Following the footsteps of Russian leader Vladimir Putin, President Donald Trump boasted to his fans at his “homecoming” rally on November 27 in Sunrise, Florida about his “gorgeous chest,” which he claims proves he didn’t have a heart attack on November 17.
The president also claimed his visit to Texas on November 18 was more proof of his good health.
Speculation about the President Trump’s real health status went viral on social media with his unscheduled and sudden visit to the Walter Reed Army Medical Center (WRAMC), which is only some nine miles from the White House. The visit wasn’t on the president’s calendar.
President Trump said that his unannounced trip to Walter Reed was for a “a very routine physical.”
However, rumors about the president’s health problems, and that he might have had either a series of mini-strokes or have suffered a heart attack continued to swirl.
He blasted the media for reporting on his visit to Walter Reed, saying: “They [the media] said he wasn’t wearing a tie; this is a sign of a massive heart attack.
“They said, he went into the hospital – and it’s true, I didn’t wear a tie – why would I wear a tie if the first thing they do is say take off your shirt, sir, and show us that gorgeous chest?”
President Trump then took another step to assuring people he was fine. He tweeted a photoshopped picture of his unsmiling face superimposed on the body of fictional boxer Rocky Balboa, played by Sylvester Stallone.
