Saturday Night Live Mocks Trump’s Physician’s Off-The-Rails Report On Trump’s Health

“Saturday Night Live” opened its episode Saturday night by taking jabs at Donald Trump’s doctor, Ronny Jackson, and the physical exam the Trump underwent that said he weighed 239 pounds.

Opening the show was Aidy Bryant as Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders, who acknowledged that today was the anniversary of the Women’s March but said there were “a million women out there to celebrate the president’s first kick-a– year in office. We did it, girls!”

After mentioning Trump’s plan for the border wall that includes “some parts see-through, some parts fence, and some parts just empty space that operate on the honor system,” Bryant’s Sanders went on to ask the press assembled for the conference in the cold open sketch to get #SchumerShutdown trending and then introduced Beck Bennett’s Ronny Jackson.

Bennett’s Jackson reiterated the stats from Trump’s real life physical exam but added he has a “44-inch coke bottle waist, legs seem to go on forever, size 12 shoes so you can fill in the blanks there.”

“The president has a rockin’ bod with enough cushion for the pushin’ and if I could I would,” Bennett’s Jackson said. “He’s healthy enough to be president for another 10 to 20 years easy.”

Kate McKinnon played a reporter who stood up to ask “How broke that brain?” to which Bennett’s Jackson said they did do a cognitive exam and the president “passed it with flying colors, no hints.”

Overall, the results were that when it came to ” the physical exam, the mental exam — the Tide pod challenge, [Trump] crushed it.”
