Donald Trump gobbles down fast food like a teenage stoner with a neverending case of the munchies, but nevertheless, the 70-year-old GOP nominee claims that he is the pinnacle of physical fitness. He even managed to produce a totally legitimate doctor’s note proclaiming that he would be the healthiest man to ever serve as president. But it doesn’t sound like Joe Biden is convinced.
The vice president spoke to reporters this week and told them that he thinks the idea of Trump being the healthiest man to call the White House home is downright laughable. Biden even suggested that they have a little race to put the billionaire blowhard’s physical fitness to the test.
“I’d like to jog with him,” Biden told CBS reporter Mark Knoller. “I don’t think he could keep up.”
The Donald supposedly took a physical just last week and has promised to release the results to the public, despite the previously mentioned not at all bogus letter written by his gastroenterologist. He is also set to reveal his health “regimen” this week during an appearance on the Dr. Oz show.
At this point, it is probably worth noting that a Dr. Oz has been hauled before the senate for giving bullshit medical advice and a research team found barely 20 percent of the medical claims made on his show to be supported by science. In fact, Dr. Oz is such a quack that he almost makes the doctor who wrote that completely believable letter touting Trump’s health look like a solid source.
For the record, Trump’s trusted gastroenterologist of more than 30 years, Dr. Harold Bornstein, has been sued repeatedly for accidentally drugging his patients to death and being “negligent, careless and unskilled.” Bornstein also admitted that he wrote that totally convincing letter about Trump’s health in about five minutes.
Regardless, I for one would love to see a race between Trump and Biden. I know who I’d put my money on because I have no doubt that Biden would leave Trump in the dust.
