Hillary Clinton should reveal her weight and face the same vicious fat-shaming Donald Trump was subjected to after he revealed his weight on “The Dr. Oz Show.”
Clinton has been touted as “perfectly healthy” by pro-Hillary media outlets even though she’s clinically overweight, has suffered repeated coughing fits, is battling pneumonia, and collapsed on Sept. 11.
On Thursday’s episode of the “Dr. Oz Show,” the 6-foot-3 Trump revealed he weighs 236 pounds.
Pro-Hillary media such as the New York Times and New York Daily News immediately fat-shamed him, wrote false stories claiming Trump weighs 267 pounds, and even nicknamed him “Fat Donald.”
But wait — if Trump is overweight, then so is Hillary.
But the press wouldn’t dare call her “Fat Hillary” or “Cankles Clinton.” Because that’s sexist, right?
But if you can’t handle being fat-shamed by the media, how are you going to stare down Vladimir Putin in tough negotiations?
Meanwhile, Donald Trump admitted to Dr. Mehmet Oz that he wants to lose 15 to 20 pounds, but otherwise feels great.
“I think when you’re running for president, you have an obligation to be healthy,” said Trump. “I just don’t think you can do the work if you’re not healthy. I feel as good today as I did when I was 30.”
Trump, 70, took a battery of medical tests last week and shared the following fairly impressive results:
- Cholesterol: 169
- HDL cholesterol: 63
- LDL cholesterol: 94
- Trigylcerides: 61
- Blood Pressure: 116/70
- Testosterone: 441.6
- Colonoscopy done July 2013: No polyps.
Dr. Oz, a Harvard-educated heart surgeon, said Trump is extremely healthy, especially for a man his age.
Meanwhile, Hillary has yet to disclose her weight, even though President Obama’s former physician, Dr. David Scheiner (a Hillary supporter) said she should get a head exam after her 2012 concussion, and urged both Clinton and Trump to disclose their weight.
A BMI (body mass index) calculation would no doubt reveal Hillary, 69, is clinically overweight or even obese.
At 5-foot-6, fitness experts estimate Hillary’s weight at 180 pounds or more, which would make her borderline obese.
But no one is pressing Clinton to reveal her weight because it’s insensitive/”sexist” to ask a woman her weight.
But Hillary’s health problems go far beyond carrying a few extra pounds.
In 2012, Clinton suffered a concussion after falling and hitting her head. Since then, Clinton has struggled with a series of uncontrollable coughing fits and fainting spells.
Hillary also suffered three blood clots in recent years: A blood clot in her brain in 2013, and two in her leg, in 2000 and 1998, Celebrity Health Fitness reported.
In addition to her recent pneumonia and ear infection, Clinton has suffered blurred vision, hypothyroidism, and must take prescription blood thinners for the rest of her life.
In a 2015 letter, Dr. Bardack revealed Hillary suffers from hypothyroidism (underactive thyroid gland), as TheImproper reported.
Symptoms of hypothyroidism include:
- Chronic fatigue.
- Memory lapses.
Biographer Ed Klein, former editor-in-chief of the New York Times Magazine, said Hillary suffers from memory lapses, exhaustion, depression, hand tremors and blinding headaches.
Repeated bouts of insomnia have “sapped her energy,” Klein wrote in Unlikeable: The Problem with Hillary. “She is exhausted and depressed a lot of the time.”
