Surgeon General Jerome Adams was buried under a withering blanket of derision on Sunday morning after telling CNN’s Jake Tapper, “The president, he sleeps less than I do and he’s healthier than I am.”
Adams’ comment brought to mind Trump’s doctors previously praising his health with equally ridiculous claims.
Needless to say, the Internet remembered and Twitter regulars had a field day laughing at the doctor.

This bullshit again? Did he also say that trump will live to be 200 despite his diet of fast food and lack of exercise? Was there any pushback? Haven't we had enough of this???

This is sounding more and more like N Korea.

Did I wake up in North Korea this morning??
You know, that place where government officials shower Dear Leader with slathering adulation.

Utter bulls hit lunacy and extremely unprofessional as any physician with a brain knows sleep is most essential to health, doesn’t lie and would spot Trumps psychopathology in a heart beat Calling that mess healthy is totally bizarre

Sad to hear that @Surgeon_General is not well.

Was there ANY pushback on such a ridiculous statement?
— Toad Heartbreak (@toadheartbreak) March 8, 2020
Then the US Surgeon general is a liar OR he's not well. Maybe both.

Jerome must be on life support.
