'SNL': President Donald Trump Passed His Physical - And The Tide Pod Challenge

In a spoof of Trump's physical exam on Tuesday, in which White House doctor Ronny Jackson gave a press conference where he stated that he "found no reason whatsoever to think the president has any issues whatsoever with his thought processes" and that Trump had won a ideal score on his cognitive test, cast member Beck Bennett, playing Ronny Jackson, flattered the president's physical condition, from his age to his weight.

When cast member Pete Davidson announced himself as a member of Saturday Night Live and asked a question about Stormy Daniels, Huckabee Sanders stepped in to interrupt the briefing.

"The President's got a rockin' bod with a flawless amount of cushion for the pushin", said the smitten doc.

The reporters in the sketch don't buy it.

"We did do a cognitive exam at the president's request and he passed it with flying colors, nearly no hits", Beckett answered as Jackson.

Another reporter, played by "SNL" cast member Mikey Day, asks, "The president has bragged about scoring higher on that test than any other president, is that true?"


"Some people are saying these results are fabricated because they've taken even one look at the president", says one. A White House doctor pronounced President Trump medically fit to serve as commander-in-chief on Tuesday - and added that he easily passed a voluntary cognitive assessment created to test his mental reflexes.

Trump's doctor fields a question about the President that many are asking.

Aidy Bryant, as Sarah Huckabee Sanders, cut in to conclude that Trump ultimately "crushed" every physical exam as well as the "tide pod challenge", - referring to the risky viral video challenge.

Later in the show, SNL host Jessica Chastain delivered a monologue that was a musical tribute to the Women's March anniversary.

This week's cold open centered on the physical examination performed on the president this week. "We did it girls!"

"Thank you for all for being here", Bryant's Sanders says to the reporters. "And it will be paid for by Mexico with US taxpayer money".
