A Pulitzer-prize winning reporter reports in a new book that, at the time of an UNSCHEDULED, SATURDAY urgent visit by the “president” of the United States to Walter Reed Medical Center in a motorcade that included an ambulance, the vice president had been placed on “standby notice” ready to assume the duties of the presidency if needed.
At the time, they said it was part of a routine physical, though it was not on the schedule, as all others had been, was on a Saturday, unlike others, and the vice president was put on standby notice.
The entire passage in the book was one paragraph on one page, which concluded that the actual nature of why Trump was rushed to Walter Reed “remains a mystery.” In other words, we don’t know what was wrong with the president.
So early the next day, Trump bangs out several angry Tweets, angrily denying that he “had multiple mini strokes” as has been “widely reported” by the “fake news” (NO ONE HAD REPORTED ANYTHING ABOUT MINI STROKES).
As Lawrence O’Donnell noted on his program, any time Trump suddenly and aggressively denies something that “everyone is saying” (when it is actually something NO ONE HAS SAID), the opposite is true.
O’Donnell concludes that Trump has just confirmed, by his own revelation of details no one else had previously asserted, that he was rushed to Walter Reed Medical Center due to a series of mini strokes (transient ischemic attacks).
