[Blind Gossip] Nancy Pelosi recently made a wisecrack about Donald Trump’s weight.
House Speaker Pelosi called President Trump “morbidly obese.” That’s actually a clinical definition of a person who has a BMI (Body Mass Index) higher than 35.
We don’t know exactly how tall President Trump is or how much he weighs, so we don’t know if that is true.
However, there is a famous actor – who is approximately the same height as President Trump – who is requiring some special treatment in his projects because of his weight.
He’s put on over sixty pounds over the years and is very self-conscious about his appearance.
He wears an abdominal support garment (a mirdle) under his costume to hold his stomach in.
Also, he can never be filmed shirtless, or in any garment that can’t hide the mirdle. That’s why his character is always wearing vests and suit jackets, even if the other characters are in t-shirts.
Ah, the mirdle! We first introduced Blind Gossip readers to the mirdle many years ago (see Hunky Guy is Actually Wearing a Mirdle).
Any other special requirements?
He really prefers a CU or an MCU. He prefers to be shot from the chest up.
A CU is a Close Up and an MCU is a Medium Close Up (basically a shot from the chest up).
If it’s a longer shot, our actor seems to be behind a desk/behind a podium/sitting at a table a lot of the time to hide his torso.
President Trump, on the other hand, loves a good cowboy shot (which shows the subject from mid-thigh up) despite his weight.
So, mirdles and vests and close ups seem to help our actor resolve his self-consciousness about his avoirdupois. Hey, whatever works for him!
A couple of additional hints.
Our actor is currently the lead on a successful TV series and is over the age of 50.
He was actually considered a stone cold fox in his younger days and still has a very handsome face… so we certainly don’t mind all the close ups!
[Optional] Your best guess: President Trump’s height is ______ and his weight is ______. Please keep your comments civil.
