Stephen Colbert took to last night’s Late Show to examine Donald Trump’s recent health report, discovering him to be just one pound shy of obesity.

That’s certainly quite convenient for the president!

Last night on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert, Colbert dove into Donald Trump’s new health report. According to the physician, the president is 6’3″ and 239 pounds. Colbert takes these stats and digs a little deeper, comparing them to the federal Health and Human Services department. By these standards, Trump is overweight to the point of being just one pound short of being labeled as obese.

“One pound short of being obese? That’s awfully convenient,” Colbert remarks. Going into his Trump impression mode, Colbert imagines the president offering the doctor a big wad of cash and insisting he doesn’t want to be called obese. “Why don’t you take that off my hands and weigh me again?” he jokes.

Colbert then gets a little further into it, with Trump’s physician claiming that the president is fit enough to hold office for another seven years in office, if need be. When pressured how Trump can be in such good shape despite all of the McDonald’s food and sodas his diet consists of, all the physician can say is that it’s just good genes.”Okay, great genes, but he can’t fit in them,” Colbert responds.
