Barack Obama’s personal physician, Dr. David Scheiner, compared the health of the two presidential candidates of America.
He commented on the health of Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton when he appeared as a guest in CNN’s OutFront with Erin Burnett Tuesday.
Ben Carson, a retired neurosurgeon and former presidential candidate refused to comment on Clinton’s health, but Scheiner didn’t.
Scheiner was asked by Burnett if he thinks that the release of a two-page letter from Clinton’s doctor assuring the public of her health is sufficient. In the letter was written: “She had follow up testing in 2013 which revealed complete resolution of the effects of the concussion, as well as total dissolution of the thrombosis. Mrs. Clinton also tested negative for all clotting disorders.”
Burnett asked: “Is that enough?” and Scheiner replied: “No. First of all she’s also 68-years-old. While I think that medical letter was well-written and very professional… It’s not enough.”
According to Scheiner, the medicine that Clinton is taking to prevent blood clots must be monitored. He said: “I’d like to know how well she is being controlled. That’s a difficult drug to use.” The blood thinner, Coumadin, can be a really dangerous medication. Yes, it can prevent blood clots but it can, also, put patients in stupor and cause a fall. In some cases, can even lead to internal bleeding.
“I think she should have had a neurological examination, a thorough neurological examination in 2016,” Scheiner said. “We know what happens to football players who have had concussions, how they begin to lose their cognitive ability.”
He also concluded: “I think both of them should release their records.”
Scheiner was worried about Trump’s health as well, stating that at 70-years-old he would be the oldest president to enter the White House. Not being totally satisfied with the letter he received from Trump’s doctor, he asked for more details.
Burnett close the interview asking Scheiner who he would be voting for. His answer was: “I have misgivings about Hillary Clinton, but by far she is superior to him. He scares the devil out of me.”
