How tall is Barack Obama

Barack Obama's Height

6ft 1 (185.4 cm)

Barack Hussein Obama is an American politician, who from 2009 to 2017 served as the 44th President. One newspaper seemingly asked his press office his height, to which they said "roughly 6ft 1". In 2010 his Whitehouse medical had him listed as 6ft 1 and 179.9 pounds (in shoes/clothes). In 2016 though, his physical resulted in a height increase to 6ft 1.5, which may have been a measurement in shoes.
The First Lady, Michelle Obama stated her height in Women's Health (2009): "I'm 5' 11'".

Rampage 187.5 would’ve been his morning height if not 188cm
185.5 before bed
I’d shake his hand
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 17/Sep/20
I think he may very well have woken up at 6ft2, certainly peak years anyway and never dropped below 6ft1 evening.

Currently, he really doesn’t appear any different.

Donald Trump
Peak: 187.9cm
Today: 184.3cm

He's a likeable guy but I always thought there was something a tad fake about his public persona, like in private he is a little less easy going than he lets on.
John Bricker said on 9/Sep/20
No doubt. Seems spot on
Canson said on 25/Aug/20
Agreed Rampage. Peak 187-187.5 out of bed 185.5 afternoon
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 22/Aug/20
Slim, 185.5cm is perfect for Obama peak. But I think much earlier in the day he may very well have gotten 186cm range
Hulk.23 said on 19/Aug/20
Honest 6’1/185cm man.
Canson said on 17/Aug/20
@Christian: yea I don’t think he’s lost a lot either. The pics with Kobe when the Lakers visited the White House led some to believe he may have been under 6’1” but I’m not so sure if he really was that far under either. I can believe his peak height coming in at 6’1” flat and current could be something like 6’0 3/4-7/8. Kobe May have been favored with him. Then there was the pic with Steph Curry

Looks a decent 6.1ft
MrFish said on 15/Aug/20
Rob, in a doctor’s letter from the 2012 election, Mitt Romney was listed at 73.5 inches. Also, I met him 3 years ago (he was about age 70), and I’d give him between 6ft 0.5 to 6ft 1.
Editor Rob
The doctor said he was younger than his age too if I recall.
Christian 6'5 3/8" said on 14/Aug/20
I don't think he deserves a peak/current listing yet. He may have lost 1/8" at most, but that's not anything nearly significant.
Chinedu said on 11/Aug/20
Hello Rob.
How tall do you you think a youthful Obama would measure at night?
Editor Rob
In his 30's he may not have fallen under 6ft 1 much at all really.
Slim 6'1" said on 9/Aug/20
rampage, i disagree, look at obama next to 5'11" range dicaprio and donald trump whos 184cm today

185-185.5cm peak no 186-187 thats a bit too high
Karin Marie said on 8/Aug/20
6'4 1/2" leperchaun, Lol
You must be a Trump supporter.
Barack Obama is definitely 6'1".
He & Michelle are both very tall.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 7/Aug/20
Slim 6’1”, he could look 186-187cm range at times so it’s not complete fantasy. Earlier half of the day he may very well have measured in that zone.
Slim 6'1" said on 5/Aug/20
186+ is fantasy but so is 184 sub

6ft1 😁👍

Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 23/Jul/20
I think he’s worthy of a page. 2 time presidential candidate
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 21/Jul/20
Rob, how tall do you think Mitt Romney is and will he get a page at some point?

I think 6ft2 range peak and a bit under it today. Edged out Obama though so I reckon he’d still clear 6ft1
Editor Rob
6ft 1 flat today maybe, 6ft 1.5-2 peak, but I don't know if he'll get a page. Maybe if I see him mentioning his height.

Peak was a solid 6'1.25 tbh.

Peak was a solid 6’1, anyhow.
Gibin said on 2/Jun/20
6ft1 is spot on!
Paul Feasal said on 24/May/20
I personally think he is close to 6’2. He is definitely at least 6’1 barefoot. To me I did not see that much of a difference in height between him and Trump. I think they are close to the same height. Though I think Trump was taller when he was younger. Trump’s next shows he is slouching in each picture or has lost an inch do to the circuit urge of his neck and spine.
Richard Griesel said on 8/May/20
Exactly 6 foot, no way he's 6'1.
Nik said on 8/May/20
He could be Miranda Hart's height twin!
5.9 legit guy said on 5/May/20
He was a very strong 186.5cm guy in his prime.N
ow he measures around 185cm (I think 185.5 in the morning) but he is the definition of a tall,strong 6ft1 guy. Long legs,long arms and big shoe size. Surely taller than Trump. There is no way Obama goes under 6ft1, even at evening
5'11 estimates are absolutely ridiculous,probably made by Trump's fans
Christian 6'5 3/8" said on 3/May/20
Obama might be leaning towards a weaker 6'1" than a solid one, but 5'11" is an absolute joke.
6'4 1/2" leperchaun said on 2/May/20
Weakest 6'1" I've seen and CNN would list Obama at 6'2". Biden was measured at 5'11", so 5'11" for Obama.
5.9 legit guy said on 2/May/20
Strong 6ft 1 during the day,in the morning he is also something more
Great height and great President

