For all of you worrying about cutting calories, stop. Your problem isn’t that you’re too fat, it’s that you’re too short. Donald Trump has overcome this obstacle and shown that at the age of 71, while other people his age are losing height, he’s still growing. RawStory:
Dr. Jackson reported that Trump is six feet and three inches (75″) tall and weighs 239 lbs.
In 2012, the State of New York issued Trump a driver’s license listing his height as six feet and two inches(74″).
The document was issued in May of 2012 when Trump was sixty-five years old.
That height/weight ratio listed by the White House makes Trump “overweight” according to the Department of Health and Human Services’ Body Mass Index (BMI).
Could it be possible that the good doctor was fudging, a pound here, an inch there? CNN medical correspondent Sanjat Gupka took issue with Dr. Ronny Jackson’s definition of “excellent.”
“To be clear though, he is taking a cholesterol lowering medication, he has evidence of heart disease and he is borderline obese,” Gupta asked him. “Can you characterize that as excellent health?”
But he does have “excellent genes” see? Here’s a pair.

Mentally, Trump’s just fine. His doctor didn’t bother to address those seventy other health care professionals who have said to the contrary.
Either Dr. Jackson was bought off/threatened or he is not qualified to assess Trump’s mental health with no baseline. The “good genes” statement kills his credibility.

It would seem, according to the WH doctor, Trump isn’t suffering from dementia, just ignorance, unchecked narcissism, and deeply-ingrained sense of bigotry.

Doctor insisting that Trump doesn’t need psychological testing despite his erratic behavior is followed by a reporter asking if the Fake News Awards are still scheduled, and his press secretary doesn’t now.
I mean …

And what about those crippling bone spurs, a reporter asked?
.@colvinj with the deep pull on whether WH dr found evidence of bone spurs in Trump’s feet. Doctor says he didn’t check for them.

Good to know that this debilitating chronic bone spur condition resolved itself. Also good to know that like the pop psychology books always tell us, “It’s never too late to change and grow.” A whole inch in Trump’s case.
