In retrospect, President Donald Trump probably wishes he’d never claimed that he was taking hydroxychloroquine, because his insistence that he had been taking it gave Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) the perfect opening to level a devastating criticism that Trump is grossly out of shape.
During an appearance on CNN Monday evening, Pelosi told host Andrew Cooper that taking the controversial anti-malaria drug would be an especially bad idea for Trump, and she explained why:
“He’s out president and I would rather he not be taking something that has not been approved by scientists, especially in his age group and in his, shall we say, weight group. Morbidly obese, they say.”
Can you imagine how enraged the notoriously thin-skinned and vain Donald Trump must have gotten when he saw those remarks from Speaker Pelosi?
One thing’s for sure, Twitter immediately lit up with uproarious laughter and approval in response to what Pelosi said:
Oh he’s going to love that.

Can’t wait for Republicans to flip out over this true statement. But yes, trump would be classified as morbidly obese by any reasonable healthcare professional. #facts

If you listen closely, you can hear Donald Trump furiously tapping on a cellphone as he tells whoever happens to be in the room that the bad woman was mean to him.
Then he’ll probably order 10 more Big Macs and a bucket or two of KFC.
