Former President Donald Trump handed himself over to the Fulton County Jail in Atlanta, Georgia, Thursday night as he faces a number of charges in a major RICO trial against those who tried to overturn the state’s 2020 election results is confronted.
While this is all proving to be a very lengthy process that won’t be completed any time soon, there were a few things everyone immediately wanted to see. One of these was Trump’s mug shot, which took a while (and made the rounds as a fake), but eventually ended up on the internet and circulated on social media alongside many jokes. The second was Trump’s reported height and weight, as he had to enter his measurements into prison records himself and somehow ended up at six feet and 230 pounds.
Now, anyone who’s seen Trump knows that’s an aggressively flattering weight, but unfortunately, people in jail don’t put you through a full combine gauging process when you’re booked, so we don’t know what’s really happening. That means we can take a look through the goggles at what a 1.80m tall, 100kg person looks like and compare that to the looks of the recently imprisoned former president and have a little fun. I also have to point out that we’ve literally done the same thing before, in 2018, when he claimed to be 6’2″ and weigh 239 pounds, meaning he’s been dead for the past five years apparently lost 24 pounds after already making questionable weight claims.
Without further ado, a partial list of athletes from the NBA and NFL who share measurements similar to Donald Trump:
