Is that so?

President Donald Trump was unexpectedly taken to Walter Reed Medical Center on Saturday for what White House Press Secretary Stephanie Grisham claims was a routine visit to conduct the first portion of his physical.

But people are skeptical after learning that his visit was unannounced to most of the Walter Reed staff, all of whom are notified ahead of a scheduled Presidential visit.

What's more, the White House has a medical facility on-site capable of performing a presidential medical exam. It's also unclear why the President is taking his physical in multiple portions.

Nevertheless, Grisham assured that the visit was standard, and that her comments were truthful:

“We're not going to get into security and movement protocols when it comes to the President, but as my statements said he's in good health and it was a routine checkup as part of his annual physical. I've given plenty of on the record statements that were truthful and accurate — actively trying to find and report conspiracy theories really needs to stop."

In a later tweet, she claimed the info was "extensive and honest."

But Grisham—who has never conducted a White House press briefing despite being press secretary for months—is considered about as honest as her predecessors, Sarah Huckabee Sanders and Sean Spicer.

People took the opportunity to remind others that Grisham has never held a White House press briefing—a once-daily routine in past presidencies.

According to Jonathan Lemire, White House reporter for the Associated Press, Trump met with the Federal Reserve Chairman in the residence today instead of the West Wing. There is nothing on Trump's schedule today and he's remained out of public view. Mo further details about his unexpected trip to Walter Reed have been given.
