Donald Trump Passes A Cognitive Assessment, But Needs To Exercise

20 January 2018

Trump's White House physician - Navy doctor Ronny Jackson - declared Trump to be in "excellent health" following last Friday's exam at the Walter Reed military hospital in Maryland. Jackson accused doctors who have tried to diagnose Trump from afar of performing "tabloid psychiatry".

"He continues to enjoy the significant long-term cardiac and overall health benefits that come from a lifetime of abstinence from tobacco and alcohol", Jackson pointed out.

And just how excellent is His Excellency's excellent health, doctor? "I don't know. Some people just have great genes".

The president doesn't have heart disease, Dr. Jackson reported. "Can you characterise that as excellent health?" Trump answered all 30 questions correctly, Jackson said.

And not just his heart!

"The objective of this exam was to provide the public with an update of the President's current health status and to ensure the President continues to enjoy all the benefits of good health", Jackson said.

What You Can and Can't Do During a Government Shutdown
It's not a good weekend to plan that road trip for a wintertime twirl on the ice under Half Dome in Yosemite National Park . Tonight there is simple uncertainty as to what this shutdown would look like; and which agencies would truly be closed.

He apparently has a lot of energy and stamina. Very, very sharp, very intact. "It does not absolutely assess personality issues". "The president did exceedingly well". At one point in his segment, Scarborough said, "All I can tell you is this: If that's what 239 pounds looks like, I would weigh 170 pounds".

Last week's publication of "Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House" reignited the debate about the 71 year old's health.

Trump's score places him squarely in the mid-risk range for a man of his age, Dr Gupta said. It was dry throat - exactly the diagnosis offered by the White House spokeswoman! "I don't think this can be a definitive sign that he will be in this same state of health for the remainder of his term".

One cheeky user even put him next to a ripped Colin Kaepernick, the former San Francisco 49ers player who Mr Trump criticised for kneeling during the national anthem.

Jackson has been a well-regarded doctor.

Chelsea Told To Pay £20 Million For Andy Carroll
Sky Sports News reported earlier this week that Chelsea had approached the Hammers for Carroll, who is valued at £20m. Now at West Ham , Carroll has surprisingly been linked with another big move.

Although Trump usually arrives in the West Wing around noon for various meetings, briefings and phone calls, this doesn't put a stop to his TV consumption habits. "He's more enthusiastic about the diet part than the exercise part", he said, joking that he may bring First Lady Melania Trump on board to make sure her husband sticks to a diet and workout plan.

In his White House press conference on Tuesday, Dr. Jackson responded to questions and told reporters he found "no issues whatsoever" with Trump's mental ability and pronounced him "fit for duty". He said the president had been given a Montreal Cognitive Assessment test and scored 30/30.

Most of the results were pretty straightforward. "30 out of 30".

So, what do Trump's MoCa test results tell us?

So President Donald Trump aced the cognitive portion of the physical, but how was it measured anyway? "Those close to him are sensing this level of appeasement is necessary", Lee speculated.

"I mean I walk, I this, I that", Trump said.
