Here's the more likely scenario: Trump and his team paid a doctor to run tests on him and say that he's "ultra-fit" which is exactly what Trump would call himself. Even better, they found a doctor that used to be Obama's doctor (like that means anything, but hey, right wingers like QO will eat it up!). So, the doctor takes his $100k (or whatever) and releases a statement that he's ultra fit. OMG! Science! Right wingers like QO eat it up and say things like he's "medically diagnosed as ultra-fit, and passes cognitive tests with flying colors" Then people on the left will post pictures of him being fat on a golf course and fat shame him similar to the fat shaming that they oh-so-despise when others do.
Meanwhile, there's millions of (normal) people, like me, who just want to hear about 90 seconds of ACTUAL news and see what is going on in the country. Yet, we have to sift through the dozens of news sites' front pages that ask, "is Trump in good shape?" like that fucking matters?? just to get to an article at the bottom corner of the website that shows actual news.
And then, tomorrow, we wake up to a whole new Trump story, rinse, wash, repeat. Love this country!
I think things hit a new low when everyone started posting pictures of him next to pro athletes who share his height and listed weight. Anyone who knows even the smallest bit about athletic training and exercise should know that two people can be the same height and weight, but look super-different if one is an elite athlete whose entire day revolves around conditioning and lifting weights and the other is a tub of jello whose idea of exercise is walking from his cart to his golf ball and back again and angrily pounding his fingers against his Twitter app on the phone. But there you have it: People posting pictures of him side-by-side with a pro athlete who is all muscle and acting completely incredulous.
I mean, there is some humor in the dude at the center of the moronic birther movement getting mocked by a so-called "girther" movement, but it's the sort of stupid waste of time that really should be used in a more productive manner.
