The health of the President

John F. Kennedy was, in all likelihood, the sickest world leader of the twentieth century:

The medical records reveal that Kennedy variously took codeine, Demerol and methadone for pain; Ritalin, a stimulant; meprobamate and librium for anxiety; barbiturates for sleep; thyroid hormone; and injections of a blood derivative, gamma globulin, a medicine that combats infections.

During the Bay of Pigs fiasco in 1961, and the Cuban Missile Crisis in October 1962, Kennedy was taking steroids for his Addison’s disease, painkillers for his back, anti-spasmodics for his colitis, antibiotics for urinary tract infections, antihistamines for his allergies, and on at least one occasion, an anti-psychotic drug to treat a severe mood change that Jackie Kennedy believed was brought on by the antihistamines.

This deluge of drugs often had side effects, including grogginess or even depression. To treat this Kennedy took still more anti-anxiety medications.

 
Meanwhile, the ABC’s Washington-based stenographer for the Democrat Party, Emily Olsen, today published a hysterical “analysis” of President Trump’s medical treatment. She wants the troof but suspects a conspiracy is afoot to make him well again.

    The MD sounds like a quack, making a diagnosis without examining a patient.

  2. My professional opinion is that Donald J. Trump is impaired to the extent that he is not mentally, emotionally, or cognitively fit to meet the demands of the Presidency; and that he is unable to preserve, protect, and defend the Constitution as required by his Oath of Office.

    But Biden is OK?
    Riiight!

  3. Gerry

    The ethics of many leftist conservatives (there’s nothing progressive about them) …….”whatever it takes” ….didn’t work well in another place and won’t work well in US politics

  4. 132andBush

    One thing is for sure, TDS will enter the medical literature as an identifiable condition.

  5. TDS will enter the medical literature

    It should also enter the dictionary (if not already) as a legitimate phrase.

  6. herodotus

    ABC News this morning is running the “he’s really bad” lines from CNN and BBC.
    No surprises there.

  7. Bruce of Newcastle

    MD’s have been diagnosing Trump from afar for a while now. Certainly there was a whole bunch of various lefty psychiatrists who did so, which caused several headlines in the MSM. It’s all just the usual TDS.

    Compare with RBG who was literally taken out of the Supreme Court in a box. No one ever said anything other than she was tough and heroic to keep serving despite multiple cancer treatments.

  8. Petros

    Neither unethical nor illegal. It is, however, stupid and unprofessional. Would a lawyer, accountant, mechanic, builder etc profer a public opinion on something in their respective fields without being privy to the details of the pertinent case?

  9. min

    The same goes for all the psychiatric or psychological diagnoses without interviews although repeated patterns of behaviour can be observed from media performances .
    Interesting medical history of JFK , the only other world leader that I have heard who has been up to the eyeballs medicated , was Hitler and he was areal kook with what was injected into him.eg amphetamines every day.

  10. We discussed loss of ‘spirit’ in the last thread. Has this ‘doctor’ lost his spirit, or is this another case of mental illness? Physician, heal thyself.

  11. John Comnenus

    Have I got this right? Initially after Trump was Hospitalised the narrative was that the doctors were covering up the severity of his condition – was he ever on a ventilator? Now the same people are saying Trump was never sick to start with – it was all just a hoax to gain sympathy.

    Trump has a super power the likes of which we have never seen – his very presence seems to get the media and the left to reveal what truly horrible and borderline insane people they really are. I have never seen anything like it.

    After their wild swings on what constitutes the truth the media will return To telling us we can’t trust the White House.

  12. calli

    They’re running several scenarios except the most realistic one.

    – it’s not true, but a political ploy to garner sympathy
    – he’s much, much sicker than they say so replace him – now
    – he’s a super-spreader and therefore dangerous – lock him down
    – he might look okay now, but will get rooly, rooly sick tomorrow
    – he’s been really mean to sick people in the past, so he deserves it, so just die

    Watching the heads spin as they navigate all these at once is hilarious.

  13. Shane

    Hmm, how do we ever know what we think we know.
    I certainly wouldn’t know.
    There is a lot of comment going around about that last posted video of DJT re the slight but still discernible up & down movement of the presidential flag & table that Trump is sitting at.
    So there is either a handheld camera being used or at a stretch, it’s being filmed aboard a moving plane or more likely a very large ship.

    https://thecommonsenseshow.com/agenda-21-conspiracy-economics/deep-cover-sources-reveal-intelligence-information-indicate-four-assassination-teams-have-been
    [Interesting that currencylad opened with JFK as he did.]

    ”…..Following a discovered plot against JFK, obtained by undercover Miami PD detectives nine days before the assassination, JFK was kept on the move, until the fateful day, 10 days later, in Dallas. President Trump is being kept on the move, do not believe the media reports as to his real location, and this is being done to keep Trump from suffering the same fate as JFK. …”

  14. notafan

    Haters on Twitter venting hyperbolically, not noticing the near 200,000 likes on Trump tweet an hour ago..

    Really nasty stuff a lot of it. Where did this rage cone from?
    Most of these people are comfortable middle class, some extremely wealthy people.

  15. calli

    Add that to my list, Shane.

    If you’re President, your life is in danger. That’s just the way it is in the States. No wonder Melania always looks tense.

  16. Trump is now on intravenous steroids to treat inflammation. Things aren’t improving, they’re getting worse. Not especially serious yet though.

    He is definitely not getting out on Monday given he is still in the middle of several courses of drugs.

    I hope he doesn’t succumb to the side effects of the drug cocktails like Michael Jackson and Prince. The disease is bad enough without having to cope with adverse reactions.

    Trump is dead and has been replaced by an android playing back past utterances.

    His last vid was just historical random phrases stitched together and deepfaked.

  19. one old bruce

    As always you have an interesting and stimulating take, CL.

    But one quibble – historical context. The amount of drugs *everyone* took at least from the WW2 era onwards would shock many now if they really tried to understand the way what was once normal has changed through the decades. JFK was heavily medicated and very sick no doubt, but was he even unusual at the time?

    I’m just suggesting that JFK may not have been ‘sickest’. More like he was just typical of the time. IIRC the Suez Crisis was blamed on Eden’s being heavily medicated for example. It looks like the tip of the iceberg really.

    “Breathtaking,” said Lisa, as Micheal tut-tuts and shakes his head.

  21. cuckoo

    My preferred scenario is that they give Trump an unrepeatable cocktail of experimental medications and gamma radiation which bestows on him immortality and superpowers. You won’t like him when he’s angry.

  22. notafan

    Could be. I remember Nicholas Ray’s 1956 movie Bigger than life about an average Joe who goes crazy after becoming addicted to then-experimental cortisone.

    Is this true, or did or get it from the MSM (or lefty blogs, much the same thing)?

  25. John Comnenus

    But Monty told us Trump is getting worse.

    Body double, yep that’s it. Was it really Trump behind that mask? Or was it the android? There was a recent spate of UFO activity over Washington – I reckon the reptilians have returned to keep Trump alive, or clone him and rapidly age the replica.

    There can be no other explanation for the inexplicable. Unless, and I know this sounds far fetched and conspiratorial, Trump is responding to the treatment …. no, that can’t be right.

    Where is Putin at the moment? Is he really wearing the Doctor Conlon skin suit whilst secretly neuroprogramming Trump? Yes just like Tom Cruise in Mission Impossible III wearing the Philip Seymour Hoffman 3D printed face mask. That was so real I thought it was actually Seymour Hoffman, not Tom Cruise behind a mask.

  26. Snoopy

    The NYT, so yes.

  27. John Comnenus

    Trump is dead, he is on a ship, he is on a plane, he is on Mars……or maybe at the Walter Reed hospital. No, that’s too obvious. He is on a plane to Moscow…..

  29. Ed Case

    Eden was just incompetent, tranquilisers didn’t help.
    JFK was so chronically ill his entire adult life opinion is he wouldn’t have lived to Sixty anyway.
    Smoking was very common among Men thru to about 1975, women took Compound Analgesics
    until Bex and Vincents were withdrawn.
    Then came the Big Pharma deluge and popularisation of drinking in the home, something that had
    previously been ostracised.

  31. John Comnenus

    Dear Doctor Monty,

    I have recently had some lower back pain, and after reading your latest post, Collum Algesia. Can you help? There is no other medical assistance I can avail myself of in my hour of dire need. Please respond urgently, my condition is serious.

