Trump and Cotton credibility exam: Darcy cartoon

CLEVELAND, Ohio -- President Trump passed the cognitive test of his medical exam, but continues to routinely fail credibility/integrity tests on a weekly basis, such as his claim that he would sign any bipartisan Spending/DACA Bill put before him without objection.

The Birther-in-Chief’s medical exam listed height and weight of 6′3″ and 239 pounds have spawned a “Girther” movement of skeptics on social media.

“Guardians of the Galaxy” director James Gunn has pledged to give $100,000 to charity if Trump will step on an accurate scale to verify the 239 pounds his medical exam found he weighed.

“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. For real. #Girther #GirtherMovement,” Gunn wrote in a Tuesday tweet.

On social media, photos of Trump golfing are being posted side by side with photos of professional athletes listed as 6′3″ and weighing 235-239 pounds. Trump appears to be a foot shorter and heavier in all of them.

Trump’s most recent New York state drivers license shows his height being six foot-two inches.

Maybe Trump had Tom Cotton in the exam room to read the scale. Like Trump, Cotton failed the integrity/credibility test when he claimed not to have heard Trump say “S-hole” in the DACA meeting. Cotton may have stood in for Trump for the weigh in as he actually looks like he could pass for 6′3″ and 239 pounds.

President Trump’s medical exam also found him to be in good cardiac health, citing his abstaining from drinking and smoking. Apparently being a tweeting addict does not adversely affect cardiac health. What it does for the nation’s health is another story.

It would have been interesting for the White House doctor to check Trump’s blood pressure when he heard about “Fire and Fury”, Bannon’s subpoenas, the Fusion GPS testimony being released, John Kelly’s comments on the wall or the story about Trump and porn star Stormy Daniels coming out despite hush money being paid.
