“The President is in excellent health.”
So said Rear Admiral Dr. Ronny Jackson after President Donald Trump had his annual physical at Walter Reed Military Medical Center in Bethesda, Maryland on Friday before leaving for the weekend at his Mar-a-Lago estate in Florida.
The examination included basic blood tests, vitamin levels, heart rate, pulse, and blood pressure as well as examinations of the ears, nose, throat, and neck.
Dr. Jackson has been the White House physician for three presidents — George W. Bush, Barack Obama, and now 71-year-old Donald Trump, the oldest person ever to take office as president.
Trump’s results proves that a junk food diet ain’t all that bad for you.
Trump’s diet comes down to four major food groups, according to people who watch him eat: McDonald’s, Kentucky Fried Chicken, pizza, and Diet Coke.
Air Force One’s cupboards are always stocked with potato chips, pretzels, Vienna Fingers, and multiple packages of Oreo cookies because germaphobe Trump won’t eat from a previously opened package.
A typical lunch for Trump would be two Big Macs, two Fillet-O-Fish, and a chocolate malted.
That adds up to 2,672 calories — well over the recommended maximum of 2,200 calories for a man of Trump’s age — 117 grams of fat, 326 milligrams of cholesterol, and 3,556 milligrams of sodium — way over the American Heart Association’s suggested max of 2,400 milligrams of sodium per day.
But Trump defies the odds, as he has done all his life.
