Are you down with the #GirtherMovement?

In case you missed it because you're not a fan of liars lying on behalf of other liars, there was a White House press conference Tuesday. The big topic of the day, aside from the fact that a racist Filet-O-Fish storage facility is still the alleged POTUS, was Navy Rear Adm. Ronny Jackson's announcement of Trump's first formal medical exam results.

Almost immediately, many called attention to the possibility that portions of those results—ol' Dongnald's height and weight, specifically—could have been fudged to avoid an obesity categorization for a man who once reportedly called Khloé Kardashian a "fat piglet."


As Guardians of the Galaxy director James Gunn (who's offering $100,000 to charity for an impartial re-weigh) and others have noted, the #Girther discussion isn't about fat-shaming but is instead meant to call attention to the endless feed of bullshit that's been blasting out of the White House since Jan. 20, 2017. With that in mind, let's take a ride:

Why won’t Pres Trump show us the scale? What is he trying to hide? #GirtherMovement

Has anyone coined "girther" for those who belive the president weighs more than his doctor reports?

Petition to make Trump release the long-form girth certificate. #girther

For the record, @realDonaldTrump said he was 74 inches in 2012. Now his doctor says he's 75 inches. And that one inch makes is BMI "overweight" not "obese." I'm a #girther because old men don't GROW an inch!

At the time of this writing, Trump had not released his full girth certificate