I think the Ex President Barack Hussein Obama II was 186.7cm tall before he was president of the United States of America but now I think he is 185.42cm 6foot 1inch
Canson said on 8/Apr/20
They list him at 6’1 1/4” on here. Wonder if that was one of the measurements he actually received. Could’ve been the first where it said “roughly 6’1” or the “supppsed 6’1.5”

Click Here
Canson said on 23/Mar/20
@Rampage: maybe even up until he started his term. Today I’d say weak 6’1 is possible
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 6/Mar/20
I think in his 30’s he didn’t drop below 185.5cm before bed and woke up at least 187.5cm
Canson said on 25/Feb/20
@Rampage: I agree could’ve been early am. I see the one pic with pippen and Jeff Sanders and then one with Phil Jackson not completely straight and Barack and he can look the full 6’1 give or take a small fraction

Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 17/Feb/20
Yeah I can agree with that zone Canson, I think it’s likelier he did get early barefoot than in shoes afternoon time. If he’s a legit 6ft1 barefoot he should easily be 6ft2+ in shoes
Canson said on 15/Feb/20
@Rampage: that’s probably gonna be an early morning for him. Maybe peak 6’1 7/8 and 6’1 1/8 I could see meaning 6’1.5 after an hour of being awake. I admit he could look a comfortable 6’1 peak
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 5/Feb/20
6ft1½ mid morning

Joe Biden’s measured at 5’11.65”. Probably at least 6’0.5” peak. It’s unknown what time the measurement was taken, so this could be his low or it he could drop lower.
Editor Rob
At last, president-in-waiting Joe Biden can get a page 😎 It's reasonable that an inch loss has occurred and the measurement was done by the physician.

@Rampage: he’s not there yet but he may be close. Probably minimum 1/4”
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 6/Nov/19
It’s possible he’s down a fraction but i agree with Rob that half an inch is the minimum loss to justify a peak and current height, don’t think Barack’s there
Canson said on 3/Nov/19
He could’ve been a full 6’1” in 2008 when he came into office but when athletes had championship visits he didn’t look that tall. He likely has lost a fraction from his peak and is a weak 6’1” today
Matt Marsden said on 28/Oct/19
Thoughts on what Bernie Sanders' height? My guess is that, these days, at worst he's a strong 5'10", and was likely, with good posture rather than his frequent hunch, was 6'0" easily in his peak.
Editor Rob
At his age, today 5ft 10 might be possible and a couple of inches lost in height.
DannyVA said on 25/Oct/19
Rob can you check out the current Democratic presidential candidates. I got a bet going that Mayor Pete is 5'7 not 5'8.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 22/Oct/19
Rob, I don’t think that 6ft1½ measurement should be overlooked. A rock solid 6ft1er like him should easily be around that mid-morning.
Barbecide said on 15/Oct/19
I think he hasn't lost any height yet. Still looks like a solid 6'1 guy.
viper said on 14/Oct/19
I don't think hes lost anything
Jug said on 13/Oct/19
Could have been 6'1 1/4 at peak. Still fairly young and a strong 6'1. Looked about a half inch taller than Trump when standing with him.

The average guess justifies the listing!

