Trump Met by Protests, Mockery at NCAA Game

President Trump on Monday was met with jeers as he made his way onto the field of the NCAA championship football game in Atlanta, where protesters projected the message “f*ck Trump” on the front of the stadium. Trump’s appearance at the game—where he took the field to sing “The Star-Spangled Banner”—also triggered scorn from Alabama running back Bo Scarbrough, who appeared to yell “f*ck Trump” ahead of the high-stakes game against Georgia. Trump, who famously feuded with NFL players who chose to kneel during the national anthem to protest racial inequality, was met with equal disdain from Atlanta’s NAACP chapter. The group urged those attending the game to wave white towels to simulate a “mighty storm” of “snowflakes.” The president stuck around long enough to sing along to part of the national anthem, though footage showed him apparently singing the wrong words. He left before the halftime performance of Kendrick Lamar, who has previously slammed the president as a “chump.”


Trump greeted by mix of cheers and boos at NCAA title game

President Donald Trump walked onto the field of the NCAA College Football Playoff championship Monday night, greeted by a smattering of applause and boos before he stood with ROTC members for the national anthem.

Flanked by ROTC members from the Universities of Alabama and Georgia, the two schools playing in the game, Trump walked out onto the field in Atlanta and remained standing for the national anthem. Footage of his brief appearance shows the commander in chief singing along to the national anthem.

Trump's 'Real' Work Schedule Is Really Code For Lie-Ins, Relaxing And TV Time
Donald Trump is reportedly spending even more time watching TV and tweeting, with several hours of his morning carved out for both activities, his schedule reveals. The president’s so-called “executive time” is meant for relaxing, according to Axios, which claims to have a copy.

Satire from The Borowitz Report
Trump: I Am the Smartest Person in the Room

WASHINGTON (The Borowitz Report)—Donald J. Trump doubled down on his claims of being a genius on Saturday by surrounding himself with the most intelligent people he knows and proclaiming himself “the smartest person in the room.”

Referring to the associates gathered in the Oval Office as “my Brain Trust,” Trump said, “Every one of these people is a stable genius, and I am by far stabler and more geniuser than any of them.”

Trump said that the collective brain power of the other people in the room was proof of how smart he was. “Anyone who was insecure about his own intelligence wouldn’t surround himself with such smart people,” he said. “That’s why you never saw people like this in the Oval Office when that dummy Obama was President.”

Having conclusively proved how smart and stable he is, Trump said that he would spend the rest of the day proving how mature he is. “I’m, like, the most mature person in the country,” he said, “and anyone who says I’m not can suck it.”

Trump at Risk for a Heart Attack With Dangerous Weight and Skyrocketing Cholesterol

The White House released details about President Donald Trump’s health on Friday after his annual medical exam—and numbers don’t lie. A statement from the White House on Friday said Trump is "extremely healthy." But the results of some basic screening tests look more concerning than those of his predecessor. Specifically, his weight and cholesterol could be putting him at risk for heart disease.

A military physician, Ronny Jackson, did the exam at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center. Jackson also performed former President Barack Obama’s last physical in March 2016.

Heart health is among the biggest concerns for a man Trump's age—he is 71. Determining the health of Trump’s heart relies on several factors, Dr. Elizabeth Roth, an internist at Massachusetts General Hospital, told Newsweek. Weight and cholesterol are two crucial issues.

Trump's Physical Revealed Serious Heart Concerns, Outside Experts Say


The New York Times
JAN. 17, 2018

WASHINGTON — Cardiologists not associated with the White House said
Wednesday that President Trump’s physical exam revealed serious heart
concerns, including very high levels of so-called bad cholesterol, which
raises the risk that Mr. Trump could have a heart attack while in office.

Dr. Ronny L. Jackson, a rear admiral and the White House physician, said
Tuesday in his report on the president’s medical condition that Mr.
Trump was in “excellent” cardiac health despite having an LDL
cholesterol level of 143, well above the desired level of 100 or less.

Dr. David Maron, the director of preventive cardiology at Stanford
University’s medical school, said Wednesday that it was alarming that
the president’s LDL levels remain above 140 even though he is taking 10
milligrams of Crestor, a powerful drug that is used to lower cholesterol
levels to well below 100.

Dr. Maron said he would “definitely” be worried about Mr. Trump’s
risk for having a heart attack if the president were one of his patients.
Asked if Mr. Trump is in perfect health, Dr. Maron offered a blunt reply:
“God, no.”

Other cardiologists also disputed Dr. Jackson’s rosy assessment of the
president’s heart health. Several said Mr. Trump’s goal should be to
get his LDL below 100, or even under 70. He has a real risk of having a
heart attack or stroke, especially considering his weight and lack of
exercise, they said.

Dr. Eric Topol, a cardiologist at the Scripps Research Institute, said
that it is impossible to ignore the dangers of the president’s elevated
cholesterol levels when providing an overall assessment of Mr. Trump’s

“That’s a really high LDL,” Dr. Topol said. “We’re talking about
a 70-plus-year-old man who is obese and doesn’t exercise. Just looking
at the lab value, you would raise a big red flag.”

He added: “I would never use the words ‘excellent health.’ How you
could take these indices and say excellent health? That is completely

During an appearance on Tuesday in the White House briefing room, Dr.
Jackson said he would be prescribing a higher dose of Crestor, the brand
name for rosuvastatin, to help lower the president’s LDL levels. All of
the cardiologists said that would be essential in trying to control Mr.
Trump’s risk of a heart attack, though several said they wondered
whether Mr. Trump was regularly taking his medicine as prescribed.

