Is it wrong to fat shame the president?
Sure, fat-shaming and body-shaming is wrong, but Trump's critics say he's engaged in it for so long that he deserves some of the ridicule. Watch this video montage of his comments on women's weight and see what you think.
Even if people are hypocritical jerks, there's no excuse for bigotry. If it's wrong to body-shame people, why would it be okay to do it to Trump? Aren't we just emulating and justifying his fat-shaming behavior?
Others say "Live by the sword, die by the sword."
If you're going to own beauty pageants, go on Howard Stern to rate women's bodies, call women pigs, laugh about how bad the first female presidential nominee looks from behind, and joke that some women are just not hot enough for you to assault? Then don't complain when people ridicule your appearance.
When it comes down to it, people are still mocking someone for being fat. If you want to critique his behavior, why are you emulating it?
