I read an article from Business Insider on the internet today. It talked about the overweight problem U.S. military branches of the service are having.

During my two decades-plus serving in the military, if a member was overweight, they were put on a weight control program to get their weight within standards. If they failed to do this within the allotted amount of time, they were discharged from the service. It sounds like that policy may still be in effect.

My only question is, I wonder if anyone has weighed the commander in chief lately?
