Ronny Jackson, the former White House doctor, is running for congress in Kansas (poor Kansas, haven’t they suffered enough?), so of course the NY Times has to write a puff piece for him. Jackson has the endorsement of the Trump crime family, which ought to be sufficient to round up the support of the far right, but to make sure the centrist propaganda organ of the nation has to weigh in, too.
The only thing interesting is the closing paragraphs.
During his infamous news conference, Mr. Jackson said his goal was to help Mr. Trump lose 10 to 15 pounds and that he planned to bring an exercise bike or elliptical machine into the White House residence.
Mr. Jackson said those plans never came to pass. (Mr. Trump had gained four pounds by his following physical.) “The exercise stuff never took off as much as I wanted it to,” he said. “But we were working on his diet. We were making the ice cream less accessible, we were putting cauliflower into the mashed potatoes.”
Good grief. Trump really is a creature of impulsive appetites, isn’t he? He has a doctor on call, which sounds like a wonderful idea to me, but Trump ignores his advice altogether to the point that they have to resort to subterfuge to get him to do anything, like a child.
Maybe they could strap his phone to his exercise bike, so he has to sit on the bike to use it? Power the phone with a generator so he has to pedal to use Twitter? Nah, far easier to just have Ben Garrison draw him as slim and muscular.
