    First, this is not unique to him. Prior POTUS have covered up medical conditions. Kennedy's Addison's disease, Woodrow Wilson's stroke, Grover Cleveland's cancer surgery, FDR's heart disease, Eisenhower's heart attack.

    So to me this incident falls into the same category. It does not pass the sniff test. He has a full time doctor and a phlebotomist could come to the White House if needed. So something else is going on. And the changing story about why he visited Walter Reed underlines this.

    I'm sure that the reason will leak out sooner or later.

    Remember back when all the Trumpettes were irate about Hillary Clinton having a cold? I assume they'll just handwave this, because "reasons".

    Or ignore it. I went to great lengths including citing Democratic Presidents who did this to try to have an open discussion. Mostly crickets aside from one snarky remark. It appears the "Sun King" can not even have a non-life threatening situation requiring a hospital visit.

    Fair enough, I'd just be careful about reading too much into it.

    If the impeachment was busy not consuming so much reporting time someone might have dug to the bottom of this already. Perhaps Trump is lucky that way.

    "So many scandals none of them can be fully reported on or investigated before the next one blows up" you think that's a bug or a feature?

    Yah it will sooner or later.

    This Trump avoiding WH records, staff and leaks to the media. The hearings yesterday mentioned Trump has unusual record keeping and storage due to his views of leaks. All sides agreed on this.

    Is this not just a typical diversion tactic?
    Impeachment - what, look over there - medical problem?

    There's only so many lies one can pack into their mouth before it affects one's general health condition. It's probably karmically related for him.

    Trump is not the one that made this thread nor have I seen Trump himself make a big deal out of it, others are doing that for him.

    It's not a diversion tactic if no one pays attention.

    Correct, that's why I said "More fool Democrats" because they are making an issue of it
