Since he was a candidate mowing people down in the primaries, President Trump has always accused CNN of being fake news.
I’m covering this and keeping my promise to stay away from politics as I’m letting it fly under the radar as humor and my second love, medicine.
Here we have another case of wishful thinking on behalf of the clowns at CNN.
The forgot one major factor.
His lovely wife Melania with be the President’ s “Weight monitor.”
The only person qualified to make a medical diagnosis is the examining.
Has been physician, Sanji Gupta, attempts to carry CNN’s water while bloviating on this situation.
For his part Gupta is an assistant professor of neurosurgery at Emory University’s department of Neurosurgery.
Emory is a great teaching hospital, no problems there, but if one is an assistant professor that’s as low on the food chain one can be in academic medicine. (Source)
Tomorrow is promised to no one.
Each of us could go out and have a heart attack tomorrow.
One need not have risk factors to have a heart attack. (Source)
Heart disease is something no one wants to think about, but it’s also a top killer of both men and women.
Most people think heart attack symptoms are pretty straightforward: Chest pains and trouble breathing.
Unfortunately, it’s not that simple.
There is a direct connection between the brain and the heart shown by seeing or recalling something that brings on goose pimples. (Source)
For a physician who has been in practice for 25 years, his academic writings are sparse while his writings and CNN weekly telecast leaning toward a political animal make his involvement in this entire situation odd to say the least. (Source)

Despite President Trump’s positive health exam results, CNN simply won’t accept the White House doctor’s assessment.
Pundits who have not examined Trump parsed the results and drew conclusions likely intended to scare viewers.
Host Alisyn Camerota and medical analyst Sanji Gupta declared Trump to be “borderline obese,” predicted he would have a heart attack in “3-5 years” and Gupta concluded the president has heart disease.
“Somehow he has grown while being in the White House,” she snarked.
Because of Trump’s weight of 239 lbs., she said his Body Mass Index is “two-nine point nine.”
Gupta conceded the BMI ratio is “not a perfect ratio by any means,” but nevertheless, went on to declare Trump “borderline obese.”
“So he’s point-one away from being in the obese category,” Camerota emphasized.
After Vice President Joe Biden’s doctor panned CNN’s hysteria, Camerota went back to Gupta.
Because of Trump’s calcium score, CNN predicted the president will have a “heart attack or heart disease” in “3-5 years.”
But Gupta was more aggressive.
“So the president has heart disease,” he declared.
Yesterday, CNN host Brian Stelter didn’t accept Dr. Ronny Jackson’s findings, either.
“Here’s how the next few hours will go,” he sniffed. “Trump supporters will say ‘Concerns about Trump’s mental health were always absurd. Case closed now.’
“The obvious response: ‘The Q’s about fitness for office are serious.
Someone could be sharp as a tack, but still unfit,” he tweeted.
