Let's not forget Trump calling Jerry Nadler "Fat Jerry".

Ugh really?

Yang seemed like a reasonable and mature person, too.

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

He is fat. But I wouldn't hold that against him.
Dollars to donuts (lots of donuts) he is obese by definition. I say he's 270 or above.

But who cares? If he was a good human being...or a human being at all....I'd have no problem.

An overweight male deserves criticism for their appearance?

Why aren’t fat men as brave as fat women??
Because it's a more extreme insult for women. Women's value is primarily based on their beauty and youth, which are largely out of their control. Insult that, and you're basically telling them that they're worthless wastes of existence and that's all they'll ever be.

Men's value is based on many different variables, most of which can be developed and changed. Insulting their looks stings, but it's only a small part of who they are, so it's not as fatal a hit to their value as humans. Plus, unlike women, it's still possible for them to stay or become more attractive as they age.

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.

Yeah, and Hillary was such an athletic specimen. And Creepy Joe too for that matter.

All of that is outdated sexist thinking. People have insulted my looks, big deal, it is often out of their own insecurity. I would never base my value on looks or want to be around those who do.

Talking Andrew Yang Calls President Trump "Fat" and a "Slob"

And he's right on both counts.

See for yourself.

Yang is a total piece of garbage for talking about the President that way.

I must assume that you think Trump is 1000X the same garbage then.....because we could fill many pages with his insults to others......

Or didn't you hear them?

Do you like "blood coming out of their whatever" or "small weiner" types of insults.......or are you more "that face" type of a dude?

Or, do you prefer insulting war casualties and POWs? Maybe your preference is for insults to entire groups of people...millions of them??

It's beyond hypocrisy for anyone who approves of the massive forests in their own eyes to note a sawdust speck in another.

I'm not sure how the other Candidates this year are going to deal with the 8th grader....the fat one. Some will probably insult him back.....some will try other methods.

But I am sure of this. A large portion of Trump supporters will be cheering his insults on.
