And Susan Hunt said that everyone is now lining up to be weighed by Ronny Jackson. Some people have just great genes.
“There’s no indication whatsoever that he has any cognitive issues”, Jackson said, adding, “I’ve found no reason whatsoever to think the president has any issues whatsoever with his thought processes”.
But more concerning for the late-night TV host is what Trump’s flourishing health actually means.
Jackson said that while Trump “doesn’t have a daily exercise regiment”, Trump “has a lot of energy, a lot of stamina”.
So Jackson gave him the Montreal Cognitive Assessment. “I don’t have those problems”. “He would not have got 30 out of 30”. A summary from Bornstein said the then-candidate’s cardiac, thyroid and other test results were normal for someone of his age. Trump had responded by referring to himself as a “stable genius”, and requested the cognitive exam.
Dr. David Maron, the director of preventive cardiology at Stanford University’s medical school, said he was seriously concerned with Trump’s LDL cholesterol levels, which were above 140.
Years after he claimed Barack Obama was lying about his USA citizenship, Donald Trump is now the subject of a conspiracy similar to the #Birther movement.
The only medications he is now taking are Propecia for male hair loss, one for Rosacea and a multivitamin, Jackson also confirmed. “And so that’s been mentioned in previous physical exams he’s had done”.
“Standing at 75 inches tall, or 6′ 2.5”, and weighing in at 239 pounds, Trump’s weight places him at a Body Mass Index (BMI) of 30.3, or, if his height is rounded up to 6′ 3″, 29.9.
At the recommendation of the White House doctor, Trump has agreed to go on a diet and exercise program.
As to whether the President should get more sleep, the doctor said sure, but he seems to do well with the amount of sleep he gets and he is not concerned.
Trump is also not alone in his lack of interest in exercise.
Dr Jackson praised the president’s lifelong abstention from drink and drugs, saying that their benefits had showed in his physical test results.
Questions surrounding Trump’s mental health have increased following the release of Michael Wolff’s book Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House, which depicts a president even more erratic than his already off-color public persona.
His score suggests he has control of the basic faculties of his mind.
