Healthy at any size, unless your last name is Trump.
The furor over Donald Trump’s medical records reached a fever pitch this past week with Mr. Trump’s appearance on “The Dr. Oz Show.”
Several clips of the pre-taped appearance were released, with Mr. Trump and Dr.Oz discussing his overweight status.
At 6’3 and 236 lbs, he is considered “slightly overweight” while a BMI of 29.5. 30 is considered obese.
As expected, liberals have had a field day with this revelation.
Gresh Kuntzman of the New York Daily News writes:
So, Fat Donald, enjoy another bucket of Kentucky Fried Chicken in your private jet, you corpulent monument to unhealthiness. Perhaps you are the one who needs a body double, you puffy mound of conspiracy-mouthing flab.
Do you agree? Tweet this story with the hashtag #fatdonald or #donaldplump.
How dare he. Kuntzman’s blatant thin privilege is just nauseating to read.
The fatphobia doesn’t end there.
Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid delivered a revolting rant on Mr. Trump’s weight as well.
Take a look at this character who’s running for President. He complains her health. What does he do, he’s 70 years old. He’s not slim and trim. He brags about eating fast food every day. Look at his health a little bit. Also, you’ve all been unfair to Hillary.
First of all, assuming the gender identification? Come on Harry, it’s 2016.
Healthy does not look like what the fatphobic media tries to shove down your throat, Mr. Reid. I think a lecture by “one of the nation’s leading experts and lecturers on fat discrimination and body image” Virgie Tovar is in order.
Supporting American fast-food chains? Mr. Trump is already creating jobs, and he’s not even President.
Does Harry Reid hate America? If he displays this much contempt for overweight individuals, the answer is yes.
Some more highlights of the body shaming left:
Thank goodness Sam Stein of The Huffington Post calls the deplorable Democrats out.
