The Media Has Officially Jumped The Shark With Latest Attack On Donald Trump

Just when you think the liberal media couldn’t be more deranged with Donald Trump’s victory, you get something like this. Politico today published an article questioning Donald Trump’s real height. There big takeaway? Trump may have lied about his height by one inch.

Donald Trump and his doctor claim he’s 6-foot-3, but his New York driver’s license says he’s actually an inch shorter.

A copy of Trump’s license, obtained by POLITICO through an open-records request, lists the president-elect at 6-foot-2.

It may just be an inch, but size apparently matters to Trump. A letter that the businessman candidate displayed this summer from his longtime gastroenterologist — while appearing on the Dr. Oz show — stated he was 6-foot-3, though media reports were quick to point out discrepancies.

I know what you’re thinking: this has to be a parody. Sadly, it is not. It was written by their senior policy reporter, Darren Samuelsohn. This tripe is apparently what Politico considers policy work these days.

What’s even more baffling is the lengths they went to acquire this information:

The license was released to POLITICO by the Virginia Department of Alcoholic Beverage Control through an open-records request related to the central Virginia winery that’s owned by Trump and run by his son Eric.

They had to go through an open-records request to acquire a copy of Donald Trump’s license in an effort to research his real height.

This is beyond stupid.
