CNN chief medical correspondent Sanjay Gupta on Tuesday questioned a White House physician for giving President Donald Trump a clean bill of health.

Navy doctor Ronny Jackson said during a White House press briefing that Trump’s health “is 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?”

Jackson performed Trump’s first physical as president last Friday at the Walter Reed military hospital and insisted that the president is in good health despite some issues.

“I would say the dose of his cholesterol medicine is very low… If we [change] the diet and exercise, I just don’t think that he has much room to do anything else,” he remarked.

Trump’s unhinged fans get even more detached from reality as his chances fade

Published

A pandemic is spiraling out of control and Donald Trump's reaction is to roll his eyes and say, "It is what it is." Unsurprisingly, polling data shows that his Democratic opponent, former Vice President Joe Biden, is pulling ahead, not just in national polls, but in a number of battleground states like Pennsylvania, Michigan and Florida, none of which Trump can afford to lose. After all, the incumbent has nothing real to run on.
