President Trump attacked a heckler's weight during his Thursday rally in New Hampshire, saying the protester had a "bigger problem" with weight than even he has himself.

"That guy's got a serious weight problem! Go home. Start exercising," Trump said. "Got a bigger problem than I do. Got a bigger problem than all of us."


Trump's jokes about the disruptive man's weight come after his doctor released his measurements earlier this year. At 6 feet, 3 inches tall and 243 pounds, the president falls in the "obese" category. He is known to be an avid fan of McDonald's and Diet Coke.
