“Guardians of the Galaxy” director James Gunn is offering to donate $100,000 to President Trump’s charity of choice if the president weighs himself on an “accurate scale” following the release of his first physical exam.

“I will give 100 thousand dollars to Trump’s favorite charity if he will step on an accurate scale with an impartial medical professional, okayed by both of us,” Gunn tweeted Tuesday. “For real.” 

Gunn then tweeted a photo of MLB star Albert Pujols alongside Trump, comparing their heights and weights as listed in Trump’s physical exam results. 

The White House released the results of Trump’s first physical exam as president on Tuesday.

{mosads}Trump’s White House doctor, Navy Rear Adm. Dr. Ronny Jackson, declared the president is in “excellent” health. Jackson fielded questions at Tuesday’s White House press briefing for roughly an hour. 

Trump was listed at 75 inches tall and 239 pounds, according to the exam results.

Jackson said that Trump’s “overall health is excellent,” adding that the president had mostly normal results on several tests of his cholesterol and heart health. 

“His cardiac performance during his physical exam was very good, he continues to enjoy the significant, long-term cardiac and overall health benefits that come from a lifetime of abstinence from tobacco and alcohol,” Jackson said.  

“All data indicates the president is healthy and will remain so for the duration of his presidency,” he added.
