"Due to scheduling uncertainties, the trip was kept off the record," Conley said, describing the checkup as "routine, planned."

cant believe a word that comes from this administrations mouth, too much corruption & convicted criminals to warrant any trust

We elected a 73 year old child with a quick temper. Reports of chest pains isn't surprising. Especially when he is fighting every single person that says something about him.

what? the man can,t go to the hospital anymore? 73 and President of the United States of America, with an incredible amount of pressure (at all times), i,d say he,s doing pretty good.

So you want to elect a 76 year old senior slight dementia Democrat or do you want to vote for a 77 year old unapologetic radical socialist or a 70 year old ethically confused woman that wants to destroy Wall St. and overall US economy? Either way, they’re older and they can barely keep up with Trump.

We say the same about the people trying to undermine the will of the people and duly elected President.

thats what Trumpster still cant get , it wasnt the will of the American people that duly elected him, hes doesnt have majority support pf Americans, does not have majority support of eligible voters and doesnt even have majority support of the people that actually voted, so please stop referring to him as " the will of the people" just more fake lies and propaganda

And the 77 year old unapologetic radical socialist had a heart attack last month. But hey, yeah, he can handle the rigors of the U.S. presidency for the next 4 years. All he has to do is not have any more heart attacks, beat out the other Dems that the DNC has deemed suitable ( Tulsi and Yang not included ), and he's in. No way Trump can beat him in the general - heck, RealClearPolitics is giving him a 7.9 spread over Trump!

No way that Trump will get through this week unscathed with Sondland testifying. Not surprising if Trump does have health issues because all the stress from endless lies is finally catching up with him.

@bass4funk

I am pretty sure all of those people you mentioned would have done have done a better job.

But, I would have felt better electing the initial nomination leader before he was forced to drop out. Yes. I am talking about "Deez Nuts." He had my vote for President in 2016.

2 ( +2 / -0 )

He was stressed, and an overweight, out of shape 72-year-old president with a bad diet being sued, impeached and prosecuted had a mild heart attack, so he covered it up like all the other lies and criminal activity.

It will come out a couple of weeks later that it was another lie.

Well, not surprising Donnie is having heart and neurological issues....

He's under siege - all of his hand-picked team going up to Congress and testifying against him, saying he was engaged in an extortion shakedown of Ukraine.

His best bud Roger Stone is off to the slammer. Testimony in Stone's trial shows Trump lied under oath during Mueller's deposition.

He went and put his reputation on the line in the Kentucky and Louisiana governors races and lost big time - real humiliation...

He keeps losing in court trying to keep his tax records secret...

He had to pay $2 million because he was using a charitable fund for veterans for his 2016 campaign - to buy a 6 foot tall portrait of himself...

That much losing would make anyone a basket case...an orange basket in this case...

Won't be long before he's in the same dirt as all the people he looks down on. This guy won't live to see a few more years, guaranteed. With his McDonald's diet, all-night tweeting rants, dementia, and the stress he gives himself, this was definitely a heart attack in the making. Doesn't matter how much the WH desperately clamours to hide it.

2 ( +2 / -0 )

anyway why is everybody worried about this? do people really care about his health that much? and i,m not talking about his supporters. it ,s almost as if they,re enjoying the fact that he needed to go to the hospital, which is a scary thought. the man is subjected to a lot of pressure and went to the hospital because he,s not Superman. that,s all there is to it.

-2 ( +1 / -3 )

Trump's tweets are growing increasingly reckless: that during former Ambassador to Ukraine Marie Yovanovitch's testimony smacks of intimidation and could end up on the articles of impeachment. His staff are desperately trying to keep him off his phone, especially during a Sunday when he has nothing scheduled and the talk shows are ablaze.

Hospitals do not allow cell phone usage. No doubt Trump's health is poor, but there is the possibility that this was the most effective way to separate him from Twitter and TV.

Healthwise it's all downhill to Mar a Hospitalo for Trump who will have to watch the 2020 election from his bed (in the pen?).

The US Constitution needs an Amendment to the maximum age for a President to be elected. I'm thinking 65 yrs old, just like airline pilots under ICAO and FAA rules.

If I was putting out some of the policies he has, I'd have chest pains at any age.

My biggest fear is that religious nutter Pence would become President.

We don't know Trump's real health since he fakes it but definitely obese from th junk food.

Sorry, you can’t dismiss the EC, if that weren’t true, he would have never won it. You guys can crow about the popular vote, but that doesn’t win elections in the US, never has.

I am pretty sure all of those people you mentioned would have done have done a better job. 

At destroying the economy, Yup! I do seriously believe that.

-1 ( +2 / -3 )

Trump is over 70, doesn’t smoke or drink, but eats garbage and is obese - not a good specimen. As theFu pointed out, the thought of a religious headbanger like Pence waiting in the wings is terrifying.

Oh, Druid please give us your detailed insight.