Parker 186cm makes anything over 185cm 6'0,75 strong unlikely for Obama even peak
Dmeyer said on 8/Sep/19
At Times with the right angle Hanks could look just 3,5-4cm smaller so near enaugh 181-181,5cm , also Clooney in similar and posture could look no More than 4-5cm smaller
Chris Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 27/Aug/19
Obama really look a strong 6'1 1/2 with Tom Hanks for sure if Tom is 5'11 1/2 since a few years back. If lets say Obama is strong 6'1 and had fraction more footwear like solid 6'2.25" in shoes and Tom in 1" shoes so 6'0.5" still missing a solid 1/4. I prefer to think Tom Hanks is nothing over 181cm barefoot and Obama still 185.5cm and prob Tom was never solid 6'0 peak most likely drop to 5'11 3/4 peak and 5'11 1/4 since ten years back. I remember solid 186cm Tony Parker edge out Obama about 1cm so i wouldn't go above 6'1 for Obama.
Canson said on 11/Aug/19
Deblasio is 6’5 7/8 measured. Not sure if that is his low but looks close to it
Ian555 said on 11/Aug/19
Rob I don’t really get what weak 6’ 1” or strong 6’ 1” means. Is it like weak 6’ 1” means just barely that mark and strong 6’ 1” means a bit over that mark like 6’ 1 1/8” or 6’ 1 1/4” or even 6’ 1 1/2”?
Editor Rob
Weak can mean the person falls a fraction under 6ft 1 and a strong can be they hold 6ft 1 even at their low, so could measure a fraction over.
cmillzz said on 10/Aug/19
De Blasio is much closer to 6’6 than 6’5.
Ndomingu said on 8/Aug/19
I’ve been watching the democratic debates the past couple of months and I think Beto is minimum 6’3” if not more since he does tower over many of the candidates on stage.

The really tall politician was actually NYC Mayor Bill De Blasio who is listed at 6’5” and I find that credible from how he looks compared to everyone on stage. He would definitely beat Lincoln’s record for tallest American President, but he’s polling really low.

The candidates who will probably win the nominee are Biden, Sanders, and Warren. I saw Sanders last month give a speech on Medicare for All in DC in July 2019 and he honestly looked more average than anything. I’d guess him to be 5’10 1/2” now and he probably had a peak of 6 ft when he was younger. Next to Obama in photos I’ve seen, Sanders looked two or three inches shorter than him, so I can’t see him over 5’11”. Biden is probably a weak 5’11” now and he might’ve had a peak of 6 ft when he was younger too. Warren looked about 3-4 inches shorter than Sanders at the debates, so I’ll say she’s like a weak 5’7” and maybe was a peak of 5’8” when she was younger. Either way, this should be an exciting election cycle to see!

Chris Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 24/Jul/19
@Warren said on 30/May/19

There is no chance for a 57 years old Obama going to be shorter than 73 years old Trump even in future if you looking into their age gap of 16 years differences, big question is Trump is already this old at 73 will he live up to over 80 or over 90 is a myth to his life span. Obama still looking 185cm and Trump can look more like 6'0.25" not over.
Canson said on 22/Jul/19
Peak 6’1”. Today weak 6’1”
bondfan 6'1.5" said on 13/Jul/19
I think 6’1 at peak pretty confidently but maybe down to 6’0.75 or 6’0.5
cmillzz said on 11/Jul/19
I don’t think he was under 6’1 at his peak. I mean maybe at worst 6’0 7/8 but that’s it really.
K.A 188 said on 11/Jul/19
185. On the dot today while Trump
Is about 183.5 today, just by looking at their pictures.
pov said on 2/Jul/19
Wait if he was listed as 6’1 in shoes/clothes in whitehouse medical surely that means he must be under 6’1 barefoot? Why is he listed as 6’1?
Editor Rob
It is unknown if that meant they took his weight in clothes, but for a measurement took off his shoes. It was never unclear, the following medical a couple of years later they put down 6ft 1.5!
Canson said on 22/Jun/19
@Rob and Myopinion: Obama has looked a hair under 6’1” since around when he came out of office. I do believe at his peak that he was a legit 6’1” however if not potentially a hair over in his 20s and 30s
Myopinion said on 1/Jun/19
Rob, Is the height at the top in the morning or evening? With or without shoes?
Editor Rob
I'd give Obama about 6ft 1 without shoes, but he has begun to look at times less of a strong 6ft 1 this last year.
Warren said on 30/May/19
@Junior Hernandez 1990
Could I ask a question. If Obama got shrink in the future, he would be shorter than Trump?

I think depends the time of the day. Maybe Obama holding strong 6'1 at his low and 6'1.25" before afternoon and most of honest 6'1 claim actor was 6'0.75" at their low.
Warren said on 17/Apr/19
Over 57 age and still holding so well 6'1" Rob? don't you think about he needs a peak height now? Thank you Rob.
Editor Rob
1/4 inch loss is possible, but he may not have lost anything beyond a few mm's.
cmillzz said on 27/Mar/19
Solid 6’1 peak height.
Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 26/Mar/19
The fact that Tom Hanks listed at 5'11 1/2 now and Obama look at least 1.75" taller than Tom Click Here and Obama was no way over 6'1 with possible 6'5 Kobe Bryant Click Here and if Kobe is what people believe to be only 6'4.75" on his wife words then Barrack Obama was never 6'1 a low which he is 6'0.75" then Tom Hanks is over listed by 1/2 inch.

