An Incomplete List Of Athletes With The Same Measurements As Donald Trump, Who Said He Was 6’3 And 215 Pounds

Former president Donald Trump turned himself in to Fulton County jail in Atlanta, Georgia on Thursday night, as he faces a number of charges as part of a large RICO case against those who tried to overturn the 2020 election results in the state.

While all of that figures to be a very long trial process that won’t conclude any time soon, in the immediate everyone wanted to see a couple of things. One was Trump’s mugshot, which took a bit (and had a fake going around) but did finally hit the internet and got passed around social media alongside plenty of jokes. The second was Trump’s listed height and weight, as he had to self-report his measurements to the jail log and somehow landed on 6’3, 215 pounds.

Now, anyone who has seen Trump knows that is an aggressively flattering weight, but unfortunately the folks at the jail don’t put you through a full combine measurement process when you get booked, so we won’t know the real thing. That said, we can take a look through a sports lens at what a 6’3, 215 pound person looks like and compare that to what the recently incarcerated former president looks like and have a little bit of fun. I also must stress that we have literally done this same thing before, back in 2018 when he claimed to be 6’3, 239 pounds, meaning in the last five years he is apparently down 24 pounds from an already questionable weight claim.

Without further ado, an incomplete list of athletes from the NBA and NFL boasting similar measurements as Donald Trump:
