    Now, however, another piece of the humanist in President Trump is showing through, as a debate over Congress’ ineffectual work on immigration rages. You see, today was supposed to be the annual congressional “picnic”, which is literally just a 5-star meal served in a tent to these Washington fat cats. That’s right: cancelled. When asked why, the President gave a very blue collar answer. As the immigration debacle looms large over the halls of Congress, President Donald Trump decided to scrap the lawmakers’ annual congressional picnic at the White House because it just didn’t feel “right.” “I was just walking...

    First lady Melania Trump underwent kidney surgery Monday at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center near Washington, DC, according to a statement from her office. Trump had been experiencing an issue with her kidney that her office described as benign but requiring medical attention. "This morning, first lady Melania Trump underwent an embolization procedure to treat a benign kidney condition. The procedure was successful and there were no complications," the first lady's communications director, Stephanie Grisham, said in a statement. "Mrs. Trump is at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center and will likely remain there for the duration of the...
  • How Dr. Walter Reed became a New Orleans hero

    The legacy: It was an annual plague. Every summer, as warm weather set in, New Orleans braced for an outbreak of yellow fever. Those who could afford it got the heck out, fleeing to the Northshore or farther. Those who couldn't, stayed. And they prayed. Nearly every year, hundreds of them would be killed anyway by the so-called "saffron scourge" -- sometimes thousands. Then, in 1900, a team led by Army doctor Walter Reed confirmed a key discovery: It was the mosquitoes. The winged pests weren't just annoying. They were deadly, spreading the virus that caused the disease. That breakthrough...

    During the White House press briefing Tuesday afternoon, Rear Admiral Dr. Ronny Jackson reported on the details of President Trump's recent physical, which was conducted last week at Walter Reed Medical Center in Washington D.C. "His health is excellent right now," Jackson said. "He's fit for duty for the remainder of this term and another term if he is elected." "All clinical data indicates that the President is currently very healthy, and that he will remain so for the duration of his presidency," he continued. "The purpose of the exam was to provide the public with an update of...
  • Trump did ‘exceedingly well’ on a cognitive test, top White House doctor says

    At the president’s request, Jackson said that he reviewed a number of cognitive tests and then administered the Montreal Cognitive Assessment during Trump’s first presidential physical exam on Friday afternoon at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center. The 10-minute exam is designed to detect mild cognitive impairment, generally in older patients. Trump answered all 30 questions correctly, Jackson said. The test includes asking a patient to name several animals, draw a clock with the hands at a certain time, copy a cube and recall a short list of words, among others. Jackson said he has “no indication whatsoever that he...

    Shortened title. Full title: Sarah Says Ceremony Trump Had in Serviceman’s Hospital Room Was “One of the Most Powerful Moments” in Her Life The holidays are a time to reflect on good fortune and spend time with family. But some of America’s bravest individuals have a hard time doing either. Wounded warriors at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center have a tough road ahead of them. Many face months — if not years — of recovery after being injured in combat. It’s easy to forget about our men and women stuck in hospital beds while much of the country gathers around...

    An anonymous commenter on Sunday’s Free Republic, Michelle Obama Plastic Surgery thread wrote the following: “In 2008 when I was on active duty, I had a service connected blowout fracture in my left lower eye orbit. I had a plate inserted at Bethesda (Ph # 301-319-4226) (now Walter Reed National Military Medical Center). A few months later, after I healed, the doctors noticed that my face was ASYMMETRICAL. They looked me over with a few appointments and gave me a CT scan. They had a plan to do another surgery to even out my face. After all of this planning,...

    The U.S. military has reversed a string of decisions that would have restricted access for severely wounded troops to a popular dining hall at Walter Reed hospital, after Fox News began reporting on complaints from veterans and their families. The military earlier this month decided to invalidate meal tickets and reduce hours for the Warrior Cafe, the sole dining facility in building 62 -- home to all multiple amputees and long-term, recovering patients at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center in Bethesda, Md. The wife of one of the veterans affected by the decision told Fox News on Thursday that...

    In a disturbing revelation about the treatment of America's most severely wounded troops, Fox News has learned the military earlier this month decided to invalidate meal tickets and reduce hours for the sole dining facility in the Walter Reed building where they are recovering. The decision affects the Warrior Cafe located inside building 62, home to all multiple amputees and long-term, recovering patients at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center in Bethesda, Md. The decision would mean wounded warriors who would normally have a government-funded meal just down the hall would have to walk, wheel or limp nearly a half-mile...