Can you guys do Beto O'Rourke? I believe he is an up and comer in politics. I think he is 6,3 but everyone else is telling me 6,4. I saw the interview with 5,8 Bill Maher and he does appear to be very tall next to him.
Christian 6'5 3/8" said on 18/Feb/19
Canson said on 18/Feb/19
@Christian: agreed but it was used in the context of just because he’s the man he’s perceived to be that he is definitely his listed height here which is fanboyish imho. While I do respect him very much I don’t think people should assume because someone is respected that they’re a certain listed height. People also say because Lebron is Lebron he is 6’8” or because Jordan is Jordan he has to be 6’6”.
Christian 6'5 3/8" said on 16/Feb/19
Words like "honest" and "great" are very subjective when it comes to politicians though, lol.
Paul NS (6ft 0.5) said on 16/Feb/19
Yeah around 6'0.5-0.75" seems reasonable for a peak Biden. I think he might have held onto a bit over 6' when he first took office as VP, he wasn't much shorter than Paul Ryan in 2012. He's likely to have lost more height since then though as in 2017 he struggled to look more than 3" taller than Pence
Canson said on 16/Feb/19
Just because he’s an honest and great president doesn’t mean he was 6’1”. That’s got nothing to do with his height being what it’s listed as. However he did look 6’1” for the most part when he came into office
hridoy said on 6/Feb/19
honest and great president America ever got.he is really 6'1" tall
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 4/Feb/19
Rob, could Joe Biden finally get a page here?

Didn’t realize he wasn’t listed. 6ft-ish nowadays and arguably 6ft1 peak
Editor Rob
An almost 6ft 1 peak might be possible for him. Today, 5ft 11.75-6ft range.
rawdshaq said on 3/Feb/19
I think Obama is a legit 6'1".
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 20/Jan/19
I think he'd still clock in a solid 185cm today and maybe nudging 186cm. A fit guy whose kept his height intact
TallAn said on 14/Jan/19
A classmate of mine who’s like 186-7 cm met him when he came to Greece because he was in the Presidential guard

HonestSlovene said on 13/Jan/19
He's 185 cm flat now, nearer 186 cm peak.

I think he was very near a low of 6’1” when he came into office in 08 but by the time he left probably weak 6’1” 184-185

6’0.75” just pass 185cm
Canson said on 22/Nov/18
I agree with Robs statement. He could look over 6’1 or under. The latter in more recent years but even then prob 6’0.75ish
MrFish said on 4/Nov/18
Rob, is it possible that he's a little bit under 6ft 1, since his 6ft 1.5 measurement may have been in sneakers? I can see 6ft 0.75 on a bad day for President Obama as a possibility.
Editor Rob
Obama at times has looked a bit over 6ft 1 and a bit under...rarely 184 flat though.
Canson said on 4/Nov/18
Was prob still the listed 6’1 when he came into office at 47. Looks 184-185 today at age 57
Zampo said on 26/Oct/18
@Junior Hernandez 1990:

From the photos I've seen, his eye to head height seems shorter than his eye to chin which leads me to believe, he has a higher eye-line than average for someone of his height range. I may be wrong.

Rob, any thoughts on this?
Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 24/Oct/18
No he did not have higher eye level than average look a standard 12cm for most 5'11 up to 6'2 guys have. It's more comfort on the other way to say others were usually listed higher by 1/4 when compare height makes Obama seem to look 6'1 1/4 but it's not true.
Zampo said on 21/Oct/18
Obama has features/proportions that makes him appear taller with people, one example is his higher than average eye-line. Thus he tends to look near 186 cm in photos. The fact he is just about looking a flat 6'1 in photos these days implies a genuine possibility of him at 6'0.75 range. I still think a 6'1 listing is fine for him currently.
Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 21/Oct/18
I use to think Obama was 186cm but saw those picture with 186cm Tony Parker it destroy what i have thought long ago. About 6'1 for Obama peak and maybe 6'0.75" now.
Canson said on 19/Oct/18
Agree with Christian. 6’0.75 today. Maybe a hair less and 6’1 peak.
Agent Orange said on 12/Oct/18
Good posture . Good shape. 6’1.
Christian 6'5 3/8" said on 12/Oct/18
I used to think he was legit 6'1", but having looked at more pics of him and getting a better understanding of height in general, 184-185 is about right for him.
Batistataker said on 9/Oct/18
6ft ¾ in (184.8 cm)
Christian 6'5 3/8" said on 15/Sep/18
@Alex B

I don't think that the majority of people wear lifts, but quite a few wear orthotics or gel insoles which might increase up to about 1/2" of height depending on the type. Lifts that give under 1" are pretty hard to detect.
Alex B said on 13/Sep/18
I think he would be good value for 6.1 ft. The problem is footwear, may people can buy lifts and unless you see people without footwear it can be very hard to know their true height.

