The White House released the results of Donald Trump's most recent physical on Wednesday, and his personal physician Dr. Sean Conley claims the 73-year-old is in good health. The doctor also said that the president showed no side effects from taking a two-week dosage of the unproven medication hydroxychloroquine to protect himself from the coronavirus.

The results were based on examinations that occurred between November 2019 and April 2020.

"There has been no interval change to the President's medical history," Dr. Conley wrote in his findings.

The results also claimed that Trump is 6'3" and that he weighs 244 pounds, which is considered obese. His screenings for diabetes and high cholesterol were both within the normal range.

Many on social media, however, aren't buying that he actually weighs that little and is that tall.

"Trump is 6’3 244, like the Park Police didn’t use tear gas, just because you say it doesn’t make it true," one person joked.

"Was Trump’s 'official' medical exam performed in outer space? Weight of 244 lbs? Oh, okay," another added.

"Since it's increasingly hard to find things that are laugh out loud funny these days, in case you missed it, Donald Trump's personal physician said Wednesday that Donald is 6'3" and 244 pounds," a third user said.

The jokes are a nice reprieve from the very serious news surrounding the ongoing protests across the nation calling for justice and social reform after George Floyd was killed on May 25th.

On Monday, few were laughing when various law enforcement entities cleared the streets of peaceful protests in D.C. so that Trump could walk across the street and have a photo-op in front of a church while he held a bible.

Just before that, Trump made a speech in the White House Rose Garden during which he called himself the "law and order president" and threatened to send the military into cities to fight its own citizens.

His own former Secretary of Defense published a scathing takedown of the president's attempts to divide the country during this trying time.

“Donald Trump is the first president in my lifetime who does not try to unite the American people—does not even pretend to try. Instead, he tries to divide us,” Gen. James Mattis wrote.

Floyd was killed when former Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin knelt on the back of Floyd's neck for nearly nine minutes while he was laying face down on the pavement in handcuffs. Chauvin has been charged with second degree murder.
