Donald Trump made a surprise trip to Walter Reed hospital & no one knows why


Did you know that Donald Trump made a “surprise” visit to Walter Reed on Saturday? I say “surprise” because usually Trump’s Saturdays are full of hate-tweeting and golf. And I say “surprise” because this trip to the hospital was not on his schedule, nor were hospital staffers given any kind of advance warning for his arrival. But… the official story is that this was just one phase of his physical?

President Trump underwent a two-hour doctor’s examination on Saturday at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center, which the White House said was part of a routine annual physical and included lab work. The appointment was not on the president’s schedule, in contrast to a previous physical that Mr. Trump had in February, also at Walter Reed outside Washington.

In a statement, Stephanie Grisham, the White House press secretary, said Mr. Trump, 73, was taking advantage of a free weekend to begin portions of his annual physical, and was anticipating a busy schedule in 2020. She did not specify what types of tests Mr. Trump had.

“The president remains healthy and energetic without complaints, as demonstrated by his repeated vigorous rally performances in front of thousands of Americans several times a week,” Ms. Grisham said.

After his February physical, Mr. Trump’s personal physician said that the president was in “very good health” and that he should remain so “for the remainder of his presidency and beyond.”

But Dr. Sean Conley, a Navy officer who is the president’s physician, released scant details about the physical examinations that Mr. Trump underwent, or their results, as a White House physician did for President Barack Obama. Mr. Trump’s weight was listed at 243 pounds after his last physical, a four pound gain since his 2018 physical. At 6 feet 3 inches tall, Mr. Trump had a body mass index of 30.4. Anything over 30 is considered obese.

While there is no requirement for presidents to publicly release their medical records, many have over the years as a reassurance that they are up to the rigors of the job.

[From The NY Times]

I do think that a president’s medical records AND his tax returns should be released. Like, that should be the law. Don’t yell at me about medical privacy – a president (any president, not just ones I despise) is a public figure and his or her health is a vastly important part of the executive branch and the country. Especially while the dude is in office – we need information about WTF is happening. But yeah, no one is buying the whole “this was just part of his physical” story. It’s because all of these people are f–king liars, true, but it’s also because a fat, old, senile man being rushed to the hospital out of nowhere on a Saturday morning just indicates that something else was going on.

Also: Trump’s mysterious hospital visit came about 24 hours after Roger Stone was convicted of seven felonies in a federal court. Stone could face up to 50 years in prison. Stone was Trump’s longtime friend, political mentor and handy dirty trickster. Stone was one of the middlemen between Russians hacking Hillary Clinton and the DNC, Wikileaks and the Trump campaign.

    my first thought when I found out he’d gone to the hospital was really that I hoped he died there. which probably isn’t great but it is what it is.

    • Bella DuPont says:

      You wish! 😂

      Evil people don’t die that easily unfortunately.

      Still, here’s hoping! 🤭🤞

      • Juliette says:

        I second that. My grandfather (on my dad’s side) was the most evil, mean corrupt man. Not a single happy memory of him. He spent his life abusing, insulting and berating everyone around him and lived to 97.

        My grandmother who was the sweetest, most loving and caring women passed at 75 suddenly. We are all to this day convinced she just wanted to get away from him. All the medical tests they did on her said she was fine. They finally told us she was just tired and ready to go.

        Evil survives unfortunately.

    • Jerusha says:

      Hey, don’t feel guilty, melania stands with you.

    • DaisySharp says:

      The problem is it’s likely to be his heart. And if it’s heart, he will live for decades. Dick Cheney still lives. They gave him a new heart, and they’ll give trump one too, once they exhaust all of the rest of the best western medicine has to offer. The best of the best for trumpy.

      No, it’d have to be a catastrophic brain incident. The f*ckers can’t do much then.

      • Jerusha says:

        It could be that they’re just excising Graham’s, McConnell’s, Jordan’s, Gaetz’s, Nunes’, and Sessions’ lips from his flabby ass. Must be hard to sit down to a bucket of KFC with all those suckers attached.

      • Betsy says:

        So a devastating stroke? Which clearly he didn’t have yesterday, given that he walked faster than that boob has ever walked.

        But I suppose you’re right. Short of something like atrial defbrillation that cant be shocked back into rhythm, I suppose they’ll put out all the stops for him.

      • DaisySharp says:

        Yes that’s what I think Betsy. To me the case of Cheny is very instructive. If you have power, and a bad ticker, you can live forever in this country. But they still can’t do much about the brain. Or, if it’s massive and they’re dead before they hit the ground as you say in your second paragraph. But we didn’t get that apparently.

      • Chanteloup says:

        lol @ Jerusha – Indeed!

      • Sara says:

        Woodrow Wilson had a debilitating stroke while in office and they still pretended it was business as usual with him. His wife Edith was running the country.

