Nancy Pelosi Fat Shames Our Idiot President

Yesterday, Nancy Pelosi called Donald Trump “morbidly obese,” but it wasn’t meant as an insult. Nancy Pelosi was being factual — or thought she was — and expressing concern for the President, who revealed yesterday that he’s taking hydroxychloroquine.

In fact, Pelosi’s characterization of the President is inaccurate. According to his doctor, Trump’s BMI is around 30, so he straddles the line between overweight and obese, but he falls well short of morbidly obese. But Nancy is a petty woman. Nancy also knows how Trump is going to react to that. I doubt that Trump was actually taking hydroxychloroquine, but he might take in now because Nancy told him not to, and like Nancy, he is petty and spiteful. Still, while Trump said he was taking it, the note released by his doctor didn’t actually say that.

Hydroxychloroquine is a MAGA thing, and this is where we are in this country. “If Donald Trump told you to jump off a bridge, would you do it?” All those people who are taking hydroxychloroquine and protesting stay-at-home orders are basically jumping off a bridge for Donald Trump. Hydroxychloroquine is not an effective treatment for Covid-19, notwithstanding what the CEO of OANN says.

We all know the truth. Donald Trump is not taking hydroxychloroquine.

This is not about a prophylactic measure against the Coronavirus. It’s about generating a culture war over nonsense, and holy s**t, if Twitter is any indication, it is working.

Meanwhile, I honestly have no idea what this woman from Newsmax is implying. No, seriously? What is the implication here?

Honestly, I’m not upset that the President is taking hydroxychloroquine. I am not “triggered” by it. I think he should up his dosage. Triple it. Go ahead, Trump. Prove Nancy wrong!
