That man is "healthy" in the same way an old dog that sits on the porch all day is healthy. Sure, he might not have any OBVIOUS problems, but could he chase a rabbit and catch it? Not bloody likely. I would bet that of a zombie apocalypse broke out, he couldn't run fast enough (or long enough) to get away. He'd be eaten quickly.....

Could be true. Although the 110 is believable to me. It’s difficult to judge because he often has loose fitting clothing on. He could have very thin old man legs and be top heavy.

It will be interesting to see the before an after presidency photos. Most presidents have noticeable changes in appearance do to the stress of the job.

It really is getting pretty... what's the word... SAD!


Investigation into Russian ties...

"Russia! Proof of collusion is coming! Mueller Time!"

Ends up: No proof of collusion.

"Well... there probably is! I just know it!"


Lots of videos and hubbub from congressmen about articles of impeachment being drawn up, etc....

"YES! Finally! He's getting impeached!!!!"

Ends up: Nothing happens.

"Well... he'll still probably get impeached, I know it!!!"


Impending health exam of President...

"Finally, here it comes! It'll be proven he's super sick/unfit for office, possibly psychotic for certain! I saw him eating a Big Mac in a picture once!"

Ends up: He's perfectly healthy.

"That dumb doctor was forced to lie! Trump's clearly super ill!"


On and on and on... chasing after one thing to the next, to the next, insatiably. Leading to nowhere but disappointment. Is this healthy?

I'm not disappointed the guy is healthy and neurotypical, if anything I'm relieved.
This means he's conscious of the decisions he makes and the things that he says, and we can hold him fully responsible for those things.

Not that nonneurotypical or sick people shouldn't also be held accountable for their words and actions, but that there's a big difference between choosing to be an asshat for funzies and coming across as one because reading social cues is an added challenge.

I don't care what a doctor says, or which President we're talking about. I don't really believe that we'd find out, in this day and age, if a President had serious health issues or not.

They (the President, be it Trump, Hillary, W, Gore, whoever) would have one particular doctor who could be trusted not to go off script. C'mon, you're President of the frickin' USA... you absolutely have health issues after a few months. The stress is gonna take a toll.

Similar things happened with all the Obama conspiracy theories. Only now the term is “fake news.” These types of political strategies seem inevitable nowadays.

There's this too.
Plus, his private medical information is only our business if it makes him incapable of doing his job.

Trump's first year in office was the "year of the woman." In 2017 Trump hired more women for senior-level positions in the White House than Obama, more than George W. Bush, and more than Clinton.

I can't imagine why this isn't being talked about in the press.

But "lefty" narrative...

Trump is literally Hitler and USA on the verge of Nazi dictatorship!!
Which is usually said by people, who have no ****ing clue what real dictatorship is. If any of those idiots think that US is authoritarian state, than they need to grow up and take a trip to North Korea or even Russia.

Apparently Trump tried to fire Muller last June but backed off when the White House counsel threatened to resign.

How many more women than men did Trump appoint?
The OpEd seems to be fuzzy on that.

And I can't help but question the use of the word "inane" when describing the focus of the media on the cabinet members directly in line for the Oval Office...because, that's kind of an important thing, isn't it?

So, the story here is that Trump wanted to do something he totally had the power to do, he met with his team to discuss it and instead of barging ahead on his own he was convinced by his team not to do it and followed the lead of his Counsel.

How does this story not fly directly in the face of every negative trait that the Left has painted Trump with since he entered the race?

If you do this I'm out, and you're on your own, reads a bit differently than, sir, this isn't a good idea and here's why.

besides if Trump did fire Muller he would look even more guilty than he already is.

The left made fun of Fox News for so long that they literally created the Fox News of the left. I fear this lack of awareness will lead us to 8 years since they haven't learned a damn thing. Worst of all is it affects me more than any of the whiners ever will. It's really upsetting.

Convinced my ass. He got an ultimatum and backed down, which probably saved him. He gave the order and only stood down when his counsel said "if you do this, I walk" because said counsel wasn't a complete moron and presumably knows what happened to Robert Bork, the last guy to carry out an order like that.

I don't think Trump will have another 4 years, but one thing that I am pretty much confident in, is that whoever will be after him, won't be able to fix divide which is going on in US of A.
Righties and Lefties are too much polarized at this point and even if new President will pander to Lefties, they will blame him or her, for not being progressive enough and so on.

Anyway, it will be interesting show.

As for "self-awareness of Left" most of the loudest ones never had it: it's hard to have self-awareness when you convinced in your own moral superiority to everyone who dare not to breath your way. Some local "Lefties" on this forum are prime example of that.

In general, it is funny, how those people despite saying how moral superior they are, use the same dirty methods of their opponents. Which was one of those things, that made me dislike them.
If you pretend to be good guy - act like it. If you pretend to be good guy, but use dirty tricks - than stop with pretentious showmanship. I am not against idea of using "dirty tricks" for to achieve good results, but people who do this should at least be aware that what they do is as dirty as when their opponents do it.
