Health Truthers: Media Pushing Conspiracy Theories to Prove Trump Is Deathly Ill and Also Insane

Maggie Haberman, height/BMI truther:

Apparently the Neo-Autistics in the media don't understand that most people are not exactly an integer height in inches, and many are in the middle of two integer heights, and will sometimes write down one and sometimes the other.

At CNN, they just can't accept the White House doctor's conclusion that Trump has a healthy heart. (They also think that people only have heights in perfect integer steps.)

So, they're now ignoring their usual mantra of "trust the experts" and calling in Alternative Fact experts to declare that Trump actually has heart disease.

Here's a supercut of the press corpse (I did that on purpose) asking Trump's doctor twenty two times if he is crazy or demented.

CNN, and maybe Hot Air too, is playing Cognitive Acuity Truther by goofing on the cognitive function test that Trump got a 30 out of 30 on. I guess the joke is "Look how easy this is."

Well, let me explain this, idiots: Of course it's easy. It's not an IQ test. It's a test to determine if someone has a defect in brain function. So anyone without a defect in brain function will find it easy.

But, of course, the left (and many on the nominal #SalonHot25 right) have been claiming that Trump does indeed have a brain defect -- so yes, passing this easy (for those with normal-functioning brains) test does indeed refute that.

So I guess goalposts are now shifting to a different claim, that Trump may not be cognitively impaired, but he's still plenty dumb.

Well, there is no 25th Amendment procedure for removing a president that you think is too dumb.

Sorry, Health Truthers. Try again.

Here's a good question:

Remember when questioning whether Hillary Clinton had some kind of motor coordination/brain function problem got you branded a crazy conspiracist?

My, how times have changed.