I believe that Obama will measure a 6'2" out of bed, and his measurement of 6'1.5" could simply be a measurement at an earlier time of the day (for example at lunchtime, as it may have been with the measurements of Bush). Rob, this is my third comment regarding Obama's height in recent times. Are you still not sure about 186 cm for him?
Editor Rob
I can see how people estimate him 186cm, but I think 6ft 1 flat is still ok for him.
Gracian said on 14/Aug/18
Rob, I think 6'1.25" can still be argued for Obama. If you look at him next to Leonardo DiCaprio, the difference between them really looks like no more than 2 inches. Here's a good comparison Obama with Schwarzenegger, picture from 2010: Click Here
Here are Obama's photos alongside Dwayne Johnson from a few years ago: Click Here

NightHeight said on 13/Aug/18
Always thought Obama had a pretty long head, but it actually looks only slightly longer than Trump's head, so i guess it's in the 9.5 inch range with a longer eye-chin than eye-head. It also looked a lot smaller in width and circumference compared to Donald Trump.
Gracian said on 10/Aug/18
Rob, Obama can really be 186 cm tall. You said that the difference between him and Ellen DeGeneres may look like more than 7 inches, except that if you see him next to Stevie Wonder (who can have a maximum of 5'11.5" today) Obama looks close to 2 inches taller. When as Obama is standing next to him Tom Hanks, the difference between them also seems to be close to two inches too. Here's an example photo of Obama next to Hugh Jackman: Click Here
And here Obama next to Jim Carrey: Click Here
Rob, you also said that the difference between Obama and Justin Trudeau can only be half an inch. Here are their photos: Click Here

Rob, you said you understood if people estimate him as 6'1.25". Rob, or a quarter inch over 6'1" is still possible for him?
Editor Rob
I understand 1.25 estimates, though I'm not so sure I would list him at it.
Ian555 said on 8/Jul/18
Rob I believe the 6’1.5 measurement might be his real height without shoes because with shoes, which gives him that extra half inch, this makes him look like the same height as 6’2” Mitt Romney, Hugh Jackman and Aaron Rodgers and only looks a couple inches shorter than legit 6’4” Eli Manning.
Rourke said on 5/Jul/18

Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 13/Jun/18
@Vijayan Where do you buy dress shoes at just 2cm? Dress shoes nowadays made usually given more of close to 3cm and 2.54cm dress shoes for a new pair is also rare. I had a pair at 3.2cm newly bought and more i wear it compress 3mm down at 2.9cm when i do a measurement test. If you say Obama measure 186.7cm then he has to be under 6'0.75" for sure at most 6'0.5" but then he look max 3/8 shorter than 186cm Tony Parker. So 6'0 7/8 (185) at worst for Obama.
Canson said on 11/Jun/18
I think Obama may edge him (counting Trump’s hair) by a cm max. Obama actually looks a weak 6’1” at times these days. I can buy 6’1” peak but today maybe 6’0.75 and Trump May be 6’0 3/8 today. Rob made a good point about Trump’s hair
Randy said on 9/Jun/18
You have President Trump .5” under Obama; whereas all photos of the two together shows President Trump to be a solid .5” over Obama.

Optical illusion?
Editor Rob
I've not seen that...Trump has about 1cm of hair, Obama about 2-3mm.
Vijayan said on 6/Jun/18
wouldnt Obama be under 6'1 if he measured 6'1.5 in shoes? 6'1.5 in cm is 186.7 cm, and normal dress shoes about 2 cm. Wouldn't that make him 6'0.75? Obviously it could be in the morning though.
Canson said on 5/Jun/18
May have been 6’1” peak but 6’0.75 tops today in most cases

Could he have lost some height by 56?

The mid 50's is a time some men will start to lose a small fraction.

But a fit and virile man like Obama may still escape and head towards age 60 with minimal (2-3mm) loss.

Editor Rob
5ft 10-10.5 is possible
Canson said on 16/May/18
@Rob: that may be about as low as he falls 6’0.75 perhaps at a normal low. Maybe less at an extreme low. But I think at his peak he may have been closer to 6’1” or a solid 6’1
18Teen said on 14/May/18

Within what fraction of an inch below a height do you have to be at your absolute low to claim it?

