President Trump 'fit for duty,' has no cognitive issues: White House doctor

Donald Trump

Jackson held an extraordinary news conference - on Trumps insistence - yesterday at the White House that lasted for about an hour.

He was examined by military doctors at the Walter Reed Medical Center in Bethesda, Maryland, in tests that were said to have gone "exceptionally well".

Called the Montreal Cognitive Assessment, it is created to detect early signs of memory loss and other neurologic functions - and Trump had a ideal score.

The older you get, the higher your risk for Alzheimer's disease and other forms of dementia.

"There is no indication whatsoever that he has any cognitive issues".

"I feel very confident that he has a very strong and a very probably possibility of making it completely through his presidency with no medical issues", said Dr Jackson.

"I'd like to wish everybody a happy Women's March - a million women out there to celebrate the President's first kick-ass year in office", Bryant as Sanders opens, echoing President Trump's real life tweet praising today's demonstrations and congratulating himself for low unemployment among women.

According to a calculator provided by the National Institutes of Health's National Heart, Lung and Blood Institute, Trump's BMI is 29.9.

The president's weight is three pounds more than it was in September 2016, according to a letter Trump released from his personal physician at the time. "I told the president if he had a healthier diet over the last 20 years he might live to be 200".

Jackson replied that Trump's heart is "in the excellent category". "We talked about diet and exercise a lot", Jackson said. Trump has no heart disease and no family history of it.

Google's keyboard app Gboard now lets you make GIFs of your own
The GIF creation feature builds on Motion Stills with users able to create animations that both feature loops and fast-forwards. Contrariwise, Fast-Forward allows users to record content up to one minute, which is then sped up in the resulting GIF.

Just to be safe, Jackson and an ear, nose and throat specialist ran some extra tests and found nothing amiss.

"Can you explain to me how a guy that eats McDonald's and Kentucky Fried Chicken and all those Diet Cokes, and who never exercises, is in as good of shape as you say he's in?"

Tuesday's depiction of Trump as much healthier than the average 71-year-old means he is managing to escape the consequences of a lack of sleep, the dangers of significantly elevated "bad cholesterol" and the well-established health effects of obesity, poor nutrition and lack of exercise. Some people have just great genes.

"If we get diet and exercise right, then weight loss will come", Jackson said.

Jackson said the president sleeps only four to five hours a night but rarely sees the president overly stressed.

"People aren't buying the doctor's report that Trump only weighs 239 lbs.at 6'3", and they're talking about it on Twitter.

The White House press briefing has played host to plenty of tortured moments during Donald Trump's presidency.
