Yesterday, Ronny Jackson, MD, the White House's official physician to the president, released the results of Donald Trump's physical exam - and the outcome was good! The examination at the Walter Reed National Military Medical Centre lasted several hours and was likely to measure things like Trump's blood pressure, cholesterol, blood sugar, heart rate and weight.
Asked at the White House briefing if any additional cognitive tests should be performed on the president, Jackson said he didn't think so. "They need to come to the table with a real deal based on the parameters that were discussed in the meeting that most of you saw, and let's try to get something done for the American people", Sanders said.
According to Dr. Jackson, Trump performed "exceedingly well" on the cognitive assessment test, as the flawless score is meant to demonstrate.
Trump weighs 239 pounds and is 6 feet 3 inches tall. We talked about diet and exercise a lot.
Trump said he was not following any special diet or exercise regimen for the campaign.
So it appears the test we are now using as a barometer for if the president has the mental acuity to authorize nuclear strikes is whether he can successfully comprehend the plot of Goodnight Gorilla without being hopelessly befuddled. "And I think he wasn't the least bit concerned that he had anything to hide", Jackson said. I know I would. Which makes me more anxious, because that means he's doing all of this shit on goal? "I told the president if he had eaten healthier over the last 25 years, he might live to be 200". "Show us your weight certificate". Long-running questions about Trump's fitness for office were given new fuel by Michael Wolff's White House expose in which staff expressed concern about Trump repeating himself.
"Rear Adm. Ronny Jackson was so effusive in extolling the totally incredible, surpassingly marvelous, superbly stupendous and extremely awesome health of the president that the doctor sounded nearly Trumpian", Milbank wrote.
In fact, every morning after that, he would get tickled by his situation and start laughing. Petersen said he could not comment specifically on the president's cognitive health.
