Axios morning email thingie tells us we coulda had Prznint Termite last November:

The newsy book by N.Y. Times scoop machine Michael Schmidt — “Donald Trump v. The United States,” out today — adds to the mystery surrounding President Trump’s sudden visitto Walter Reed amid the impeachment fight last November, explained at the time as a “routine, planned interim checkup”:

In reporting for this book, I learned that in the hours leading up to Trump’s trip to the hospital, word went out in the West Wing for the vice president to be on standby to take over the powers of the presidency temporarily if Trump had to undergo a procedure that would have required him to be anesthetized. Pence never assumed the powers of the presidency, and the reason for Trump’s trip to the doctor remains a mystery.

Between the lines: The White House account never added up. This reporting suggests there was more to it.

There was another NYTimes’ reporter’s tweet going around last night (since deleted) that Prznint Stupid had a stroke (or “cerebral event”), which on the face of it seems far-fetched as it implies that Lord Damp Nut actually has a brain.

But there is a larger problem with this story: Why did the NYTimes not cover this at the time? Because they wanted to save a juicy scoop for a book where they make more Ameros? They’ve done that before, it’s journalism malpractice.

    This certainly seems to be the new practice for journalists. They do a lot of investigative work, release tidbits in news stories and save the big stuff for their books. Not just journalists, either, but former government figures. Too cowardly to come out and show evidence of wrongdoing or illegal acts, the government people just want to hustle a buck and stay safe. The journalists are just padding their resumé while collecting a check for reporting and banking on glory and book sales.

    Why does everything have to be so fucking rotten? It all does come down to the love of money.

    It’s a double-edged sword of corruption. On one side you have greed and on the other collusion. The blood on the sword is collateral damage.

    I remember thinking at the time how often I had been rushed to the hospital in the middle of the night for a routine check-up.

    What the White House needs is a chef who makes the most delicious hamberders using well-marbled beef, huge pats of butter, copious amounts of sour cream, high fructose corn syrup and egg yolks.
