Trump’s Doctor Shuts Down Reporters Begging for Bad News

Dr. Ronny Jackson dogged about the details of his report…

(Rare) On Tuesday, White House physician Dr. Ronny Jackson appeared before reports in the press room and informed them that the President Trump is in excellent shape, joking that with a healthier diet, Trump “might live to be 200.”

Jackson began his remarks by reading off the results from a series of tests that were performed on the president.

He said “all clinical data indicates that the president is currently very healthy and that he will remain so for the duration of his presidency.”

Following his statements, Jackson opened the room to reporters who dogged him about the details of his report.

Almost immediately, NBC’s Hallie Jackson asked about the president’s “mental fitness” and the White House physician answered “I’ve spent almost every day in the president’s presence … I had no concerns about his cognitive ability … the reason that we did the cognitive assessment is because the president asked me to do it.”

He added, “I didn’t think it was indicated, I didn’t think we needed to it.”

Soon after, CNN’s Jim Acosta, who has brushed with the White House on several occasions, asked Jackson if he was giving all the results but the physician said “absolutely nothing” was being withheld from Trump’s results.

Earlier on Tuesday, the president kicked Acosta out of a meeting with the prime minister of Kazakhstan.

Another reporter asked Jackson if he has “any concerns about [the president’s] use of Twitter” but the physician responded “Twitter doesn’t involve me as a doctor. I don’t have any concern on that.”


He added that Trump “doesn’t sleep much,” estimating that the president sleeps four to five hours a night.

Jackson said that the intends to put Trump on a diet and exercise regimen and that he hopes for the president to lose between 10 and 15 pounds.

The White House physician is an admiral in the U.S. Navy and has been in his post since July of 2013, when he was appointed by Obama.

    President TRUMP’s doctor, Dr. Ronny Jackson, was the same physician who examined former president Obama. I find it troubling the Leftist MSM accepted Dr. Jackson’s medical report when it came to Obama’s medical examination, but relentlessly grilled Dr. Jackson over Trumps medical examination. Asking leading questions such as “mental fitness”, suggesting our president is unfit to hold the highest office in the land. I suggest Hallie Jackson [no relation to Dr. Jackson] is unfit to fill the role as White House correspondent. Not too mention Jim Acosta is a mentally deranged Leftist kook who’s been impersonating a reporter for years. It’s time for President Trump to exclude low IQ fake reporters such as Acosta and other Left Wing propagandists. MAGA

      The meltdowns from the unhinged left are becoming comical at this point. They are so predictable because they are always SO wrong about everything.

    • Farte’

      Your so right . They never questioned when Obama stated he was a Muslim and had to reminded by by George Stephenapoulos he meant a Christian. Who forgets their religion?
      Mandatory cognitive and intelligence testing for the whole bunch.

    • Jacqueline White

      That’s what silly fake news reporters do, make fools out of themselves, again.

    • Stephine

      “It’s time President Trump begin excluding low IQ fake reporters” …. That wouldn’t leave too many to do reporting? Quality over quantity, but quality reporters are harder to find than buying a winning lotto ticket.

  • Mark Thomas

    It was very amusing, how I wish the press would put the same questions to Pelosi.
    Wouldn’t be interesting for Pelosi’s doctor to comment on her cognitive level and give an opinion on how many more face lifts she could survive.

  • Steve G.

    These reporters were like sharks in a feeding frenzy. I never saw anything more ridiculous. Then Flake comes out and defends the media today. Acosta should be receiving his Trump award today.

    • Pat Warnock

      Acosta is way out in front – any bookies market?

      • theking

        it is time for a highly qualified investigator (reporter) to create a program where by those that attack the president are disclosed and then investigated to tell the citizens just what kind of a prejudiced individual is attacking OUR PRESIDENT. For those that keep insisting President Trump is NOT their president, I would encourage you to go where yhour President is located.

    • kabulgeorge

      Flake, just like his name, perfect! he will be gone soon!

  • Steve G.

    Trump had a dry throat and the media acts like he was having a stroke. Hillary passes out and the media say’s she just needed a nap.

    • theking

      the mouth of Maxine Waters needs to be thoroughly investigated medically to determine why she speaks such violent words against our duly elected president. Those who are going to boycott the SOTU addre4ss by President Trump are doing the peoplle they are SUPPOSED TO REPRESENT a disfavor by not being present. By being absent, these misfits le4ts the SOTU become of higher quality with those present who are decent, non prejudicial representatives of the people. How come Maxine Waters is not being impeached for the crimes she did and the ethics committee only slapped her hands. Her crime (then) deserved kicking her out of the House. Still not too late to do this.

