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.”

‘Hell no’: Texans join forces to stop Trump from stealing their land

Published

on

President Donald Trump's pledge to build a wall at the southern border with Mexico has been a huge winner with his base. But there is one group of people who are not happy: the Texans who actually live in the region where the wall would be built.

According to the Washington Post, many people in the region have no intention of letting the federal government seize their land to construct the wall, like Afghanistan war veteran Salvador Castillo of Brownsville, who received a letter from officials demanding unlimited access to and use of his land, which gradually escalated into a lawsuit.

Team Trump wants to steal another election — and there’s only one way to beat them back

Published

When I was growing up at Fort Leavenworth, Kansas, back in the early 1960s, my mother drove down to Kansas City one morning to go shopping and have lunch with an old friend of her mother’s. Ladies going out shopping and having lunch in the upscale Country Club Plaza in Kansas City was almost a formal occasion. I remember she put on a summery suit and heels and stockings, and I’m pretty sure she wore a pair of white cotton gloves.

When she returned a few hours later, she wasn’t carrying any bags from the shops, and she was seething. The woman she’d eaten lunch with was married to a man who owned a chain of downtown hotels in major cities around the country. They lived in a big Tudor house in Mission Hills, the Beverly Hills of the Midwest. She drove a Cadillac. She was rich.

An attorney for indicted Rudy Giuliani associate Lev Parnas warned Rep. Devin Nunes, R-Calif., that “Lev remembers” their phone calls — even if the Intelligence Committee’s top Republican does not.Phone records obtained from AT&T and released in the Intelligence Committee’s impeachment report revealed four phone calls between Nunes and Parnas on April 12, amid the smear campaign that ousted then-Ukraine Ambassador Marie Yovanovitch, including one which lasted longer than eight minutes. Parnas, who played a key role in Giuliani’s hunt for damaging information on former Vice President Joe Biden, was later indicted on campaign finance charges. Prosecutors have said he is still under investigation for more crimes.However, Nunes now claims that he cannot not recall speaking with Parnas.
