On Friday, Donald Trump had his second routine doctor’s check-up of his presidency.
White House doctor Sean Conley conducted the exam at Walter Reed Medical Center, reportedly over the course of four hours along with 11 different medical specialists.
Conley announced in a memo that he found Trump “in very good health” and bizarrely added a very Trumpian prediction that the President would:
“remain so for the duration of his presidency, and beyond.”

People could not.
Is this doctor also psychic? And beyond? Who predicts good health like that? 🙈🙈🙈

No credible physician anticipates future health

It’s a course at Trump U. Med School.

People are pretty sure they know who really wrote such an optimistic prediction.
So,there was no real exam,just a note dictated by Trump

Trump must have dictated the WH Physician’s physical of the President letter because no one else would say such a nonsensical declaration “Trump in very good health… will remain so for the duration of his Presidency, and beyond”.

And. Beyond. Almost seems as if this statement was dictated.

And BEYOND, Trump wrote this and had that doctor sign it. So much for integrity in the White House.

I know, right? I am surprised he didn’t make the Doctor add “ and he was the most healthy President ever” That would be consistent.

President Obama’s former Ebola Czar weighed in, outraged that the White House physician would be used as yet another tool of this administration’s misdirection:
No doctor can predict someone’s future health.
This is a disgrace to an office with a great tradition of professionalism. Just another institution turned into a joke by a President determined to make anyone willing to submit an instrument of his lies https://t.co/X91box4Gm6

Doctors are crying foul as well:
I cannot imagine that a real Dr made this long-term prediction re: a 72 y/o obese male with coronary atherosclerosis & hypercholesterolemia, who doesn’t exercise, has a piss-poor diet consisting of fast food & soda, with the stress of a criminal investigation & a high-stress job.

This man is an embarrassment to my profession. As is his previous physician who wrote such an absurd statement testifying to his health in language no physician uses ever. Both sound like they were written by dear leader himself.
— Clint Lowry (@doctorClintL) February 10, 2019
But some on Twitter just want to know if Conley is available for check-ups for the rest of us?
I want this doctor to write a letter to my life insurance company to help me get better rates
