Despite President Trump’s positive health exam results, CNN simply won’t accept the White House doctor’s assessment.
Pundits who have not examined Trump parsed the results and drew conclusions likely intended to scare viewers.
Host Alisyn Camerota and medical analyst Sanji Gupta declared Trump to be “borderline obese,” predicted he would have a heart attack in “3-5 years” and Gupta concluded the president has heart disease.
Camerota held back laughs over Trump’s height, which the exam found to be 6’3″. He had reportedly been 6’2″ in the past.
“Somehow he has grown while being in the White House,” she snarked.
Because of Trump’s weight of 239 lbs., she said his Body Mass Index is “two-nine point nine.”
Gupta conceded the BMI ratio is “not a perfect ratio by any means,” but nevertheless, went on to declare Trump “borderline obese.”
“So he’s point-one away from being in the obese category,” Camerota emphasized.
After Vice President Joe Biden’s doctor panned CNN’s hysteria, Camerota went back to Gupta.
Because of Trump’s calcium score, CNN predicted the president will have a “heart attack or heart disease” in “3-5 years.”
But Gupta was more aggressive.
“So the president has heart disease,” he declared.
Yesterday, CNN host Brian Stelter didn’t accept Dr. Ronny Jackson’s findings, either.
Here's how the next few hours will go. Trump supporters will say "Concerns about Trump's mental health were always absurd. Case closed now." The obvious response: "The Q's about fitness for office are serious. Someone could be sharp as a tack, but still unfit"

“Here’s how the next few hours will go,” he sniffed. “Trump supporters will say ‘Concerns about Trump’s mental health were always absurd. Case closed now.’
“The obvious response: ‘The Q’s about fitness for office are serious. Someone could be sharp as a tack, but still unfit,” he tweeted.
