A Few Pounds of Flesh…


With all this talk about Donald Trump calling a former Miss Universe, Alicia Machado, “Miss Piggy,” among other unflattering names, it got me wondering: How many pounds is the candidate carrying around?

He usually appears wearing a jacket that camouflages any protruding girth, but here’s a photo where the man looks terribly tubby. His doctor recently reported that Trump weighs 236 lbs, making him overweight and on the verge of obesity for his height, 6′ 3″. He’s just five pounds shy of being labeled obese under the body mass index.

Obviously Trump is not interested in setting any kind of healthy example with a sane diet and wise exercise regime. He likes to boast about his unhealthy eating habits as he demonstrates by wolfing down McDonald’s hamburgers and buckets of KFC friend chicken. “I work out on occasion…as little as possible,” he said at a 1997 news conference during which he mocked the weight of reporters.

Yes, there are heavier issues to discuss during this election season, but I couldn’t resist weighing in…
