But instead of his birthplace, 45 is now being accused of lying about something much more fitting: his waistline!
The results of Trump’s recent physical examination were published this week, and many critics noticed a few red flags. Specifically, his listed height and weight.
According to the official White House report, President Truffle stands at 75 inches (6’3) and weighs a tight 239 lbs.
Funny, right? The internet agreed… and so began the #Girther movement.
Supporters of the movement called B.S. on the medical report, postulating that Trump — whose diet supposedly consists of KFC, McDonald’s, and chocolate cake — is both shorter and heavier than the exam suggests. They even provided photographic evidence comparing him to people who are actually 6’3.
Others noted that Dr. Ronny Jackson‘s measurements put Trump’s BMI at 29.9 — just under being considered obese. Can Dr. Ronny do our next physical too, plz?
See what believers of the #girther movement are saying (below).
For the record, @realDonaldTrump said he was 74 inches in 2012. Now his doctor says he’s 75 inches. And that one inch makes is BMI “overweight” not “obese.” I’m a #girther because old men don’t GROW an inch! pic.twitter.com/ehNxF9PjPL

As long as Mueller puts 239 lbs. of Trump in jail, we don’t care what he does with the other 50.

I will give 100 thousand dollars to Trump’s favorite charity if he will step on an accurate scale with an impartial medical professional, okayed by both of us. For real. #Girther #GirtherMovement

So Dr. Ronny Jackson says Trump is 6′ 3″ & 239lbs
That makes his BMI 29.9
These are the BMI classifications
Normal weight: BMI is 18.5 to 24.9
Overweight: BMI is 25 to 29.9
Obese: BMI is 30 or more
Seems to me like they lied just enough so Trump wouldn’t be considered obese.├░┼╕┬ñΓÇ¥

It’s one thing to question Trump’s physical report, but in no way should he be body shamed!
What do YOU think of the #Girther movement??
