Anatomical anomaly: The Con claims the kidney 'has a special place in the heart'

https://www.theguardian.com/us-news/2019/jul/10/trump-kidney-heart
<snip>
Donald Trump surprised the medical community on Wednesday afternoon, when he claimed “the kidney has a very special place in the heart”.

Speaking as he announced a government plan to tackle kidney disease, Trump went on an extended riff about the efforts of specialists.

“You’ve worked so hard on the kidney. Very special. The kidney has a very special place in the heart. It’s an incredible thing,” Trump gushed.

The president’s declaration is likely to raise eyebrows among many, as the kidney is not usually considered to be located in the heart.

According to the “All about kidneys” section of the National Kidney Foundation website, the kidneys – most people are born with two – “are in your lower back”. The human heart meanwhile, as per an ABC News explainer: “Is in middle of your chest, in between your right and left lung. It is, however, tilted slightly to the left.”

1. When I heard this I almost choked.

What a fucking moron extraordinaire.

Chris Hayes is showing it again now.

Since when does he have a heart? Reminds me of the Grinch whose heart needed a magnifying glass to see.

9. OK, whatever you call the mechanism that keeps her going.

"Heart" would be accurate only in the literal biological sense.

He is an embarrassment. How stupid do you have to be to make a statement like this?

15. I imagine Trump meant that kidneys have a special place in his heart...

like he has a extraordinary concern for kidney disease when we know he is lying through his teeth.
