Epic mistake by the Yang campaign and although maybe he's already given up, this killed any chance he had. Making fun of an opponent for being fat just alienates a huge percentage of your own potential voters who are self conscious about their weight. No way an experienced public figure would make that mistake.

Trump's funeral will be acknowledged around the world with people singing and dancing in delight. Trump's funeral will be a very happy occasion. Have another burger mr president.

If the president has been checked out with normal cholesterol levels, not pre diabetic and no high blood pressure, then he should just go ahead and eat all the fattening food he wants. A lot of other people with their bellies sticking out can't say the same.

Yes, three of his voters have already switched candidates. The other two seem to be holding tight though.

I say Trump being a public figure is open to ridicule for what he says but if the Left really wants to project their PC manners as they demand us all to then his weight and looks should be off limits but then again they can't help themselves.



Michelle O once said "when they go low we go high" what a joke.
They went high in 2016 and lost with Trump (Lock her up) going low. His mocking a disabled reporter is still worse than someone pointing out the truth that Trump is a fat slob.

Yang called Trump a "fat slob," so let's not candy-arse around here, as if he called him fat--and a slob. Therefore, we have another double standard, because I can only imagine the response if Yang had said that about a woman.

Despite the fact that Trump is overweight, Yang's comments said more about him and his failing campaign, than they did about Trump.

And the irony of Yang calling Trump a fat slob and saying, "What does that guy weigh, 280?"--while HE was eating his way through a state fair was priceless. Not fer nothin', but Trump was apparently able to eat like a stevedore without gaining weight when he was Yang's age--30 years ago--too.

They might? He was in Arrested Development, which is more recent than Happy Days. Who knows. It is perpetually weird to hear things like my beloved 80s music on oldies stations. They are up to the 90s and almost 00s on there now, too. Sigh.

Right? I put on the Classic Rock station the other day, and they were playing Green Day and Nirvana.

And donít get me wrong, I appreciate those bands from my 20s. I loved Nirvana, and even saw them live, but that is not what I had in mind when I put on the Classic Rock station.

Yang is not wrong, though. Trump has gained quite a bit of weight since taking office. Wearing his ties really long to cover his fat belly is no longer working.

Stomach fat is the most unhealthy place to have excess weight, especially for a man his age.

Is it really so impossible to have a presidential candidate who DOESN'T act like a child?


Reasonable and mature? Sure. He has zero traction or momentum, however.


In the alleged words of Bill Shakespeare: Tempt not a desperate man...

Is the President a total piece of garbage for calling Jerry Nadler "Fat Jerry", then, as well?
