Judge of Characters: Girth of a Nation

First of all, the lies and fake news being spread from President Donald Trump have been dizzying. What’s up is down; what’s left is right.

Recently, the White House physician, Dr. Ronny L. Jackson, addressed the public in a press conference, claiming that the results of 45’s physical suggest that he’s in “excellent health,” seemingly because of “incredible genes.” And he said all of this with a straight face.

The internet erupted in disbelief, birthing the term “girther” in response. It’s a play on “Birther,” the term assigned to Trump and others who demanded to see former President Barack Obama’s birth certificate after claiming that he was born in Kenya (there’s also #AlternativeFats, which is equally delightful).

Basically, we want to see the receipts because if we’re supposed to believe that 45 is 6 feet 3 inches and 239 pounds, we should also believe that Trump is the greatest president America’s ever seen. Let the church say: fake news!

Check out this week’s Judge of Characters, which mostly judges the lies spewing from Trump and ’nem.