Obviously if someone is 6'0.5 at their low then it's too far to claim 6'1, but if someone is 6'0.75 at their extreme low (after lifting weights and running), then can they claim 6'1?
Editor Rob
I think even if Obama reached 6ft 0.75 on a bad day, it would be very reasonable for him to say 6ft 1...but once you get half or 3/4 under, I think you are falling further away from being able to say 6ft 1.
Andrea said on 13/May/18
Yeah, Tunman. If he's under 6'1, I doubt it's going to be more than a very small fraction as he certainly always looked a textbook example of a 6'1 guy, to me, and one of the most genuine 6'1 celebrities on here, like you say.
Btw, that "roughly 6ft 1" figure doesn't come from his medical test, but from his press office, which I think was just giving a rough estimate about his height, so I wouldn't give much importance to it...
Tunman said on 11/May/18
Yeah,btw I understand the "roughly 6'1"as:
1)hardly over the mark nothing significant,in other words he can't be described as anything else
2)"we could say he's 6'1 as he's extremely close to it
Either way it won't be more than 1-2mms over or under the mark.One of the very genuine 6'1ers of this site.
He still managed to look very close to it by 55 maybe just more clearly 185,I doubt he lost anything more than 1/8"though.Not bad if we assume he smoked for many years of his life.
Canson said on 9/May/18
I think when he first came into office he was right at or near 6’1”. It said he was “roughly” 6’1. That could mean over as a strong 6’1” or slightly under as a weak 6’1”. By 2016 he was definitely under 6’1” by a tad
Raymond said on 8/May/18
I would say he is 6'1" at his lowest. He doesn't look much taller than Trump when they are in photos together, but Trump has been known to wear lifts. Otherwise, I would say there is nearly an inch between them.
cmillzz said on 5/May/18

Obama has a ton of camera position advantage over Jackman. If both had equal camera positioning, Jackman would've looked taller.

I don't think Obama is downplaying, although I can understand how 6ft 1.25 is a figure many would guess him at.
Vin said on 1/May/18

Ian555 said on 28/Apr/18
Rob is it possible that Obama could be closer to 6’2? When I see him with many tall celebrities, like Steph Curry and Hugh Jackman, both of which you listed at 6’2, he looks almost the exact same height as them. He always looked taller than 6’1 to me.
Editor Rob
To me he seemed at least an inch shy of Curry.
Canson said on 27/Apr/18
Likely was 6’1.5 in shoes like Rob said. It’s possible he lost height between 08 and 12. He doesn’t look significantly taller than Trump today but at a peak a solid 6’1” or a hair under is a possibility. It said “Roughly 6’1” which means he could’ve measured under the mark by a hair as well. People dont typically take that into account though

Obama was measured 6’1.5” once with shoes. So unless if it was a shoe + out of bed measurement, then 5’11.75” can be safely ruled out for him.

Shredder, you said it was a chart and NOT a stadiometer that you were measured with? Perhaps the chart was taped or otherwise attached to the wall too low... Did you see anybody else get measured who knew how tall they were?? That would probably be your answer. :)
The Shredder said on 6/Feb/18
MJKoP lol what I don't get is even for a dodgy measurement in shoes , how were they that far off the mark? I should have been like 5'5 3/4 at best
MJKoP said on 6/Feb/18
Shredder...nice story. Glenn had the exact same experience, except the doctor who measured his shorter turned out to be a quack. And then Rob turned out to be running a troll site. What are the chances. But his IRL friends see him at 5'9" or 5'10" and even Bigfoot thinks Glenn is 5'8", so who can argue with that?
The Shredder said on 5/Feb/18
MJKoP , it actually is a funny story and it's the reason I find out that my true height was only 5'4 1/2 at age 14. It's also when my interest in height really started to kick off.

story goes , I had just made 14 as it was summer , most likely maybe even just shy of 14 . Well I didn't know exactly how tall I was , I remember at 12 going on 13 I was told I was 5'4 ( don't remember exactly how I was measured ) and well I did assume I might have gotten taller , like 5'5 minimum or so.

Well I just happened to go to a pediatrician because it was like 6 months or a year at least and so I got there , they weighed me( Maybe 150 ish then ) and they told me to " Stand agianst the chart " ... Oh WOW , it's the BIG moment I thought! How tall am I exactly? ... So standing there in shoes that they didn't tell me to take off , hair sticking up and brushed back and the nurse not even putting the thing down on my head , well I hear ... " 5'6 and 1/2 , almost 5'7" ...

WOO HOO I thought! I grew , I'm going to be a tall guy maybe when I'm older!

