Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Monday, May 14, 2018

First lady Melania Trump underwent treatment Monday for a kidney condition and is expected to remain at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center for the rest of the week, the White House said in a statement. The White House said she went through an embolization procedure for a "benign" condition and had no complications. "The First Lady looks forward to a full recovery so she can continue her work on behalf of children everywhere," the statement said.

Did you ever refer to michelle obama as OUR FIRST LADY?

Check your biases.

"Our first lady" is Donald's THIRD lady. Fourth if you count ivanka.

Especially when you don't find out until you're nearly 40 and start showing signs of a related condition that nearly kills you. Fun times.

Hope the First Lady recovers quickly.

In such a case, what exists on the non-kidney side of the body? It's really interesting that this type of thing could occur and be missed for decades on decades of normal living.

"In such a case, what exists on the non-kidney side of the body?"

In my case, and what is often found, was essentially a cyst. Normally they are found in youth but mine never grew big enough to cause problems until I was an adult. When they went in to remove it laparoscopically it burst and caused wild bleeding. What was supposed to be a one hour outpatient procedure turned into three days of induced coma, intubation, and opening me up from ribs to groin. They had to move most of my internal organs to stop the bleeding, which caused inflammation that prevented them from being able to close me up right away, so they left me open with a mesh covering sewn into my stomach. I looked at it once, and only once. It took a week and three more surgeries to close me up again, and then another week before I was able to go home. Thei worst part was not being able to eat or drink for ten days. I never expected how much food and drink contributed psychologically to my humanity. Especially the drinking. Painkiller meds and the hallucinations were insane. Like I said, fun times.

"#27 Wow Hag you sure a lucky unlucky guy. Sounds like you escaped the reaper."

Yeah, lucky that I had insurance. Whenever I tell people this story I am always reminded about when I lived without insurance in Wyoming where it wasn't provided by my job and I was barely making enough to pay my rent and keep myself fed. If this had happened back then I would have put off seeing the doctor about my symptoms (which were similar but not identical to some completely normal and temporary conditions) and that cyst would have burst a long way from any hospital and I'd be dead today.

At least we know he flew to the hospital, we don't really know if he visited her or even if she wanted him to. Were I her, I wouldn't have wanted him to be anywhere near me. I'd just tell him to go visit Stormy.

"First Lady" isn't even a formal title. It's an honorific. If I ever meet Melania, I'll politely refer to her as Ms. Trump.

I'll refer to Donald as "Mr." At least I will for as long as he does the same for me.

"Comrade" means friend or fellow member of a group. It's a pretty mellow "insult" if you ask me.

"Is there stuff you can't eat or drink nowadays?"

I have to lay off the alcohol. Now I have maybe ten drinks a year. And I have to make my doctors know when they prescribe medicine. It's considered a pre-existing condition, which had I been aware earlier would have made life insurance impossible and an individual health insurance plan exorbitantly expensive.

Problem with lying to everybody all the time is that when you tell them someone is having surgery for a kidney condition, they have no reason to believe you, and they start to wonder what else could be going on and why it might be lied about.

Just like Donald wrote his own fake medical report before the election, he could say his wife is getting kidney treatment when she's really getting forced ----- treatment.

Maybe Donald is having her poisoned to have her die just before the mid terms or 2020 so as to get the sympathy vote.
