‘Morning Joe’ Speculates About Trump’s Weight: ‘He’s Got a Lot of Comorbidities’
President Donald Trump may have inadvertently made his health an issue again by claiming he’s taken an unproven Coronavirus treatment, hydroxychloroquine. On MSNBC’s Morning Joe on Wednesday, co-hosts Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski speculated about the President’s weight and general health.
“He spent April talking about injecting disinfectants into the body, sticking lights in the body,” Scarborough said.
“Dr. Fauci warning, because he’s right, that the chances are very good this pandemic could come back even stronger in the fall during flu season. The President saying it’s not coming back in the fall. And now in May he’s saying he’s taking hydroxychloroquine.”
“Something that a guy who’s old, in his mid-70s who’s — I don’t know, what he is? He’s 270, 275, 280?” he wondered.
“Maybe more, yeah,” Brzezinski said.
“He’s got a lot of comorbidities,” Scarborough went on. “A guy like that, who eats badly, doesn’t sleep – no doctor is going to let him take a drug that his own administration, the Trump administration, has said could cause heart problems in older patients with — with comorbidities. And he’s the definition of that.”
“So every American needs to hope that the President of the United States is not taking that drug because of the warnings from the VA, because of the warnings from his own FDA, because of the warnings from Dr. Fauci, because of the warnings from the Trump Administration. So let us hope he’s not doing that for his own sake.”
“You never know. He should wear a mask as well,” Brzezinski added.
