[QUOTE=Corndog Ninja;53049984]For comparison, Obama's physical: [IMG]https://pbs.twimg.com/media/DTY-E7bUQAAbzHv.jpg[/IMG] Notice how it says things are "normal" or "good health" and even expands on benign minor issues, not "just excellent, very good, believe me"[/QUOTE] Frankly, I'll be disappointed if Trump's medical report isn't basically stuff like 'amazing brains', 'great vision, great' and 'best lungs, really'.
[QUOTE=Big Dumb American;53049923]Note that this exam specifically excluded a mental health evaluation. Telling.[/QUOTE] I don't think any presidential physical has included a mental health evaluation.
[QUOTE=Cone;53049821]he really doesn't, if you've ever actually seen a picture of him as a younger man [img]https://ethicsalarms.files.wordpress.com/2016/03/young-trump.jpg[/img] the orangeness kind of throws you off, but with a before/after you realize how hard he melted, how fat he got and how unnatural his current appearance actually is. like yeah if you just assume he was born looking like a freeze-dried Gerber baby, he does look pretty good. but the cure was quite clearly worse than the disease in this case[/QUOTE] wow he almost looks human

For a 71-year-old sedentary man, "excellent health" is not quite the same as it would be for a 20-something like you or I. I'm pretty amazed that he manages to keep going at his age with as little sleep as they say he gets. That said, I really doubt this isn't mostly fluff like the doctor's note that went out during the campaign. They wouldn't be giving a statement to the press if it said he's prone to strokes or whatever.
Trump doesn't look like he is in good health at all. I had a family member pass away just a few hours ago, 87 and from like years of fighting something like 9 different types of cancer, and he looked in better health than Trump even up until the day he passed away while napping.

Don't give Trump the benefit of the doubt, he doesn't deserve it.

Hasn't it been reported that he considerably shrunk his schedule and sleeps in much more now?
[QUOTE=Clovernoodle;53049687]There’s talks (on liberal websites mind you) that it’s faked cuz the doctor’s note misspells the doctors own name... [url]https://shareblue.com/trump-may-have-just-faked-his-doctors-note/[/url][/QUOTE] Shareblue isn't a good source, they're far-left and heavily bias in their story selection and reporting. They're basically Breitbart for college liberals.

The hilarious thing is, this could be him retaliating against "Trump isn't [B][I]fit[/I][/B] to be president". He took that as a literal physical statement and had a fitness examination just to say that he is indeed a "fit" person.

[QUOTE=Eva-1337;53050247]Hasn't it been reported that he considerably shrunk his schedule and sleeps in much more now?[/QUOTE] I think that's probably less a direct result of his health and more that he hates the job and everybody hates him.

This guy is not in good health, not compared to people his age.
[QUOTE=Big Dumb American;53049923]Note that this exam specifically excluded a mental health evaluation. Telling.[/QUOTE] I guess a decent list of mental health doctors sent a letter to the White House Medical unit pleading he get checked. CNN is the only one with the article about it at the moment.
[QUOTE=redBadger;53049724]Truthfully he looks a lot better than most other people his age (71)[/QUOTE] We should investigate thoroughly if a man as rich as him wasn't looking well at that age to be honest. This is obviously faked anyway. As said, what kind of message would that give to everyone, be it friend or foe? Plus, his mental health isn't right at all. I've seen older people being in better shape than him in, well, just about anything, not just mentally.
If he won't release his tax returns I sure as shit won't believe any medical report his crony doctor pulls out his ass.
It is sort of hypocritical to see the media start questioning his health when they freaked out at anyone questioning Hillary's health even after she collapsed in public. Not to "whataboutism" this. It's fair to question any world leader's physical health, I feel.

Not to "whataboutism" this. It's fair to question any world leader's physical health, I feel.[/QUOTE] The media didn't question Clinton's health until she collapsed after which practically every mainstream source reported on it. Additionally, the health of a president typically isn't an issue but I think it's being magnified in this instance because you have a president who is obviously not in excellent health being described as being in excellent health. Just looking at him you can tell he is overweight, and based on what we know about his daily diet you can see that isn't really true Don't get me wrong, I don't think he is about to keel over or anything and I agree with Chonch (to an extent) regarding the amount of energy he does seem to have, but he clearly isn't an example of someone in excellent health. [editline]13th January 2018[/editline] There is also the fact that the people who questioned Hillary's health were implying that she had any or all diseases or conditions and that she was going to die two weeks into office, where as people questioning Trump's physical health just find these reports hard to believe.
I mentioned this in another thread but I also think that the right wing mediasphere spread so many conspiracy theories about Clinton that it was hard to take criticism and/or health concerns seriously.
Today I learned that it is possible to be morbidly obese and still be in "excellent" health.
[QUOTE=Lambeth;53049958]Clinton has had is own health problems in recent years. He eats a vegan diet nowadays. It is extremely unlikely that Donald Trump's health is flawless but we already he is incapable of admitting fault. [editline]13th January 2018[/editline] Clinton is also the same age as Trump FYI[/QUOTE] Clinton was also an overweight fat man, the only difference is he was younger and it didn't show as badly.

He has a belly, also look at his thighs man
[QUOTE=FlakTheMighty;53051320]Clinton was also an overweight fat man, the only difference is he was younger and it didn't show as badly.[/QUOTE] And he had heart problems and put himself on a diet and exercise routine as well as cut out all the big macs Again donald trump has stated several times that he thinks exercise will literally kill him quicker
[QUOTE=Cyan_Husky;53051294]Today I learned that it is possible to be morbidly obese and still be in "excellent" health.[/QUOTE] Maybe they just shifted the goal posts to be more in line with the obesity figure for the US. It's not like the GOP is a stranger to goal post shifting.
[QUOTE=Lambeth;53051332][img]https://i.imgur.com/kSgBTHF.jpg[/img] :disgust:[/QUOTE] this instantly made me imagine a buddy comedy called "Bill and Al', Undercover" about when Clinton and Gore play hooky from the White House, like a cross between those Biden and Obama conversation memes and Ferris Bueller's Day Off, plus Clinton's amazing accent. I would pay to see that
[QUOTE=Sableye;53051569]And he had heart problems and put himself on a diet and exercise routine as well as cut out all the big macs Again donald trump has stated several times that he thinks exercise will literally kill him quicker[/QUOTE] And that's another key difference.
