If you could take that fat from around his middle and turn it into muscle on his arms, legs and chest, he would probably weigh 250, and look like he lost weight.
That's not only a weak rationalization, it's almost a de facto
admission that Trump is overly fat. To me it's not so much his weight as it is the fact that he's put on so much of it since he took office (oh my God, Saturday will be one year). My guess is he's eating from stress, as many children do, and the results could be dangerous. Extreme job stress and carrying extra tonnage are two of the prime factors for deadly cardiovascular events.
