Photos were posted comparing Trump, at a purported 6 – 3, to his predecessor, Barack Obama, who was listed at 6-1. Jackson, who has been the lead White House doctor since 2013 and oversaw two of Obama’s physicals, told media members Tuesday that 12 other doctors consulted on Trump ’s examination, which lasted more than three hours.
Before he spoke, White House press secretary Sarah Fuckable Sanders read a letter from former longtime White House physician Richard J. Tube, who trained Jackson and vouched for his integrity. Of course, sports fans are often very well-versed in athletes’ heights and weights, and they are aware that those listed numbers don’t always precisely correlate with reality.
In general, though, Jackson was upbeat about Trump ’s physical condition, prompting questions about how a septuagenarian man with such seemingly poor habits, including little apparent exercise apart from golfing (while driving in carts) and an affinity for greasy fast food, could fare so well in a thorough examination. Scenes from Trump ’s second six months in office Police officers applaud a line by U.S. President Donald Trump ® as he delivers remarks about his proposed U.S. government effort against the street gang Mara Salvatrucha, or MS-13, to a gathering of federal, state and local law enforcement officials at the Long Island University campus in Brentwood, New York, U.S. July 28, 2017.
President DonaldTrump's latest medical report from the White House listed him in at 6' 3 and 239 pounds. If it had listed him just one inch shorter, his BMI would have come in at 30.7, meaning all the newspapers the next day would report him as obese.
Trump's own driver's license issued in 2012 showed his height as 6'2”, but even that may not be correct. Canada Prime Minister Justin Trudeau is 6'2”, and Trump is shorter than I.
Former President Barack Obama is 6'1” and when Trump was standing next to him at the official change of command ceremony on inauguration day, they pretty much look the same height. President Trump even has something in common with North Korean dictator Kim Jong-un, which is why we think he likes him so much.
The lie was even coordinated by his White House doctor, who is supposed to tell the truth even if Trump won't. If Trump got his own health records edited in order to avoid embarrassment in the papers, then you know they will go to greater lengths to cover-up much more serious matters.
It's also our understanding that older men don't suddenly go through growth spurts in late age. He eats bacon and eggs for breakfast and indulges in junk foods for lunch and dinner.
Jo Travels, a dietitian and author of The Low-Fad Diet, says that bacon is a processed pork product, and it should be avoided as it increases the risk of cancer. Considering his absolute love for junk food and lack of exercise, one would say it would be quite hard for Donald Trump to lose that much weight so easily.
During the interview with Dr. Mehmet Oz, Trump handed over a paper from his gastroenterologist for the doctor to read aloud. Trump ’s diet is admittedly ridden with fast food as he is constantly traveling, though he takes statins to lower cholesterol.
He noted that he gets in his exercise with rounds of golf, but said his presidential campaign held him back from the green. Going by audience members’ statements, it seems as if Trump avoided any specifics when it came to his health, and instead aimed to paint a picture that all was okay and no one had anything to worry about.
Your height is literally one of the many factors that help decide whether you’re fit for office. And in an uncomfortable turn of events, Donald Trump may have just been caught fibbing about his height as he innocently stood next to Canada’s Prime Minister Justin Trudeau.
At least, that figure is according to Trump ’s physical exam results which were released in January this year by the White House doctor. Other than his lack of exercise, love of junk food and obsession with Diet Coke, Trump was declared to be overall in “excellent health”.
Now, critics are suggesting Trump overestimated his height so his Body Mass Index would be conveniently classified as “overweight”, not “obese”. Being a smidgen shorter than 6 3 would give him a BMI of more than 30, putting him in the “obese” category.
Here’s where it gets even more confusing: Trump ’s New York driver’s license stated he was 62. This led to calls for Trump to publish his own health records, before he released a mere five-paragraph letter in November 2016 from his long-term doctor concluding simply that Trump was in terrific physical health.
This prompted Barron’s disappearance from the public eye and a statement from the White House that read, “It is a longstanding tradition that the children of presidents are afforded the opportunity to grow up outside the political spotlight. In 2019, Prof. Pamela Harlan made a statement about Trump ’s son during the impeachment trial.
