Trump’s doctor shares ‘unbiased, 100 percent accurate’ health assessment in ‘SNL’ cold open


“Saturday Night Live” opened this week’s episode with a parody of President Trump’s doctor sharing Trump’s physical results at a White House press briefing. 

Cast member Beck Bennett played Trump’s doctor, Navy Rear Adm. Dr. Ronny Jackson, who earlier this week declared the president is physically and mentally fit enough to perform his job.

“This is the president’s unbiased, 100 percent accurate health assessment,” Bennett says as Jackson.

“At the time of examination, the president was 71 years and 7 months young, his resting heart rate was a cool 68 bpm, his weight a very svelte 248 pounds, he has a gorgeous 44-inch coke-bottle waist, and his height, 75 inches with legs that seem to go on forever,” he continued. “It’s my expert medical opinion that the president has a rockin’ bod with an excellent cushion for the pushin’. And if given the chance, I would.” {mosads}

“He’s healthy enough to be president for another 10 to 20 years, easy.”

Bennett’s Jackson went on to accept questions from reporters, which included one journalist, played by Kate McKinnon, asking “how broke that brain?”

“We did do a cognitive exam at the president’s request and he passed it with flying colors, almost no hits,” Beckett answered as Jackson. 

Aidy Bryant, as Sarah Huckabee Sanders, cut in to conclude that Trump ultimately “crushed” every physical exam, as well as the “tide pod challenge” — referring to the dangerous viral trend.
