Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Sunday, May 14, 2017

Vox: How healthy is President Donald Trump? We don't really know. The president never released his full medical records, and instead opted for a surreal on-air physical with TV star Dr. Oz. One health aspect Trump is transparent about: He doesn't like to break a sweat. To be more precise, he thinks physical activity will kill you faster. In a remarkable New Yorker story this week about how Donald Trump could realistically be removed from the presidency, Evan Osnos writes: "Other than golf, he considers exercise misguided, arguing that a person, like a battery, is born with a finite amount of energy."

In a New York Times story from 2015, Trump described his cockamamie theory that exercise is bad for you.

Trump said he was not following any special diet or exercise regimen for the campaign. ''All my friends who work out all the time, they're going for knee replacements, hip replacements -- they're a disaster,'' he said. He exerts himself fully by standing in front of an audience for an hour, as he just did. ''That's exercise.'"

No wonder Trump is worshiped by redneckus obeseatori.

This really close to precious bodily fluids territory.

I believed that same thing once and suffered from it.

At this point my health is better to the point I'm starting to think about running marathons.

The man who refused to release real health records is going to tell us how to live? How stupid.

Trump is addicted to something . . . other than himself and twitter.

He looks unhealthy, as though he's ready to blow a major blood vessel any minute now.

One could only hope.

It was unsettling when he collapsed at the golf course and his handlers had to bundle him into a van.

When did Hillary become president? I must have missed something...

That ridiculous "theory" of Trump's is pretty much what you'd expect to hear from a grossly overweight bubble-arse deeply crippled with an (at best) grotesquely attenuated relationship to reality.

This is really no different from his climate change denial. It's all that science stuff you know.

"Nazi theory indeed specifically denies that such a thing as ‘the truth' exists. There is, for instance, no such thing as ‘Science' ... If the Leader says of such and such an event, ‘It never happened' -- well, it never happened. If he says that two and two are five -- well, two and two are five. This prospect frightens me much more than bombs."

Speculating on Hillary's health on the nooner was enough to get one temp-banned here pre-election.

Speculating on hillary's health? I think you mean FALLING FOR RUSSIAN PROPAGANDA like a sucker.

I went and re-watched the videos. Nope, no Russians around when she collapsed, just her own staff.

but I got banned for pointing out her wonky eye, even though it's known she had a major health issue as secretary of state, and she has special lenses to correct a side effect of that. there's not even anything special about that though, my friends mom had swelling in her brain, ended up with the same issue.

Probably why when he sits he looks as if he trying to take a ----. Hard to pass them stools when you're sitting 24/7. Keep it up Mr. President!

It's no wonder Trump's health has been medically-certified to be "astonishingly excellent."

You big tease!

"unsettling" is not the word I would use.

"So for Trump, exercise is deadly. But according to science, it's a miracle drug."

Stupid Science

Trump's nose was dripping during the debates. I suspect his "miracle drug" is a drug of another kind.

This is how Republicans are: They believe what they CHOOSE to believe rather than anything scientific.

You have to understand that Sitzkrieg has never been sick a day in his life. He can also fly and knows everything.
