GOP strategist Rick Wilson on Tuesday panned Donald Trump’s “deep male vanity” that appeared in two statements by two separate doctors for the president.
Wilson was asked by CNN’s Don Lemon how the statement by Trump’s personal doctor Dr. Harold Bornstein—which Bernstein on Tuesday revealed was “dictated” by then-candidate Trump—compared with a glowing press conference Dr. Randy Jackson gave about Trump’s health.
“Look at the similarities between these two descriptions of Donald Trump’s health,” Wilson said. “This is a guy whose clearly not missing any KFC meals, described as the perfect specimen for his age, is in astoundingly great health. The striking language in both of them are very similar.”
Wilson said Trump “has a tremendous amount of personal vanity and wants to be described” as “glowing and heroic—the picture of perfection.”
“I think the similarities between the two are striking,” Wilson said. “If you are suborning the White House doctor to describe you in ways that aren’t accurate, it’s one of those things that begs the question of, ‘What does it driving your mental state that makes you want to do that?’ At some point you’re 77 years old. You’ve got a few extra pounds, your hair’s a little weird. You just own it, you just ride with it. Trump seems very unwilling to that—and that sort of ‘deep male vanity’ shows in both those letters.”

‘Go look at President Trump’s Twitter’: Portland right-wing rally organizer claims ‘mission success’
The organizer of a far-right rally in Portland, Oregon claimed the event was a "success" after President Donald Trump attacked Portlandiers protesting the group.
"A confluence of protesters on opposite ends of the ideological spectrum merged on Portland’s waterfront Saturday in a tense but relatively uneventful face-off that brought national attention, including a tweet in the hours before the protest by President Trump decrying the city’s signature anti-fascist movement," the Oregonian reported Saturday.
When a similar right-wing rally in Charlottesville, Virginia killed Heather Heyer, Trump argued there were "fine people" on both sides of the "Unite the Right" rally.
Why was Jeffrey Epstein buying size 5 women’s panties — while in jail?
The Miami Herald has another bombshell report on Jeffrey Epstein, who died in a Manhattan jail while waiting to stand trial on federal sex crimes charges.
"A decade ago, during a brief stint in Palm Beach County Jail, convicted sex offender Jeffrey Epstein made an odd purchase at the facility’s store: two pairs of small women’s panties, size 5," the Herald reported Saturday night.
The newspaper noted, "the panties raise questions about why a childless male inmate, accused of sexually abusing girls as young as 14, would be allowed to buy female undergarments so small that they wouldn’t fit an average-sized adult woman."

A photo of the town hall meeting was posted on Twitter by Reuters photo editor Corinne Perkins.
Rep. King was quickly mocked in the comments.
