The Hill reports:
President Trump on Saturday began portions of his annual physical exam at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center, the White House said.
“Anticipating a very busy 2020, the President is taking advantage of a free weekend here in Washington, D.C., to begin portions of his routine annual physical exam at Walter Reed,” press secretary Stephanie Grisham said in a statement.
Trump did not have anything on his public schedule on Saturday, but he departed the White House at 2:15 p.m. and arrived at the medical center about 30 minutes later.

I don’t buy for a second that this unscheduled visit to Walter Reed is Trump trying to proactively get some of his annual physical out of the way because he happens to have some free time today. There’s a reason he’s there, and Americans have the right to know what that is.

Breaking- Trump is getting a pop-up physical at Walter Reed. It’s a meaningless PR stunt as WR is part of the Exec Branch & has covered up for him. Any physician would be alarmed by his condition & immediately refer him for a neurological exam. He needs to go the Mayo Clinic https://t.co/ncAy4EWXPo
