Anyway, I have a hard time believing that Trump is 243 pounds. He looks easily over 300. Also, he clearly has joint issues with his elbows and shoulders; they can barely bend.
So how do we handle it, now that we have so many female candidates?

Can we call THEM fat slobs, when they are overweight?

It feels wrong. At the same time, shielding them from this gives them an unfair advantage.

Not at all. The Obamas have consistently always taken the high road, and don't wallow in everyday mudslinging. The Obamas have too much class and dignity for that.

Unsurprisingly, there are more than a few people in this thread who not only refuse to condemn what Yang said, but then go beyond, further confirming and revealing the hypocrisy and phoniness of those on the left who claim to have a problem with President Trump's name calling.

sorry, the description fits, what's odd is that you would choose to draw attention to it

It's not hypocritical. It's called the Left giving the Right a taste of its own medicine, and it's long overdue.

He may have been aiming for insulting Trump but he also insulted more than half the population, which is overweight. Many already feel bad about that, and too embarrassed to go to a gym full of people like Yang who will ridicule them. He clearly has a superiority complex, as I had suspected, and seems to fit with the stereotype he has chosen to assign to himself. Maybe as president he would take away benefits from lesser fat people and those who are not good at math. But everyone gets a whole 1k so that makes it all fine.

Just what we need...another classless presidential candidate, this time from the other side of the aisle.
