Kimmel Teases Trump on 'Healthiest President Ever'

Donald Trump swung through Los Angeles on Wednesday for an appearance on "Jimmy Kimmel Live," as the host riffed with the Republican presidential candidate over his campaign's penchant for hyperbole.

A case in point was a recently released medical report, in which Trump's doctor wrote that Trump "would be the healthiest individual ever elected to the presidency."

"How do you get a doctor to write something?" Kimmel asked.

Trump replied, "I said, doc, I want to tell you, I will be the healthiest president ever. And he said, hmmm. I think I agree. And I think he probably took my words and put them down."

Kimmel then flashed a Facebook picture of Trump's doctor, Howard Bornstein, in which he looks more like a scruffy beach bum than a medical professional.

"Oh wow," Trump said.

"What kind of a doctor is he?" Kimmel asked.

The show released a clip in advance of Wednesday's broadcast.

Kimmel also joked in his monologue about Tuesday night's debate in Las Vegas.

"Mr. Trump was in Las Vegas last night - for the fifth Republican debate," Kimmel said. "It was the third most-watched primary debate ever. Eighteen million viewers tuned in - more people watched the debate than watched the season finale of 'The Voice.' Maybe Carly Fiorina is the new Gwen Stefani."

Another quip: "My biggest take-away from last night is that, whoever wins the election, we need to force Jeb Bush and Donald Trump to live in a house together with cameras on them 24/7."

Trump was to appear in October, but canceled because of an undisclosed campaign obligation. But the campaign did vow to reschedule.
