MSNBC’s Joe Scarborough agreed that White House Dr. Ronny Jackson is a credible physician, but then pivoted and said he acted too “Trumpian” by exaggerating President Donald Trump’s clean bill of health.

“He didn’t sound like a doctor,” Scarborough said Thursday on “Morning Joe.” “I’m sure this guy’s a great guy, great physician, blah blah blah. He shouldn’t have sounded so Trumpian first of all and second, he works in a White House where just about everybody who makes public statements lies.”

Scarborough also began reading an article from The Washington Post about Jackson, and mocked him by repeating his quotes in an over-the-top voice.


Scarborough continued the rant and said the cognitive exam on which President Donald Trump scored perfectly wasn’t a true measurement of his mental health.

“The White House spokesman said we weren’t going to have a cognitive exam. Made a point to say no cognitive exam,” Scarborough said. “And [Trump] can tell what lions and rhinos and giraffes and little monkeys are? Great! That’s fine. But it was, I don’t know, it was Trumpian to say the least.”
