As you might imagine, Trump is being mocked mercilessly on Twitter this morning for the blatant lie that he weighs 239 pounds. (If you read Fire and Fury, you know that Trump says he's taller than he is to pretend he's not in the obese range.)
Hey, we all struggle with our weight! But f he'd ever shown one ounce of humanity toward anyone else, I wouldn't be enjoying this so much:

Dr. Ronny Jackson claimed Trump is 6' 3" weighs 239 pounds.
For comparison, meet Latavius Murray, running back for the Minnesota Vikings.
He's 6' 3", 235 pounds.
I think Ronny fibbed. pic.twitter.com/pC7kYeLmDS

When I say Trump obviously weighs more than 239 lbs, it's not to shame his weight. It's to shame him for lying. Blatantly. Obviously. Transparently. THAT is the issue. Not body-shaming. Lying. Don't lose sight of that. And don't get distracted from that.

POTUS doctor: “POTUS is 6’3” and weighs 239 lbs”.
What? No way he’s under 260! I’m starting a new movement: GIRTHER movement!! Retweet if you believe POTUS is well above 239. #GIRTHER.

If this is what 239 pounds looks like, I have only one question: when did the medical profession start using hexadecimal notation? #TheResistance #FBR #WednesdayWisdom @docrocktex26 https://t.co/pn57juHgNv

Conservatives are angry because we're talking about Trump's lie about his weight. They don't like the #Girthermovement. They say we're body shaming. I'm just calling him out as a liar and throwing his ridiculous "birther" movement back in his face. This is whose angry at us... pic.twitter.com/JiF0fjNsyZ

Honestly, as someone who has always struggled with her weight, I know the #GirtherMovement is super mean spirited, hurtful and unnecessary but I don’t care. That horrid, sad excuse for a man has brought this all on himself. And some of those tweets are very, very funny. #GIRTHER
