Daily Show host Trevor Noah was skeptical on Tuesday of the rosy health assessment Donald Trump got from physician Harold N. Bornstein, who said his lab results were “astonishingly excellent.”
“That’s just a little bit weird,” Noah said. Lab results are either bad, or normal. Unless the doctor was like ‘I’m astonished. I mean, look at him — he looks like cancer in a wig.’ But I digress.”
Bornstein gushed on Monday that the real estate mogul and Republican presidential front-runner would be “the healthiest individual” ever to win the office if elected.
Noah and his correspondents imagined that the mutual admiration between Trump and the gastroenterologist started with a shared appreciation for their hair, since Bornstein’s picture showed him sporting curiously long hair.
“This guy looks like the kind of doctor who would be caught supplying Mexican steroids to minor-league baseball players,” Noah said. “I’m not saying that’s true, I’m just saying that’s how he looks.”
