Former top Trump adviser loses 90 pounds as he plots presidential run

Former Secretary of State Mike Pompeo appears to have decided that Americans are not about to elect another William Howard Taft.

He’s one of the Republicans waiting in the wings to see if Donald Trump runs or not.

According to the New York Post, which has the before and after pictures:

America isn’t just seeing less of Mike Pompeo because the Trump administration is no longer in the White House. We are seeing less of the former secretary of state because there is literally less of him — 90 pounds, to be exact . . .

It all started on June 14, 2021, when Pompeo stepped on the scale and saw he was just pounds away from 300 for the first time in his life.

The next morning, he said, he woke up and told his wife, Susan: “Today is the day.”

“I started exercising, not every day, but nearly every day, and eating right and the weight just started to come off,” he said.

Pompeo, 58, said he invested in a home gym in his basement with some dumbbells and an elliptical machine, where The Post photographed him this week. “I tried to get down there five, six times a week and stay at it for a half-hour or so. And that was nothing scientific. There was no trainer, there was no dietician. It was just me.”

  1. Pompeo is very capable and can make coherent arguments. That being said, today’s American does judge on looks. How he looks now will hurt opposing campaign ads showing the “fat guy” as a disconnect. I think he could be a treat candidate!
