Cardiologist: Trump Looks Like "Morgan Spurlock At the End of Super Size Me"

During the 2016 presidential campaign, "Cosmopolitan" chronicled 15 times Trump had shamed women and men for their body size or shape. As with many aspects of Trump's life, apparently, what he was criticizing in others was an issue for himself. The "Washington Post" asked five experts at body size estimation to size up Trump. Their consensus, not surprisingly, was that Trump overstated his height and understated his weight. In September 2016 Trump claimed to be 6 feet 3 inches tall and weigh 236 pounds. Photo comparisons to other public figures of known height clearly demonstrated that Trump is closer to 6 feet even. (The clearest evidence of this is a photo showing Trump several inches shorter than NFL player Mark Sanchez, who is 6 feet 2 inches tall.) Ray De Frates, a retired carnival performer who guessed people's weight, age, and birth month, pegged Trump's weight at between 252 and 255 pounds. That yields a body mass index greater than 32, which is well into the "obese" range.

For cardiologist Dean Ornish, however, it was not Trump's weight so much as his appearance that was cause for concern.

Even more important than Donald Trump’s weight is how unhealthy he looks. I was at the debate last week at Hofstra [University] and had the chance to see him in person. He has said on many occasions that he is on a fast-food diet of burgers and fried chicken and French fries, and he looked like it — unhealthy complexion, puffy, pasty skin, sweating a lot.

He looked like Morgan Spurlock at the end of 'Super Size Me.'”
