"Guardians of the Galaxy" director James Gunn is offering to donate $100,000 to 's charity of choice if the president weighs himself on an "accurate scale" following the release of his first physical exam. "For instance, Trump is reportedly 6'3" and 239 pounds while professional football player Carrol Phillips is the same height and ways 3 pounds more than the president, but looks much different.

"Similar to Gunn's tweet, AV Club writer Dennis Perkins also posted a side-by-side of Trump and Latavius Murray, running back for the Minnesota Vikings, and said they were both listed as 6'3"/235 lbs.

'Guardians Of The Galaxy' Director James Gunn Offers $100000 If Trump Will Step On A Scale

The word "girther" is a play on the "birther" movement when Trump demanded then President Barack Obama's birth certificate, alleging that Obama was born in Kenya and not eligible to be president.

The charity donation on the table mirrors Trump's $5 million offer to Obama in 2012 in return for his college transcripts. However, Gunn thinks it is a ridiculous suggestion that Trump weighs the amount stated by the doctor, so he is not anxious about this. "He is absolutely fit for duty", he said of Trump. Is it just coincidence that the one inch makes the difference between Trump being classed as overweight rather than obese? However, it seems very unlikely that Trump will actually step on a scale to reveal his true weight.
