Does Donald Trump Have Some Mysterious Medical Malady?


You have to hand it to Donald Trump: he’s a master showman. When he announced that he would release a full personal medical report on the Dr. Oz show, it was a stroke of genius. The press would eat it up, millions would tune in, and he’d be able to—wait. What’s this?

Donald J. Trump on Wednesday scrapped his previously announced plan to go over results from his most recent physical examination in a taped appearance with the television celebrity Dr. Mehmet Oz, aides to the Republican presidential nominee said.

….The appearance on Dr. Oz’s show, announced on Friday, had been anticipated as a potential breakthrough, as Mr. Trump’s aides had said that over the next few days he would release results from a physical examination taken last week. It was unclear when those results will be available after the change in approach with Dr. Oz.

Oh man, now we really want to know what his doctor found in that examination. Bubonic plague? Gout? Some brand new disease that will be labeled Trump Syndrome? This is either the biggest tease in history, or else Trump’s months-long innuendo campaign about Hillary Clinton’s health has backfired spectacularly. But one thing is certain: we sure as hell all want to see that medical report now.
