According to Trumps most recent Medical disclosure from his personal physician he is 6"3' and weighs 236 lbs...great blood pressure and extremely low cholesterol, even though he is incredibly overweight, admittedly doesn't eat right or exercise.
Trump was forced to submit a new medical report because his first one was a joke that he probably drafted himself. Dr. Borenstein lists Trump's height as 6"3' when it is pretty well documented that Trump is 6"2'. You can actually google it. Who knew google tracked that sort of thing (name + "height").
WHY WOULD TRUMP LIE ABOUT HIS HEIGHT? Because at 6"2' and 236 lbs (also a highly dubious number)...Trump would now be classified as obese (which he is), combine that with the fact that he would be the oldest person to become president and it becomes more difficult for his doctor to conclude "In summary, Mr. Trump is in excellent physical health". But that is not what bothers me.
What bothers me is that Trump has no regard for lying on his financial & medical disclosures. He is putting his name and other people's names on documents attesting to statements that he knows are false and misleading. If we can easily verify publicly accessible data, and show that he is lying, why should we trust any of the other results in the report? ie how do we know it was his blood submitted for the cholesterol test? We are left once again having to take Donald Trump's & his surrogates word that the medical results are indeed accurate.
If you are wondering if Trump could in fact be 6"3', I've attached some pictures of Trump standing next to some famous people that also have their height tracked by google. Bill Clinton & Vince McMahon (both 6"2') and Jeb Bush & A-Rod (both 6"3') You tell me what height you think he is. At some point, people need to stop allowing Trump to dictate the terms of the conversation, because at least for now, he is still just an ordinary citizen like the rest of us and is not above the process.
