Well, even though the US President’s physician has given him a clean bill of health, people, it seems, are not buying it.
While Donald Trump was officially revealed to be overweight after the results of his physical were released on Tuesday.
But already some are questioning whether his true weight was provided following the examination, with some claiming the president must be heavier than his official 239 pounds weight.
Even though 239lb must be pretty good for a man who is 6ft 3in tall, doesn’t exercise and is routinely pictured eating fast food, but people are calling his weight into question on Twitter under the ‘#Girther movement’.
Referencing Trump's old calls for his predecessor Barack Obama to release his birth certificate, dubbed the birther movement, critics of the president came up with a new hashtag - the girther movement.
Guardians of the Galaxy director James Gunn has already offered to donate $100,000 to a charity of Trump's choice if he steps on a scale.
Ronny Jackson, the US Navy Doctor who performed Trump’s check-up said that the US President’s blood pressure was 122 over 74 and cholesterol was 223, which is higher than recommended. Trump was 70 when he took office on January 20, 2017, making him the oldest person ever elected to the presidency.
However, on Twitter, it is all about the girther movement.
Some want to know his exact weight.
Petition to make Trump release the long-form girth certificate. #girther— Eric D. Snider (@EricDSnider) January 16, 2018
And there were those who seriously questioned his diet choices and the choice of words Jackson used,
Even more bullshit than the #girther thing is trying to get me to believe the President of the United States, one of the most stressful jobs in the world, has a BP of 122/74 while drinking a pony keg of diet coke and eating McDonalds every day.— Matt (@Buekish) January 16, 2018
Kuntzman made everyone realise that Trump's height has apparently grown an inch as well!
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— Gersh Kuntzman (@GershKuntzman) January 16, 2018
And one pointed out the fact that there is something shady in the height as well.
Dennis Perkins drew some very questionable comparisons,
And Susan Hunt said that everyone is now lining up to be weighed by Ronny Jackson.
And then, there were those who simply questioned Trump's cabinet and what they release.
According to Jackson, Trump’s heart exam was normal, with regular rhythm and no abnormal sounds.
The 71-year-old president performed ‘exceedingly well’ on cognitive screening, which is not standard but was requested by Trump. The doctor said he had ‘absolutely no concerns’ about Trump’s cognitive abilities.
He speculated that Trump requested the exam in an attempt to beat back the narrative of the past few weeks that he is mentally unfit for office....
