American Presidential Campaign – Physical Fitness Versus Mental Agility

clintonvtrumpWhen it came to declaring physical fitness, Hilary and Trump made their medical records public. One if not the other between the two was the obvious choice to be deemed “physically fit”. But that was not to be the case. Between the two closely contesting candidates was the buzz of a third candidate, the Libertarian nominee Gary Johnson.

As was expected, Trump’s physician once commented that Trump would be the healthiest candidate to be ever voted. This was in complete contradiction to what was revealed during Trump’s interview at Dr.Oz Show in which his medical records and responses to questions clearly indicated that he hardly exercised, he weighed 236 lbs and was quite fond of fast food. And Donald Trump is 70 years old.

Johnson, on the other hand, was 63 year old, weighs 172 lbs, has run several marathons and trialthlon series, was a mountaineer who had climbed many a summit, including the world’s highest – Mt. Everest. His daily routine included a two hour exercise regimen prior to campaigning. According to his physician, Johnson does not smoke. Though not aregular tobacco cigarette smoker, there is some debatable information regarding his relationship with marijuana. He does not drink.

Johnson is in support of legalizing marijuana and was famous for being a user of the drug himself.

None of this really has caught the fancy of the American public because he seemed to commit quite a few blunders on what is considered to be general knowledge and current happenings. He did not know that Allepo was the Syrian city in that was infamously the epicentre of civil strife. In another instance, he was caught completely unawares when he was asked to name one foreign leader he admired. Johnson just froze and it has since then, in lighter vein, been called ‘The Allepo Moment’!
