We know Donald Trump lies. We know he lies all the time. But this one is a doozy.
Trump’s crazy doctor, Dr. Bornstein, issued another letter, detailing Trump’s health. The letter said (you can see the actual letter below):
“Mr. Trump was hospitalized only once, as a child of 11 years old for an appendectomy. Mr. Trump’s laboratory results reveal the following: Cholesterol 169, HDL cholesterol 63, LDL cholesterol 94, triglycerides 61, PSA 0.15, blood pressure 116/70, blood sugar 99 and C Reactive Protein UQ 0.7. His liver function and thyroid function tests are all within the normal range. He has had an annual physical exam in the spring of every year. His last colonoscopy was performed on July 10, 2013, which was normal and revealed no polyps. His calcium score in 2013 was 98. His EKG and chest X-ray on April 14, 2016, were normal. His cardiac evaluation included a transthoracic echocardiogram on December 16, 2014. This study was reported within the range of normal. His testosterone is 441.6. There is no family history of premature cardiac or neoplastic disease. He takes a lipid lowering agent (rosuvastatin) and a low dose aspirin. He does not use tobacco products or alcohol.”
Now, everything stated above is good. His labs are good, and it appears he takes care of his preventable health.
Trump stated he is 6’3″ and weighs 236 pounds (which is disputable). At 236 pounds, Trump is considered obese. A normal BMI for someone of his height, says the CDC’s BMI calculation, is between 18.5 and 24.9. Above 30 is in the obese range.
When asked about his health, Trump said, “People are amazed because I don’t get much with the colds.” Sometimes, he admitted, he got hay fever, but not often anymore. Get much with the colds? LOL.
Now here is my favorite part.
Trump said that he is as strong as Tom Brady, the quarterback for the New England Patriots.
Dr. Oz asked Trump daytime TV softballs, including, when you look in the mirror, how old do you feel? Trump said he feels about 35. He added that he’s friends with Tom Brady and when the two play golf, he feels the same as Tom Brady.
Shall we look at a comparison?
