  • Donald Trump self-reported his height and weight at 6'3" and 215 pounds during his jail booking Thursday.

  • But men on TikTok don't believe him, and are showing what that physique really looks like.

  • Trump previously reported his weight as 240 when he was booked in New York in April.

Of all the half-truths and outright lies that Donald Trump has come up with over the years, his most recent — that he stands a towering 6'3" and weighs just 215 pounds — seems to have galvanized the men of TikTok the most.

Trump and his lawyers helpfully pre-reported his height and weight stats prior to his booking in Fulton County Jail on Thursday night on charges alleging he tried to overturn Georgia's 2020 presidential election results.

When those statistics were released along with Trump's mugshot, people immediately began to question the figures.

According to Trump, he's got the same stature as Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Kenny Pickett or New Orleans Saints quarterback Derek Carr. In response, several guys have taken to TikTok to show what the average 6'3", 215-pound man looks like.

To wit, Tiktok user alex_dbrow said "the math ain't mathin.' "

When Trump was arrested in Manhattan in April, he reportedly told authorities he weighed 240 pounds, which was much more in line with what White House doctors reported he weighed during his term in office.

 

 

"This actually helps me see how MUCH he was off by. I kept seeing football players that were 215 and that didn't give as much context for me," said one commenter.

"My boyfriend felt bad because he's 5'10" and weighs more than Donald Trump...good to kno its probably not true," said another.

 

"We're not making fun of Donald Trump for being fat, we're making fun of Donald Trump for being vain," one TikToker explained, "There is nothing wrong with being fat."
