Are you all jazzed over Donald Trump’s big health reveal on Dr. Oz? Don’t be. It’s not happening. CNN’s Brian Stelter just tweeted the news:
Contrary to yesterday's report on Fox, Oz will NOT be reviewing the results of Trump's recent physical, spox says: https://t.co/YPH2ZTnuB7

Stelter explains on CNNMoney:
Donald Trump is taping an appearance on “The Dr. Oz Show” Wednesday morning — a move straight out of his TV-based campaign playbook.
But if viewers are expecting a big reveal about Trump’s physical fitness, they are likely to be disappointed.
Contrary to a claim made on Fox News Tuesday, Oz will not be reviewing the results of Trump’s recent physical, campaign spokeswoman Hope Hicks told CNNMoney Wednesday morning.
Instead, Trump will be talking with Oz about his physical activity, dietary habits, and broader health-related issues.
Of course, it was never destined to be what Americans really want or deserve. Executive editor for CNN Politics Mark Preston told Alisyn Camerota on CNN’s New Day that, “If anyone is putting money down that they think they’re going to get intricate details about Donald Trump’s health, you’re going to lose the bet.” According to Preston, even before this latest news, “there’s going to be more questions that come out of this than are actually answered.”
It is just that while we knew we weren’t going to get a lot, we now know we’re going to be getting even less than that. Sean Hannity is inviting doctors on to “guess” at diagnoses for Hillary Clinton. Sounds like what we’re going to be reduced to doing for Trump.
