WATCH: Dr. Sanjay Gupta Says Trump’s Doctors are “Hiding Things”
Donald Trump has been in the hospital since Friday night. The public is very eager to hear news about his condition. His spokespersons and doctors, though, have refused to be transparent. On Sunday, Dr. Sean Conley admitted that he is trying to paint a rosy picture to appease the president.
The contradictions from Conley have been especially troubling to trained medical professionals. On Sunday night, Sanjay Gupta spoke with CNN about the current predicament. According to the doctor, Trump’s doctors are hiding things from the American people.
“I’d have to say that they’re hiding things,” he began. “[Conley is] clearly… being told what to say and what not to say and how to present things.”
Gupta continued, “We need to know that status of his lungs. It’s unbelievable to me that we’ve asked that question so many times…Interestingly, they said his cardiac, liver and kidney function are normal or improving. Well, improving from what? Because you said they were normal yesterday as well, so were they not normal at some point.”
The Doctor ended by questioning the timeline that’s been given to the American public. “This whole story still doesn’t make sense,” he said. “He was diagnosed on Thursday night and had such a quick decline? Not likely.”
