AP Reporter Asks Trump’s Doctor What His Life Expectancy Is

It seems pretty obvious that the only reason you would ask this question is if you’re hoping it’s a relatively short one.

AP reporter Jill Colvin was in attendance at the press briefing by White House physician, Dr. Ronny L. Jackson. Jackson gave the media the results from President Trump’s physical, which included a perfect score on a cognitive test designed to screen for neurological impairment.

Much to Colvin and the media’s dismay, Jackson said, “I’ve found no reason whatsoever to think the president has any issues whatsoever with his thought processes.”

When the results didn’t go their way, Colvin went low, asking about Trump’s life expectancy.

“Do you have a life expectancy based on your results?” Colvin asked.

Note the awkward smile on Jackson’s face as he fields the completely out-of-line question. Not to mention the quick shake of the head while others in the room laugh.

Colvin, meanwhile, has a grin on her face during the back and forth. Because the White House Press Pool is the place for juvenile games.

If you’re the Associated Press, is that the kind of reporter you want covering the White House? One who either thinks she’s making a joke about the President dying, or is actually hoping to find out that he is dying?

In fact, the Secret Service and Administration officials may want to look into whether or not Colvin should have her credentials revoked for this stunt.

Colvin also asked the White House official if he had found evidence of bone spurs, a clear shot at Trump’s medical reason for getting one of five military deferments during the Vietnam War.

The AP reporter took up the doctor’s time to ask two ridiculous questions designed to get a rise out of the far-left. That’s the media’s core audience right now.

Is this what we need covering the President – an SNL wannabe? Or should the White House press be reserved for actual respected journalists? Share your thoughts below!

  • The MSM have been owned by people wanting to see this nation bleed. So what else would you expect from America haters and the ones that sell out their nation for profit. Anyone who has watched any of these so called reporters asking questions during a biffing know this question is the norm. Look at those clowns from CNN. When these flakes start heading for prison in the near future it won't have any meaning to the stupid and from the support of hillary we all know we have more than our share of stupid

  • Colvin's life expectancy may be the issue, if she doesn't take up Jenny Craig this new year.

  • the Media is totally eat up with the insanity cancer.. I don't think there is one good working brain cell among them.. they asked the most insane questions... They have NO business being reporters.. they do nothing but report their twisted lies anymore... they are negative toward Trump and refuse to report the good he is doing... they are appalling

  • Associated Press "reporters" with idiotic questions like this are prime examples why the "news" media is held in such low esteem. And they claim to be the professionals. They graduate college only knowing how to spout their leftist professor's dogma while showing zero class doing it.
