Say, How Healthy Are Hillary And Donald?

The editorial board of the USA Today thinks it would be a good idea for both candidates to release their full medical records. This is obviously aimed as a barb at Trump, of course

Donald Trump has adopted the same standards for disclosing his medical records as he has for his tax returns: The less the voters know, the better. And voters know very little about the health of the 70-year-old GOP nominee, who, if elected, would be the oldest president ever to take office.

Trump, in typical fashion, has handled the issue with schoolyard taunts. On Sunday, he tweeted that both candidates should release medical records. “I have no problem in doing so! Hillary?” Trump will release “all of his medical records” when Clinton releases hers, a spokesman says.

If Trump has no problem, he ought to disclose something more than a preposterous four-paragraph letter from his New York doctor, who told NBC News he wrote the letter in five minutes while a Trump limo waited outside his office to collect it.

It is interesting that NBC News went digging on Trump, but did not do the same for Hillary. Regardless of your opinion of Trump, this is one of those things that really highlight the media bias towards Democrats. Few of them are interested in knowing whether Hillary is in good health. Most of them are doing all they can to protect her from allegations of poor health.

Meanwhile, former New York mayor Rudy Giuliani, a Trump supporter, has said that Clinton looks “tired’ and “sick,” adding that the evidence can be found on that font of all wisdom and  accuracy — the Internet. “Go online and … take a look at the videos for yourself,” Giuliani urged on a recent Fox News Sunday. One video shows Clinton coughing; another shows a couple of doctors who’ve never examined Clinton diagnosing her for Fox News’ Sean Hannity.

Giuliani, once a high-ranking federal prosecutor and Justice Department official, should know better than to make charges based on flimsy, hearsay evidence. But, hey, who needs facts when innuendo works so well?

The media had no problem running with innuendo when it came to John McCain’s health, nor Mitt Romney’s Mormonism, did they? They have no problem running with innuendo about Trump’s mental health, do they? In fact, USA Today ran a story about David Plouffe calling Trump a psychopath.

Guess they didn’t need facts on that one.

Clinton, 68, would become the second oldest president to take office. She released a two-page letter from her doctor last year with actual medical data in it. Even so, based on her 2012 concussion, voters deserve a report from specialists who treated her and a full 2016 update.

The USA Today editorial board must be full of conspiracy theorists!

Voters should not have to decipher a bizarrely effusive doctor’s letter, rely on conspiratorial Internet rumors, or guess at the health of presidential candidates. Anyone seeking the most powerful job in the world ought to hand out credible, full medical records for all voters to see.

Exactly. Both should release their full records. If Trump was smart and knew what he was doing (snicker), he’d release all his and say “Hillary? We’re waiting.”

    so Trump is actually OLDER than Clinton, right Teach ?
    THE MEDIA !!!
    of course they should be more interested in “fairness” than profit, right Teach ?
    Your problem is that the media Americans choose is NOT Fox News.
    If only there was some way to force half the media to be conservative, would that be fair enough Teach ?
    Teach don’t you really think that media should pretty much be free to say and publish whatever they wish ? Isn’t that the way it is supposed to work in the free market? Let the American people decide for themselves what they want to see hear and read.
    I can’t remember that “innuendo” about Romney’s Mormonism???
    Was it that he might be wearing that silly holy underwear ? Was that in the Onion ?
    Is that what doomed Romney?

    And Teach finds this a knock on Trump.

    Maybe she will release her medical records if Trump releases his tax returns.

  3. Jeffery says:

    Both senior citizen candidates have selected young, healthy and competent running mates.

    Gotta love how the retard has his finger on the pulse of America.

  5. drowningpuppies says:

    Maybe the little guy who exaggerates often could explain the connection between the health of an individual and the taxes one pays when running for president.

    By the way, why is the Hag hiding from the press and taking the month off (nervous hospital?) while that older guy continues to campaign every day?

  6. Jeffery says:

    Maybe the little feller who fellates canines often could explain why Trumpelstiltkin has so little respect for the voters that he hides his tax returns.

    Tell us little feller, do you think it’s because he pays so little in taxes, or that he makes a lot less than he says, that he gets money from Russian mobsters or hides income in the Caymans? Whatever it is, little feller, it’s so bad that Crooked Donald won’t do what every other modern candidate has done.

    The NYTimes discovered Crooked Donald owes $650 million to Goldman Sachs and the Chinese government. Does the little feller think Crooked Donald owing hundreds of millions of US dollars to China is a problem?

    By the way, can the little feller explain why the Big Orange Rapist is cancelling sales “campaign” events every other day? Secretary Clinton likely thinks it best not to interrupt your opponent when he’s in a death spiral.

    Maybe the little feller can explain why Der Trumpenfuhrer hires wife beaters, Russian mobsters and vote fraudsters for his syndicate campaign.

    Speaking of his health, some are saying The Sag is a psychopath (I disagree – he’s a narcissist with a personality disorder) and clearly suffers from obesity and xanthoderma. Fortunately, Gov Pence, although a right-wing cementhead, appears young, healthy and competent (although IN is happy to be rid of him).

