On Dr. Oz’s daytime show, Donald Trump stated that he weighs 236 pounds, and stands 6-foot-3. He didn’t hop on a scale or anything, we are just to take him to at his word.
Now remember, back in 1996, Trump had fat-shamed Alicia Machado after she won the Miss Universe pageant and gained weight, allegedly calling her “Miss Piggy” and staging a photo op where she was forced to exercise.
Well, the internet never forgets, and people on Twitter had a field day discussing Trump’s weight. Here are some of the best tweets:

According to his latest physical, Donald Trump weighs 236 pounds. Sounds like someone needs to build a wall between him and KFC.

Donald Trump claims to only be 236 pounds. His pot belly, turkey neck and jowls plead the fifth.

@SopanDeb Trump is NOT 236.
No way in absolute Hell. He's built like a potato.
267 at minimum

@juliemason I'd believe the birther claim before believing that Trump is only 236 lbs.
