Donald Trump Can't Stop Fat-Shaming People
Donald Trump found a way to make yet another fat joke on the campaign trail.
At a fundraising event yesterday for New Jersey Governor Chris Christie, Trump managed to bring the topic of trade back to Christie's weight. Trump referenced Oreos, which Trump claims he swore off in August (wink, wink) when Oreo's parent company added production plants in Mexico and downsized operations in Chicago. And then Trump said this:
"I’m not eating Oreos anymore, you know that — but neither is Chris," Trump said at the event in New Jersey on Thursday. "You’re not eating Oreos anymore. No more Oreos. For either of us, Chris. Don’t feel bad."
This level of bullying is different from what we've been reading about Trump lately. Women are usually his target when it comes to judging apperances. It's unusual for Trump to persecuted a man over his looks. As the election nears, this could be a new level of mudslinging for Trump: dissing people in his own party to make himself look better.
While he is the only Republican candidate now running, comments like this can't help Trump's approval rating. It's already extremely low with women, and now men aren't safe from Trump's criticism. Will Trump lose support from men as the election comes closer?
In case you were wondering, Trump does make a line of mirrors in his Trump Home Collection. It's not clear if they're the kind you see at a funhouse that make you look thinner than you are. If they do, I suspect those are the only ones Trump uses to enable his distorted version of reality.
