A re­port card on Pres­i­dent Trump’s health

Northwest Arkansas Democrat-Gazette - - EDITORIAL PAGE -

A few weeks past there were con­cerns ex­pressed in the news about the state of Pres­i­dent Don­ald Trump’s health. I have as­sem­bled my own re­port card of his con­di­tion, bro­ken down by three strengths and four prob­lems: Strengths

1. Man­ual dex­ter­ity — tweets with the best of them, from morn­ing ‘til night.

2. Flex­i­bil­ity — eas­ily flip flops on is­sues, and can bend over back­wards for Rus­sia.

3. Stamina—watches cable news all night and can still tweet early in the morn­ing. Prob­lems

1. Ears — can’t lis­ten to and take good ad­vice. 2. Speech — prone to crude, provoca­tive and ill-ad­vised words.

3. Im­pulse Con­trol — can’t do it … takes the bait ev­ery time and over­re­acts.

4. Vi­sion — clouded by self-in­ter­est, and can see only as far as his base.

Like any 71-year old man, Pres­i­dent Trump needs to fo­cus on im­prov­ing his health, and I sin­cerely hope and pray he will do so. The health of our coun­try de­pends on it!
