The American public waited with bated breath as President Donald Trump underwent his first official medical exam as commander-in-chief. What is it about this man that makes him the way he is? It's got to be something. A deep-rooted medical issue would explain away his incredible greed and penchant for grabbing women without their consent. Maybe he has tremors and that's why he can't drink water like a normal person. Perhaps he really did have a stroke when he slurred his words in that speech. Finally, we were going to have some answers...
On Tuesday, Navy Rear Adm. Ronny L. Jackson announced that Donald Trump is in excellent health and passed his tests with flying colors.
This included a cognitive test that he voluntarily took to assess whether or not he is cognitively impaired at all. Trump earned a perfect score. He knows what a lion looks like. Great.
Trump was listed at 6’3″ and 239 pounds in Dr. Jackson’s report.
All his numbers seemed normal. But it didn’t take long for people to start poking around. It became clear to many that if Trump was listed as one pound heavier or one inch shorter, he would be classified as obese. The numbers, it seemed to some, conveniently skimmed that bracket.
Then, people started comparing pictures of the president with pictures of athletes whose specs are very similar.
The results are pretty astounding. It’s hard to understand why the Dr. Jackson, who’s been the lead White House doctor since 2013, would lie to the American people. But then again, think about how many people have been paid off to keep quiet about the truth of Trump. There are too many to count.
The more pictures you see, the more it doesn't make sense.
Sure, you can’t believe every single stat about an athlete that’s on the Internet. As The Washington Post pointed out, Kevin Durant is “famously” taller than 6’9″, which is his listed height.
And it's also true that athletes and Donald Trump hold their weight differently.
Muscle weighs more than fat, which would help explain the discrepancies in…distribution of weight. Still, Dr. Jackson thought it’d be a good idea for Trump to go on a bit of a diet and start to exercise more.
Don't we all need to do that?
Apparently, Trump is more on board with the diet than the exercise. On Wednesday, he gave an interview with Reuters in which he claimed, “I get exercise. I mean I walk, I this, I that. I run over to a building next door. I get more exercise than people think.”
