CNN chief medical correspondent Dr. Sanjay Gupta had some deep questions for President Donald Trump’s physician Navy Rear Admiral Dr. Ronny Jackson.
Dr. Gupta asked Dr. Jackson if being borderline obese and on cholesterol medication could be considered healthy. Dr. Jackson replied that the president is fine. Dr. Gupta disagrees. In fact, based on the test results that Dr. Gupta has seen, it is his belief that Trump has heart disease.
Dating back to 2009, Trump started to have “these tests that are actually looking for the presence of calcium in the blood vessels that lead to the heart.” Dr. Gupta stated that, “steadily, up until just this past week when [Trump] had it performed again, those numbers have gone up… when they get to a certain range… that means he has heart disease.”
Dr. Gupta went on to describe his interaction with Dr. Jackson
“It was interesting when I spoke to Dr. Jackson. At first he said he passed all the tests with flying colors… When I asked him specifically about that test, he did then concede that, in fact, the president does have heart disease… They’re going to be increasing the medications, including the cholesterol-lowering medications to try and combat that, but there’s no question, by all standards, by all metrics, anyway a doctor or cardiologist will look at it, the president does have heart disease.”
Heart disease is controllable with medications, but Gupta adds that Trump needs to also have his diet under control. Looks like Donnie is gonna have to cut back on the McD’s if he wants to live long enough to completely destroy our country.
