Beyond his mugshot and the fact that he had been criminally indicted for allegedly conspiring to overturn the results of the 2020 presidential election, former President Donald Trump also went viral last week because he was listed at 6-foot-3, 215 pounds in the official paperwork from the booking.
Trump was arrested and booked in the Fulton County Jail in Georgia after being charged with 13 felony accounts.
Trump was previously listed at 239 pounds back in 2018, then 244 pounds in 2020.
The internet took the new numbers and ran with them, comparing Trump to elite athletes and MLB standouts who look noticeably slimmer than the former president despite similar measurements.
Many people had things to say about his weight, and that included Jemele Hill.
The former ESPN reporter reacted to the news by referring to a conversation with her doctor.
“Trump self-reporting he’s 6-3, 215 is like when the doctor asks me how many alcoholic drinks I have in a week and I say two,” she admitted.
Jemele Hill, an award-winning journalist, has been outspoken about President Trump in the past as she faced criticism in 2017 for calling the president a white supremacist.
Before achieving his current peak physical performance, his former weight was considered obese.
Trump is now charged in four criminal cases: in federal court in Florida and Washington and in state court in Georgia and New York. He denies all wrongdoing and states everything he is going through will endear him further to a base that he’s helped make skeptical of the criminal justice system investigating him.
Trump remains the clear favorite so far for the Republican presidential nomination.