    • Sierra says:

      Noooo – I don’t want him to die yet. His supporters will turn him into a martyr.

      Vote him out next year and then he can join the devil in hell.

    • Sara says:

      Same. When I heard he’d been taken to the hospital, it was the first glimmer of hope I’d felt in 3 years.

    • holly hobby says:

      He’s like a cockroach. It won’t be easy to get rid of him.

    • Raina says:

      Nope I don’t want him off the hook that easy. I want wheelchairs and pain and amputations and prison. And a long life exactly that way. And I feel great about wanting it.
      ETA…ooh you know what else would be fun? If in the end he’s on life support and for indidual selfish reasons, naturally, the family all publicly turn on each other and all hell breaks loose. And, ultimately, his pulling of the plug is aired on live TV and we can all say “You’re fired” right as he flatlines. I’m getting so excited thinking about it. This is what he made me.

    • Pinetree13 says:

      Nooooo i’d be so upset if he died before ever seeing prison

  2. Jerusha says:

    Yes, I knew he’d made a “surprise visit” to WR. Got my fingers crossed. Been working my voodoo doll like crazy. Media, don’t get my hopes up without a payoff.

    • H says:

      Presidents just don’t make “surprise” visits to Walter Reed. 20 years ago when I was a military police officer at Bethesda Naval Hospital, I was one of the people entrusted with guarding Al Gore and Bill Clinton. In the weeks before the President and Vice President would arrive for their annual physicals, we worked with the Secret Service and local law enforcement to bring our security up-to-date. (i.e. bringing in bomb-sniffing dogs and going over strategic positions where law enforcement would be posted during the visit).

      You don’t give two hours notice and show up. There is way too many variables for security to go awry if you do that. So, I’m not buying Trump was doing his physical early.

  3. BlueSky says:

    Between Batman villain Roger Stone getting convicted and his boy losing in Louisiana and the Ukraine ambassador testimony, something definitely went down.

    • Lucy2 says:

      Yes I think he had a freak out or chest pain or something.

      Also …243? Hahahaha!

      • ThEHufflepuffLizLemon says:

        I laughed HARD at 243. My dad is 6’5” and weighs 240 At 67 years old . He is still long and reasonably lean, with just a bit of a belly. Granted, he’s a LOT more active than trump and probably has more muscle since he works out regularly, but still. 243 my ass.

      • Jerusha says:

        Obviously, dyscalculia. He’s really 342.

      • Lightpurple says:

        They let that slip later in the day.

      • Nic919 says:

        The lie about his height is still being used too. He’s not even close to 6’3. Obama is 6’1 and there are a ton of pictures of them next to each other and obama looks taller. These stupid and insidious lies are just being accepted now.

      • Ally says:

        Also he wears lifts in his shoes; that’s partly why he’s always standing tipped over like that.

    • josephine says:

      I’m assuming he went so that he can start the “health issues” excuse for resigning in case things start to look worse. He could have easily hidden the visit.

  4. DaisySharp says:

    Since I heard the news, I’ve been praying it’s nothing trivial, but I fear I am to be disappointed.

    • Lizzie says:

      are you southern or from minnesota? b/c that was the most beautifully passive aggressive way to say “i hope that MF’er dies soon” i’ve ever heard. it is truly art…and i couldn’t agree more.

      • DaisySharp says:

        LOL nah, I am from NY, it’s really almost a paraphrase of a pretty famous quote I read once. Something along the lines of ; i’ve just been informed of his illness, let us pray it is nothing trivial. LOL

    • Snazzy says:

      OMG I LOVE the way you have phrased this. I will have to use it someday. When I read it, I heard it in Maggie Smith’s voice as the Dowager Countess of Grantham

  5. Chrissy says:

    Maybe there was a two-for-one special on having his bone spurs removed and having his head examined. At least he wasn’t wasting tax-payer dollars golfing.

  6. Eliza says:

    I always go to the far hospital without notice for scheduled and routine tests for my second physical off the year…. and they tell me I’m the healthiest person who had every personed in all time. Seems legit. #sarcasm

    • Frida_K says:

      But does the doctor approach you with tears in his eyes, saying: “Sir, you are the healthiest person who ever personed in all time. There’s never been healthier than you, sir. And so vigorous, too!”

      Unless there are tears and a few gratuitous throwings-around of “sir” and some hyperbole, I just can’t believe your story.


      (You know I’m being #sarcastic & just kidding, of course.)

      • Eliza says:

        No official tears, but their eyes all filled with water because of the pride of having the honor of doctoring me, the bestest healthiest person in all time.


  7. Lightpurple says:

    The White House has medical facilities that can handle most routine tests, including blood work, some x-rays, and EKGs. Annual physicals are once a year and insurance won’t pay for it again until one year and one day from the last one. The video of the trip to the hospital shows him with something wrapped around his upper arm and Secret Service agents running. Secret Service agents do not run unless there is a crisis.

