Al Sharpton hit President Donald Trump for his weight during comments marking Martin Luther King Jr., Day in Harlem, quipping he should order three Big Macs instead of two.
According to New York Times writer Shane Goldmacher, Sharpton complimented New York Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D.) as a "national celebrity" and, perhaps alluding to potential White House ambitions, said Trump should "get your best gloves out" before making the joke about Trump's fondness for fast food.
It's a noteworthy comment from Sharpton, given his former obesity.
The now slimmed down-Sharpton once weighed more than 300 pounds. In 2014, the New York Daily News profiled Sharpton's mega-diet that had him down to just 129 pounds as of that publication, and he has maintained that skinny profile since.

Sharpton, a civil rights activist and MSNBC host, has known Trump for decades due to their long ties to New York City.
That would make sense.
Agreed. The left has no arguments or actual issues anymore.
Ridicule is mans most potent weapon. - Saul Alinsky
Trump looks healthier than Sharpton. Al looks horrible and, also, needs to be in prison for tax evasion
When it comes to ordering three Big Macs, Fat Al speaks from experience.
LOL. True. :D
Donald could drop at least 25 lbs
look much better
I can’t believe it took 27 posts to mention AIDS. It is quite obvious he is dying. Bill Clintoon is on the same path.
Funny he couldn’t get the “joke” right - had the numbers bass-ackwards....
It doesn’t matter what Trump says. Anything he says negative about any black, even if demonstrably true, is automatically racist and legitimate grounds for impeachment.
How about you pay your taxes Al.
Probably had stomach restriction weight loss surgery.
That is how our 400 Lb SIL lost 200 lbs. BIG man 6’4” so normal weight is 200 Lb, heart, diabetes are a thing of the past. And no flabby hanging skin now all muscle.
