Leave it to a Trump-supporting Florida doctor to just go ahead and say out loud what a good percentage of folks are already thinking – if you’re a man who supports Hillary Clinton, you probably need to have your testosterone checked.
And the doc didn’t say this, but while you’re at it, might as well go ahead and turn in your ‘man card.’
Dr. Dareld Morris of Morris Medical and Weight Loss Center in Fort Myers, Florida, is under some serious fire for a radio commercial promoting his business by taking a humorous jab at male Hillary supporters.
In the ad, Dr. Morris says, “Most are not aware of the effect low T can have on your mental state. For instance your ability to focus and think clearly. As a community service, for any guys out there that are thinking of voting for Hillary, I want to offer you a free testosterone test. Let’s see if we can help.”

Predictably, not everyone is laughing. “I honestly feel like he’s a pinhead for saying that. Just because a man is voting for a woman, there shouldn’t be anything wrong with it. It’s sexist,” Tedazia Vinders told NBC-2. Tashara Brown told the station that businesses “shouldn’t mix business with politics.”
For his part, Dr. Morris told NBC-2 that he “leans right” and wanted to promote his practice and make a humorous political statement at the same time. The ad is also an “experiment,” he says, to see if there is a correlation between one’s health and political views.
“I’m actually voting for Donald Trump, so I think it’s even more funny.”
The doctor said he’s received calls from both sides who like the ad and find it humorous.
