Donald Trump wants to project a hale and hearty mien, even though he’s basically a VW Beetle-sized hunk of whale blubber wrapped in extra crispy chicken skin, Nickelodeon slime, and shamelessness.
So yesterday, as Dr. Nick Riviera and his team were dissembling up a storm in front of Walter Reed Medical Center, Trump was likely pretty happy, all things considered.
President Donald Trump is furious with chief of staff Mark Meadows after the top West Wing official contradicted the White House physician's assessment Saturday of the President's health, two sources with knowledge of the situation told CNN on Sunday.
Meadows is now widely known inside the White House to be the unnamed source who spoke to reporters following the medical briefing yesterday and offered a more dire assessment than Navy Cmdr. Dr. Sean Conley had given shortly before. That reporting was initially given to a pool of reporters attributed to an official familiar with the President's condition. Later, the Associated Press and the New York Times identified that official as Meadows.
Trump is outraged at Meadows over the botched message, according to a senior Trump adviser.
