Trump's personal doctor: The president is still clinically obese after this year's exam
President Trump finally completed his annual physical exam which strangely took place over several months, an uncommon practice.
Trump's personal doctor, Sean P. Conley, reported that Trump stands at 6'3" and weighs 244 pounds, giving him a Body Mass Index (BMI) of 30.49. This means he is still clinically obese. This is an increase of one pound from last year.
The results came out just weeks after Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi called Trump "morbidly obese" which is technically accurate.
The president is taking 40 mg of Rosuvastatin, 1 mg of Finasteride, and 81 mg of Aspirin daily according to the release.
After Trump's last annual exams, he was advised to get on a special diet plan, but has since neglected to do so. He even admitted he wasn't trying too hard.
Last year it was reported that Trump never went to the gym and thought walking around the White House and golfing were good enough activities. Comparing this to former President Obama, he preferred to work out at least one hour a day to keep physically and mentally fit for the office.
Some people are speculating these aren't Trump's actual numbers and that he's not as tall or as slim as the White House doctors are saying.
Per Michael Hamilton: "I’m a cardiovascular sonographer, height and weight are so ingrained in my work that after 20 years I can reliably guess my patient’s weight to within 5 lbs and their height within 2 inches. Trump is over 275, no question. He’s obese by any standard. These stats are lies."
In order for Trump not to be considered obese by clinical standards, he would need a BMI of less than 30.
