That's hilarious. It also says he's 6'3"--although he's visibly shorter than various people who are under 6'3" while he's wearing lifts in his shoes.

This article is a great example of what are called blue lies. Saying something that everyone knows (and doesn't believe) is a lie is, as Orwell pointed out, the greatest performance of loyalty. People forget that's what he meant by blackwhite: "the ability to believe that black is white, and more, to know that black is white, and to forget that one has ever believed the contrary."

Yeah, he's 6'1" at best and 270 at least.

That's a BMI of 35.6, which is morbidly obese.

And even if he were JUST obese, he's a morbid piece of shiat, so it still fits.

His whole premise is based on the fact that trump is telling the truth about his weight.

There is 0% chance of that being true.

Man, Cilizza has had a horrible week. Maybe step away from the keyboard there, pal, and stop saying things when they crop up in the 'ol noggin.

Which is not Donald Trump, at least according to the White House physician. In his February 2019 annual physical, Trump, who is 6'3", tipped the scales at 243 pounds.

Dammit!!! Meant to add that if Trump is 6'3" and 243, then I'm Batman!!  I'm 6' and 250 myself. There's no way that Trump's measurements are anywhere near this.  Chris Cillizza needs to stop peddling bullshiat.

Chris Chillizza is a useless pile of shiat, has been from day 1. He's single-handledly tanking any relevance CNN might have ever had in the realm of political commentary with his painful grasping "both sides" editorial decisions. I hope history is cruel to his legacy at the organization, his editorial style is textbook spineless bottom-feeding.

If he's 6'1" (which I believe) I'm thinking he's gotta be over 300

He's a fat fark.  Doesn't exercise, eats junk food all day, sits on his ass for 5-6 hours watching Fox News Channel, can't walk further than 10 yards without taking a golf cart.

I need to lose like 50 lbs and my doctor happily calls me morbidly obese to shame me into losing weight. It's kinda working. I'm trying.

I don't look like that fat f*cking piece of sh*t. He is absolutely morbidly obese.

Morbid or not, he'll always be a fat coont.

As a fat ass (slight less fat that last year but still fat) I can conclusively state he's a fat ass.

Cillizza has single-handedly, and consistently destroyed CNN's credibility.  His brain is mush.  If they could just make him disappear, it would be a fairly strong reporting agency (outside of the obsession with plane crashes).

I don't hang around the fittest group of people in the world, but if Trump were in that group, he'd be known as the fat one.

Keep it in the news all you Streisands. It can only help your cause.

They just never learn when to shut up and let it go away quietly.

Funny how the radical, ultra-leftist, Trump-hating media always writes "articles" with the assumption that Trump is telling the truth.

Chris Cillizza is a farking joke.

Author has missed the point entirely. I think Pelosi and other Dems have had it with Trump's repeated lies about Obama (and everything else), and her statement was a salvo. You want to keep talking, fat boy? We can talk, too.

She isn't wrong, he is obese. And he knows he is obese. He wants his cult members to believe otherwise, and I would wager that Pelosi calling him fat really pisses him off. Which, in turn, makes me happy, and I hope Pelosi keeps it up.

I could be wrong, but I don't think Trump has directly responded to her yet? So maybe he got the message.

Trudeau is 6-2, and Trump wears lifts in his shoes (which is why he always looks like he's about to tip over). After three and a half years, maybe accepting Trump's word on anything would be ill advised, Chris.

Of all the delusions right wingers believe, depicting Trump's likeness as buff and fit is probably the most hilarious.

Both Ben Garrison and Jon McNaughton do this shiat.  Garrison's is particularly hilarious; if that Trump was the real thing, he'd be pretty ripped.

But, in order to deliberately portray him that way, you have to acknowledge the opposite is true, so they are keenly aware that he's a raging tub of shiat.

The fact that he easily fits into Chris Christy's hand me downs is all you need to know about his weight.

This is gonna be another one of those things, isn't it...? Like when the media asked "is it right to boo the president," only dumber.

Tell Me How My Blog Tastes: Man, Cilizza has had a horrible week. Maybe step away from the keyboard there, pal, and stop saying things when they crop up in the 'ol noggin.


But he is paid at least 6 figures a year to have the shiattiest takes in the media. It is hard work.

Also these analysis is missing factoring in Trump's muscle mass; highly accurate life drawings by Ben Harrison show that Trump is surprisingly toned for a politician unlike that scrawny beanpole Obama.

In this case calling the President morbidly obese isn't meant as an insult, for which Trump's weight is the furthest thing he should feel shame for compared to the intentional harm he's committed as an overall poor excuse for a human in general, as much as it's a statement of fact that he is at a much higher risk for the potential side effects of a medication that he has no reason to take.

But also yo President is so fat he has more chins than we have confirmed COVID19 deaths

My oldest son has Prader-Willi Syndrome, which lends itself to morbid obesity.  Sam is 5'7" and #161.  He fights obesity daily with an hour on the treadmill

The orange menace is a fat, lazy fark and probably fits the criteria of morbidly obese as defined by PWSA-USA

That's just perspective. Trudeau is standing slightly in front of Trump so he looks talle....errr

Trump weighs 239? Hahahahahaha.


I'd believe 339.  My brothers a little over 6 foot and weighs about 340, he looks about as heavy as trump does.  Definitely the same ballpark.

Melania is supposed to be 5'-11", seems she's a little shorter than Trudeau still even in heels and is almost the same height in them as Trump.

Only way she gets that tall relative to Trump wearing shoes is if she's in 5"+ heels.

You have to watch Pelosi's clip though.  It's pretty obvious she meant it as a dig, which somewhat explains the reaction.

But I agree, it's pretty dismal.  Honestly it wouldn't even be news if people weren't trying to convince you he isn't indeed a raging fat-ass.

This is the person that deserves getting beat up in school. "Teacher, you accidentally handed us the answer key for our test!"

This kind of writing is so stupidly pointless and reeks of, "See Republicans, I'm not fake news! I make Trump not look fat, love me?!"  The lengths he goes to try to pick apart at a fat joke being made at Trump by being technical?  I bet he loves old stand up comedy. "Well technically they can't make the whole plane out of the black box for the following reasons, and airline food is bad for keeping cost down and storage..."

How hard did Chris dog the birthers for the Kenya claims? Is Rosie O'Donnell a literal k-9? When trump says something is the greatest or the worst, are we given a full comparison of all options and their measurable criteria? Out of all the BS spouted this week alone and the fudging of COVID numbers, the firing of an IG for looking at Pompeo, the removal of Florida's COVID tracking website author to fudge numbers... we are going to shake a finger at Pelosi for saying Trump is 'morbidly' obese.

Guess what, Trump lies his ass off. He's not 6'3, he's sure as hell not under 250, and he's mostly bald and on more speed than the MLB pitchers took in the 70s.  Hey Chris, get Trump to step on a scale and get his height measured on live TV and then make your argument.

I swear CNN is like the news organization that smears it's own feces on the wall and wants you to be proud. I regard Chris like one shade less worse than a MAGAt.

Not quite 6' 1'' without lifts and 270 - 275 before dinner is a generous assessment

And you believe anyone in trump's orbit could ever tell the truth about anybody?
His last doctor was a drunken swabby who was/is a f*cking ollie north level liar.  Why would any other doctor say something different?
