The horror! Donald Trump’s driver’s license shows he lied about his height
It looks as if the left has created a “birther” controversy of its own. I was not sure if this story was a spoof or not but it appears not to be sarcasm. In a Politico story entitled, get this, “Trump’s driver’s license casts doubt on height claims” the left-leaning website–which was revealed to be submitting stories to Hillary Clinton for approval before publishing them during the campaign–has learned that Donald Trump is actually an inch shorter than he claims to be.
Here is the shocking revelation:
Donald Trump and his doctor claim he’s 6-foot-3, but his New York driver’s license says he’s actually an inch shorter.
A copy of Trump’s license, obtained by POLITICO through an open-records request, lists the president-elect at 6-foot-2.
It may just be an inch, but size apparently matters to Trump. A letter that the businessman candidate displayed this summer from his longtime gastroenterologist — while appearing on the Dr. Oz show — stated he was 6-foot-3, though media reports were quick to point out discrepancies.
So why would Donald Trump lie about his height? The left has a theory and it has to do with his weight:
Slate, for example, posited that Trump was adding an inch to his height to avoid crossing into obesity territory — he also weighed 236 pounds — on the BMI index.
Clearly this disqualifies the billionaire businessman from assuming the office of the Presidency and he should step down immediately of face impeachment due to the BMI provision in the Constitution! (My attempt at sarcasm)
In a time when “fake news” is all the left is talking about this apparently is what passes for real news. The left is in full meltdown mode after Donald Trump’s stunning victory and in their quest to deligitimize him they are entering the land of the absurd.
