Q Sarah, a question about his health, after he appeared yesterday — just on his health, how he appeared yesterday.
MS. SANDERS: I’ll break the rules and I’ll come back. I know that there were a lot of questions on that — frankly, pretty ridiculous questions. The President’s throat was dry. Nothing more than that.
He does have a physical scheduled for the first part of next year, the full physical that most Presidents go through. That will take place at Walter Reed, and those records will be released by the doctor following that taking place.
These are the kinds of questions that should have been asked when Trump was a presidential candidate and refused to release his medical records.
