Special extra Physician's Money Digest (PMD) post this week for the gift that keeps on giving - Mr. Donald Trump.  As usual, check out the full post at PMD.  An excerpt is provided below.

Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump just went ahead and shoved his foot in his mouth... again.  This time by creating the trending hashtag #TrumpSacrifices with a list of his accomplishments which he counts as "sacrifices."  In case you missed it, check out this ABC story Donald Trump to Father of Fallen Soldier: 'I’ve Made a Lot of Sacrifices'.  Well I decided to have some fun - here are 10 top medical #TrumpSacrifices.
  1. Academic attending: I sacrificed by letting my intern manually disimpact my patient for experience. #TrumpSacrifices
  2. Resident: I sacrificed by writing the H&P and placing the admit orders on a 4:45pm admission. #TrumpSacrifices
  3. ER: I sacrificed by writing more than "abdominal pain" under the indication for a CT abdomen/pelvis. #TrumpSacrifices
  4. FM: I sacrificed by using Wikipedia because Uptodate was down. #TrumpSacrifices
  5. Hospitalist: I sacrificed by taking a soda from the nurses' fridge because the patients' supply ran out. #TrumpSacrifices
