Trump’s visit to Walter Reed ‘not protocol’ for routine visit, source says
This writer is very slick. He knows how to tell the facts in a way that doesn’t create a ‘breaking news’ story that everyone jumps on right away. THIS VISIT BY TRUMP WAS A PRIORITY EMERGENCY VISIT – FULL STOP! You must understand – Walter Reid Hospital is a very special and unique hospital, not just anyone can even go there- even if they are Active Military! You do NOT just waltz into Walter Reid Hospital because you have a splinter in your finger!! And it is NOT just a hospital – it is a giant medical campus facility with almost every specialist on staff that you could imagine. I sought an interview there while on active duty but was denied but I DID get the “tour”.
Read it and you will agree right away this is serious news and needs to be more closely examined and followed 24/7. But of course – the countries Liar-in-Chief will say NOTHING to us because “we don’t really matter” and will only use the information to further along his Impeachment – OF COURSE THAT IS WHAT WE WILL DO! HE IS THE PRESIDENT AND HE IS A LIAR and we must watch him with BOTH eyes at all times and we don’t want him ‘hangin’ round anymore.. ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha.. WHAT A FXCKIN’ DUMBASS.. LOLROTF!!!! The WH reporting on this hospital visit is bogus and totally transparent, they need to come clean!😳😜💩

Medical staff at Walter Reed did not get a staff-wide notice about a presidential visit to the medical center in Bethesda, Maryland, ahead of Trump’s arrival, according to that source.
Typically, Walter Reed’s medical staff would get a general notice about a “VIP” visit to the medical center ahead of a presidential visit, notifying them of certain closures at the facility. That did not happen this time, indicating the visit was a non-routine visit and scheduled last minute.
The source said it was possible a small group of doctors involved in Trump’s medical exams were notified before Trump arrived at Walter Reed, but said all medical staff at Walter Reed would typically be aware if the President was arriving for a routine medical exam.
His two previous physical exams in office were announced ahead of time by the White House and noted on his daily public schedule, but a source with knowledge of the matter told CNN Saturday that the President’s unannounced trip to the medical center was not even on the President’s internal schedule as of Saturday morning.
The President’s motorcade drove to the medical center unannounced, with reporters under direction not to report his movement until they arrived Saturday at Walter Reed. Trump typically takes the Marine One helicopter to Walter Reed, but on Saturday’s clear-skied day, the President opted for the motorcade.
A separate source familiar with the situation described Trump’s visit as “abnormal,” but added that Trump, 73, appeared to be in good health late Friday.
White House press secretary Stephanie Grisham, in response to a CNN request for comment on Sunday, said: “We’re not going to get into security and movement protocols when it comes to the President, but as my statements said he’s in good health and it was a routine checkup as part of his annual physical. I’ve given plenty of on the record statements that were truthful and accurate — actively trying to find and report conspiracy theories really needs to stop.”
