Anecdote from WaPo about Trump’s physician/VA nominee Dr. Ronny Jackson:
“One trait universally cited is Jackson’s storytelling ability. He has regaled colleagues with one particular tale about administering stitches on an intimate part of his body. He even recounted it for Bush after cutting himself with a hoe at the president’s ranch in Texas. … That earned him an admiring nickname from Bush: Scrote.”
Though the House was able to pass a four-week spending bill with money for children’s health care on Thursday night, the Senate, with its supermajority voting requirement, doomed the bill and Congress careened past the midnight deadline. Negotiations during the final hours came in fits and starts, with a few bursts of enthusiasm but mostly resignation: Schumer and Trump chatted over cheeseburgers, and a bipartisan group held a last-ditch session Friday night.
Dr. Jackson said he is planning to increase Trump’s medication and put him on a diet and exercise regimen, though he maintained that Trump’s coronary health is superb.
“He has incredible cardiac fitness at this point in his life,” Jackson said.
