Trump's second annual physical on Friday revealed he's in "very good health" without any details.

President Trump had his second full physical exam Friday. By the evening, the the 72-year-old’s personal physician — Dr. Sean Conley — released a statement saying a team of 11 doctors had examined Trump. But he included no details about their findings, saying only that Trump is in “very good health.” In an unusual move, he also predicted the future over the next two years by stating that he expects the commander-in-chief to remain healthy “for the remainder of his presidency and beyond.”

The results echoed last year’s exam, when Trump’s then-White House physician Dr. Ronny Jackson declared the president in “excellent” physical and cognitive condition. That physical attracted an unusual degree of scrutiny amid questions about Trump’s mental health and fitness for office. In a first, Trump had requested a cognitive exam — apparently a response to Democratic members of Congress who had reignited the discussion about the 25th Amendment, a process that could remove a president who is unfit to govern.

But again, that physical didn’t really reveal anything new about the president’s health.

And we shouldn’t expect this year’s exam to either: The presidential physical exam is best understood as political theater — a show of the president’s vigor and fitness — not an opportunity to reveal new medical information. Here’s what to know about the second exam......

12. It's like "eleven herbs and spices". Trump revels in horseshit stats.

One doctor can give you a clean bill of health, but 11 doctors sounds at least 20 times more convincing!

13. Pretty stupid, but 38% of this country...

Does think this guy is like Doc Savage, when we've seen with our own eyes that he can't walk 30 feet without a golf cart or other transportation.

7. This doctor refused to go along with the "239 pounds" lie? Height, weight, vital signs are de rigeur

when discussing a person's health data/status. Not saying anything in that vein *is* saying something.

Since heights don't increase at his age, Trump cannot further inflate his previous lie of 6'3" I guess... So the only way to not publicly admit obesity was to not say anything about his weight. What a pathetically vain asshole Trump is. A crap load of Americans are obese, so are you Trump, BFD. Get over it!

8. "... a team of 11 doctors had examined Trump."

So, ten of them to wrestle away the cheeseburger from him during the exam?

10. Why would a person in "very good health"

Need to be examined by 11 doctors?

11. Do people in "very good health" slur their words sometimes?

Do they look like they eat a bag of Big Macs for breakfast? Do they have a button on their desk to call for neverending Coke refills? Is their only physical activity riding in a golf cart? I say we put the "National Enquirer" on the case.
