"If elected, Mr. Trump, I can state unequivocally, will be the healthiest individual ever elected to the presidency," Bornstein wrote.
Asked how he could justify the hyperbole, Bornstein said, "I like that sentence to be quite honest with you and all the rest of them are either sick or dead."
Trump’s Doctor Has An Amazing Explanation For That Bizarre Medical Report
He says he only spent five minutes writing the note.
In an interview with NBC airing Friday, Bornstein said he spent “five minutes" on the letter while a car sent by Trump waited for him outside his office in Manhattan.
“I get rushed and I get anxious when I get rushed, so I try to get four or five lines done as fast as possible," Bornstein explained. “In a rush, I think some of those words didn’t come out exactly the way they were meant."
The doctor stood by his assessment of the reality TV star’s wellness.
“His health is excellent, particularly his mental health," says the gastroenterologist.
Reading all this I'm wondering who has a gastroenterologist as their personal physician.
Then to have a gastroenterologist make a mental health judgement call seemed, ah shall I say a bit odd.
Then just to be sure I googled gastroenterologist and it all became totally clear
"Diseases affecting the gastrointestinal tract, which include the organs from mouth to anus,"
Well hell, that pretty well describes who The Trump is. So fine, a nutter pooper doctor is perfect. I stand corrected. ;-)
