As Twitchy reported, some of the results of President Trump’s physical exam were made public at a presser Tuesday held by Dr. Ronny Jackson, who noted that the president is in excellent health but could stand to lose a few pounds.
Dr. Jackson said the president weighed in at 239 pounds, but NBC News’ Ken Dilanian has noted quite a bit of skepticism about that number.
Seeing a lot of skepticism over the idea that @realDonaldTrump weighs only 239 pounds. Would he step on a scale in public to prove it?

Come on … Sarah Huckabee Sanders already had to bake White House correspondent April Ryan a pecan pie to prove she didn’t “fake” a Thanksgiving tweet — now Trump is supposed to step on a scale in public because reporters are skeptical of his physical exam results?
The military doctor hired during the Obama administration is lying, says NBC’s intelligence and national security reporter. https://t.co/touQ1LBrZp

SO you're saying that Rear Admiral Ronny Jackson a LIAR, right? The same WH physician that also took care of Bush and Obama. https://t.co/mdIFjdzjDT

feel like the bigger story here is the fact that you think president obama's former doctor is a liar https://t.co/pVhW1CbBjw

Strangely, I never saw this level of interest into whether Obama actually quit smoking, as he claimed. https://t.co/ZiQALhERfV

Guess I missed the constitutional amendment that required presidents to do public weigh-ins like they are about to prize fight https://t.co/mF3pWAheC1

Could you imagine Ken asking this about a President Hillary Clinton? https://t.co/RU9PSPOi7g

Would have been hilarious if HRC was president and you guys asked her to step on a scale…if yall were really worried about overweight why no questions about Hillarys health? https://t.co/2fuMJv9E2S

Imagine the autistic screeching if they asked Hillary to prove her weight.
She actually had serious heath issues that were never scrutinized like this or Dr. Ronny Jackson. https://t.co/5MUSs5WbZQ

Send this tweet out, but replace Trump's name with any woman in the public eye.
See what happens! https://t.co/dLUE3uZvX1

You know what really matters right now ? Not what we're gonna do about immigration or keeping the government running. What's really important is figuring out whether the President is 239 or 240 pounds. This is so stupid. https://t.co/TA4u0HXpG9

Exit question from MSNBC’s Chris Hayes:
Has anyone coined "girther" for those who belive the president weighs more than his doctor reports?
