Trump's health report raises questions for late-night hosts

Although Jackson did not account for Trump's waist measurement in his analysis, he did mention plans to help improve the president's diet and institute some kind of exercise program.

Trump took office at age 70, making him the oldest incoming United States president.

Trump's predecessors, Democrat and Republican, were fitness enthusiasts, but Trump has no daily workout routine.

As part of the physical President Donald Trump recently took, his physician gave him a mental cognition test, which the president aced.

Who even reads this trash any more? "That's probably one of the reasons why he's been successful", the doctor said.

But that's not a huge surprise given the president's affinity for McDonald's and distaste for exercise.

One image showed Mr Trump standing next to former baseball player Alex Rodriguez, who is 6ft 3in.

Mr Trump's body mass index (BMI) of 29.9 put him in the overweight category - and on the brink of obese - for his alleged height at 190cm.

That said, he has made roughly 80 trips to golf courses during his first year in office, according to ABC News' count, though he is known to make regular use of a golf cart rather than walk the courses.

The parents were jailed on $12 million bail each after pleading not guilty Thursday at their first court appearance. The 13 siblings had never been to the dentist and hadn't been to the doctor in more than four years, Hestrin said.

The anti-hair loss tablets have been linked to depression, a reduced sex drive and erectile problems.

Jackson performed the yearly physical Friday at the Walter Reed National Military Medical Center in Maryland.

The doctor said he had "absolutely no concerns", adding: "He's very sharp". "There is no indication whatsoever that he has any cognitive issues.he is very articulate when he speaks to me".

"It's called genetics. I don't know, some people have just great genes", Navy Rear Adm. Dr. Ronny Jackson said at the White House press briefing after delivering the results of Trump's physical.

The medical examination took place amid questions about his mental fitness for office, spurred by the publication of a damaging book that suggested Trump's own aides worry about his stability.

Overall, Trump is doing fine health-wise, though Dr. Jackson said the president is a bit too sedentary and has high cholesterol.

Additionally, the President had an echocardiogram of his heart, as well as a stress test, both described as normal.

Easy as that question is, it's the clock one that has the internet demanding proof.

Gupta said the presence of calcium in Trump's blood vessels has greatly increased since 2009 and that, according to the coronary calcium score released by the White House, the president already had "well surpassed the threshold for having heart disease and being at risk for a heart attack".