    He has not actually been seen since he went INTO the hospital.

    • TheOriginalMia says:

      That’s right, Lightpurple. They looked concerned and that is not their usual MO. Saw a post on Twitter that he probably had stents placed in his heart after chest pains. There’s a 3 day recovery period. We’re on day 2 of no public sightings of him. No one can truly say he’s back at the WH.

    • Who ARE These People says:

      Blood pressure cuff?

    • Betsy says:

      My spouse pointed out that the only thing so far not pointing to crisis emergency is that the vehicle didn’t peel out immediately.

    • Rapunzel says:

      This sounds right to me… stints make sense. Or, a pacemaker insert?

      • Who ARE These People says:

        Recorded as leaving after two hours…unlikely.
        Most likely his blood pressure was dangerously high and/or he had chest discomfort.

      • Lightpurple says:

        But the press pool outside both the hospital and the White House said that nobody actually saw him leave the hospital or enter the White House.

    • Digital Unicorn says:

      Given the rumours of him sniffing crushed Adderall, his bad diet and clearly seriously high level of stress its save today he’s had a heart scare – as you say the SS would NOT run around like that if it were not serious.

      He needs to stay alive to be dragged out of the WH and thrown in prison as its the only way that his ‘legacy’ will be destroyed – if he dies in office he will become a martyr to his base.

    • Meg says:

      So the lie the white house gives us in routine tests, which could’ve been done at the white house, so why go to the hospital? -so it’s not even a good lie. Bunch of idiots

      • BeanieBean says:

        That press secretary they’ve got right now is just like all the others–she lies & gets ridiculously combative for no good reason. In every statement she manages to get in a disparagement of President Obama or the democrats. Each and every time. Trump having a heart attack would somehow be Obama’s fault.

    • minx says:

      Lightpurple, you’re correct. I don’t think he has been seen—his limo, yes, but no one saw him going back into the WH. There have been tweets but they don’t sound like him. And when doesn’t he golf on the weekends?

    • Tiffany :) says:

      Great points, LP! I don’t want to wish harm to anyone, but something needs to slow down this monster from harming other people.

  8. Spanish senorita says:

    Do you think this could be his out strategy? Instead of facing the music corruption wise, putting up with a lengthy impeachment process, etc. maybe he’ll just fake sick and say he’s leaving office for health reasons? Bone spurs came back, for example?

    • Jenns says:

      I’ve seen this theory, but I don’t buy it.

      He’s eats like sh*t and has been raging at the TV all during the impeachment hearings. My money is on chest pains.

      • Betsy says:

        It’s probably chest pains or something legitimate since he’s not back at the WH yet, but I wouldn’t say resignation isn’t likely. The man’s a quitter.

    • Ann says:

      I read this theory somewhere else. Like he’ll have an out to resign because of health issues. Maybe? He’d have to flee the country if that’s the plan because he will be charged and arrested if/when he resigns. Whatever gets him to go away is fine by me but I doubt that’s what will happen.

  9. 10KTurtle says:

    Wow- that Grisham/Pirro clip is utterly North Korean state media language! Does anybody think he’s setting up a “stepping down for medical reasons” excuse so Pence can pardon him? On the one hand, I think he’s too narcissistic to ever admit a weakness, but on the other hand I think he’s more than stupid enough to think that’s a Get Out Of Jail Free card and doesn’t know it won’t work on NY state charges.

    • Nic919 says:

      It’s bad enough that Pirro is saying crazy stuff but it is utterly insane for a press secretary to be speaking like Baghdad Bob.

  10. Lory says:

    I would like to point out that a few years ago he made an on camera announcement about a winner of one of his pageants getting too fat for his taste (read: she went from being superslim to being superslim with an extra pound) and making her work out, again on camera, in order to not offend his delicate eyes. So with that in mind I feel he should be called out for being obese on camera and should be made to get on a stairmaster, again on camera. It’s only right.

  11. Diana says:

    Maybe he had a stroke? Is he still in there???

  12. TheOriginalMia says:

    He can’t quit. He’ll be indicted immediately after he left office. We’re unfortunately stuck with this monster until the very end. Hopefully, he’s miserable all the way through 2020.

    • PlayItAgain says:

      Nah, they would let him go if he had some “life-threatening” condition. As long as he’s out of office, the pressure will be to just move on, especially if he’s “sick”. I still think this could be his exit strategy. And if so, what’s the best timing? If it’s before the election, then the ticket will probably be Pence and Nikki Haley. And that could be a difficult ticket to beat, unfortunately, no matter how awful Pence is.

  13. Who ARE These People says:

    If the Supreme Court declines to take the case on his tax returns, there could be a return visit.

