Trump Thinks Exercise Is Bad For You, Depletes Limited Energy

President Trump apparently has a dim view of exercise, seeing it as a drain on the human body’s limited energy.


“Other than golf, he considers exercise misguided, arguing that a person, like a battery, is born with a finite amount of energy,” wrote Evan Osnos of the New Yorker in a profile of Trump in the magazine’s May 8 edition.


Osnos is not the first writer to reference Trump’s battery theory of human energy. The Washington Post’s Mike Kranisch and Marc Fisher elaborated on Trump’s hypothesis in their biography, “Trump Revealed,” from August 2016.

“After college, after Trump mostly gave up his personal athletic interests, he came to view time spent playing sports as time wasted. Trump believed the human body was like a battery, with a finite amount of energy, which exercise only depleted. So he didn’t work out. When he learned that John O’Donnell, one of his top casino executives, was training for an Ironman triathlon, he admonished him, ‘You are going to die young because of this.’”

It’s hard to say how Trump’s minimal exercise routine is treating him because he has not released his health records. Instead, the former reality TV show star shared a letter summarizing the results of a recent physical from his longtime physician, Harold Bornstein, on “The Dr. Oz Show.”


Bornstein’s office declined a request for comment from Yahoo News.

The Washington Post reports that Trump is overweight; he is nearly obese at a minimum and possibly quite obese.  He prefers ‘junk food’ because he says at least you know what is in it.  Every night he gets two scoops of ice cream on chocolate pie for dessert at the White House.

 I might be able to agree with Trump on this one!
