WASHINGTON — President Donald Trump´s White House physician declared him in "excellent health" after the president received his first medical checkup at Walter Reed military hospital on Friday, undergoing a physical examination amid suggestions in a recent book and by his detractors that he´s mentally unfit. Dr. Ronny Jackson, in a statement released by the White House, said the examination "went exceptionally well. The President is in excellent health and I look forward to briefing some of the details on Tuesday." Trump spent about three hours at the medical facility in Bethesda, Maryland, outside Washington, for the Friday afternoon checkup,

Obie never revealed the details of his results, and the last year of his term, he simply submitted to an exercise test.

The Manchurian Candidate always hid whatever he wanted, and the corrupt Press covered for him.

First, the congnitive assessment was done, I´m sure.
Second, if you people want to see the ´vigorous workout´ done by Barack, you can find it on youtube.
Do not watch the video of Barack if you are holding a drink of any kind in your hand. It will result in the destruction of your keyboard.

Watching Bathhouse attempt to throw a baseball tells you everything you need to know about his physical abilities. I would wager that the NBA players he often invited to the White House had a great laugh in the locker room afterwards. They no doubt wondered why he kept staring at them too.

And yet, not a peep of curiosity by the media about Hillary literally being thrown into her Scooby van even though they just “knew” she was going to win the election. Her physical fitness to serve was of little importance to them. What hypocrites! Pathetic creatures married to a failed democrat party with no ideas and nothing to offer Americans.

MAGA Day today. While not surprised, great news the President remains in good health. I just may go get a triple quarter pounder today, no cheese, extra pickles and wash it down with a large diet coke.

And lefties, you might try the burger and diet coke thing, too. But, not sure how you can deal with the mental disorder part - perhaps if you come to our side it will go away?

I suspect that the president eats what he likes, what makes him happy not the latest must eat, superfood, diet fad that the health Nazis are promoting on any given day (and which is constantly changing). And I think attitude, outlook, satisfaction play a large role in general health. The mind-body connection. That and genetics. So, carry on, Mr. Trump, we´re not tired of winning yet.

More proof that the Trump health controversy was another fake story manufactured by the left to feed all the Trump haters out there so they would not vote for him come election time in 2020.

They hope to steer all the Trump haters to vote for some lefty that is completely unqualified to govern. Barring that, they hope they will stay home and not vote at all.

Its called voter suppression and voter manipulation.

I´ll bet you would never hear a health report like that about Hillary or Barack Hussein Obama. For the President´s height I would like to know his weight. President Trump´s activity probably burns all the caloric intake of whatever he eats.
I don´t believe the hyped fake stories about his bad diet. President Trump probably was seen consuming a cheeseburger and diet drink and the MSM produced fake news and took it to the wall. Maxine Waters can ´stay woke´ now with this good news.

A former aide for President Obama tore into James Comey after the ex-FBI director urged Democrats not to “lose” their minds and “rush to the socialist left.” Tommy Vietor, a former Obama spokesperson and current co-host of the popular "Pod Save America" podcast, responded to Comey on Sunday afternoon. “Hey Jim, we got this covered,” Vietor wrote on Twitter. “No one is asking for your advice. As we saw during the campaign, your judgment isn’t great! All the best, everyone.” (Tweet) His tweet came after Comey told Democrats that leaning too far to the left is what President Trump and

Sergio Marchionne has stepped down from his position as CEO of Fiat-Chrysler Automobiles (FCA) about a year earlier than expected due to significant complications from shoulder surgery. The automaker’s board of management appointed Mike Manley, who previously ran the Jeep and Ram divisions, as Marchionne’s replacement during an emergency meeting. Outspoken and influential, 66-year old Marchionne had surgery on his right shoulder in early July. His recovery took an unexpected turn for the worse on July 21. FCA has not released additional details about Marchionne’s health, stating only he will be unable to return to work, but comments from other

Sixty-one percent of the people in my county voted for him. Drive through most communities in my town and you’ll still see large blue Trump campaign signs on perfectly manicured lawns.