  32. Bronson

    Monty = Tamaldge diagnosis by seance or is a variation of Rene Descartes ‘I thunk therefore it are’. Tamaldge should be censured by what ever equivalent of the AMA exists in US. Offering an opinion as a doctor in a medical case in which he has no details is dangerously unprofessional.
    As for young Emily when will our ABC make her mind up for her is the narrative it’s all a con or he is dangerously ill? FMD and we have to pay for this shit.

  33. notafan

    No-one actually said that Monty, though he looked pretty good in his brief video recorded shortly before the car ride.

  34. liliana

    The left thought they had it in the bag with Hillary then along came the great disruptor. He laid bare the putrid swap that is Washington and pulled the rug from under the global socialist agenda – this was unfathomable to ‘progressives’ . They simply cannot process that someone can and did go against their great plan and refuses to play by the ‘rules’. TDS is a fascinating phenomena and one day will be as well known as ‘Stockholm Syndrome’.

  35. John Comnenus

    Dear Doctor Monty,

    I was previously comfortable believing media tropes and spin I was fed by the MSM and disbelieving my lying eyes. Since an onset of acute Veritas Trumposis, I have started believing my lying eyes. I keep seeing things I don’t want to see. Can you help me to get back to the position of comfort where I believe the narrative I am fed?

  36. John C, I recommend getting someone to punch you in the face. This is not a medical cure, but it would make one of us feel better.

  37. John Comnenus

    Dear Doctor Monty,

    I punched myself in the face, as per your expert diagnosis and prescription, but it didn’t help. Have you any other advice for this long suffering patient?

  38. John C, I strongly recommend a strict dose of not posting at the Cat for at least a week.

  39. John Comnenus

    Dear Doctor Monty,

    You seem to be unhappy in ministering your medical knowledge to those of us in need of your expert clinical assistance. Can I recommend you take a bex and have a good lie down til you overcome your current bout of the Trump Derangement vapours?

  43. While in that car, Trump probably still had his cannula in and would have been hooked back up to the IV as soon as he returned to his rooms. You don’t want to be reinserting a cannula at a whim, they can be bastards of things.

  44. Mother Lode

    Neither unethical nor illegal.

    I am surprised that it is not considered unethical – the standards of professional ethics being higher than mere law.

    If anyone who acts on this level of advice – because he is a doctor – it brings the profession into disrepute.

    I can see that it might not be illegal. There are already laws covering malpractice, economic loss etc. so an accountant dispensing advice to people at a BBQ can be liable for any losses or fines they incur.

    Here are the lyrics

    I walk along a thin line darling
    Dark shadows follow me
    Here’s where life’s dream lies disillusioned
    The edge of reality
    Oh I can hear Trump’s voices echo
    Laughing with mockery
    The border line of doom I’m facing
    The edge of reality
    On the edge of reality Trump sits there tormenting me
    The man with the nameless face
    On the edge of reality where Trump overpowers me
    With fears that I can’t explain
    Trump drove me to the point of madness
    The brink of misery
    If Trump’s not real then I’m condemned to
    The edge of reality
    On the edge of reality Trump sits there tormenting me
    The man with the nameless face
    On the edge of reality where Trump overpowers me
    With fears that I can’t explain
    Trump drove me to the point of madness
    The brink of misery
    If Trump’s not real then I’m condemned to
    The edge of reality
    Reality, reality, reality, reality,
    Reality, reality, reality, reality.

    mUnty, go and see a doctor. You’re obviously having an anxiety attack. Trump looks just great! I saw the video he posted just 1 hour ago. Strong and healthy. Some reports say he will be back at the WH in a day or so. Isn’t that awesome?

    I never doubted his quick recovery for a minute, mainly because you were harping on how severe he was affected and close to death.

    Thanks mUnty, you are the best wrongologist. Always reliable.

    ABC tv this morning running the line that there are “confusing reports about Trump’s condition”. That is because they are using other networks ‘reports’ such as CNN which are throwing everything they can think of into the mix.

    The real confusion is coming from the fact that he is not being subject to treatment denial like everyone who died. He’s getting the proper protocol. So of course he’s not going to be all that sick. So long as he rests and gets prompt treatment he should be fine.

