Neoconservative pundit and former Bush administration Iraq War architect David Frum made himself a target of mockery for a personal attack on President Trump’s physical fitness.
Frum claimed on CNN Sunday that “Donald Trump was the oldest president ever, one of the fattest presidents ever, the least physically capable president since Franklin Delano Roosevelt was in a wheelchair.”
The personal attack devolved into hyperbole when Frum claimed Trump “can’t pick up a ball, never mind throw it.”
Trump’s latest medical physical revealed him to be overweight, but claims that he’s the fattest President in history are categorically incorrect. William Taft had the highest BMI (body mass index) of any U.S President, famously being rumored for becoming trapped in a White House bathtub. Analysis of various Presidents shows that Trump’s BMI is generally on par with Presidents Teddy Roosevelt and Zachary Taylor.
In any case, it’s probably not the most newsworthy of stories that a 73-year old man who works constantly is overweight. Trump’s medical documents have consistently painted a picture of a President in good health.
Frum tried to revise his own remarks in a tweet after being mocked on the schoolyard bullying, claiming that it was only fair to talk about Trump’s weight when conservative commentators questioned Hillary Clinton’s health in the 2016 election.

But there’s little to no comparison between Trump’s weight and Hillary’s health concerns. The former Secretary of State was often befit with wheezing fits and had to leave campaign events early appearing extremely disoriented during the 2016 campaign.
The deposed class of neoconservative pundits such as Frum fancies themselves “principled” commentators, yet a mere scratch on the surface shows them to be no more shallow than the most vacuous of smug cultural liberals.
A Researcher at Brown University Claims that Trump Signs and American Flags Frighten Black People
America’s “Finest” Institutions Down the Insane Path of Wokeness
Carycruz Bueno, a postdoctoral researcher at Brown University, tweeted about how Black Airbnb guests may actually receive trauma from looking at Trump signs.
A few weeks ago Bueno tweeted that the online vacation rental company “doesn’t understand the trauma” that Trump signs allegedly cause for Black people.
As Ben Zeisloft of Campus Reform noted, “Airbnb rentals are privately owned properties listed for short-term and long-term rental on Airbnb. Airbnb, unlike hotels, does not own the properties. It is the platform that connects private owners with renters and facilitates payments.”
Bueno claimed that when she and her husband arrived at a property they rented in Maine they saw “Trump signs and other white nationalist symbols” in the yard. Bueno recalled that she was “immediately scared” for her life and her family’s safety.
According to Bueno’s account of the situation, Airbnb said they could do nothing to address the situation. The Brown University researcher said that this a “prime example [of] how White companies make a BLM statement,”and then proceed to “do nothing” when a Black person declares that she doesn’t “feel safe.”
Bueno is of the opinion that Airbnb is “only words no action,” and should “do better” to accommodate the grievances of so-called persecuted groups.
She also advocated for the establishment of a “greenbook version of AirBnB” in order for BIPOC (black indigenous people of color) not have “to pay to feel uncomfortable and scared.”
Bueno even went as far as to say that the American flag could serve as a symbol “used in many places to scare Black people,” on top of KKK and Confederate symbols.
Several conservative students on campus were not happy with Bueno’s remarks.
Brown University Students for Trump President Emma Rae Phillips said to Campus Reform that she is “disappointed by Bueno’s comments.”
Phillips is an economics major and observed that Bueno’s “tweets do not seem to show much understanding of how free markets work” given how people who use Airbnb can patronize other services instead.
Additionally, she noted that “American flags and Trump signs are not racist in any way, shape, or form.”
With how radically indoctrinated many students have become, you can only expect the most outlandish of behavior coming from these students. Late stage political correctness if you will.
Conservatives may have to social distance themselves from these institutions of higher learning. They’re more like indoctrination centers at this point.