After a few weeks or so , when the subject of height came up with my freinds and family , It came out of my mouth ... " Yeah , I'm like 5'6 , 5'7"! "

Ha ha , no your not they all told me . A friend of mine said , man I'm 5'5 and your no taller than me , maybe even shorter. My cousin who said he was 5'8 stood next to me and had inches over me , my sisters female friend who really was about 5'7 had a few inches on me.

Some were like " Dude your like 5'4 , what are you talking about? " yeah dude , like maybe 5'5".

Well about a month after , I happened to go see a Cardiologist for a check up. It was a better looking office and when I went the first thing they wanted was my height and weight , I didn't think much of it because I figured it would be similar to my other measurements ... Nurse: " Step on the scale " ... well what did you know? Roughly the same weight range within like 2 lbs. ... " Stand agianst the chart ( and take your shoes off) " ... Feeling the thing going down on my head , next thing I know ... " Okay Mr. you are ......... 5'4 and 1/2 "

" WHAT? " ... Miss , my other DR told me I was 5'6 , 5'7 " ... " Well somebody read it wrong or you must have been in boots. Would you like me to measure you again?" Me " Yes ".

No sir , you again are 5'4 and 1/2.

Okay , I'm 5'4 1/2 , it all adds up now. Too bad I went back a few months after and guess what? I was 5'5 1/2 , lol.
Junior Hernandez said on 4/Feb/18
6'1 is 185.4cm i would give Obama 185.5cm but for his peak. Kobe Bryant not to mention a solid 195cm guy who look solid 4" on Obama and yet Kobe is not a full 6'5. So my guess Obama had lost small fraction in his late 40s and look flat 185cm with Kobe.

I remember when I was 5'4 1/2 at 14 I went to another Doctors Office and they took my height in shoes and said ... 5'6 1/2 almost 5'7.

That must have been a very dodgy measurement because my shoes were only like average sneaker of about 1.25

I can practically smell G's curiosity being piqued from reading that. Expect a fb message from some random stranger innocently wondering who your pediatrician might've been. XD

Normally they measure and weigh people with clothes and shoes, and in the case of height they discount 2 centimetres or an inch, example (measured at 6'2 so they write down 6'1), I know of people measure this way at the doctor and medical tests

@MrTBlack: I wonder if all presidents are measured at Walter Reed. That’s actually in MD right across the line from DC. They say Trump was but they never disclosed his height. I know Clinton mentioned something about him being 6’2.5 in the morning so that’s a possibility too
MrTBlack said on 30/Jan/18

Im still pondering if that was a shoe or early morning measurement though.
Canson said on 29/Jan/18
@MrTBlack: I agree with you prob weak 6’1 6’0.5-.75. I think 6’1.5 shoes but peak maybe 6’1 is a good estimate. Maybe taller when he came into office
MrTBlack said on 28/Jan/18

He does tower over most people in his videos so the lowest I think he is is a weak 6’1” but 6’1.5” is maybe a super early morning height or shoe height.
Canson said on 27/Jan/18
Barack and Vernon Davis.

Davis measured 6’3.25 (confirmed morning measurement) but in person still looked a full 6’3” next to me. Davis has Obama by “about” 6cm here. I can’t see Barack less than 6’0.5 not higher than maybe 6’0.75 today given there could be a camera advantage with Davis possibly. Peak height may be 6’1” flat. He was said to be “roughly 6’1” when he came in office. That could mean 6’.75 as well or 6’ 5/8 or could mean 6’1 1/8. Doesn’t specify.

Canson said on 26/Jan/18
@MrTBlack: I actually thought he was shorter way back when but seeing him with Trump he’s at least his height and I’d buy him being 1/4” taller although that’s hard to see honesty but he has better posture than trump too. Trump’s height is wildly exaggerated. His son is about 6’3.5 barefoot if that and he claims 6’3 lol

Im assuming that 6’1.5” listing was taken less than an hour from waking up. Yeah I agree though, 6’0.75-6’1” for sure.

Yeh, trump is 6'3" in melania's stilettos. Come on, does the guy have to be delusional about everything? U know he lied about it 5o the nurse. When I go to the doctor they just ask me my height and give me the benefit. Because I'm an adult and fudging on height and weight at the doctor's office can cause real problems. If truth b told, a man at his age, who weighs over 230# and is only 6'1"(which he is), and also president, is just a big, loud mouth who happens to have an office shaped just like him (oval);-)

@MJKOP: anyone can lose a fraction at that age. We would be hard pressed to notice 1/4” off. So 6’0.75 is possible for him honestly whereas trump may be 6’0.5 or a hair less
Klapperschlangensindgeil21 said on 29/Dec/17
Look, if Obama was measured in the morning at 6 ft. 1/2” then he can’t sink anywhere below the 6 ft. 1” mark in the evening. That’s probably where that 6 ft. 1/2” measurement comes from, it was probably a morning height, but I just don’t see how he could ever get as low as 6 ft. 0.75” or lower.

