I was happy to hear about the 243 pounds, although I would have guessed higher. With that much excess weight, and the amount of junk food he wolfs down, can a major cardio infarction be far behind? We can only hope.
I'm with you, and I'll guess that at least 20-25# disappeared under the C-i-c's orders to his military MD, i.e. "OK, we'll tell them that I've crossed the obesity line, but NOT
by how much."
The junk he consumes constitutes a major cardio infraction, so, hopefully, a mere two letter transposition isn't very far behind.
Y'know, at this point, I think I'd prefer to see him survive until very shortly before the next election and then
throw the Republican campaign into complete disarray by becoming incapacitated...or worse...or faaar
worse, rather than have Pence become President sooner and solidify his position as the basis for his own run...and potential second run.
