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.”

‘Where’s Melania?’ The View hosts blister first lady for ignoring ‘bully-in-chief’ Trump’s attack on Greta Thunberg
A discussion on Donald Trump's bitter Twitter attack on 16-year-old environmentalist Greta Thunberg, after she aced him out of Time Magazine's Person of the Year, caught the attention of the panelists on The View, who hammered both the president and the first lady after they both protested the mention of their teen son Barron just weeks ago.
After co-host Joy Behar read the president's tweet from Thursday morning where he proclaimed, "So ridiculous. Greta must work on her Anger Management problem, then go to a good old fashioned movie with a friend! Chill Greta, Chill!" she called the president out for being jealous of the teen for getting the Time magazine cover he so desperately wanted.
Matt Gaetz probably isn’t the best to go after someone’s drug use: Internet cautions Republican Congressman
Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL) probably isn't the best person to make an argument against driving under the influence given his own arrests. Even Rep Hank Johnson (D-GA) cautioned against "the pot calling the kettle black," during the Thursday House Judiciary Committee hearing.
Gaetz was arrested for a DUI in 2008 on suspicion of a DUI after he refused a field sobriety test and a breathalyzer test. Just two years later he was elected to the Florida state legislature and by 2016 he was in Congress.
Rhode Island Dem perfectly explains why Trump should be impeached — and not face re-election
Rep. David Cicilline (D-RI) explained why President Donald Trump should be impeached and removed, instead of voted out of office next year.
Republicans have complained that impeachment would overturn the last election, but the Rhode Island Democrat laid out the case for removing Trump before he faced re-election.
"Impeachment is an especially essential remedy for conduct that corrupts elections," Cicilline said, quoting from an open letter signed by more than 800 legal scholars.
