Trump thinks exercise is bad for you, depletes limited energy Excerpt from Trump's biographer: “After college, after Trump mostly gave up his personal athletic interests, he came to view time spent playing sports as time wasted. Trump believed the human body was like a battery, with a finite amount of energy, which exercise only depleted. So he didn’t work out. When he learned that John O’Donnell, one of his top casino executives, was training for an Ironman triathlon, he admonished him, ‘You are going to die young because of this.’” Opinion (mine): The level of stupid that just keeps coming out of this POTUS is just unbelievable. It's like he's trying hard, trying really hard to make himself appear more medieval backasswards and anti-modern than those Islamic fundamentalists that still govern their societies like it's the 6th century.
