Teump is such a role model: compassionate, diligent, intelligent, mature, and obese.

That's some interesting world news to be on Japan Today.

So Trump gained a few pounds. Fear not, he also gained a few inches in height!!!

Plus, his blood pressure is 118? Yeah sure.

Come on, WH, release the true girth certificates.

OK this isn't really newsworthy. I'll give this one to Trump fans as being lite on informational value and heavy on negative impressions.

118 over 80?! KEEP EATING.

Needs more hamberders washed down with covfefe.

Not a problem, prison food will take that off in no time.....

So just to confirm - laughing at fat acceptance movements and calling out those who body shame (specifically towards obese people) is not okay. Yet it's okay to continuously snicker and laugh at the physical appearance of America's president.

(Note: I am not defending trump. Humour at the expense of fat acceptance or any topic is great, funny jokes and comments will always be funny - It's just annoying to see double standards strive).

Also - mentioned above ... news worthy?

Obese? A tactic to remain in the WH from 2021 to 2025?

Some argue that obesity should be treated like smoking. Both are very unhealthy and place avoidable burdens on healthcare systems.

It is not okay to be obese. Telling people it’s okay to be obese seems stupid.

It's counter-productive. It's never good to be obese. We should not be normalizing it. That doesn't mean we need to body shame, but at the very least we should not be saying it's normal and ok. While it may be normal in this day and age, it's not historically normal, nor is it ok for your health.

That said, I feel for the obese. They got that way for a reason - and often that reason is that no one ever taught them how to eat healthy and how to exercise in a maintainable manner.

Fat shaming bad.

I’m still trying to figure out how this is news, I mean the guy is nowhere as big as William Taft was. Wish these liberal pundits would relax. But given his family history of good genes, he should live his life the way he wants, the Democrats give him a great workout.

Fat-shaming is not ok, unless you are a republican? Good to know.

We all know people who have been obese their entire lives. It doesn't matter what they eat or don't eat. Their bodies store fat very efficiently and gets better at it over the decades.

I'm still trying to figure out how "golf" is considered a sport. Just go for a brisk walk toting some stuff on a wheeled cart and call that "a sport" too.

Also, President Trump needs some alcohol, most definitely.

bass4funk: "I’m still trying to figure out how this is news,"

We all know you'd be congratulating and bragging if he were not in the shape of most Americans.

"Wish these liberal pundits would relax."

No one asked you to get up in arms about this.

"But given his family history of good genes, he should live his life the way he wants, the Democrats give him a great workout."

Yeah, they give him a workout like giving a monkey a typewriter -- and you honestly believe his tweets are Shakespeare.
