Obama's doc pissed off the president's in good health

Obama health official blasts Trump's physical exam: 'No doctor can predict someone’s future health'

The official who was previously tapped by former President Obama to lead the U.S. response to the Ebola crisis, slammed the White House physician’s recent memo summarizing President Trump’s second physical health exam in office.

“No doctor can predict someone’s future health,” Ronald Klain, who also served as chief of staff to former Vice President Joe Biden, said in a tweet on Saturday morning.

“This is a disgrace to an office with a great tradition of professionalism. Just another institution turned into a joke by a President determined to make anyone willing to submit an instrument of his lies,” he continued

His tweet came a day after Sean Conley, the physician to the president, declared in a memo summarizing Trump’s recent exam that he was in “very good health.”

Conley also said in the brief memo that he anticipates the president would remain in good health “for the duration of his presidency, and beyond.”

The memo did not provide further details about the president’s assessment.

Conley said reports and recommendations regarding the president’s health are “still being finalized,” indicating more information could be released at a later date.

The exam marked the second physical Trump received as president.

I'm greatly confused; don't insurance companies use physicians all the time, to speculate on longevity?

And myself, I have a piece of paper for other purposes in which four physicians estimate my future health, although it's had to be revised three times the past twenty-two months; nobody's perfect.

I think the guy's just pissed off because it looks likely the president's going to be around for a while yet.
