The full-fledged media meltdown over the President’s “excellent” health report continued over at ‘Morning Joe’ on Thursday, with host Joe Scarborough breathlessly claiming that Trump’s physician was a “political hack,” adding he was “questioning his motivations.”

“I’m sure this guy is a great guy, a great physician, blah, blah, blah. He shouldn’t have sounded so Trumpian first of all. Second of all, he works at a White House where just about everybody who makes public statements lies,” said Scarborough.
“The White House spokesman said we weren’t going to have a copy of the exam, made a point to say no copy. And suddenly we have a copy of the exam, and he can tell what lions, and rhinos, and giraffes, and little monkeys are?” asked Joe.
“Great, ok. That’s fine. It was Trumpian,” he added. “You won’t find a reputable doctor in America that will tell you getting four hours of sleep a night is good for you. Not a single respectable doctor in America would say what he said. Are we questioning his integrity? No, we’re not. I’m just questioning his motivations.”
“His own words are not the words of a physician, they’re the words of political hack,” said Scarborough.
