This morning, White House physician Dr. Ronny Jackson said that Trump is in “excellent health” and has no cognitive issues.

“The president’s overall health is excellent,” Jackson said.

There were, of course, questionable aspects of the exam, such as the fact that Trump’s height was listed as 6’3. Prior to today, Trump’s height had been listed as 6’2.

Also suspect is the fact that, at “6’3” and “239 pounds,” Trump body mass index (BMI) is 29.9, only 0.1 units shy of obese as categorized by the Center for Disease Control. How convenient.

Furthermore, Trump completed the Montreal Cognitive Assessment, an exam designed to detect cognitive impairment in “older patients.” Per The Washington Post, “The test includes asking a patient to name several animals, draw a clock with the hands at a certain time, copy a cube and recall a short list of words, among others.”

Twitter, of course, had a field day.
