WASHINGTON (The Borowitz Report)—Amid reports that Donald Trump might soon be summoned to appear before Robert Mueller, the White House doctor wrote a note on Wednesday indicating that Trump was too sick to talk to the special counsel.
"Donald Trump is not well," Dr. Ronny Jackson wrote.
The doctor's note offered a laundry list of ailments afflicting Trump, including flu-like symptoms, upset stomach, headaches, dizziness, confusion, and what Jackson called a "wartime foot injury that appears to be acting up."
Jackson acknowledged in the note that his current assessment of Trump's health was at odds with the robust picture he painted last week, but added, "Every patient is entitled to a second opinion, and this is mine."
Minutes after the White House doctor issued his note, the special counsel responded by indicating that if Trump is too ill to come to Mueller's office, then Mueller would be "more than happy" to interrogate Trump at his sickbed.
The White House doctor, however, quickly rebuffed this offer. "The strain of being under oath and giving truthful answers could kill him," the doctor said.
