The [Dr. Oz] show has trumpeted, Trump will finally release some actual, specific medical records. (At least, the campaign said he would, then backed off and said the appearance would be “a conversation generally about well-being,” and then reversed again after the show’s taping.) But those records probably won’t clear anything up. “You can’t assess a human being’s medical condition by chatting up on a stage with them,” says Jonathan Moreno, a bioethicist at UPenn.