    Why should either do anything the people want?

    Im serious. They are politicians. They will do whatever they want, lie, steal, cheat and make up all kinds of horseshit and then Let John and Jeff Defend them on a libertarian/conservative blog.

    LOLOLOL….How puny and pathetic John and Jeff and Zach look trying to attack Trump and defend the leach Hillary.

    Comical….but the funny thing is they dont even realize the pawns they are….screaming about the rich while there rich Candidate makes off with the hen house.

    LOLOLOLOL….American politics has become a joke….

    the problem is the jokes on us.

  8. Hoagie says:

    Jeffery, after that last insane tirade perhaps Teach should require you to reveal your medical records. Both physical health and mental health. You are really coming off unhinged. Take a pill an relax a day or two. Wow!

  9. Hoagie says:

    John, regarding your comment about FOX:

    In August, FNC claimed the eight out of the top 10 programs in total viewers and seven out of the top 10 in the 25-54 demo among cable news, led by The O’Reilly Factor. Hannity delivered its 2nd-most-watched month in total viewers and 3rd-highest-rated in the A25-54 demo since its launch in October 2013. One can pretty safely say that Donald Trump had a significant impact on this boost in ratings.

    The Kelly File finished No. 2 in total viewers, but fell to No. 3 in the news demo behind Hannity, a drop perhaps due to her 2-week vacation from the program, as well as a multitude of Trump appearances on Hannity. On the Record with Greta Van Susteren was up 2 percent in total viewers, marking the 35th consecutive month as the most-watched cable news show in the 7 p.m. timeslot.

    Fox News’ daytime programs all delivered year-over-year improvements, led by an 18 percent bump in the key A25-54 demo for Outnumbered.

    Touch a nerve there, little guy?
    Can’t answer a few simple questions concerning the Hag and why she’s hiding from the press?

  12. JGlanton says:

    In a separate email sent two months later, Hillary received information from her top foreign policy advisor Jacob Sullivan about a drug called Provigil (Modafinil), which is used to treat “excessive sleepiness in patients with Parkinson’s, Alzheimer’s, and multiple sclerosis,” as well as “excessive sleepiness caused by narcolepsy”.

    The fact that the drug is used to treat Parkinson’s is interesting in light of what we were told by a Secret Service whistleblower earlier this month, that Hillary has a serious neurological disease.

  13. Jeffery says:


    I wish a perfect candidate were available. A President Sanders with a Democratically controlled House and Senate would have been desirable. Unfortunately the people selected Trump and Clinton. No contest. Clinton will make a better President.

    Do we need to get big money out of politics? Yes.

    Do we need to start dismantling this unresponsive plutocracy? Yes.

    Secretary Clinton is not the best messenger for the job – but she’s better than Trump. No contest.

    Republicans are trapped in a futile cycle of tax cuts for the wealthy and unresponsive government, and have no ideas for reinvigorating the economy. Trump is running as a Republican.

  14. Jeffery says:

    Modafinil is approved as a wakefulness-promoting agent for the treatment of narcolepsy, shift work sleep disorder, and excessive daytime sleepiness associated with obstructive sleep apnea.

    It is used by the Air Force for fighting fatigue.

    Modafinil is not approved for the treatment of depression, Parkinson’s, cerebral palsy, fibromyalgia or CFS.

  15. drowningpuppies says:

    So the Hag is hiding from the press because she’s fatigued?


  16. Jeffery says:

    So the Sag is hiding his tax returns because he’s crooked?

    Really, Jeffrey, if that’s the kind of country you want, you can have it.

    No you commie….everytime the right passes taxes cut the biggest tax cut belongs to the M I D D L E C L A S S!

    It is the left who want to pound….CRUSH THE MIDDLE CLASS WHILE PRETENDING TO DEFEND THEM…..just as they pound blacks while pretending to be their champions…..

    Its about votes and power for the average dem politician as it is the average gop politician….

    However when it comes to philosophy….the two sides are completely opposite….the left wants to empower BY GOVERNMENT FIAT and the right wants to empower by personal FIAT…..

    Who gives a shit about abortion and sex and gays and lesbians and religion? Only about 20 percent of each side….the rest of us care about empowering the American citizen by giving them better jobs and more money and a better life…..

    You talk about the racist right and yet Blacks killing blacks and mugging each other is at a staggering high….in Democrat controlled areas of the country….

    As clearly as you see the GOP sitting around wringing their hands over helping George Soros make more money we see the Democratically elected neighborhoods of this nation awash in crime and violence of black on black.


    The lefts political philosophy DOES NOT WORK…….

    THE RIGHTS political philosophy DOES NOT WORK……

    So Doncha think its time the two sides got together and tried to fix things….together without political ideologues ruining every conversation?

    I do….thats why I changed my affiliation to independent about 2 months ago…..I cant stand either party right now….and Im sick of ideology……

  19. Jeffery says:

    No you lunatic. The biggest tax cuts go to the wealthy – which is the Republican’s intent. Remember supply-side economics; remember trickle-down economics?

