Here’s All the Things Donald Trump’s Doctor Looks Like


Yesterday we learned more about the identity of one Dr. Harold Bornstein, Donald Trump’s long time physician, which was somewhat disappointing to those of us who had imagined the guy that wrote that insane Trumpian health letter back in December was actually just Trump wearing scrubs and a gold-pated stethoscope.

That said, the real doctor did not disappoint, in either appearance, or temperament. Bornstein told NBC News on Friday that he actually wrote the letter in about five minutes.

“If elected, Mr. Trump, I can state unequivocally, will be the healthiest individual ever elected to the presidency,” Bornstein wrote.

Asked how he could justify the hyperbole, Bornstein said, “I like that sentence to be quite honest with you and all the rest of them are either sick or dead.”…

The doctor said he would not normally use such over-the-top language in a letter for a patient but he made an exception for Trump — who just two weeks before had tweeted that the doctor’s assessment would show “perfection.”

“I think I picked up his kind of language and then just interpreted it to my own,” Bornstein said.

While it was certainly funny that his doctor would attempt to emulate Trump’s speaking style, what most people seemed to find delightful about the whole story was his appearance, a sort of alternative timeline where The Dude graduated from med school instead of screwing around with six other guys in Seattle.

Twitter found many other colorful analogies to explain Bornstein’s casual affect.
