Donald Trump’s single weirdest belief

Donald Trump’s single weirdest belief 1


President Donald Trump loves golf but he does not believe in exercise to sustain a healthy lifestyle. Instead, the President believes in the battery theory of life force, which means that people are born with a finite amount of energy. CNN’s Chris Cillizza explains what this means as it pertains to the President’s health.

    • don’t care. When Trump leaves office, what’s left of CNN ratings will be gone too.

    I remember he criticized Obama for playing golf and he said he was going to be too busy running the country that he wasn’t going to have time to play golf. I guess that was a lie , just like everything else that comes out of his mouth.

  3. “We were making the ice-cream less accessible and putting cauliflower in the mashed potato.”

    LITERALLY, things you do to control the diet of an overweight toddler.

  4. I only run when chased, I only swim when drowning, I only camp when homeless, I garden with gloves and do you know why I don’t lift weights…because those things are heavy. : )

    trump will have plenty of time to “exercise” when he is voted out of office in November.
    Every prison has an exercise yard…..right?

      Which has the smallest brain “Acting president tRump” or a Rhinovirus?
      Even though you would need an extremely powerful electron microscope to even see a Rhinovirus!
      I would still put my money on Acting President tRump for having the smallest Brain!

    Trump’s idea of exercise is chasing Russian call girls around his Moscow hotel room.

    • Sheri Parkhurst | July 16, 2020 at 9:17 PM | Reply

      Trumpturds idea of exercise is picking up the phone to call secret service to bring him a Big Mac!! That and walking from his bedroom to his bathroom 2 stare at himself in his mirror! lol 😂

    • Right? And to clean off all that sweat he works up, he gets the girls to give him a “golden” shower. It was accidental at first, they asked if he wanted a golden shower and he thought it meant a fancy shower. Turns out it’s not, but he liked it and let them finish anyway.

  7. That “healthiest ever” certainly did not refer to his psychological health… tRump is completely bonkers

    Ever wonder what it would be like if we elected a literal toddler to the office of the presidency? Now we know.

  9. Only Trump would see driving a golf cart around as exercise.

      Autocorrect sucks! Hanging onto the back.

    • Meiralora Duncan | July 16, 2020 at 8:25 PM | Reply

      blameitonthepixie You got that correct on many levels and auto correct just made it funnier. The only thing Bunker Boy does is waddle from the golf cart to the tee while his caddie carries the heavy golf bag and probably chooses which club to use before handing it to Trumpty Dumpty. Cheeto boy then sways back and forth before taking a swing at the ball. Then he squints to see where it goes before waddling back to the golf cart to repeat it again at every hole. I don’t think that an activity where he burns less than a hundred calories counts as exercise.

    • @Meiralora Duncan On the money… I don’t think he even plays tennis anymore, which is probably a blessing for everyone around him. Have you ever seen him in his tennis whites? NO! DON’T LOOK!!! You can’t un-see it.

    • @Gene Miller I disagree. Trump is a hilarious joke to the world and those watching. He’s the product of a corrupt America and dumb inactive uneducated citizens. It’s hilarious.

  10. He’s a little Child, that’s the point I took from this 🤣

    • @kingtut777
      “lying dirtbags”
      That’s funny. Even many Republican Senators and Representatives admit that Trump is a lying dirt bag. Go kick rocks.

      Trump is brilliant!! Maybe I should exercise less!! His battery theory of life force is probably right!!! The man God of Trump is always right!!!!

  12. I get it now. This whole battery theory of life energy is just an excuse for Trump not being good at sports

      Trump was scouted by professional baseball scouts when he was young. He was a very good athlete.

    • NoneOfYour Beeswax | July 16, 2020 at 6:20 PM | Reply

      Actually Trump was a pretty good athlete when he was young. The dropping of all exercise in the belief that it was a waste of resources sounds very much like the kind of rapacious and self-centred nonsense that his father would have spouted. His father would almost certainly have mocked his son’s sporting ambitions rather than encourage them, and the young Donald was ever eager to be like his odious father.

    • So what’s his excuse for being bad at business? And leadership? And being a person?

    • @Spudnick J Quesanar if you believe Trump …. Nobody else has ever confirmed he was scouted. But yes, Trump was supposedly a very talented player on his high school team. He has a powerful golf swing as well. No doubt he could be a decent athlete. But he is pathologically averse to losing, or being perceived to lose. It’s why he blatantly cheats at golf, and it’s probably why he doesn’t like sports — you can’t be a great athlete without losing once in a while. Look at Mahomes or LaBron — the best athletes in the world learn and get stronger from their losses.

    It actually isn’t very good “exercise” to drive a golf cart around

  14. John “Jack” O’Donnell is still alive 3 decades after Trump said he would die young.
    O’Donnell wrote the book “Trumped” on working w/The Donald at the failed casinos [plural/LOL].

  15. I thought of the “Battery Theory of Life”.
    While walking up the back steps to my Grandfather’s home w/my Dad.
    Thought maybe everyone gets only so many steps or whatever.
    I was 8.

  16. Obama: 113 in 8 years
    Trump: 277 in 3 years
    Republican: Obama played more than trump.

      “It’s more an obsession with corruption.”
      That also. But the main trait of character a lot of Republicans are “adorned” with is racism. They just love being that way. It just comes naturally. Their ancestors NEVER digested the Declaration of Emancipation and have transmitted their obsession to their
      offspring for posterity. Most of them can’t even tell why they hate other races. And of course, corruption goes in pair. Luckily, a large number of Republicans don’t have these traits and understand the nonsense. Many Republicans have very good friends of color and they don’t associate the value of a human being by the color of his skin. NO ONE ON THIS PLANET CHOSE THE COLOR OF HIS SKIN OR HIS ORIGIN. This certainly gives EVERYONE plenty to ponder on.

  17. His weirdest belief is that he’s actually a functioning human being.

  18. Dude truly is a genius, no wonder he was over the moon at passing a 3rd grade cognitive test.

  19. Sounds like he also thinks that brain energy is also a finite amount he was born with. Thus, he never uses his brain in hope of saving it till the very end.

    He’s mistaken, he was born with a finite amount of braincells.(about 50 ).