    Every policy move that the Republicans make is to benefit the wealthy. Don’t get me wrong, most policy moves of the Dems do the same thing. It’s just the Repubs are worse.

    Even though you are mentally unhinged, I applaud your desire to toss out the elites and install a government that supports and works for the working classes. I suspect though that your society and mine would be vastly different.

    How, exactly, does a man who supports vastly increased energy prices for no current return support “the working classes”? How does a man who supports ever more welfare, ever more money being given to those people who will not work define himself as supporting “the working classes”?

    The truth is that you say you support “the working classes,” but the policies you support are diametrically opposed to the good of the working class.

    It’s telling: Donald Trump’s greatest support comes from white working class voters. It would seem that your vision of what would benefit the working class, and their own, are somewhat different.

    The communist speaks.

    Other Bush tax cuts. The Bush tax cuts included several other policy changes:

    They doubled the child tax credit from $500 to $1,000; Benefiting poor and middle classes.
    They reduced the marriage penalty by doubling the standard deduction for married filers compared to single filers and doubling the income threshold for the 15 percent bracket for married filers compared to single filers; Benefiting poor and middle classers.
    They increased the earned income tax credit (EITC); Definitely helped the poor and middle classers.
    They raised the annual contribution limit for Coverdell education savings accounts to $2,000 per year and relaxed other limitations; Benefited the middle classers because the rich DONT HAVE TO SAVE>>>THEY JUST WRITE A CHECK WHEN ITS TIME.
    They extended the exclusion for employer-provided educational assistance;Benefits the middle class.
    They eliminated the 60-month rule and the disallowance for voluntary payments for the student loan deduction;Benefited the middle class because the RICH DONT BORROW MONEY TO GO TO COLLEGE.
    They eliminated tax on certain scholarships;Benefited all.
    They reduced taxes on bonds for school construction;Benefited Cities with lower per capita income to be more easily able to issue bonds to build new schools.
    They increased the dependent care tax credit; Benefits the Poor and middle class, the rich hire nannys to take care of their kids.
    They increased the adoption credit;MIddle class and the rich are the only ones who adopt….The rich dont need an adoption credit…Im sure Brad Pitt was jumping for joy that he had to pay 500 dollars less for his kids.
    They provided credit for employer-provided child care; MIddle class tax relief as well as helping lower classes.
    They changed tax treatment of Alaska Native Settlement Trusts.


  22. Liam Thomas says:

    From a leftist website railing against the Bush TAX CUTS……

    4. Increased take-home pay for middle-class workers: While much of the perks from the Bush tax cuts flowed to the top, they also helped middle-class earners, who kept more of their earnings because of reduced tax rates.

    This was especially important in the last decade, since median wages stagnated, and it may be one reason why Democrats so readily pushed to extend most of the Bush tax cuts.

    On January 1, 2013, the Bush Tax Cuts expired. However, on January 2, 2013, President Obama signed the American Taxpayer Relief Act of 2012, which reinstated many of the tax cuts, effective retroactively to January 1. The 2012 Act did not repeal the increase in the highest marginal income tax rate (from 35% to 39.6%) which had been imposed on January 1 as a result of the expiration of the Bush Tax Cuts.

    Based on figures from the CBO and Joint Committee on Taxation, federal taxes would have increased by a total of $423 billion in 2013, if the tax cuts had been allowed to expire.[60] The non-partisan Tax Policy Center estimated that for 83% of households in the U.S., there would be an average tax increase of $3,701[62] and The Heritage Foundation stated that those impacted by the tax cut expiry are primarily in the middle- and low-income groups, with its research finding that families would experience an average tax increase of $4,138.[63]

    How did the vote go for the Bush Tax cuts in 2001 and 2003?

    Believe it or not it was bipartisan. The Left joinned the right and voted to extend tax cuts…..

    How were the rich helped….their rate was cut 3 percent…..biggest effect was dividends were cut by 5 percent and the death tax was cut to 35 percent from 50 percent on anything over 5 million dollars.

    I am all for raising taxes on the wealthy if you cut the corporate tax rate to 20 or 15 percent….

    Personal wealth of rich people do not provide jobs…..corporations do…..taxing them at a reduced rate would fire up this economy.

  23. Stosh says:

    LOL — I think I see the problem where tax cuts are seen as unfair — the benefit of the cuts go to tax-PAYERS. Since the majority of DemonkRATS don’t pay taxes, they get left out….

  24. Jeffery says:


    The Republicums have their share not paying taxes. In fact, most Trump supporters do not pay federal income tax.

    What you fail to recognize (you’re a conservative after all, so much of what you think is true, is actually false) is that cutting federal taxes leaves local taxes to make up the difference. Local taxes are regressive and impact the working classes more than the well to do.

    The magic of the progressive federal income tax is it takes from those who have been richly rewarded by America and makes the entire nation stronger. The progressive income tax paid for WWII, built colleges, the military and the interstate highway system.
