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."
