Trust me, I'm a doctor

Say hello to Harold Bornstein. Why am I not surprised that this is the man Donald Trump chose as his doctor? He looks nuts and he somehow fits well with Trump's comic (but deeply scary) persona. Nor should anyone be surprised that a compulsive liar like Trump should have got his doc to sign a letter extolling the president's good health – a letter that Trump himself had dictated. Only someone with the mentality of a 10-year old could have dreamt up such a ruse.

"His physical strength and stamina are extraordinary," Trump wrote about himself. "If elected, Mr Trump, I can state unequivocally, will be the healthiest individual ever elected to the presidency."

The President of the United States just can't stop himself lying and bigging himself up. He's a braggart and a manipulator and a bully and a sadist and an abuser and an all round imbecile. BUT what he did is so typical of his infantile behaviour that it's hard not to laugh.

That's not true of his corrupt doctor who was quite happy to put aside medical ethics in order to please Trump. Still, if you ever need a doctor's note to get you off work for a week or two so you can make that skiing trip, you know where to go.
