Col. Morris Davis Jokes Trump Visited Hospital for Acute Case of Chapping Caused by Mark Meadows Sucking Up

A former chief prosecutor at Guantanamo Bay who hopes to steal Rep. Mark Meadows' North Carolina seat has suggested President Donald Trump's Saturday hospital trip was a result of "acute case of chapped ass" caused by the "amount of kissing it's gotten" from Meadows.

Col. Morris Davis took to social media in the wake of news that President Trump had visited the hospital on November 16, suggesting his own take on the reasons for his visit.

"Many people are saying that @realDonaldTrump was being treated at Walter Reed for an acute case of chapped ass caused by the intense and excessive amount of kissing it's gotten from @RepMarkMeadows. Time to boot Gerrymandered Meadows and make #NC11 #MountainStrong!" he wrote.

Col. Davis has repeatedly lashed out at Meadows on social media, announcing at the beginning of the year that he was moving back home to unseat the Republican, but he has yet to make any official political move.

The former prosecutor was awarded $100,000 in 2016, after being sacked by the Library of Congress's Congressional Research Service for writing several opinion pieces on terror suspects that criticized former President Barack Obama.

The White House hit back at suggestions there was anything sinister in the unexpected hospital visit on Saturday, despite him having no other events on his schedule that day and not announcing the visit to the press ahead of time.

"Visited a great family of a young man under major surgery at the amazing Walter Reed Medical Center," Trump wrote on Twitter of his visit to the hospital.

"Those are truly some of the best doctors anywhere in the world. Also began phase one of my yearly physical. Everything very good (great!). Will complete next year."

And White House press secretary Stephanie Grisham hit out at suggestions Trump was at the hospital for anything other than a routine check-up, telling NBC News that the president "remains healthy and energetic without complaints, as demonstrated by his repeated vigorous rally performances in front of thousands of Americans several times a week," and adding that such rumors were "irresponsible and dangerous for this country."
