Following in the footsteps of The Twilight Saga: Dawn, President Donald Trump has decided to stretch his annual physique in two parts. At least that's what he said in a tweet right after midnight last night.
Unlike its two previous annual physical exams at the Walter Reade National Military Medical Center in Bethesda, Maryland, this trip was not announced in advance by the White House, nor was it on its official public schedule, according to CNN.
In an additional change, Trump took his motorcade to the hospital, while on previous trips he made Marine One. There were no weather problems on Saturday to prevent helicopter travel.
Any unusual presidential activity tends to raise eyebrows, but considering this came shortly after the Congressional impeachment inquiry began and two days after former Trump agent Roger Stone was convicted on seven counts of lying to Congress, witnessing adulteration and obstruct a House investigation. In Trump's campaign, it was possible to understand if POTUS needed a Rolaid industrial force.
Former US political analyst and helmsman George Takei offered some medical advice from an octogenarian: "To lower your blood pressure, get plenty of rest, exercise daily, and stop doing unthinkable acts such as witness intimidation and obstruction of justice."
The two-part annual physical exams are unusual (a Google search for the phrase returns only one giant emoji), but White House press secretary Stephanie Grisham said the two-hour visit was to take advantage of "a free weekend in Washington DC" in anticipation of "a very busy 2020".
Trump's last annual annual exam was in February this year.
