Rachel Maddow rips apart Trump’s ‘weird and fantastical’ White House physical report: What else are they lying about?

Published

MSNBC anchor Rachel Maddow explained the problem of not being able to trust White House doctors after they again lied to the American people about President Donald Trump’s height.

Last year, during his first White House physical, Dr. Ronny Jackson claimed that Trump had grown an inch to be six feet and three inches.

“Even the president’s annual physical has become weird and fantastical,” Maddow noted. “Today we have the full readout from the president’s physical on the president’s health and again, it’s just a little weird.”

“The president gained a few pounds from last year, his cholesterol ticked down, but cholesterol medication ticked up,” she noted. “And this is not the most important thing in the world, but I will draw your attention to this assertion here — height 6’3″ — this was also the president’s height according to last year’s physical results released by the White House.”

“Even that is another weird little pointless lie that we’ve all been told to believe about this president because the president may be 6’3″ in his mind, but he is not 6’3″ in his body,” she noted.

To make her case, Maddow analyzed photos of Trump standing next to people with known heights, including former President Barack Obama and Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau. Trump’s claimed height would make him taller than both men, but in the photos he is clearly shorter.

Maddow explained how the lie about Trump’s height calls into question every other claim by White House doctors.

“In the case of the president’s physical, if they are lying about his height, does that call into question that they may be lying about other things?” she wondered. “That may potentially be more material with the president’s fitness and life expectancy.”

“Are they lying about the drugs he’s on and dosing?” she asked. “We don’t know.”

“I mean, once they are lying about one thing, it’s hard to trust them on anything and this is something we never had to worry about as citizens before,” she explained. “Letting the truth go seems like a bad slippery step at the top of a steep hill.”
