Examination: The Mental Fitness of the White House Press Corps

White House doctor takes nearly 50 minutes of questions on Trump's health

White House physician Dr. Ronny Jackson stood at the press briefing podium for more than 50 minutes on Tuesday as he took a barrage of questions about President Donald Trump's health.

Some of the questions touched on whether Trump could have dementia, Alzheimer's, Hepatitis C, heart disease, his life expectancy, his next colonoscopy, his mental fitness for office, his ice cream intake, how he could be as fit as Barack Obama, his weight measurement, whether he was susceptible to a stroke, whether he was mentally fit for office and even whether he was addicted to any drugs.

Jackson praised Trump's stamina and called his overall health "excellent," stipulating he was overweight and needed to eat better. He also revealed he performed a cognitive test of Trump at the president's request, and the doctor said he had "no concerns."
