Is the president obligated to eat healthy?
After White House physician Dr. Ronny Jackson claimed President Trump is 6'3" and 239 lbs, many questioned the accuracy of the physical. According to The New York Times, President Trump drinks 12 Diet Cokes per day and his McDonald's order consists of "two Big Macs, two Filet-O-Fish, and a chocolate malted." Many wonder if, as president, Trump is obligated to take better care of himself. But others feel Trump's food choices aren't anyone's business, and this is just another excuse to attack the president. What do you think? 🍔 🍟

During a White House press briefing, White House physician Dr. Ronny Jackson proclaimed President's Trump's overall health is "excellent." The physical exam found Trump was 6'3" and 239 lbs and has no signs of cognitive declineas has been rumored of late.

In short, it finds that Trump, at 239 pounds, is overweight but otherwise healthy, with normal blood pressure. He also passed a cognitive test that looks for signs of dementia. Jackson told the White House press corps Tuesday that “there’s absolutely nothing I am withholding from this [report].”

But Trump's unsettling eating habits have long been a topic of discussion. A new book by former campaign manager Corey Lewandowski and aid David Bossie claim Donald Trump's regular McDonald's order was a 2,400-calorie meal consisting of "two Big Macs, two Filet-O-Fish, and a chocolate malted,” doubling the American Heart Association's recommended sodium intake.

A dinner of that size would offer caloric energy for a full day. The 3,400 milligrams of sodium more than doubles the American Heart Association’s recommendation of 1,500 milligrams per day. The meal provides almost no fiber—and also offers more white bread than anyone would do well to eat in a week. This is all ominous for the president’s cardiovascular system.

Trump Force One was reportedly full of junk food like "Vienna Fingers, potato chips, pretzels, and many packages of Oreos." Even Ivanka Trump has urged her father to take better care of himself.

Ivanka Trump said in a 2015 interview with Barbara Walters, “I wish he would eat healthier and maybe slow down. Sometimes I tell him, like, ‘Oh, you have to, you know, slow down.’ But it’s the only speed he knows ...”

Others believe Dr. Jackson lied about Trump's weight so he wouldn't be considered obese.

Which led to the creation of the "girther" movement.

But Trump doesn't seem to hide his eating habits, like when he was photographed eating KFC on his private plane.

And many on the left are calling on people to give the conspiracy theories a rest.

Others believe Trump's excessive consumption of Diet Coke and cable news are detrimental to his health.

Defenders of Trump think attacks on his health are absurd. Trump's diet shouldn't be up for debate, and clearly it hasn't slowed him down thus far.
