Donald Trump’s booking procedures in Fulton County, Georgia, an age-old falsehood emerges once again, accompanied by a fresh fabrication. The former president, whose height has been consistently recorded as 6’2″, continues to assert that he stands at 6’3″. This recurring claim, propagated for years, is met with skepticism, particularly given that at 77 years of age, the likelihood of him still being 6’2″ is slim, let alone reaching the taller stature he insists upon.
Trump’s booking records also present his self-declared weight: 215 pounds.
Six feet three inches and 215 pounds—impressive figures that evoke comparisons to peak-condition athletes like Muhammad Ali. To provide context, in 2018, Trump’s own doctor noted his weight as 239 pounds (keeping in mind the credibility concerns surrounding this doctor). A contrasting comparison is drawn to the author’s own height and physique, with a weight of around 240 pounds. The irony lies in the fact that Trump, who refrains from exercising due to his unique energy belief, claims a lower weight than someone who does engage in physical activities.
The saga of Trump’s falsehoods is well-documented. His mug shot, despite being a moment of candid exposure, presents as a choreographed performance, the culmination of weeks of anticipation. While his associates exhibit various emotional reactions, Trump stares defiantly into the camera, etching an enduring image. Unsurprisingly, his allies are quick to capitalize on this snapshot.
Laura Loomer, for instance, suggested that it might rival the popularity of the Mona Lisa. The mug shot is even being used for merchandise, from beer koozies to campaign memorabilia, generating funds for the Trump campaign.
Regardless, we have Trump at 6’1/255.
