Wow, Obama's former doctor is telling @ErinBurnett that Trump is having major neurological problems, especially with "word-finding," and suggests he could be having small strokes.

From @OutfrontCNN: Dr. David Scheiner, Obama's former doctor, says Trump's "inability to say words sometimes worries me tremendously. He is having trouble word-finding… Comedians joke about it, but it's not a joking matter." pic.twitter.com/OlsjEWxV1e

Trumps doctor says that "despite some of the speculation, the President has not had any chest pain, nor was he evaluated or treated for any urgent or acute issues."
"Specifically, he did not undergo any specialized cardiac or neurologic evaluations.” https://t.co/vdX4FwtLBG

I called my physician’s office and asked if she could see me sooner for a physical if I only did half of it now and the rest later, but amazingly the response was not to sweep all obstacles from my path and see me immediately https://t.co/K10Scdaquk

… … and furthermore I think my relationship with her receptionist may be permanently strained.
“Could you see me sooner if I just did half of it and then the other half later?” I asked, and the scheduler patiently began to explain that unfortunately this was not and had never been how physicals worked.
But just because my primary care physician was unaware that this was how things worked, that does not mean that Donald Trump is not aware. He just wanted to see half of what was wrong (nothing), and he will go back later when he has a free moment. He did the important half of the physical — the doctor banged his knee with the tiny hammer but did not check to see whether it made his leg kick, took his systolic but not his diastolic blood pressure, measured half his height, and discovered that he weighs just slightly over 120 pounds! That all seems great. The results are back, and half of him is 100 percent fine!…
Although when Hillary Clinton coughed, ever, it meant that she was at the brink of death (this is medical science; her humors were out of balance, and her womb was roving through her body), Donald Trump’s sudden decision to just go to visit a doctor and do half his annual physical is not cause for concern. His word is good. He has as many white blood cells as he had people at his inauguration, and his blood pressure is as low as his poll numbers aren’t. He would never lie to us about something important…
I am only half concerned.
