Internet Laughs After Donald Trump Says He Has A Better Body Than Biden
Former President Donald Trump is the butt of the internet’s jokes this week after claiming he has a better body
Former President Donald Trump is the butt of the internet’s jokes this week after claiming he has a better body than President Joe Biden. Trump has long boasted of his physical prowess and superiority. And if you listen to his White House doctor, he’s a perfect specimen of health in his late 70s.
But the internet has some different feelings about the former President’s body. Those feelings all came to the surface over the weekend after the business mogul made the claim that he has a better body than Biden.
Trump’s Doctor Praises His Physical Prowess
The last time the world had an official update on the health of Donald Trump, the year was 2020 and it was time for the then-President‘s annual physical. Trump, who is now 77, is often mocked by critics for his physical fitness. Or rather, lack thereof. The former President is not known for being physically active, aside from his spins on the golf course. And his preferred diet of McDonald’s Big Macs and diet Coke is well known.
That’s why it may have surprised some that the business mogul’s 2020 physical came with glowing praise for his perfect health. According to former President’s Physician Sean Conley, the junk-food-loving septuagenarian weighed “244 pounds, stands 6 feet 3 inches, has a blood pressure of 121/79 mmHG and a resting heart rate 63 beats per minute.” While people called the findings into question, the doctor stood steadfast in his determination.
Both Conley and his predecessor, Ronny Jackson, made glowing praise of the former President’s health. They promised that he would remain healthy “for the duration of his Presidency,” which he did. But some critics expressed doubt. When Trump ran for President in 2016, he did not release any significant medical information, although it’s a common practice among presidential hopefuls. Instead, he shared a statement from his personal doctor, Harold Bornstein, which read in part, “If elected, Mr Trump, I can state unequivocally, will be the healthiest individual ever elected to the presidency.” It’s a curious statement considering that his predecessor, former President Barack Obama, was the picture of health and physical fitness.

That may be why people are expressing amusement that Donald Trump believes he has a better body than Biden. Biden is also known for being physically active and cuts a slim figure in a suit.
On Saturday, Trump made an appearance before an amped-up crowd in Waterloo, Iowa. There, the topics ranged from Israel and immigration to Trump and his greatest rival’s bodies. Trump laughingly told the crowd, “[Biden’s] got a consultant somewhere, this is the worst consultant in politics, that thinks he looks good in a bathing suit. He spends so much time at the beach.” The former POTUS then boasted, “I have a much better body than him. But I’m not really sure I want to expose it, with the sun blaring down, the sand, the surf, the wind. It’s not a pretty sight.”
And the internet immediately reacted. One user wrote on social media, “No one needs him to prove it. Believe me.” Another mused, ‘That may [be] his worst lie told yet.” A third user didn’t mince words, responding, “No he doesn’t.” Another suggested that perhaps Trump has been deceived by his own online image, writing, “Maybe he’s been looking at too many of those photoshopped pictures where someone places his head in Rambo’s body? ;).”
Donald Trump has often been mocked for his unique stance in front of the cameras. Which involves leaning far forward over his center of gravity. And his bizarrely long tie which some say he uses to hide a belly paunch. The idea that he is more physically fit than Joe Biden has prompted hilarity online. And shows how distracted the former President is as 2024 election primary season inches closer.
