Not only are we left to question the real reason that Trump rushed to the hospital on Saturday, we are left to trust the White House press secretary’s word that he came back to the White House at all, and is healthy as of today. The only official press report regarding Trump and his whereabouts today includes a note that Trump met with the head of the Federal Reserve Bank in the residence today. There is no explanation for why the meeting did not occur in the West Wing. Chris Hayes asked on Twitter: Did Trump make it out of the residence today? Do we know? — Chris Hayes (@chrislhayes) November 18, 2019 This followed the news that the “meeting” occurred in the residence: A White House official tells me this morning’s Fed meeting took place in the White House residence – the president’s personal quarters- not in the West Wing, where the Oval Office is. I am told the president has not yet been in the West Wing today. — Eamon Javers (@EamonJavers) November 18, 2019 Why has Trump not been in the West Wing today? Why did no one see him come back from Walter Reed? No one on record states that he or she saw Trump return to the White House. We only have word from the White House press secretary Stephanie Grisham, who has not held a single news conference in her tenure. I am not trying to invent a “scandal” or insinuate anything, other than the fact that Chris Hayes wouldn’t be just tweeting out questions like the one above if he didn’t have a reason to wonder if something was amiss. This wouldn’t be a problem were it not for the fact that this White House has zero credibility. Its “word” means nothing. We cannot trust Trump, his White House staff, none of them. I will keep my eye on things. But I am not the only one wondering. Has Trump actually been seen since leaving for Walter Reed on Sat am? Do we have any actual idea how he is? Or frankly, where he is? — Krystie DeMello (@DemelloKrystie) November 18, 2019 More After a mysterious hospital visit POTUS is taking high-level meetings in his jammies. What is wrong with his health that the WH is concealing? — MizParse (@MizParse) November 18, 2019 And there are a million more on that theme. The point is, Trump made an unplanned visit to the hospital on Saturday, no one is buying his excuse, and to the extent that reports have him back in the White House, he took an important meeting “in the residence” today. That is all we know. UPDATE: From Chris Hayes Twitter Feed: Updated: WH officials say yes he did go over to the oval today. — Chris Hayes (@chrislhayes) November 18, 2019 I still don’t know that anyone saw him. Strange stuff. The topic is now being covered on Hardball. They are discussing just how strange the entire incident has been. **** Peace, y’all Jason email@example.com and on Twitter @MiciakZoom
Sometimes people in Washington get it plain wrong!
If conservatives support police killing citizens without justification, climate denial, fact denial, science denial, racist and misogynistic behavior, or a litany of other absurd points of view about numerous important issues, we call them out.
