Trump denies 'mini-strokes' sent him to Walter Reed

President Trump on Tuesday denied that he made an emergency visit to the hospital last year after suffering “a series of mini-strokes” after a new book claimed that Vice President Pence was on standby in the event Trump was incapacitated.

The president’s denial raised eyebrows, as the book from New York Times correspondent Michael Schmidt did not specifically state that Trump had suffered from a series of small strokes.

“It never ends! Now they are trying to say that your favorite President, me, went to Walter Reed Medical Center, having suffered a series of mini-strokes. Never happened to THIS candidate — FAKE NEWS,” Trump tweeted, before insinuating that Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden may have dealt with health issues.


Schmidt reported in his new book that Pence was told to be on standby to assume presidential powers last November in the event the president had to be anesthetized during a previously unscheduled visit to Walter Reed Medical Center.

    So Trump is basically telling us that he had mini strokes.

    Denial is not a river in Egypt.

    The White House runs on constant denial. No one is allowed to admit that Trump is anything less than perfect. He’s a god to his cult of worshipers and gods are supposed to be perfect and immortal. To admit Trump is a mere mortal like everyone else would reduce him from god status in his cult’s eyes. So sick.

    The phrase in his tweet: “your favorite President , me” — as if no one would know he was referring to himself. Everything is about Donald Trump. The endless narcissism is nauseating.
