    NYT: Donald Trump has begun questioning Hillary Clinton’s health, arguing recently that she lacks the “strength and stamina” to lead. When it comes to his own health, however, Mr. Trump has released only a bizarre letter from his doctor Harold Bornstein, which contains little medical detail. Mrs. Clinton has released a more detailed letter. In an interview, Dr. Robert Lahita, a professor of medicine at Rutgers University who has studied the history of presidential ailments, spoke.

    You mentioned before that the doctor’s note released by the Trump campaign was a little unusual. What do you think that note says about the campaign or the candidate?

    Dr. Bornstein came out and said, my candidate, Donald Trump, has the best health of anybody that’s ever run for president, or something to that degree. That’s ridiculous. We need to know more about what his cholesterol level is, whether he’s had an electrocardiogram in the last year, whether he’s had a chest x-ray, the things we would do as doctors for our patients.

    This video is pretty damning against Trump. A rather amateurish fake letter Trump released.

    Anything to divert the attention away from Chillerys heath issues. Anyone who wants to see another corrupt Clinton in the White House, loves America as much as OJ loved Nicole.

    That letter didn't need to be examined, just glanced at to know it's bullshit. Unlike trump who doesn't even require a glance. The smell precedes him.

    NYT: Mr. Trump, who regularly eats fast food and says he does not sleep much or take long vacations, has provided only a four-paragraph statement from his gastroenterologist last December. It contained no details about his heart rate, respiratory rate, cholesterol level, past medications or family medical history. It did include several laudatory declarations, describing Mr. Trump’s blood pressure (110/65) and laboratory test results as “astonishingly excellent.”

    The doctor, Harold N. Bornstein of Manhattan, concluded that Mr. Trump, if victorious, “will be the healthiest individual ever elected to the presidency” — a claim that was widely mocked as unprovable and unscientific.

    Our shared doctor, when he read my husband's lab reports, despite having had heart bypass surgery, 2 full strokes, hip replacement surgery, and other major medical issues, said: "You're gonna live to be 120".

    Sitting there, I said: "Doctor, he's gonna live to be 120? Can I have a second opinion?"

    I got smacked. He always smacks me, because I've got a "smart mouth."

    But I think Trump's doctor also needs to be smacked.

    If we're gonna make a big deal out of medical reports, then maybe The Donald needs to release a lot more info than this laughable thing. Perhaps we've reached the point when all Presidential candidates will need to submit to medical exams by neutral doctors. If such people can be found.

    And while we're at it, also full financial disclosure. Including tax returns, which The Donald also refuses to do. All these attacks on Hillary from the Right, while Trump hypocritically refuses to comply to these same things at all.

    NYT: On Twitter, Trump thanked another doctor — the gastroenterologist’s father and partner in private practice — for writing the letter, then deleted the tweet when it was revealed the doctor had been dead for five years.
