The questions surrounding Trump's trip to Walter Reed hospital, briefly explained - 2019-11-18
President Donald Trump made a trip to Walter Reed National Military Medical Center in Bethesda, Maryland, as White House press secretary Stephanie Grisham put it, to "begin portions of his routine annual physical exam" on Saturday. But there are indications the trip wasn't as routine as the White House would have the public believe.
To be clear, there's no hard evidence that Trump's trip to the hospital was anything more more than a 73-year-old man being proactive about his health. But the White House's complete lack of credibility on issues from crowd size to foreign affairs makes it disconcertingly easy to disbelieve what officials say.
While there would likely be fewer questions surrounding Trump's health if the White House hadn't long established a reputation for lying about everything, there are a number of indicators that something out of the norm went down on Saturday afternoon.
