On Feb. 8, President Donald Trump underwent a four hour-long physical exam at the Walter Reed National Military Medical Center, the details of which remain undisclosed, as Newsweek reports. In response, the cardiologist to former Vice President Dick Cheney, Dr. Jonathan Reiner—a man clearly familiar with the dark, twisted hearts of evil old men—tweeted Tuesday about this alarming lack of public information:
Since the exam, the White House has only provided a brief memo from Sean Conley, the president’s physician.
“While the reports and recommendations are being finalized, I am happy to announce the President of the United States is in very good health and I anticipate he will remain so for the duration of his Presidency, and beyond,” the memo read in part. All this about a 72-year-old who shirks exercise, survives on fast food and holds one of the most stressful jobs in the country (though undoubtedly “Executive Time” makes his days a bit easier).
Reiner, who also serves as the director of the cardiac catheterization laboratory at the George Washington University Hospital, was not the only person perturbed by this strange overstatement of health. Ronald Klain, the former chief of staff to Vice President Joe Biden, criticized Conley’s memo on Twitter:
Ahead of the physical, Hogan Gidley, the principal deputy White House press secretary, admitted to CNN, “The President received a diet and exercise plan last year after his annual physical, but the President admits he has not followed it religiously.”
White House physician Dr. Ronny Jackson did, apparently, recommend increased exercise and an improved diet for the president, he stated at a press briefing following the exam. However, he also stated simply at the briefing, “Some people just have great genes.”
Boy, Trump really is one lucky guy. Intelligence and great genes? Too bad he’s not single, ladies!
