Trump's medical views are worthy of consideration, as he is no stranger to health complaints. The president was afflicted by bone spurs in both heels during the Vietnam war draft, which meant he avoided military service.

In 2016, Trump said the bone spurs had later healed.

Didn't Melanie have "kidney enlargement surgery"?
Looked like she went up a size.

The kidney has a very special place in the heart. It's an incredible thing," Trump gushed.

The liver is the lifeblood of the bone spur.

They're just laying down the ground work so the rich will be able to buy kidneys legally. Nothing will change for regular folks.

If this breaks the stranglehold duopoly the current major dialysis providers have on the market, then this is A Good Thing.

And much needed.

The original patent for insulin was sold for one dollar to ensure it stayed at the lowest possible cost. That has obviously been circumvented by a community of parasite.

Trump is channeling Bush's crayspeak. If only he had run with Palin, such poetry!

I would love for Trump to be my doctor. Knowing a stable genius like that is overseeing my health and well being just would be so reassuring. Oh yeah, is Dr. Trump in the house?

Something tells me that Trump just got diagnosed with a kidney problem. It must be serious.

Maybe Trump can love my friend's kidneys back to health so he can quit dialyses. If not, would he perform the transplant operation if I'm a match? Who wouldn't want the world's premier authority on kidneys to do it?!!

I was thinking it was going to be an alchy. Oh, wait, that's the liver. Trump does diet Coke. That only has aspartame.

Soonish we'll be printing kidneys (if the "pro-life" people don't try to stop stem research).

That said, I'll concede that I applaud trump for wanting to get people off dialysis -- its a corrupt industry that does need a major overhaul.

Maybe true, but she doesn't love kidneys or know more about them than anyone on Earth like Trump does. :)

Trump doesn't have an altruistic bone in his body. So when he suddenly starts worrying about people with kidney disease I only have two thought.

How long has his diabetes and high blood pressure gone untreated?

And is it already too late?
