INTERVIEW UP.

BECAUSE I'M SURE I DID.

YESTERDAY WE WERE TALKING

ABOUT JOHN McCAIN RECENTLY

RELEASED MEDICAL RECORDS,

1200 PAGES COVERING ALL THE

DISEASES HE'S HAD IN THE

LAST EIGHT YEARS FROM A TO Z,

FROM ACCUSE -- ACUTE OLDNESS

TO ZABAR'S ELBOW.

THAT IS A REPETITIVE MOTION

INJURY CAUSED BY EXCESSIVE

SHMEARING.

(LAUGHTER)

>> Jon: THAT IS SOMETHING

YOU MIGHT WANT TO ASK YOUR

JEWISH FRIENDS WHO LIVE

BETWEEN 709 AND LET'S SAY

90TH STREET ON THE WEST SIDE

OF MANHATTAN.

NARROW JOKE.

FAIR IS FAIR, BARACK OBAMA

RELEASED HIS MEDICAL RECORDS

ENTAILING THE LAST 21 YEAR,

AND THIS IS THEM, I KID YOU

NOT.

(LAUGHTER)

>> Jon: A ONE-PAGE LETTER

FROM OBAMA'S DOCTOR STATING

THAT THE SENATOR -- AND IT

IS TO WHOM IT MAY CONCERN,

IN EXCELLENT HEALTH AND

CONTINUING QUOTE ON PHYSICAL

COMPASSION HIS BLOOD

PRESSURE WAS 90 OVER 60,

PULSE 60 BEATS PER MINUTE,

HIS BUILD WAS LEAN AND

MUSCULAR WITH NO EXCESS BODY

FAT.

HIS CHEST WAS SMOOTH AND

HARD LIKE THE HOOD OF A --

(LAUGHTER)

>> Jon: LOOK THE HOOD OF A

MUSTANG.

(LAUGHTER)

>> Jon: AS I WATCHED THE

DEWY BEADS OF MOISTURE

GLISTEN ON HIS CORRUGATED

STOMACH I WAS THANKFUL THIS

WAS MY LAST APPOINTMENT OF

THE DAY.

(LAUGHTER)

>> Jon: WITH TREMBLING HANDS

I HELD UP HIS URINE SAMPLE

TO THE LIGHT.

THERE WAS SEDIMENTATION.

ANYWAY, IT ENDS THERE.

MY POINT IS -- COME ON.

WHAT IS HE, ACHILLES, FOR

GOD'S SAKE
