The White House media characters are unintentionally hilarious.
For almost one solid hour, they posed one repetitive, boring, tasteless question after another to the president's physician, the gist of each one being "Is he going to die soon?" The White House press corps is obviously unable and totally unwilling to accept the doctor's repeated pronouncement that President Donald Trump is "in excellent health." This unwelcome conclusion is the very essence of "bad news" for the left wing media. They seemed to really come unglued at the doctor's suggestion that the president is healthy enough to serve two terms.
Dr. Jackson was instructed by the president to answer any and all inquiries regarding his health. There were constant questions on whether or not President Trump suffers health issues from dementia, heart disease, obesity, high cholesterol, mental problems, and/or (my personal favorite) drug addiction. There was one particularly ridiculous question about his life expectancy (back to "is he going to die soon?"). I don't know how Dr. Jackson had the patience and good nature to entertain so many continuously stupid questions, but he did so very competently and with good grace. The press just wouldn't take "YES" for an answer to the question of President Trump's excellent health.
I watched all of the tedious, inadvertently funny press conference. It could have been ten minutes in length if all the repetition had been removed. It is highly amusing in a pathetic way that the reporters were desperate to find a "health loophole" that could take Trump out of the presidency. At the risk of being repetitive, I'll say it again--the press just wouldn't take "YES" for an answer to the question of President Trump's excellent health.
