The Girther Movement: Many People Don’t Believe the President Is Only 239 Pounds

On Tuesday, White House doctor Ronny Jackson, the white doctor with the inherently black name, announced that the president had the hands of a Grecian god and the balls of a Spanish bull. Seriously, Dr. Jackson proclaimed that the only ailment troubling the KFC-fingered president was high cholesterol, and he added that Donald Trump could stand to lose a few pounds. He also claimed that the president was 6 feet 3 inches and weighed 239 pounds.


Record scratch.

Social media immediately called bullshit, and thus the girther movement was born. Girthers want the president to show his weight certificate. They don’t believe that a man who admittedly eats like a rhino that broke out of the zoo and was homeless for a few weeks only weighs 239 pounds. They also don’t believe that the president is 6 feet 3, so they took to the internet to voice their disdain for President Wiggles von HateHandles and the good, black-named Dr. Jackson.


Several on Twitter noted that the president’s height on his first physical was 6 feet 2 inches, and that by adding an inch to the president’s height, he goes from being obese to being merely overweight.

I’m joining the girther movement. Who’s with me?

Team Girther. I’m 6-1 and about 235, and say no way he has a size 36 waist, or even a 38. Also, people were telling me about muscle mass, blah blah blah. He’d had to have absolutely NO muscle mass to be 239 with that height and body. Also...

So at 71, this fat fuck is still growing? I knew he was a big baby but... c’mon.
