    I cringed and wanted to hide under my bed when I saw this interview with the Donald's doctor who prepared his comical "medical" letter. You decide for yourselves. LOL!

    "I get anxious when I get rushed" (especially when I'm coerced into rustling up a medical statement for a presidential nominee, in just 5 minutes). - lol

    right but not just that, because right before that he says "I thought about it all day"

    So what was he thinking of all day, his diagnosis? Or perhaps the coercion wording of the "request" to write the letter. And then he might have put off doing it all day hoping it would go away until Trump sent the car for the letter (ya know, right before his horse's head would have wound up in his bed).

    HEALTH QUESTIONS FLIP BACK TO TRUMP AS DOCTOR ADMITS SLAPDASH LETTER

    Bornstein's letter is heavy on Trumpian adjectives and light on medical specifics. As Newsweek's Kurt Eichenwald noted: "It is one of the most ridiculous documents ever to emerge in any political campaign. First, the letterhead is in the same font as the letter, which appears to have been created using Microsoft Word...The letter also has problems with sentence structure and major typographical errors, such as the opening line, 'To Whom My Concern.' Most amusing, it says that his medical examination of Trump has 'only positive results.' In medical terms, if the test is positive, it confirms the existence of disease. Is this doctor saying Trump has every medical ailment that could be found in examination? Does he not know the meaning of the word?"

    Did Trump University ever grant a medical degree?

    Didn't Duke, in Doonesbury, run an off-shore medical school?

    Where are Gary Trudeau and Jon Stewart when we need them?!

    Trump's personal doctor reminds me of the half-mad Dr. Okun from the movie "Independence Day".

    Presumably the medical profession in the US has some equivalent of the General Medical Council here in the UK, which is responsible for setting professional standards and taking disciplinary action where appropriate. I'd be amazed if Trump's doctor doesn't end up under investigation, given that, by his own admission, he threw together this hyperbolic mess of a medical report under pressure from Trump. Then there's his claim about Clinton, which is either a lie or an improper disclosure - either way, it's an alleged breach of professional conduct: “I know her physician, and I know some of her health history, which is not so good.”

    Penning Donald Trump’s enthusiastic clean bill of health in five minutes may have been one of Dr. Harold Bornstein’s least consequential mistakes. In 2002, he paid $86,250 to the husband of a former patient to settle a lawsuit alleging that Bornstein overmedicated his wife with powerful, unneeded prescriptions, which contributed to her addiction—and ultimately her death.

    The 2002 lawsuit is one of three malpractice claims brought against Trump’s longtime gastroenterologist since 1992, two of which allege the doctor improperly administered powerful drugs which led to the death of patients. Both of those cases were settled before jury trials, with no finding of liability against Dr. Bornstein...

    ...Medical experts reached by The Daily Beast questioned the professionalism of such a letter, and Bornstein’s explanation.

    “It just isn’t done. It’s unprofessional, unethical, and violates basic common sense,” said Arthur Caplan, founding director of the Division of Medical Ethics at NYU Langone Medical Center.

    A gastroenterologist should not be offering an assessment of Trump’s overall health. He should certainly be doing it in tandem with other experts or someone who is a generalist. If he was commenting on Trump’s guts it might make some sense.”

    Bornstein told NBC News that Trump’s overall health is “excellent—especially his mental health.”

    “Beyond that,” Caplan continued, “you don’t do an assessment in a few minutes, and you don’t do it without having the person in front of you. You don’t write a letter without examining the patient.”

    In his letter, Bornstein included Lenox Hill Hospital in his signature. When reached for comment by The Daily Beast, a spokesman for Lenox Hill stressed that Bornstein is not actually employed by the hospital...


    The best people.

    Here in the US, we have these things called "doctor-patient confidentiality" and "physician-patient privilege." In simple terms, these concepts (the latter being a legal one) protect the privacy of communications between a patient and his/her doctor. There's also this statute called Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act or HIPAA, which protects a patient's medical information, violations of which are subject to criminal and civil penalties and sanctions. If it is true that Trump's doctor has medical information about HRC, regardless of how infinitesimal, the question then becomes from where did he obtain it. That, in and of itself, ought to be rigorously investigated.

    Is he over-medicating Trump?

    Interesting. The guy is clearly out of his depth. He probably spends his days contentedly over-medicating Park Avenue 'ladies who lunch' - and then, out of the blue, Trump turns his life upside down with a demand for an instant presidential nominee health report.

    edit to add: ^^damn, you beat me to it. I was looking for just the right youtube.

    This is a guy with three major charges of malpractice against him--one paid by judgment, two settled--so no one in their right mind would be using him for anything serious, right? Yet the quack can afford his Park Avenue rents? Gee, I wonder how that works.