  59. John Comnenus

    The ABC is confused because they have been telling us how deadly the disease is and it’s incurable…then Trump got it and they thought “yes the Trump beast will finally be vanquished”… but no he rises again like a bright orange Phoenix from the ashes of the latest hoax. So the ABC is confused, is the COVID not that deadly? Is the COVID treatable OR is Trump superhuman or protected by divine providence.

    You can see the options twisting their brains so tight that with contradictory thoughts that their heads will eventually explode. They are confused because they believe their own bull shit.

    “My professional opinion is that Donald J. Trump is impaired to the extent that he is not mentally, emotionally, or cognitively fit………………”

    And it is my opinion that any doctor who reaches such a “professional” conclusion without ever having examined or even met the “patient” is a quack who does not deserve the title “doctor” let alone “professional”. Even worse, by wearing his opinion on his shirt sleeve in this manner he is declaring himself to be a malicious political actor and nothing more.

  66. Catlady

    Trump is sexy for an older guy. I imagine he would go off in the boudoir. Though grabbing a fist full of his hair while rocking and rolling might not be wise.

    REVIEW-JOURNAL ENDORSEMENT: President of the United States

    For all his flaws, Donald J. Trump stands in forceful contrast to the relentless progressive attacks on this nation that deny and minimize the advances we have made over the decades to better reflect and honor our founding ideals. We must continue moving forward, that can’t be denied. But we must do so while embracing rather than destroying the principles of liberty and freedom that have made the United States a beacon for the rest of the world. Mr. Trump appreciates this while offering an economic vision well-suited to helping the country rebound from this pandemic. He deserves a second term.

    Trump Runs the Country From Walter Reed as Biden Calls Another Lid (4 Oct)

    President Trump doesn’t seem to be letting his COVID-19 diagnosis slow him down. According to reports, he’s still working hard at his job.

    But Joe Biden, once again, called a lid at 9:16 a.m. Eastern Time on Sunday morning.

    Wow, he made it to just after 9 am! Stamina!

  72. Ed Case

    ***Was JFKs drug taking known publicly at the time?***
    Hell no.
    The press of the day was full of stories of Jack on the golf course, Jack yachting at Hyannisport, Jack the Swimmer, while the reality was that he was in agony from botched back operations and Addison’s Disease and was dependent on drugs to just get out of bed.
    They did a rerun of this bullshit with RBG.

  73. President Trump doesn’t seem to be letting his COVID-19 diagnosis slow him down. According to reports, he’s still working hard at his job.

    d/ They pulled trigger & started dexamethasone. So they were clearly concerned. Given documented low O2, dex definitely was indicated.

    e/ Said they’re starting to plan for possible discharge, as early as tomorrow. Even w/ WH’s medical capacity, that seems like an awful call. 5/8

    f/ Yes, they could give his last doses of IV remdesivir in WH, but still risky to discharge. In RECOVERY trial (which proved value of dexamethasone), mortality rate in TREATMENT group for pts requiring O2 was 23.3% (vs. 26.2% in usual care). A nearly 1-in-4 risk of death. (6/8)

    Things are progressing fairly badly. We’re days away from the worst of it and he’s already down below 80% chance to live. He needs a bit of luck now, and not to sabotage his own recovery with too many wacky drugs.

    They’re also admitting they’re saying that in part to keep Trumps spirits up. And their interventions (oxygen, steroids, experimental drugs) aren’t consistent with ‘doing fine’.

    OK, take your slant on things,
    What are you and Monty going to say if he comes out of this hale and shiny?

    Err nothing? It’s still the most likely outcome.

    He’s clearly doing a little worse than we are being told, but nowhere near as badly as some others with covid. That may still change, but we will likely only find out after the fact.

    * Other than Lizzy’s brother but I think it was a stroke? RIP.

    Yes. A very bad stroke. That’s the one that gets so many of us these days.
    Think I might stay on the blood thinners. 🙂

    In the UK I’ve mentioned two friends who both got in, and the husband’s mother (with many comorbidities) died with it in their home while the wife nursed her. The NHS didn’t look after them very well at all so no wonder the two of them, by no means old, caught it from his mum; they’re OK now though.
