I guess liberals are just adjusting their platform on the fly because Nasty Nancy Pelosi decided that it was perfectly acceptable to fat-shame people again as she decided to call President Trump "morbidly obese".
Pelosi told Anderson Cooper last week, “As far as the president is concerned, he’s our president and I would rather he not be taking something that has not been approved by the scientists, especially in his age group and in his, shall we say, weight group, morbidly obese, they say. So I think it’s not a good idea.”
What made this so great though is that she actually got called out by fact-checkers on her statement. But not just any fact-checkers, left-leaning fact-checkers, because the fact is that the President is not morbidly obese.
Pelosi likely knew that, she just wanted to be a nasty wench because that's the type of person that she is.
Officially, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention does not define the threshold needed for someone to be considered “morbidly obese.” Instead, the CDC says that “Class 3” obesity, sometimes categorized as “extreme” or “severe” obesity, is defined as having a body-mass index, or BMI, of 40 or higher. Other medical sources list a definition of “morbidly obese” as equivalent to a BMI of 40 or higher.
Some available data about Trump comes from his most recent periodic physical exam. In a 2019 memo, Trump’s physician Dr. Sean Conley said Trump was 6 feet, 3 inches tall and 243 pounds. …
Officially, Trump’s height and weight would correlate to a BMI of 30.1, just a bit over the 30.0 level to be considered obese — the lowest of three levels. That is not high enough to count as Class 3 obesity.
In order for President Trump to be classified as morbidly obese, he would need to weigh at least 319 pounds and have a BMI of 40.
I love how President Trump didn't let it bother him, the only thing that he had to say about it was, “I don’t respond to her, I think she’s a waste of time.”
