A pale-looking Donald Trump addressed the nation from his suite of offices at Walter Reed Medical Center last night shortly before half past ten. Atypically, the commander in chief was tieless, though he was wearing a suit. In the 4-minute appearance, which you can view below, the president allows as how “we still have steps to go” on the road to recovery but “I think I’ll be back soon.” The message should provide some comfort to the crowds of supporters who have amassed all over the country to wish the president well and send their prayers.

Needless to say, the skeptics are out in force this morning. Included in this motley crew are the liberal paper from Down Under, The Age, which in a report on the “contradictory, confusing updates on Trump’s health” issued by the White House, observes “it is unclear when the video was filmed.” This implied “gotcha” sets the stage for the reaction of other skeptics like filmmaker Michael Moore, who insist Trump is faking it, claiming to be sick to win sympathy votes. Moore outlines his conspiracy theory in a lengthy post on Facebook.
