect's health, but we damn well are. And not only his physical health. In a letter written to President Obama,three professors of psychiatry, including Judith Herman of Harvard Medical School, also called Trump's mental stability into question.
The letter read, in part:
"We are writing to express our grave concern regarding the mental stability of our President-Elect. Professional standards do not permit us to venture a diagnosis for a public figure whom we have not evaluated personally. Nevertheless, his widely reported symptoms of mental instability - including grandiosity, impulsivity, hypersensitivity to slights or criticism, and an apparent inability to distinguish between fantasy and reality - lead us to question his fitness for the immense responsibilities of the office."
So not only is Donald Trump unqualified for the presidential position, he may also be physically and mentally unfit. Unfortunately for America, we won't be finding out until after January 20th.
