Biden Critiques Trump’s Claims of Good Health: ‘I Don’t Think He Could Keep Up’ With Me Jogging


screen-shot-2016-09-13-at-7-48-06-amDespite Dr. Harold Bornstein‘s claims that his patient Donald Trump has across the board “astonishingly excellent” health, Vice President Joe Biden isn’t so sure.

Joe Cool spoke with reporters Monday who grilled the Veep about a variety of issues, one of which was Trump’s health and some of the more dubious claims made by the infamous Bornstein letter from December that read in part, “If elected, Mr. Trump, I can state unequivocally, will be the healthiest individual ever elected to the presidency.”

It sounds like Vice President Biden is ready to put some of those claims to the test. CBS News’ Mark Knoller noted:

But challenging claims of Trump’s fitness aside, Biden addressed the controversy surrounding the health of his own party’s standard-bearer Hillary Clinton, a topic that has come under close scrutiny since she was forced to leave a 9/11 remembrance ceremony early on Sunday with secretly diagnosed pneumonia. Biden acknowledges it may not have been the best move.

Biden also said that it takes, “…getting through a think skull like Hillary’s and mine to slow down,” in order to halt an on-the-go politician who gets sidelined with something like pneumonia.

I’m proposing it now — a Trump v. Biden 5K to raise money for charity. The money can be split between the Cancer Moonshot Initiative and Trump’s top veteran groups. Whaddya say, boys?