He's under siege - all of his hand-picked team going up to Congress and testifying against him, saying he was engaged in an extortion shakedown of Ukraine. 

there’s nothing to do with it, being in the executive branch he has nothing to fear they can spot off as much as they want he knows that he has Republicans and McConnell on his side.

His best bud Roger Stone is off to the slammer.

He probably won’t even serve five years, and then once Trump pardons him I would give him about maybe tops three years.

He went and put his reputation on the line in the Kentucky and Louisiana governors races and lost big time - real humiliation... 

Not so much humiliation, but you can’t call the wind when you’re reelected now how he won that would’ve been a win but the guy is going to continue as governor thought I said this is a continuation have an already held seat

He keeps losing in court trying to keep his tax records secret...

Not the SC

Has Trump given up putting out conspiracy trash that he won the popular vote if you discount the millions of illegal voters?

His supporters were running with this infowars level garbage for a while.

Progress of a sort.

We don't know Trump's real health since he fakes it

According to the big mouth liberal msm, they would say anything for them clicks.

but definitely obese from th junk food

Trump is not obese, he’s tall, heavy, but he ain’t like Nadler or Taft.

Trump is not obese, he’s tall, heavy, but he ain’t like Nadler or Taft.

I don’t know what Fox News has been broadcasting to Japan via satellite, but Trump fell into the obese category.

The condition ‘obese’ is medically defined. It isn’t a liberal or socialist label.

My biggest fear is that religious nutter Pence would become President.

Same here. That would divide & isolate the us even more.

Tbf I think he'd lose against most dem candidates even pretty mediocre ones (and the reps know that).

Def not potus material.

I heard it was constipation and gas, they gave him a quick enema , a few f*rts and a dump later all was fine.

Trump is nowhere near obese 

The condition ‘obese’ is medically defined. It isn’t a liberal or socialist label.

But liberals seem to not understand the true definition of the word or words like “fake, farce, joke or impeachment, acquittal.”

Trump is nowhere near obese

This from The NY Times:

“WASHINGTON — Despite telling his doctor that he would like to lose 10 to 15 pounds, President Trump gained weight over the past year and is now officially obese.

The president was weighed last week as part of his annual physical, and is now at 243 pounds, according to Dr. Sean Conley, the White House physician, a four pound gain since last year’s physical. At 6 feet 3 inches tall, Mr. Trump now has a body mass index of 30.4. Anything over 30 is considered obese.”

His own physician weighed him and his BMI falls into the obese category. This is not subjective - ‘obese’ is medically defined. It isn’t used like ‘fat’, ‘heavy’ or ‘plump’.

This has nothing to do with liberals and socialists.

He’s obese.

Since Trump has become conspiracy theorist-in-chief, any information from himself, the White House, and those individuals who work for him (including Sean Conley) cannot be trusted.

Enough voters in enough states decided otherwise in 2016. As they will again in 2020.

Trump has more energy than most people in their 40s. He keeps taking everything the Democrats sling at him and he's still standing.

Yes, Jimizo, but science is understood by some portions of the population to have a liberal bias. Perhaps because it requires education.

Evidence enough that it isn’t just Trump that has neurological issues.

Just yesterday you were telling us all how you thought it was important to have a muscle body not a fat one. By medical standards Trump is obese probably from the junk food.

He’d be great reinforcing for the wall.

Trump is running scared and it's affecting his health - or whatever is left of it. He was always a walking orange blob of blubber.... Now he has to worry about Sondland testifying he was behind the whole bribe smear, being impeached, and then brought to trial by the NYSD Attorney...and then joining Manafort, Cohen, Flynn, Stone, and soon Crazy Rudy and Perry at Club Fed....

Perfect summation of a Trumper:

Donnie is standing over a dead on 5th Ave body holding a gun, a person is standing behind him saying "I saw Trump take out the gun and shoot that person"...and behind that guy is a Trumper saying "I don't like the process by which you came to that conclusion"...

It is not his chest that rotting away, it is what sits on his shoulders.

Donald Trump frequently leaves the Oval Office with his head the wrong way up. Demanding Japan and South Korea pay for his maladies, physical or philological.

Evidence enough that it isn’t just Trump that has neurological issues.

Implying of course that 63 million voters in 2018 had neurological issues.

He’d be great reinforcing for the wall.

He has done a remarkable job of getting funding for the wall despite the Democrats' stonewalling and the liberal judges. It's being built.

Perfect summation of a Trumper:

Donnie is standing over a dead ( body, right? ) on 5th Ave body holding a gun, a person is standing behind him saying "I saw Trump take out the gun and shoot that person"...and behind that guy is a Trumper saying "I don't like the process by which you came to that conclusion"...

Perfect summation of an anti-Trumper: Sure, just make it up as you go along, lol.

It is not his chest that rotting away, it is what sits on his shoulders.

His head is rotting away, is it? lol