Dr. Daniel Rader, the director of the lipid clinic at the University of
Pennsylvania’s medical school, said that taking a daily dose of 10
milligrams of Crestor should reduce LDL levels by at least 30 percent,
which means that Trump’s LDL started out over 200, a dangerous level.

“One obvious question is, how long has he been on a statin?” Dr. Rader
said. “What was his LDL before he started taking it?”

He noted that a man who recently started taking a statin and who had an
LDL over 200 for most of his life is at much higher risk than someone
whose LDL was normal until recently and who then started taking a statin.

Dr. Jackson said he is also pressing Mr. Trump — who at 6-foot-3 and 239
pounds is just below the official label of obese — to eat better and
abandon his largely sedentary life for one that includes exercise.

But on the positive side, Dr. Jackson also said Mr. Trump had no history
of smoking or drinking and did not have diabetes. An exercise stress test
using a treadmill showed “above average” capacity for his age. An
ultrasound of the heart was normal, he said.

“His cardiac health is excellent,” Dr. Jackson said. “He doesn’t
smoke, he doesn’t have diabetes — a lot of the traditional risk
factors he doesn’t have. And so I think those things, in combination
with the excellent cardiac results that we got from the exercise stress
test, I think, are very reassuring.”

Asked whether Mr. Trump has heart disease, Dr. Jackson said he did not.
“Technically, he has nonclinical coronary atherosclerosis,” Dr.
Jackson told reporters.

Outside doctors — who have not directly examined Mr. Trump —
questioned that conclusion, saying that the combination of Mr. Trump’s
weight and the cardiac test results raised more concerns than Dr.
Jackson’s comments would reflect.

Dr. Sanjay Gupta, the chief medical correspondent for CNN, repeatedly
expressed concern on Wednesday about test results that showed Mr.
Trump’s coronary calcium score had increased to 133, from 34 in 2009. On
CNN, Dr. Gupta repeatedly showed a chart suggesting that levels above 100
indicate someone with heart disease.

That helped spark a flurry of activity on Twitter, where people debated
whether the president officially had heart disease, based on the lab
results released by Dr. Jackson and his comments to reporters.

Dr. Topol and the other cardiologists contacted Wednesday disagreed with
Dr. Gupta about the calcium test, which measures the amount of plaque
containing calcium in a person’s blood. Higher numbers indicate the
development of coronary artery disease, which could lead to dangerous
blockages in the heart.

But Dr. Topol said he would not be concerned unless a patient of Mr.
Trump’s age came to him with calcium levels of 700 or more.

“That tells you there’s some calcium,” he said. “It doesn’t tell
you whether that’s inside or outside the arteries. That doesn’t tell
me the risk.”

Dr. Rader and Dr. Maron said Mr. Trump’s calcium score does not mean
much. If people take statins their calcium scores go up because statins
help plaques heal and leave behind calcium-containing scar tissue.

“I have seen this so many times. I tell people who have been on statins
not to have it redone,” Dr. Rader said.

The cardiologists said the president’s weight and diet were a serious
problem that probably contributed to his high LDL level and increased his
risk for heart problems. Dr. Topol dismissed as irrelevant the debate
about whether the president technically met the definition of obese.

“Here the issue is, does he have abdominal obesity?” Dr. Topol said.
“I don’t care what his height is. All you have to do is look at his
abdomen. Abdominal obesity, that’s the machinery for inflammation for
the heart.”

Sarah Huckabee Sanders, the White House press secretary, stood behind Dr.
Jackson’s assessment of the president’s health, noting on Wednesday
that he has been a White House physician for 12 years, treating Presidents
George W. Bush and Barack Obama in addition to Mr. Trump.

“He is the only doctor that has weighed in on this matter that has
actually examined the president,” Ms. Sanders said. She called Dr.
Jackson “the only credible source when it comes to diagnosing any health

We support what he said yesterday 100 percent — that he is in excellent
health,” she said.

Several former members of Mr. Obama’s White House staff echoed that
praise of Dr. Jackson.

David Axelrod, who served as one of Mr. Obama’s top advisers in the
White House, said Tuesday on Twitter: “I knew Dr. Ronny Jackson in the
White House. In my experience, he was very good guy and straight

Even so, the cardiologists said Dr. Jackson understated the president’s
risk of having heart trouble. Dr. Maron calculated the president’s risk
of having a heart attack or stroke in the next 10 years, based on the high
LDL levels and normal blood pressure. The result placed him in the top 25
percent of the population.

“I would call that high,” Dr. Maron said.

With a bit of luck he’ll have a fatal heart attack on the golf course when he misses and easy putt and throws a ginormous tantrum.... He should do what the majority of golfers do and walk between his shots instead of getting on that ridiculous golf cart thing as he is not disabled in that way at all and exercise would do him good.... super grin

Trump: I ‘Scored Highest’ on Cognitive Test

President Trump took a swipe at his predecessors while defending his cognitive abilities Wednesday, telling Reuters that previous administrations left the North Korea issue for him to deal with because he “scored the highest on tests.” Noting his doctor’s announcement that he’d gotten a perfect score on a screening for neurological impairments, Trump referenced former presidents Barack Obama, Bill Clinton, and George W. Bush, claiming they didn’t do enough to curb North Korean leader Kim Jong Un’s threats. “I guess they all realized they’re going to have to leave it to a president that scored the highest on tests. What can I tell you?” he said. It was not immediately clear what led Trump to believe his scores surpassed those of previous presidents. White House physician Ronny Jackson told reporters Tuesday the president scored 30 out of 30 on a cognitive exam, but he declined to compare Trump’s results to those of his predecessors.
