ICYMI: Trump's Health Report Was Released...Did CNN's Acosta Just Fat Shame Trump?

President Trump’s health report was released, and the media pounced over the fact that he was obese—on paper—but overall in good health. His cholesterol has gone down (via USA Today):

President Donald Trump weighed in at 243 pounds during his physical last week, an increase of four pounds from last year that makes him technically obese, according to a report released Thursday by the White House.

Trump's blood pressure, 118/80, was about the same as last year (122/74), while his cholesterol was down to 196 from 223 last year. The president has also had an increase in dosage of rosuvastatin (also known as Crestor), a drug designed to help reduce cholesterol levels.

"It is my determination that the President remains in very good health," said Dr. Sean Conley, the president's physician, in the report released by the White House.

The administration released the report in the midst of a busy news cycle, just minutes after officials announced that Trump would declare a "national emergency" at the border in a bid to obtain funding for a border wall. 

Trump – who once described his exercise regimen as "I walk, I this, I that" – has long faced questions about his health. Last year, he was weighed at 239 pounds, giving the 6-foot-3 president a body mass index of 29.9, just under the level of 30 that is considered obese.

But the president’s health has become a sick fixation of the liberal news media that feign concern over the results. If Trump were to drop dead today, there would be an outpouring of joy and celebration. Two years ago, we all saw their true colors when Trump’s then-doctor Rear Admiral Ronny Jackson gave a solid health report, which was met with profound disappointment from the Washington Press Corps. They wanted heart problems, they wanted high blood pressure, they wanted him declared mentally slow etc. anything that could help them in their stories undermining this administration. Back then, one reporter asked if the president was addicted to drugs. It was disgusting. Jackson was derided as a Trump fanboy, despite being Obama’s physician

And then, there’s CNN Acosta with this needless commentary on the report. I thought fat shaming was looked down upon in liberal circles.
