In a White House press briefing on Tuesday, President Donald Trump’s doctor answered questions about the president’s “first periodic physical exam as President of the United States.” But, reporters repeatedly interrogated the doctor about Trump’s mental fitness.

When first asked about Trump’s cognitive abilities, his personal doctor, Brigadier General Dr. Richard Tubb declared:

“I had absolutely no concerns about his cognitive ability or his neurological functions.”

Dr. Tubb also said that Trump unprompted, volunteered to take highly-regarded cognitive tested and earned a perfect score (30 of 30) - but, the media wouldn’t let it go.

Out of 49 questions reporters asked the president’s doctor about Trump’s health, 19--or 38.7 percent--were about his mental fitness:

  • Eight “cognitive” health questions (one including also asking about “dementia”),
  • Seven “mental” health questions,
  • Three psychological/psychiatric questions,
  • One drug addiction question

That’s more than one out of every three question (1 of every 2.6), or 39%.

Overall, Dr. Tubb declared that Trump’s health is “excellent.”

Brigadier General Dr. Richard Tubb is a White House physician emeritus, a retired military officer, and one of the longest-serving White House physicians in history, serving from 1995-2009.
