NEW YORK — Donald Trump's latest doctor's visit couldn't have gone better.

he Republican presidential nominee went on the Dr. Oz show to reveal his health report to the world. Despite being told it wouldn't hurt for him to lose a few pounds, Dr. Oz gave Trump a clean bill of health.

"If a patient of mine had these records I'd be really happy." Dr. Oz said.

However, Trump should take that with a grain of salt. Dr. Oz has often been criticized for the science behind his medical reasoning on the show.

Even the good doctor himself has said that the show isn't about health.

"The show's purpose is not to talk about medicine," Dr. Oz said in an interview with NBC news in April 2015. "The show's purpose is to talk about the good life."

Speaking of the purpose of talking, Trump's speech to a black church in Flint got shut down by the pastor when his comments started turning into a stump speech.

"Mr. Trump, I invited you here to thank us for what we've done in Flint, not give a political speech," Rev. Faith Green Timmons said.

Trump complied and moved on. Later, Rev. Timmons stood up for him when a group in the crowd started to heckle.

"Mr. Trump is a guest of my church and you will respect him." she said.

While the pastor eventually had Trump's back, a newspaper in New Hampshire is turning its back on him.

The Union Leader, the largest newspaper in the state, chose to endorse Libertarian presidential nominee Gary Johnson. It's the first time in more than a century that the newspaper has not endorsed the Republican nominee.

In its editorial, the newspaper called Trump "a liar, a bully, and a buffoon."

The paper's editorial board said Trump "denigrates any individual or group that displeases him," and "changes political views almost as often as he changes wives."

So Trump's health is great, and his poll numbers are OK, but losing out on endorsements like this could mean his campaign needs to go in for a few more tests.
