the Growing Girther movement

Post by veya_victaous on Wed Jan 17, 2018 10:53 pm

A NEW social media “movement” demanding Donald Trump step on the scales live on TV is gaining momentum.

It comes after White House doctor Ronny Jackson found the US President to be 190 centimetres, weighing 107 kilograms, putting him in the overweight category, reports The Sun.

But hundreds of people tweeting with the #GirtherMovement hashtag are accusing the US president, 71, of lying about his weight.

The term is a play on the “birther” movement spawned by Mr Trump in 2011, when he repeatedly called for then-President Barack Obama to show his birth certificate. Mr Trump alleged he was born in Kenya and not eligible to lead the country.

Calls for him to reveal his weight more transparently are being led by Guardians of the Galaxy director James Gunn, whose offered to cough up USD$100,000 (A$140,000) to Mr Trump’s favourite charity if he complies.

He said: “I will give 100 thousand dollars to Trump’s favourite charity if he will step on an accurate scale with an impartial medical professional, okayed by both of us. For real.”

Gunn, 51, shared several photos of Mr Trump next to much slimmer men — often athletes — who are known to weight around 100kg or less.

One example was Los Angeles-based baseball player Albert Pujol, who Gunn said was also 190cm and 108kg.

Several others followed suit, comparing the 45th president who allegedly has a penchant for McDonald’s, to the likes of New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady.


One cheeky user even put him next to a ripped Colin Kaepernick, the former San Francisco 49ers player who Mr Trump criticised for kneeling during the national anthem.

Mr Trump’s body mass index (BMI) of 29.9 put him in the overweight category — and on the brink of obese — for his alleged height at 190cm.

He is known to enjoy high-fat foods like fried chicken, hamburgers and steak — and while he plays golf, he does not have a daily exercise routine.

Mr Trump takes Crestor for his cholesterol, a low-dose aspirin for heart attack prevention, Propecia to treat male-pattern baldness and antibiotics for rosacea.

I'm guessing that weight is about right for him. He's an old guy with very little muscle. Bony arm and bony legs.
