White House doctor deems Trump mentally 'very sharp,' in 'excellent' health

The results of President Donald Trump's first presidential physical are in.

Despite Trump's fast food-filled diet and lack of exercise, Jackson found him to be in "excellent" health.

Bryant's press secretary then brought on White House doctor Ronny Jackson, who was played by Beck Bennett, to give the results of Trump's latest physical exam.

The White House physician replied that Trump does not wear dentures and there is no physical ailment that likely caused the slurring.

In the book, sources close to the president and the administration had said that Trump was prone to repetition and that aides regularly questioned his mental stability.

CNN's chief medical correspondent, Dr. Sanjay Gupta, said Wednesday that he believes tests reveal that President TrumpDonald John TrumpDems flip Wisconsin state Senate seat Sessions: "We should be like Canada" in how we take in immigrants GOP rep: "Sheet metal and garbage" everywhere in Haiti MORE has heart disease.

As for his mental acuity, Trump was quick to note his doctor's pronouncement that he aced a cognitive exam, which he referenced with a dig at predecessors Obama, Bush and Bill Clinton for not doing more to curb threats from North Korea.

But the U.S. president performed "exceedingly well" on cognitive screening, which is not standard but was requested by Trump.

Despite the number, Jackson said that Trump's exercise stress echocardiogram was "above average based on age and sex". He's very articulate when he speaks to me. The public questioning of Trump's health has morphed into the "girther movement".

Trump scored a ideal 30/30 on the test, according to Jackson, with 'no indication that [Trump] has cognitive issues'.

President Donald Trump's doctor said Tuesday he's confident that Mr. Trump has a "very strong and a very probable possibility" of completing his presidency "with no medical issues".

Who is Dr Ronny Jackson? If he was just an inch shorter or a pound heavier he would be labeled "obese" instead of merely overweight.

Trump is taking the prescription medicine Crestor to lower his cholesterol, Jackson noted.

"He's more enthusiastic about the diet part than the exercise part", he joked. Asked several times what the workouts might consist of, he demurred, but said that Trump "would benefit from a diet that is lower in fat and carbohydrates" and an exercise regimen.

"I get exercise. I mean I walk, I this, I that", said Trump, now 71.
