It’s time for Hillary Clinton to go to the doctor. And not just any doctor. It’s time for her to go to the physician in charge of the White House Medical Unit. And that doctor should certify for the American public that Hillary Clinton is healthy.
And Donald Trump needs to go to the doctor. And not just any doctor. It’s time for him to go to the physician in charge of the White House Medical Unit. And that doctor should certify for the American public that Donald Trump is healthy.
Because Donald Trump is 70 and Hillary Clinton is 68 years old. They are not young. They running for the highest office in the country- to become the most powerful person in the world. The presidency is not an easy job. It’s exhausting. It ages people.
The American people deserve to know if their candidates are up to the job.
I want to know if Hillary Clinton is healthy enough to be president.
I want to know if Donald Trump is (mentally) healthy enough to be president.
Ronald Reagan had Alzheimer’s while in office- a disease which affects memory and decision making.
John F. Kennedy had Addisons and several other ailments that at times left him physically and mentally compromised.
These men had the power to launch nuclear missiles and send American soldiers to war.
The American people had a right to know if these men were up to making those decisions.
Modern medicine is wonderful and it allows people to live longer and more productive lives. But the body still ages.
I know that I am significantly more tired than I was 10 years ago, and I have only been allowed to run for the presidency for 6 years.
After her near collapse at the 9/11 memorial, Hillary Clinton must release her health records. They are now a legitimate part of the conversation. Shr should have done it before.
But beyond Hillary, Donald Trump and all future presidential candidates should release their medical records to the public. We deserve that. Too many lives hang in the balance to simply take a candidate’s word for it.
Any candidate who refuses to be forthcoming on their health should be deemed unqualified to hold office.
And for God’s sake, would someone younger please run ?
