The president is not exactly an athlete, in fact, we’ve never seen him do anything but play golf, and even that seems strenuous for the overweight POTUS. What we never see Trump do is move quickly, and now we know why. He’s afraid to jiggle. Trump was asked if he’d take the opportunity to throw out the first pitch of game five of the World Series, but what he said was the lamest excuse ever.
Trump said this when asked about throwing the pitch:
“I don’t know, they got to dress me up in a lot of heavy armor — I’ll look too heavy. I don’t like that.”
Sorry to tell you, Donald, but you look too heavy no matter what you’re doing.
Now, one of Trump’s many enemies, Chef Jose Andres, will throw the pitch instead. Check out this tweet:
Confirmed by @Nationals: Trump not scheduled to throw out the first pitch if there's a Game 5 of the World Series. Instead, he'll watch @chefjoseandres — a critic who pulled out of Trump's DC hotel — throw the ceremonial pitch

Andres is well known for his endless humanitarian efforts, as well as his legal feud with Trump over Andres backing out of a plan to open a restaurant in one of Trump’s hotels.
People responding to the tweet above were in agreement that it’s probably a good thing that Trump isn’t doing it. Check out the reactions below:
