MANCHESTER, N.H. (WHDH) - President Trump fat-shamed one of his supporters at his “Keep America Great” rally on Thursday night in Manchester, New Hampshire, humiliating a man in the crowd for having a “serious weight problem.”
Trump made the insensitive comment when his rally at Southern New Hampshire University arena was interrupted about 30 minutes in by a handful of protesters who somehow slipped into the rafters.
As the protesters were being led out, a Trump supporter wearing a “Trump 2020” shirt near them began enthusiastically shaking his fist in a sign of support for Trump.
Trump mistook him for one of the protesters and told the boisterous crowd: “That guy’s got a serious weight problem. Go home. Start exercising. Get him out of here, please.”
The president then paused briefly and added, “Got a bigger problem than I do.”
Granite Staters gave Trump his first GOP primary victory prior to the 2016 election.
