The news that Trump is going to the Walter Reed National Military Medical Center in Bethesda, Maryland on Saturday triggered a flood of speculation and rumors, even though the White House and the President himself downplayed the spontaneous visit over the weekend. On late Monday, White House Press Secretary Stephanie Grisham attempted to dispel concerns by publishing a memo by Trump's physician Sean Conley, stressing that the president had had no "urgent or acute problems" and The trip was "a routine, planned interim review as part of regular primary care".
"If something was terribly wrong with Trump, the White House just pretended that everything was normal," Noah said on Monday night. Trump was able to return with both arms amputated and his spokesman said, "This was just a standard exam. The weapons of the president have always been brooms. He uses them to clean up Washington, D.C.
Noah's skepticism was repeated late on Monday when other comics mocked him about the official story of Trump's weekend visit. On Saturday, Grisham told Jean Foxro of Fox News that Trump "used a" day off "and" wanted to conduct some routine examinations as part of his annual exam, "stressing that the president was" as healthy as possible. "Trump tweeted later started the first phase of my annual physical training. Everything was very good (great!). Will be completed next year. "
" Next year? Asked an incredulous Jimmy Kimmel in his ABC show. "Was this a physical remodeling or kitchen remodeling?"
Meanwhile, Stephen Colbert was looking forward to the next installment of the investigation.
"Yes, Trump's first part of his physical transformation will be such a success next year, with a sequel to come out," joked Colbert. "Colonoscopy 2: 2 Blocked 2 Scope."
Even Grisham's comments did not go unnoticed by the late-night hosts.
After Colbert played a clip of the press secretary explaining what Trump was up to on his rare free weekend, "Okay, that's the saddest thing I've ever heard."
The host said and gave in as Trump. "I could spend it with my kids – not really my thing. With my wife – no, she hates me. My friends – all in prison. You know what? I'm just going to the hospital. Use pins and needles to feel something.
Both Colbert and Kimmel resisted Grisham's fierce assessment of Trump's health, and while appearing on Fox News, Grisham said Trump had "more energy than anyone else in the White House," causing Pirro to respond, "He is almost superhuman. "
" He is a 73-year-old insomniac who only eats fast food and who is afraid to go down the stairs? "Colbert said."
Kimmel was equally skeptical.
"Right, he's faster than a tweeting bullet," said the ABC presenter. "He is capable of bankrupting tall buildings in a single step."
Back in the Comedy Central, Noah had only more questions to visit the secret doctor.
"Did Trump have a heart problem or a stroke?" Noah asked. "And if he had a stroke, how would you even know?"
The host quickly replied.
"No, because "The symptoms of a stroke are slurred speech, confusion, and unpredictable behavior," he said. "For Trump, this is a Tuesday."
But while Noah joked about the possibility of a stroke, David Scheiner, who formerly told the former president Barack Obama treated, Erin Burnett by CNN The danger of this happening is probably more likely than people believe.
"His inability to say words sometimes worries me," Scheiner said on Monday about Trump. "He's having trouble finding words, these are not slip-ups."
Scheiner added that the "peculiar" symptom may be is a "neurological problem" suggesting that is not addressed.
"The concern I have is that he may be small in strokes," said the doctor.
Conley, Trump's physician, noted in his memo on Monday night that the president "It No special cardiac or neurological examinations have been performed to refute "speculation" about a medical emergency.
Many remained unconvinced.
"The first sentence alone has about four synonyms for "routine," wrote the Twitter user. "It then shows us all the medical problems that Trump definitely does not have." It's a good thing that this White House has a reputation for Ehrli quality and transparency.
"Since Trump got a bad case of bone spur during the Vietnam War, he has managed to get his doctors to lie to him," the person wrote. "Who knows if any of this is true."
