Colbert jokes Trump paid off doctor to say he’s not obese

Late-night host Stephen Colbert on Tuesday joked that President Trump paid off his doctor so that he would not be placed in the obese category for his weight.

Colbert poked fun at Trump’s exam, which showed that he is 239 pounds, exactly one pound away from the obesity category by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s body mass index.

“’Listen doc, I don’t want to be obese, but I feel like this wad of cash is about one pound. Why don’t you take that off my hands and weigh me again?’”

While the president’s doctor said he is physically and mentally fit for office, he also has high cholesterol, for which he takes the drug Crestor.
