Donald Trump’s recent stint in Fulton County Jail has left the internet buzzing, but not for the reasons you might think. The former President’s self-reported weight and height have sparked a wave of skepticism, especially on social media platforms like X, formerly known as Twitter.
According to jail records, Trump now weighs 215 pounds and stands at 6 feet 3 inches. This is a significant change from his last known measurements, which had him at 240 pounds and 6 feet 2 inches. Critics, including Democratic strategist Sawyer Hackett and Hollywood filmmaker Rob Reiner, have openly questioned the accuracy of these numbers.
“I don’t believe those numbers for a second,” Hackett tweeted. “Trump has a long history of lying about his height and weight.”
Reiner was even more blunt. “Trump is a pathological liar,” he said. “There’s no way he’s 6 feet 3 inches and 215 pounds.”
Even sports analysts have joined the debate, comparing Trump’s stats to those of star athletes like Larry Fitzgerald and Lamar Jackson. The visual disparity between Trump and these athletes has only fueled the skepticism.
“Trump is much shorter than Fitzgerald, who is listed at 6 feet 3 inches,” said ESPN analyst Stephen A. Smith. “There’s no way he’s the same height.”
So, is Trump lying about his weight and height? It’s impossible to say for sure. However, the level of scrutiny and skepticism that his numbers have generated suggests that many people are not convinced.
In the absence of any concrete evidence, it’s up to each individual to decide whether or not they believe Trump’s claims. However, one thing is for sure: the debate over Trump’s weight and height is likely to continue for some time to come.
