NO ONE Is Buying Trump’s Excuse for Visiting Walter Reed, Something Is Wrong


Donald Trump wants you to know that all is well, he is just being proactive and using his time very wisely:

This is, of course, insane. “Phase one” of a “yearly physical”? People who happen to be president do not do normal physicals in “phases.” Normal people do not do physicals “in phases.” So whatever else happened yesterday, we know that it was not “phase one” of a physical.

There is very little official reporting on this, and it is easy to understand why. Near all reporting will be  abject speculation. I am not going to speculate on exactly what occurred yesterday, except to note the possibility that Trump might want to set-up a medical excuse, should things go badly in the next couple weeks. That is speculation, we all agree.

The only “firm” fact that I can note is that very few people are actually accepting any part of this. The public understands that something extremely odd occurred yesterday, even if we don’t know exactly what it entailed.

The tweet is filler, it makes no sense, might not have even been written by Trump. It does sound like he visited a man who was being operated upon, and thus was likely made-up whole cloth. No, we don’t believe any of it.

This gets right down to the heart of the matter:

Do not read too much into the picture below, but it does appear that Trump’s decision to go to Walter Reed was “rushed,” as we can see in these pictures:

I don’t know what that means, if anything.

Meanwhile, Trump is back at the White House, attempting to control the monster he has unleashed. North Korea’s Do Koo Kim has gotten on the “Destroy Biden Train” (since that is how one gets ahead internationally these days) but maybe Kim went a little too far even for Trump. Trump is here to show us he is healthy and in control, telling Doo Koo to clam it up a bit:

This is life during the Trump administration. Something very unusual happened yesterday, but we won’t hear a thing that we can believe any time soon, and meanwhile we’re back into dividing ourselves politically even when it comes to foreign affairs and North Fricking Korea, for godsake.

I will be here throughout the day with updates. This is laughable, except for the fact that we are supposed to be better than this. On a good note, Louisiana rejected the Republican candidate for governor yesterday, and thus Republicans have lost two of the three governorships in very red states. Maybe that is causing Trump some indigestion, and the White House was out of Tums.

Peace, y’all

North Korea calls Joe Biden a ‘rabid dog’ who should be ‘beaten to death with a stick’ in latest attack on Trump’s rival. #Biden #biden2020 Mr. Chairman, Joe Biden may be Sleepy and Very Slow, but he is not a “rabid dog.” He is actually somewhat better than that, but I am the only one who can get you where you have to be. You should act quickly, get the deal done. See you soon! Creating a ‘fake’ incident with NK (BFF Kim would surely go along $$$) to try to boost his stature, HA! yeah right, because it now… Read more »

Maybe, considering his family, we should hope that it is contagious, whatever it is.

Yes, and that it’s not just something trivial.

Another fine posting, Jason.

Not sure if he wrote that tweet either, or if he had to be talked into it.

He says he visited the family, not the patient undergoing surgery. But why he would do so is left open.


He’s looking for something, ANYTHING, to stop the train barreling down at him.

It was pointed out elseweb that it’s 20 to 30 minutes to Walter Reed from the WH by ground transport, and about 5 minutes by helicopter. An unscheduled chopper trip would have gotten even more attention than the motorcade.

He would also have had to walk farther to the helipad than to the limo, that could be a factor. If anyone had seen that, it would have raised questions.

“A bit of indigestion”, indeed. That’s what Ebenezer Scrooge said about Marley’s ghost, “an undigested bit of beef”. Perhaps tRump has had a visit from the Ghost of Christmas Future.


What was the indignation they spit out when Hillary stumbled into a car? “She didn’t tell us she was Ill? So, we need to be informed before things “stumble!” And they didn’t even tell us!


The puppet in chief needed an emergency meeting with Vladimir to obtain marching orders on a plan of action moving forward to prevent or stall impeachment. No electronics allowed. No phone, no electronic files to bug or leave an information trail. Extremely heavy security. No advance notice. Only paper files in manila envelopes being carried into the hospital under his arm.


Maybe his bone-spurs flared up.