  14. Lesanne says:

    Hemorrhoids, from blowing it out his ass so often. Sorry, I know that is foul but having watched Barr speak of “unlimited powers” for this fool, I can’t help myself.

  15. paranormalgirl says:

    “part” of his annual physical? Lasting 2 hours? A thorough physical takes about 1/2 hour. Labs just consists of blood and urine samples taken. Even if he did a stress test, that would still only be about an hour total time. So tired of the lies.

  16. JoanCallamezzo says:

    I’m betting it was a heart issue, he is the opposite of all that is healthy, it must have been serious if they couldn’t handle it in house. The orange turd won’t leave office willingly. He’s facing indictments and a dozen investigations the GOP can’t protect him from the minute he is out of office. His name will be synonymous with Benedict Arnold it’s just a matter of when.

  17. Marjorie says:

    Something happened that couldn’t be handled in the White House medical clinic. and couldn’t wait for Marine One to fly over from the air force base (and/or he couldn’t make it up the steps). He was hiding something with that envelope, he never carries stuff.

    They are lying bigly.

  18. Rapunzel says:

    Tinfoil hat theory: what if he was OD’ing on the Adderall he snorts?

  19. teehee says:

    Simple: “he thinks everyone is as stupid as him”

  20. adastraperaspera says:

    My two cents is that he heard he’s being pulled out of the batting order and Nikki Haley is up next. So Moscow Mitch can lure back suburban women’s votes.

  21. Giddy says:

    Please, oh please, please, please. May all his dominoes fall down, and his books become overdue. May all his orange makeup turn white, may his combover come unstuck. May his healthcare be only as good as what he wants for most Americans.

  22. Meg says:

    From CNN
    ‘Trump typically takes the Marine One helicopter to Walter Reed, but on Saturday’s clear-skied day, the President opted for the motorcade.’

  23. Veronica S. says:

    Yeah, I’m not really excited at the thought of sharing personal medical details with the public – mainly because of the precedent that could set for the rest of us – but. Like. The sheer amount of incompetent lies this administration puts out is just ridiculous. Just say he was showing signs of a bad cold or something. Jesus, this isn’t that hard.

    • BeanieBean says:

      No, we’ve gotten past that long ago with president’s medical conditions. President Wilson’s stroke was kept secret, Roosevelt’s polio downplayed, Reagan’s Alzheimers was another secret. Americans have a right to know if the president is in poor health & can no longer serve.

      • Tourmaline says:

        Even for JFK, the youngest man to ever be elected President, it was kept secret that he had serious back problems, Addison’s disease, and was treated regularly with amphetamine injections.

    • Pinetree13 says:

      How far would it go though? Like what if someone wants to be president but doesn’t want everyone reading about their recurring anal fissure issues?

  24. says:

    What you expended the Republican clan to finally tell the truth??? GTFOOH!!!

  25. PlayItAgain says:

    What if it had nothing at all to do with his health? What if he was taking a page out of the Sopranos and was using his doctor’s office to meet privately with Rudy/his Russian handler/a mafia hitman or some other unsavory person who he couldn’t bring to the WH? And that’s why he was carrying those envelopes.

  26. Countrybumpkin says:

    My tinfoil hat is on high alert today. Yesterday 2 big yachts under construction worth $20 million dollars caught on fire and burned in FL. Orange Buffoon is rushed to Walter Reef and no one has seen him since. I think the fire was a subtle threat to Orange Buffoon. Along with the impeachment hearings not going well, being morbidly obese, plus looking unwell, & the fires was too much for his ticker. Just hope he makes it to 2020 and is voted out of office. He does not like to lose

  27. Andrea says:

    Please let him resign…please….We can deal with Pence for a few months…

  28. Original T.C. says:

    I hope he lives long enough to be impeached, lose the election and stand trial in NYC. I’m just afraid he will keep attempting to steal the elections with the GOP as his accomplice. Don’t forget that this POS also asked China to investigate Warren.

    I’m convinced Erdogan has evidence of Saudi Arabia’s guilt in the death of the Washington Post reporter that he used to bargain with Trump to leave Syria. I still can believe the Dems have left this issue go!

  29. Kyla says:

    I’m legitimately hoping that this is the real life version of the movie Dave.

  30. Jaded says:

    Sanjay Gupta checked one of the results of his “phased exam” which, he said, makes no sense. A full physical isn’t done in phases, it would be counterpoint to getting the complete results of interrelated tests. Gupta says he’s already been diagnosed with a common form of heart disease and high cholesterol which could result in a heart attack in 3-5 years if diet and exercise modifications aren’t put in place. Apparently Trump knows best and hasn’t changed his lifestyle one bit. No surprise.

  31. fishface says:

    Possible little tweaks to the face – threadlift or something? That would only take about 2 hours. And we all know how desperate he is to cling to whatever fantasy of youth he harbors.