BUENOS AIRES - European finance leaders called for progress on global rules to tax the digital economy at a meeting of G20 finance ministers and central bankers in Argentina on Sunday, putting them at odds with U.S. counterparts. The final communique reaffirmed a commitment to address the impacts of the shift to a digital economy on the international tax system by 2020, without giving more details. The European Commission, the executive arm of the European Union, proposed rules earlier this year to make digital companies pay more tax, with U.S. tech giants such as Alphabet’s Google, Facebook and Amazon set

Former FBI Director James Comey waded back into the political fray on Twitter Sunday, warning Democrats not to "rush to the socialist left" in upcoming elections. "Democrats, please, please don’t lose your minds," Comey wrote. "This president and his Republican Party are counting on you to do exactly that. America´s great middle wants sensible, balanced, ethical leadership." (Tweet) Last week, Comey urged voters to back Democrats in November´s midterm elections, tweeting that Republicans had proven "incapable of fulfilling the Founders’ design that ´Ambition must … counteract ambition.´" (Tweet) Comey´s latest tweet appeared to be a response to the rise of

COLUMBUS, Ohio — If Bernie Sanders is leading a leftist political revolt, then a summit here of moderate Democrats might be the start of a counterrevolution. While the energy and momentum is with progressives these days — the victory of rising star Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez in New York, buzz about Democratic Socialism and the spread of the "Abolish Ice!" movement are a few recent examples — moderates are warning that ignoring them will lead the party to disaster in the midterm elections and the 2020 presidential contest. That anxiety has largely been kept to a whisper among the party´s moderates and

DETROIT — For Rachel Conner, the 2018 election season has been a moment of revelation. A 27-year-old social worker, Ms. Conner voted for Hillary Clinton in the 2016 primaries, spurning the more liberal Bernie Sanders, whom many of her peers backed. But Ms. Conner changed course in this year’s campaign for governor, after concluding that Democrats could only win with more daring messages on issues like public health and immigration. And so on a recent Wednesday, she enlisted two other young women to volunteer for Abdul El-Sayed, a 33-year-old advocate of single-payer health care running an uphill race in Michigan to

There’s no question that the story of the Democratic party right now is about the ascending left. There’s a bumper crop of self-consciously progressive candidates running for office this year, while many relatively non-ideological “Establishment Democrats” are embracing policy positions and political messages long associated with party insurgents. The relative strength of various Democratic factions in Congress won’t be possible to reliably measure until after the midterms. But with the 2020 presidential election cycle soon to begin (the first candidate debates will probably be held about this time next year), it’s looking like

By Nov. 7, Democrats will learn if their left turn steered them to victory or took them off a cliff. The state party’s endorsement of Kevin de León, a self-proclaimed socialist’s upset of an establishment Democrat in a New York City congressional primary and talk of abolishing Immigration and Customs Enforcement and enacting single-payer health care show an embrace of progressive politics that heartens liberal activists enraged by conservative policies pursued by President Donald Trump and congressional Republicans. But it’s unclear whether moving left will energize voters or endanger Democrats’ chances in competitive districts in the Nov. 6 mid-term elections,

CLEARWATER — Pinellas County Sheriff Bob Gualtieri announced Friday that his agency will not arrest a man deputies say shot and killed another man during an argument over a handicap parking space. The incident falls under Florida’s self-defense law known as "stand your ground," the sheriff said during a news conference. The law gives immunity to those in fear of their lives who use force to defend themselves. The shooting "is within the bookends of ‘stand your ground’ and within the bookends of force being justified," the sheriff said, later adding, "I’m not saying I agree with it, but I don’t make

Iran faces increased U.S. pressure and looming sanctions after Trump’s decision to withdraw the United States from a 2015 international deal over Iran’s nuclear program. Addressing a gathering of Iranian diplomats, Rouhani said: “Mr Trump, don’t play with the lion’s tail, this would only lead to regret,” the state new agency IRNA reported. “America should know that
