Trump’s ‘Bone Spurs’ Diagnosis Was Probably A Favor For Fred Trump And Nobody Is Surprised

While Trump was dropping by Iraq for a surprise visit following criticism about becoming the first president since 2002 to skip visiting the troops for Christmas, those darn journalists released some unsurprising news about the pesky bone spurs that kept him from fighting in Vietnam. According to the New York Times, the daughters of the podiatrist who made the diagnosis probably faked it in order to suck up to Trump’s daddy, Fred Trump.

“I know it was a favor,” said one daughter, Dr. Elysa Braunstein, 56, who along with her sister, Sharon Kessel, 53, shared the family’s account for the first time publicly when contacted by The New York Times.

Elysa Braunstein said the implication from her father was that Mr. Trump did not have a disqualifying foot ailment. “But did he examine him? I don’t know,” she said.

After that, Dr. Larry Braunstein basically got a direct line to Fred Trump, who owned the building where the podiatrist’s office was located.

While there are no “official documents” to “prove” that the bone spurs diagnosis was faked, it’s incredibly convenient that this problem materialized and was diagnosed right after Donald’s academic deferments ran out. Daddy Trump also has a long history of helping out his baby boy, including giving him $413 million over his lifetime in today’s dollars.

Needless to say, nobody was caught off guard by this. But that hasn’t stopped them from making fun of him.

Maybe Donald Trump should just stop trying. It would save us all a lot of time, and Trump and his family can focus on getting all their things stored away before they head off to prison.
