05:05

Jon Meacham joins Andrea Mitchell to discuss previous examples of presidents falling ill or becoming incapacitated while in office, including George W. Bush, Ronald Reagan, Dwight Eisenhower, and John F. Kennedy, as well as the approach the White House has often taken to downplay or even cover up those ailments, with Meacham saying "that history tells you to treat medical reports from the white house as, at best, incomplete."
