Snowflakes, snowflakes

Nearly half of America’s fittest is concerned that President Donald Trump does not promote fitness, according to a new survey conducted by Great Blue Research. Of Americans who exercise two or more times per week, 48 percent expressed concern that the president does not emphasize a healthy, active lifestyle, the study reported.

Dear Lord, the things they will complain about.

No doubt impeachment is next, eh?

  1. Of course no one voted for Trump. It was an alliance between some Appallachian hillbillies and Russian teenagers that hijacked the voting booths.

    However, now that he is President, he must interfere in areas which are none of his damn business under the constitution.

  2. This won’t be the most ridiculous criticism of Trump. I just wonder how much sillier it will get before it becomes self-limiting by the increasing level of scorn? Probably there’s a good way to go yet.

  3. “Of Americans who exercise two or more times per week, 48 percent expressed concern that the president does not emphasize a healthy, active lifestyle”

    . . . whereas Hillary would have.

    All is lost, all is lost!

  4. ‘according to a new survey conducted by Great Blue Research’

    Lean times at Great Blue Research?

  5. “Isn’t he making a lot of people jump?”

    And telling many more to take a running jump.

  6. Imagine that. A 70 year old man still physically active and at peak mental capacity (whether you like the dude or not, he’s still got all the marbles he had when he was 30) who probably got that there more through moderation and light exercise than worrying about ‘physical fitness’ (ie, didn’t ruin his knees running 6 miles a day for the last 20 years) isn’t pushing the meme that we all need to exert ourselves more.

    All the dudes I’ve known who were heavy into fitness are skinny, sure. They’re also blown out, constantly complaining about something hurting and will probably still die within 5 years of my fat ass anyway.

  7. I think being rich or at least having a rich person’s lifestyle has a lot to do with keeping him in reasonably good shape into his 70s.

    For example, I don’t think he has eaten at McDonalds at least since he was ~20 years old

  8. ““Of Americans who exercise two or more times per week, 48 percent expressed concern……”

    And what percentage of the US demographic exercise two or more times a week? We’re basically talking pencil pusher cucks & gym bunnies here, aren’t we? The sort of Americans voted Trump get their exercise on a daily basis, through hard fucking work.
    The disconnect from the voting public just gets wider & wider, doesn’t it?

  9. My experience of working and holidaying in the US has convinced me that there are two types of American males – those (a minority) that spend 3 hours a day pumping iron, and the rest that are too wide to fit through a standard door-frame.

  10. Oh come on! Within hours of Trump being elected there were thousands of fat women marching along the streets waving placards. It looked like the first exercise many of them had had for years.

    +1. No one in that crowd had ever seen a thigh master, that’s for sure.

  12. John – “I think being rich or at least having a rich person’s lifestyle has a lot to do with keeping him in reasonably good shape into his 70s.”

    For men over 50 having sex twice a week is as good for you as giving up smoking.

    If we were all married to Mrs Trump, any of them, we would be in much better health.

    One of my 80-year-old friends is, as you say, skinny: but hardly blown out – he still walks faster than most people his age, and quite a few of your own, can run (a couple of years ago he walked – according to race-walking rules – the London Marathon in 4hr 45 min) and never complains. You need to get out and meet a few more people.

    The 90+-year-old decathlete in my club eventually died of old age but he wasn’t complaining about anything hurting the last time I met him.
