White House’s physician Dr. Ronny Jackson announced on Tuesday that President Donald Trump weighed 239 pounds during his physical last week—but the internet wasn’t buying it. Now, skeptics have coalesced around a “#girther” hashtag to make their disbelief known.
The main criticism, it seems, is that Jackson announced Trump was 6’3″ and weighed 239 pounds, just one pound shy of the level that would be considered obese.
On Tuesday night, Gunn offered $100,000 to Trump’s favorite charity if he would “step on an accurate scale with an impartial medical professional” agreed upon by both Gunn and Trump.
Gunn said he did not intend for his offer to be fat shaming, but rather making a push back against “a continuous pattern of fabricating facts by both Trump and his administration.”
Gunn wasn’t alone in questioning the authenticity of Trump’s purported 239-pound weight and 6’3″ height, which is different from what his driver’s license said.
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! pic.twitter.com/ehNxF9PjPL— Gersh Kuntzman (@GershKuntzman) January 16, 2018
#Girther. I've got people in Hawaii looking into his weight, and you won't believe what they are finding.— james p cavanaugh (@rosedude1) January 17, 2018

Jackson, the White House physician, said he recommended Trump lose 10 to 15 pounds.
