We apologize for this one; we try to follow as many people on Twitter as we possibly can, but somehow Vice President Dick Cheney’s longtime cardiologist slipped past us.
It’s a good thing that Newsweek was paying attention; it seems Cheney’s cardiologist suspects the White House is hiding something discovered during President Trump’s recent physical exam.

Dr. Jonathan Reiner even tagged CNN’s Jake Tapper and the New York Times’ Peter Baker to clue them in.

And … that’s it. Newsweek reports:
Four days on from President Donald Trump completing a four-hour physical exam, the White House has yet to release details about the results of the tests. The absence of information beyond an initial short memo has prompted the longtime cardiologist of former Vice President Dick Cheney to suggest that the White House is “hiding” something.
“It’s been 4 days since the president underwent his annual physical exam and still no data has been released. What are they hiding?” Dr. Jonathan Reiner wrote on Twitter Tuesday.
Better yet, Newsweek goes on to include the tweet from President Obama’s Ebola Czar, who was outraged at the memo released by the White House physician, which turned out to be boilerplate language that was used verbatim on President Obama’s health report. Frankly, we’re surprised he hasn’t deleted it out of embarrassment yet.
No doctor can predict someone’s future health.
This is a disgrace to an office with a great tradition of professionalism. Just another institution turned into a joke by a President determined to make anyone willing to submit an instrument of his lies https://t.co/X91box4Gm6

So, what does Cheney’s cardiologist know that the rest of us don’t?
@Newsweek is officially a gossip mag now.

this is stupid, there was no pomp this time bc of what the media did to Ronnie. Smeared him to a point where he has avoided the public.

It’s true … Joe Scarborough called White House physician Dr. Ronny Jackson — appointed by Barack Obama — a “political hack,” while Dana Milbank asked, “Is Trump’s doctor OK,” or had he “adopted the hyperbolic style and excessive flattery of the boss that we see in other, previously respectable members of Trump’s court”?
Remember the “girthers” — those who swore Jackson had lied about Trump’s weight? People destroyed a doctor and accused him of lying for giving Trump a passing grade on his physical.
When is the CDC going to get serious and find a cure for Trump Derangement Syndrome?
SURPRISE! The latest lib outrage over Trump's medical report goes down in flames https://t.co/brMZeLJNC0
