MSNBC’s Joe Scarborough tried to unravel President Donald Trump’s mysterious hospital visit over the weekend, which the White House insists was the beginning of his annual physical.
The “Morning Joe” host laughed out loud at a clip of White House press secretary Stephanie Grisham and Fox News host Jeanine Pirro praising the president’s “superman” energy after the surprise hospital visit.
“Who was it, was it (Treasury Secretary Steve) Mnuchin who praised his perfect genes?” Scarborough said. “Was it Steve Mnuchin who said had he superhuman genes? And they said he would live to be 200 if he ate better?”
Scarborough said the president’s public schedule doesn’t suggest superhuman energy.
“He’s got, like, one event,” he said. “I think he does one or two things a day, tops.”
Scarborough said the public deserved accurate information about president’s health.
“He’s magically picked up, he’s two inches taller now than he was a couple of years ago,” Scarborough said. “The bone spurs are growing and pushing him up, and also, by the way — I’m sorry. I know a guy that weighs about 240, 241, this guy, this guy is — he’s pushing 300 (pounds). There is no doubt about it, there’s no doubt. There’s no doubt about it. Maybe he’s 270, maybe he’s 280.”
The summaries of Trump’s past physical exams have been “laughable,” Scarborough said, and the White House has already burned up all its credibility.
“I’m just saying we have a right to know our president’s health, and he’s done nothing but lie to us about it for several years,” Scarborough said.

July 4 re-opening still on after employee at private sports club owned by billionaire governor tests positive for coronavirus
After at least three complaints alleging lax reopening practices at West Virginia Gov. Jim Justice’s luxury resort hotel, a kitchen employee has tested positive for the coronavirus at a residential and sports club affiliated with The Greenbrier.
Local Health Department officials directed a 14-day quarantine for potentially exposed employees at The Lodge, a restaurant at the Greenbrier Sporting Club, and the venue will remain closed until July 10. Festivities planned at the club for July 4 will go on, but with food from other facilities.
"While the events of the past few days certainly have thrown us a curve ball, we have reached out to our friends and colleagues in the area to pull together a festival that will have something for everyone," the director of operations at the sporting club, Allen Wills, told its 400 members in a Tuesday night email, obtained by ProPublica.
