White House: Trump's throat 'was dry'

US President Donald Trump delivers a statement on Jerusalem as US Vice President Mike Pence looks on in the Diplomatic Reception Room of the White House in Washington DC

Just two hours after Senator Al Franken announced Thursday he is resigning amid sexual misconduct allegations, Sarah Huckabee Sanders was asked about the far more severe and extensive allegations of sexual assault against President Trump by at least 16 different women.

Sanders was walking off the podium after declaring a wrap on the briefing when she did an about face, returning to podium.

"There were a lot of questions on that". She called them "pretty ridiculous" -and yet worth breaking her "rules" over.

Past presidents have typically undergone annual physical examinations with a military doctor and released those records to the public.

Trump has frequently touted his oral health in the past.

Former President Obama's first health report was made public on February 28, 2010. Hillary Clinton won almost 3 million more votes than Trump, so by the White House Press Secretary's standards, the American people actually do want to hold Trump accountable.

The records release will be the first time the American public gets a legitimate accounting of the health of the 45th President, who at age 71 is the oldest of any President at this point in his tenure.

Trump released a clean bill of health from his longtime personal physician past year that was widely panned as laughable for lacking details and offering an over-the-top portrait of Trump's health.

Former campaign manager Corey Lewandowski claimed in his new book that Trump's usual McDonald's order consisted of "two Big Macs, two Filet-O-Fish and a chocolate malted".

"If elected, Mr. Trump, I can state unequivocally, will be the healthiest individual ever elected to presidency", the doctor declared.

In a September 2016 television appearance on "Dr. Oz", Trump said he does not work out but considers his speeches to be exercise.

"So I think he's in pretty good health", he said. "A lot of times these rooms are very hot, like saunas, and I guess that is a form of exercise".
