    Yuge POLITICO SCOOP – Trump might really be 6’2″ not 6’3″

    Yuge POLITICO SCOOP – Trump might really be 6’2″ not 6’3″

    Does Politico have ANY idea how stupid and frivolous this makes POLITICO appear?

    Politico has a SCOOP.

    Trump’s driver’s license casts doubt on height claims:

    Donald Trump and his doctor claim he’s 6-foot-3, but his New York driver’s license says he’s actually an inch shorter.

    A copy of Trump’s license, obtained by POLITICO through an open-records request, lists the president-elect at 6-foot-2.

    It may just be an inch, but size apparently matters to Trump. A letter that the businessman candidate displayed this summer from his longtime gastroenterologist — while appearing on the Dr. Oz show — stated he was 6-foot-3, though media reports were quick to point out discrepancies.

    Slate, for example, posited that Trump was adding an inch to his height to avoid crossing into obesity territory — he also weighed 236 pounds — on the BMI index. That Slate article pointed to multiple media that pegged Trump as 6-foot-2, including Google, though the search engine now has Trump at 6-foot-3.

    A special edition of Time published earlier this year profiling Trump also listed him at 6-foot-3 while noting “it irritates him that so many media outlets say 6-foot-2.”

    How did Politico get the license?

    The license was released to POLITICO by the Virginia Department of Alcoholic Beverage Control through an open-records request related to the central Virginia winery that’s owned by Trump and run by his son Eric.

    If only it had done such extensive investigation to obtain that secret tape of Obama with anti-Israel activists prior to the 2008 election.

    It would not surprise me one bit that the DMV entered 6’2″ for Trump when he’d answered 6’3″ simply because the ‘3’ key was missing on that particular clerk’s typewriter. The point being that there is a large number of simpler explanations that ought to be ruled out before leaping to some conspiracy. Of course, that assumes one seeks the facts/truth. If the motivation is political, by all means, leap straight to the conclusion that best promotes your agenda. It’s the only way to get there without evidence.

    Trump is an egomaniac, a man who, if he’s 6′ 2″, is taller than 96% of American men, and still he’s not satisfied. He has to WIN, even at being tall.

    He may have once been 6′ 3″, or close to it, but vertebral compression, and the slight-to-moderate hunch in his shoulders, both very common to anyone his age, mean that he’s probably 6′ 2″ or shorter now. — not that there’s anything wrong with that.
