I'm a doctor. The real issue isn't Hillary Clinton's health – it's that she might win

    Parkinson’s, seizures, sedatives: wild rumors about the Democratic candidate’s health signal fear among Trump supporters that they’re heading for defeat

    I’m a doctor. I don’t play at being a doctor. I don’t diagnose patients in the absence of unbiased, reliable information, such as performing a physical exam or reviewing tests.

    But the scientist in me understands that the real issue here isn’t Clinton’s health. Conspiracy theories signal fear; in this case, Trump’s realization that Clinton may well be the next president of the United States.

    This is not the first time rumors of illness have been deployed to attack a seemingly untouchable political adversary. At a time when Massachusetts governor Michael Dukakis had a 10-point lead over then vice-president George HW Bush in the polls, reports circulated that Dukakis suffered severe depression after losing his first re-election campaign.

    Even if Chillery was in a coma, the leftards would still deny the truth. The would simply prop her up with a stick. Anyone who wants to see another corrupt Clinton in the White House, loves America as much as OJ loved Nicole.

    Like I said, prove that Clinton is infirm and unable to fulfill the requirements of the US presidency because of her infirmity--with verifiable facts, NOT stupid fiction, illusion or innuendo. If you can prove that, I will vote for Trump, no questions asked. On top of that, I will give anyone on here who can prove, with facts, subject to verification and confirmation, $2,000 if they can prove that she'd be unable to perform her job as president because of her illness. This is not a gimmick, but remember that I am an experienced litigator and I can easily spot fakes and lies.

    No, just you will be, because that's what you've decided. The rest of us will do quite well. I suggest you dig a deep hole to hide in right away.

    Well, is Trump also fair game for charges that he's mentally unbalanced? Quite a number of medical experts have advanced that view.

    And his wild & erratic behavior would lead many reasonable people to consider that possibility. If Hillary's health is gonna be on the table for discussion, I don't see why The Donald's mental health shouldn't be also.

    Given the choice, I'd rather have a President who's infirm than one who's insane. President Franklin Roosevelt had polio and was mostly confined to a wheelchair, and he saved the US from the greatest economic catastrophe in our history, when the country was close to tearing itself apart. And then successfully led us through a world war on 2 fronts.

    Yeah, I'll take infirm over insane. But first prove that Hillary's infirm. While it's becoming more evident every day that Trump's insane.

    Nuts grow on trees.
    Trees are nature.
    Nature is beautiful, and so is Mr Trump.
    He will make the diffrence America has long needed.
    Poor people who voted for the Democrats 50 years ago, are still poor.

    You're nuts for taking the hapless Hillary ho over Donald Trump. If you really knew the truth about this power hungry psychopath known as Hillary rotten Clinton, common sense would tell you to vote either for Trump or any alternative candidate. But obviously you have no common sense and you have proven to me that you are a mindless sycophant to the corrupt, incompetent Democratic Party which is the most unpatriotic, untrustworthy, and unAmerican political party in the USA.

    Ah, no. Many poor were able to complete school and have successful careers. And through many ways that Democrat-authored or promoted programs of many sorts allowed to happen for them.

    Meanwhile, many Republican voters went bankrupt and even homeless during the Bush Recession. Did you conveniently forget about that event?

    Not quite the Great Depression, when people were jumping out of skyscraper windows. But also during a Republican Administration and Congress. What a coincidence. Your total lack of US history knowledge never ceases to amaze me. And then you try to lecture Americans on their own politics. icon_rolleyes.gif

    He's certifiable, as the Brits would say. Or simply a looney, as they'd say in Monty Python.

    In this sense, RJ is a reflection of the real world.
    2 of the craziest people (others might say b*tches) on this system are for Trump.
    'nuff said.

    Hey RBR, tell me how you really feel. I wasn't clear about your response. God help all of us if Donald Trump becomes president, we are going to need it, because we will be going down in flames with him at the helm. The man is a buffoon.

    How about if you take the political caricature down as your profile pic and use your actual image? I would respect your opinion a lot more.

    Fictionist-cum-illusionist Trump's health smear of HRC has backfired and it's biting him in the ass. As I predicted, the media and the public are now focused on Trump's medical status. See http://www.cnn.com/2016/08/25/opinions/trump-clinton-health-obeidallah/index.html.

    Now the doctor who wrote that comical medical letter is under strict scrutiny. Reportedly, that doctor, Dr. Bornstein, wrote his medical evaluation in 5 minutes. Bornstein said he added some hyperbole to the note because "I think I picked up his kind of language and then I just interpreted it to my own." In other words, theDonald told the doctor what to say in his medical evaluation and the doctor paraphrased it. This would be comical if it weren't pathetic. See http://www.cnn.com/2016/08/26/politics/donald-trump-doctor-note/index.html.

    Buh-bye, Donald. #ReleaseYourTax Returns @LittleHandTrump. #ReleaseYourRealMedicalRecords @ LittleHandTrump.

    One is not here for respect, as the socalist leftards hate anything that leans to the right. Thus it would make little diffrence.

    Doubt it.
    Who cares about the pic? It's the text that's crazy.

    What he did say: ""I don't think he's in any better or worse than the average person that goes and exercises every single day," he said. "Doesn't smoke, doesn't drink — and that's simply the best advantage you can have to live — and he's got a good family history."

    ....to a reporter. Quite different than the frothy earlier assessment.

    Doctors discover it's not a wart on Hillary shoulders, someone crapped there.
