Left embraces “thin epidemic” in 2018: Guess who you can “fat shame” with impunity?

David MenziesMission Specialist

 

Apparently Donald Trump is border-line obese and doesn’t exercise all that much.

Indeed, after giving readers a detailed list of the president’s physical stats, Tanya Basu of the Daily Beast wrote:

“Trump is in crappy shape and could use a diet, or he’s in danger of dying from heart disease or a stroke, whichever comes first.”

Trump allegedly faces mortal danger because he weighs three pounds more than he did last year!

For years, the left has said it’s rude, crude, and even culturally-insensitive to mock someone’s weight. If conservatives mocked Hillary’s plumpness, we’d hear cries of misogyny, and fat-shaming.

But, in 2018 there’s a new narrative — Trump is too fat to govern properly.

Remember when Toronto’s Media Party went after Mayor Rob Ford and in a moment of gotcha journalism, published a photo of him exiting a Kentucky Fried Chicken outlet?

It ran on Page One as if his honour had been caught frequenting a house of ill repute!

Whether it’s the late great Mayor Ford or President Trump, the left's hatred is nothing short of visceral, and the new normal is, fat-shaming is bad, unless the target is someone on the right.

Drew Wakariuk,

Thanks – I will give you a call.

James, you seem to think you are omniscient therefore you believe are God therefore you are delusional so I shall stop listening to you.
I rest my case.

Jimminy Cricket Crokett…..The left led by the Hollywood soothsayers damn near needed medical attention when Orca Winfrey bellowed out her " on the horizon" finish to her hypocritical blather in her best Howard Dean impersonation. The left would NEVER comment on her expanse, even though they have to wrap her in ratchet straps in order to get her dress on. Is your hero Obama in great health. Skin wrapped around bone doesn’t necessarily translate to good health…especially when you are constantly sneaking out for a cigarette. But that would be skinny shaming. Back to world of lipids. How would you classify Alberta’s mammoth Minister of Health? She may be in fine health but the optics aren’t good. The display by the so called journalists at the briefing on Trump’s medical was so shameful and STUPID it should be played in journalism school as a “don’t go there”. Even Sanjay Gupta made a fool of himself…he is a good fit for CNN. James C…..Why don’t you challenge Trump to a game of golf?…..before we arrange that boxing match between you and Drew….one I would pay money to watch. As long as Trump is above ground we will get the changes necessary to save us from the NWO. Good health to you Mr. Trump….live long and prosper.

James Crockett were you at the FAKE HATE CRIME protest? Or is it OK to slander Asian men?

James Crockett the word here is “Hypocrisy” , look it up, that is the point of the story. And show me all these stories of Clintons weight.
commented 2018-01-23 01:26:10 -0500
James i know what it means and you did not prove Ezra wrong in any way. When Clinton was president the left was not a pack of SJW idiots like they are today. And Al roasted you. LMAO!

Al Peterson,

There is no God.

Those who believe are delusional.

Stop being a weak minded fool.

Al Peterson,

Except whataboutism doesn’t apply here and it’s clear you don’t know what it means or when it does apply.

Ezra is making the case to his flock of mindless sheep that this is a first and the media/liberals wouldn’t dare do the same “fat shaming” to a Democrat.

I proved him wrong.

That isn’t whataboutism.

It looks like Ezra and others forget that Bill Clinton was made fun of for his weight in the media.

Phil Hartman used to play Clinton on Saturday Night Live and they would show him going to McDonalds to eat a bunch of burgers and fries when he was supposed to be jogging and losing weight.

Of course no one on the right is bringing that up, because Trump is apparently a victim and of course that would go against their agenda.

What else does the left have to attack President Trump with other than his body mass index…now that they’ve run out of things to make up out of whole cloth about him.
The left are that desperate! LOL!
The left are also completely ignorant of the words, hypocrisy and objectivity.
What a bunch of losers. LOL!
GO Trump!

liza rosie,

Sorry, but when you say you believe a doctor’s report that 71 year old who eats fast food every day and his only form of exercise is a sport where you won’t lose weight doing it – not to mention him sitting down and watching TV constantly, you are simply saying to the world:

“My Name Is Liza Rosie And I Am A Complete Idiot”.

James, when you assume to have all knowledge and all power you are saying to the world:
I am God and I am delusional.

president taft weighed something like 300 lbs. So what? He did a good job. If he chooses to shuffle of his mortal coil early that’s his business. Is nothing more substantial in our world for theft to obsess about?

Drew Wakariuk,

What’s your phone number and I will let you know.

I assure you that the waiver will be needed for you.

You know who looks great for 71?

Sylvester Stallone.

Not Donald Trump.

All of their attacks on Trump, or anyone else who is not part of the globalist gang of fools, are deflections for their criminal actions.

Any guesses on the actual age of “James Crockett” given his “high school debating society level of responses”…?
commented 2018-01-22 02:51:55 -0500
You forgot knuckle dragger.
Stop projecting crockett. It is plain to see who is the mouth breather here. I imagine your voice to sound like climate barbie’s, all nasal. She is a mouth breather too. Literally. I didn’t say Trump could take on anybody, I said he was in damn good shape , which he is. I have seen 50 year olds who look worn out. Trump does not look worn out. You should look so good over 70. You probably won’t have to worry about that.

By they James Trudeau would also beat Obama in the ring , so what is your point?
commented 2018-01-22 01:49:55 -0500
James Crockett or even better let me pick on of the women i train with, she may not knock you out , but she will destroy you in points.
