WATCH: Trump doctor’s wife threatens to call the cops on CNN during interview

Published

Dr. Harold Bornstein is escorted by his wife away from a CNN interview (Screen cap).

Dr. Harold Bornstein became fodder for late-night comedians last week when it was revealed that he wrote a typo-riddled medical evaluation of Donald Trump in just five minutes last year.

Via Mediaite, CNN went to interview Bornstein about his medical qualifications this week, but the chat was cut short by Bornstein’s angry wife.

During the interview, CNN’s Drew Griffin asked Bornstein how he felt about criticism both from the media and from other doctors depicting him as a lunatic after it was revealed that he hastily scribbled down a medical evaluation of Trump in just five minutes in which he stated that “if elected, Mr. Trump… will be the healthiest individual ever elected to the presidency.”

“Well, a lunatic doesn’t have my credentials,” the 69-year-old Bornstein replied. “The only thing I wanted to do in my life is practice with my father, which I managed to do for 35 years.”

When asked why he used very unprofessional language in his letter — he said that Trump’s health as “astonishingly excellent,” for example — Bornstein replied that he was “rushed for time” and “had people to see.”

CNN had to hold the interview in a hallway because Bornstein was worried that his wife would get angry if she saw he’d agreed to talk to the press. Sure enough, when she arrived on the scene, she immediately threatened to call the police if CNN didn’t leave their property.

"I know something about political figures and observable signs of illness from afar," Richard E. Cytowic M.D. wrote in Psychology Today. "... The American public deserves an accurate account of our president’s health."

DOJ begs for delay of hearing in Trump rape case — claims it didn’t know about COVID rules in NYC

Published

on

The United States Department of Justice was expected to attempt to intervene in a civil case involving President Donald Trump on Tuesday, but the government's attorney was apparently unable to enter the courthouse.

The case involves an allegation by longtime columnist E. Jean Carroll that Trump sexually assaulted her in a Bergdorf Goodman department store in New York City. Trump denied the accusation and lashed out at Carroll, resulting in her suing him for defamation. On Wednesday, the DOJ was expected to argue a novel legal strategy that Trump's statements against Carroll were an official presidential action. This would allow taxpayer-funded attorneys to defend Trump in his civil case.

Trump’s legacy in the GOP is one of ‘crybaby conservatism’: conservative columnist

Published

on

Writing in the Washington Post this Wednesday, columnist George Will slammed President Trump as a "practitioner of crybaby conservatism."

Citing Trump's disputing of reports that his inauguration turnout was lower than Barack Obama's, Will says Trump's presidency began with a "wallow in self-pity" and will probably end "in ignominy when he slinks away pouting, trailing clouds of recriminations..."

According to Will, the Trump era has caused the Republican Party to "eagerly" surrender its self-respect. "And having hitched its wagon to a plummeting cinder, the party is about to have a rendezvous with a surly electorate wielding a truncheon."
