In early 2017, two days after Donald Trump’s longtime personal physician, Dr. Harold Bornstein (that kook, above) gave an interview to The New York Times, three men — including Trump’s then bodyguard, Keith Schiller — showed up in Bornstein’s office and took all of Trump’s medical records in what Bornstein calls a “raid.” There apparently was no release form to take the records, according to Bornstein, and they were the only copies of the records that Bornstein possessed.
The raid also came two days after Trump’s longtime assistant rejected Bornstein’s offer to become the White House physician in light of that Times interview. “So you wanted to be the White House doctor? Forget it, you’re out,” the assistant told Bornstein, according to NBC News.
So, what was in that interview that set Donald Trump off? That compelled him to send his bodyguard and two other men to collect his medical records and sever his 35-year relationship with Bornstein?
Uh, it was because Bornstein told the NYTimes that he prescribed Propecia — which helps prevent hair loss — for Trump. He also told the Times that he prescribed Trump medication for his rosacea, a skin disease that causes redness.
That explains why Trump looks orange.
Anyway, Bornstein is revealing now that the “raid” took place because he feels vindicated somehow after Ronny Jackson was fired as the White House physician.
But don’t feel bad for Bornstein. He’s an asshole, too. Remember when he said that Trump “would be the healthiest president in history”? Well, 1) He wrote that in 5 minutes while a limo waiting to take the note parked outside his office, and 2) Bornstein said, “I like that sentence, to be quite honest with you, and all the rest of them are either sick or dead.”
President Obama begs to differ.
.@KaciSokoloff just spoke w Dr. Harold Bornstein, who refused an interview but said that NBC's piece was "a pretty good story." Bornstein also said that he spoke to the NBC reporter “in the bathroom” of his office. He signed off with: "Sweetheart, this is watergate, goodbye!"— Jacqueline Alemany (@JaxAlemany) May 1, 2018