      • Jacqueline White

        They don’t belong there as they are truly out of their element, way too stupid to know what’s going on.

  • James Beckham

    I believe President Trump has good genes and is and will remain healthy of mind and body for many years to come.

    • MichaelB

      That’s what Dr. Jackson said.

  • Pat Warnock

    The President doesn’t drink or smoke, has his own teeth, golfs, 6ft3in, chubby, his diet has become standard over many years so his body is immune to it, doctor says okay – so why the carping, Acosta? Doctor was Obama’s doctor so is he being accused of being a fan boy of Obama as well as Trump?

    • independent thinker

      Saw a post that said Trump weighs 6 pounds more than QB Jay Cutler who is 6’3″ just like Trump.

  • MichaelB

    I listened to the entire report live on the radio. Dr. Jackson was not to be trifled with.

  • Nancy Garrett-scheier

    Ronny was really put on the spot and handled the idiots very well. The nerve and stupidity of the reporters’ behavior – unbelievable!

  • RealAmerican407

    They were in utter disbelief that he didn’t say what they wanted to hear.

    • theking

      those that keep attacking the president and causing him to be taken away from the projects he is working ON to make AMERICA a better nation are guilty of interfering with the advancement of issues beneficial to the entire USA population. They are intent on interfering with the professional and trustworthy administration of President Trump. Keep in mind, this man is working for nothing but the honor of serving our Nation as our president. He puts in long hours, is harassed and insulted at every turn by the leftist communists/socialists ands they do not appreciate the efforts undertaken by President Trump. They should cease and resist from attacking our President for in fact when they attack our president they are also attacking every Trump Supporter.

  • Farte’

    The fake news media is a great embarrassment to the U.S. The world is their stage and they ask questions a third grader would ask. One fake news reporter asked Dr. Jackson “what is the presidents life expectancy”???

    • Mr Barrett

      The left-lib-loon-buffoons in general are an embarrassment …the 8-year O-pressive administration was an embarrassment (will be cleaning up from that one for long time).

  • Jacqueline White

    Trump was wrong to give the Socialist reporters that much leeway. He should have the doctor give the report, walk away from the mike without taking any questions.

  • John

    Any objective observer who played a montage of Watters, Pelosi, Shumer, Durban, HRC , the White House press corps, or any 5 random libs vs POTUS TRUMP and it wouldn’t take long to figure out the lefties are the ones in need of SERIOUS long term mental health help.

    I thought the press corps was going to need ambulances as they were shocked in disbelief.



    • Mr Barrett

      Mad-Maxi-Pad Waters is the one who keeps saying “I won’t waste mah tyme going to the State of the Union Message”…. well – she wastes our time every time she opens that big mouth….
      another left-lib-loon…with a too tight bad bride of Chucky wig.

  • Ron

    It might be time to clean up the WH press. In other words, let it be known that any stupidity will lose you your WH press card.

    • teachersaide

      THAT qualification would Roust most of the current press corp, if not all.

  • Bonnie Marshall

    They acted so stupid while the Dr. was giving his report. They kept asking the same things over and over, like they thought he was lying, or like they couldn’t understand what he was saying. How many ways does it take to understand our president is in good health? Our president is more intelligent than all of them, and they can’t stand it.

    • teachersaide

      They ALWAYS ask the same things over & over. Remember “Desert Shield/Storm”, when they asked 20 different ways, “When is the surprise invasion going to happen?”? God Bess General Schwartzkoff!

  • Roy Veteto

    if reporters are concerned with finding bad news then why do these reporters ignore doctors who perform abortions . these doctors do things that stalin would smile over and the places where abortions are done are not sanitary

  • Rolpho Signetti

    These reporters are use to begging!
    I got from an undisclosed source that they the male reporter beg their boyfriends every night for a little “Night Moves” action.

  • Deplorable Lanie

    So this doctor was just fine to evaluate Obama but when it comes to President Trump they think he is hiding something? Just because they didn’t get the report they wanted, what scum for wanting the President to be in poor health. Can you imagine if anyone would have suggested the same thing about Obama? They would have screamed racism. But it is just fine to want President Trump to be sick? Scumbags! I absolutely despise the DemocRATs!

  • ADRoberts

    Surprise. The press did not attack the doctor. Except Accosta.

  • Louie Rey

    Rumor has it that the Democrats, with the help of their handmaidens in the media, want a special counsel to look into this doctor’s background to see if he has a Russia connection. I love the fact that everyone of the Left is apoplectic over any and all good news regarding President Trump.
