Trump turned on one of his own supporters and humiliated him for being fat when he mistakenly thought he was a protester at his New Hampshire rally.

Trump said, “That guy’s got a serious weight problem. Go home. Start exercising. Get him out of here, please.” Trump added, “Got a bigger problem than I do.”
The man wasn’t a protester, according to the AP, he was a Trump supporter, “The rally was interrupted about a half an hour in by a handful of protesters near the rafters of the arena. As the protesters were being led out, a Trump supporter wearing a “Trump 2020” shirt near them began enthusiastically shaking his fist in a sign of support for the president. But Trump mistook him for one of the protesters.”
Trump doesn’t believe in exercise, so it hilarious that he would tell anyone else to exercise, when he hasn’t spent a second of his presidency, exercising. Trump spoke about exercise in 2018, “A lot of people go to the gym and they’ll work out for two hours and all. I’ve seen people … then they get their new knees when they’re 55 years old and they get their new hips and they do all those things. I don’t have those problems.”
The official White House line is that Trump is not obese, yet at his rally, he admitted that he has a weight problem, so the president confirmed that his White House physicals are lies.
Trump will attack anyone. He has no respect for other human beings. The president that his supporters idolize would turn on them in a second. He showed it at his New Hampshire rally. Trump’s personality will be at the center of the 2020 election, and his behavior will be at the top of the ballot in November.
As Americans will answer if they want four more years of Trump ugliness in their lives.