I’ve met Vernon Davis before and he’s a legit 6’3” and he’s a tad over 2” taller than Obama. Davis could be on the stronger side possibly but if it is it’s like 6’3 1/8. Looked probably 3cm shorter than me in person and I’m 193.7ish at night
MJKoP said on 21/Dec/17
@Canson: No, the physical didn't describe him as "roughly 6'1"", such is a medical form which wouldn't include supplemental adverbs. That quote was apparently taken from PR agents working on behalf of Mr. Obama. I gather this was all before Obama entered office, so things such as his height weren't really top priority - hence why they gave a rather vague estimate.

The two white house physicals gave him 6'1" and 6'1.5". They can apparently round to the nearest quarter inch as GW Bush got 5'11.75 on his first term physical.
Klapperschlangensindgeil21 said on 19/Dec/17

I would say Obama can range anywhere between 6’0.5” to 6’0.75” these days especially he doesn’t really look taller with 6’0.5” Trump.
Canson said on 16/Dec/17
With Vernon Davis

Davis is a legit 6’3” guy in person not sure if 6’3.25 but def falls in between or at worst 6’3” flat but he edges President Obama by more than just a flat 2” more like 2.25 or 2.5”

He may have been 6’1” peak but do remember his 2008 White House physical had him at “roughly” 6’1 didn’t say over or flat just roughly meaning he could be 6’0.75 at a low or even 6’0.5 these days based on how he looks with Trump.

Editor Rob: thank u for your reply. Can you please tell me something. How is height measured for celebs? Like lets say someone in shoes stands for a mugshot n stands in good posture in shoes n his hair covers the 6 '2" mark. Then what would we call him? A safe approx 6'1"? Isnt it? Like in your pictures, when you stand in shoes, would u be looking almost 5 foot 10? And in some pictures u have a height scale superimposed on ur picture showing u as 5 '8.5". Now does that mean u r looking 5 foot 8.5 inches in the picture or is that scale set after adjusting perhaps 1.25 inches to 1.5 inches? Can you please explain to me the method?

Also Rob... can you confirm if the statues at madam tussaude are made to actual height or are they made couple on inches taller? I always have a feeling the museum authority adds 2 inches buffer to all the statues.

Obama in the madame tussaud looks easily 6 foot 4 to 4.5 inches with the shoes. So either they made him taller by 2 inches.
Editor Rob: if the person is in front of a height chart, usually if you see their eyes looking at the camera, you'll be able to tell if the camera is above or below their eyelevel. If it's above a bit, then the mugshot might be more accurate than if the camera was at the eyes or below the those cases, it might add 1/2 inch or even 2-3 inches!

Some celebs do agree to go along and have measurements taken, but I'm not sure they use a stadiometer, more a rough 'ruler on top of head beside tape measure' type measurement. In some case an actor won't agree, so they have to guess the height like us.

Also for a waxwork, the height might be taken in a pose that isn't standing military posture, so the waxwork itself might not be that accurate - they made the Mesut Ozil waxwork about 5ft 8, he lost some height in a slightly loose pose.
Warren said on 7/Dec/17

@Warren @Rob In those cases, normally they measure and weigh people with clothes and shoes, and in the case of height they discount 2 centimetres or an inch, example (measured at 6'2 so they write down 6'1), I know of people measure this way at the doctor and medical tests
Bego said on 4/Dec/17
Standing right next to 183cm Erdogan he seems only 1cm taller. I guess he is 186 in morning, and 184/184,5 at night. With good shoes he can look 188 or even 190.

Rob..seriously i want to tell u..obama is much taller than 6 1. I seriously think he is like 6 3 given from the statues they have of madam tussauds. Besides i think he looked taller than trump who claims to be 6 3. Maybe trump shrunk a bit now to 6 2. But obama is still 6 3. I felt obama in shoes was a neat 6 4. Meaning if he stood for a mugshot in shoes his hair would touch the 6 4 mark i think.please.tell. me.what u think.

Clinton was never actually 6'2". He's 5'11" today at 71.

Something is definitely fishy Rob, clearly President Obama is notably taller than the 6'1" he claims... as he always appears taller than Bill Clinton in person... I met Bill like 15 years ago and he looked comfortably 6'1.5" at least... maybe 6'2" in his younger years... so clearly Barack is very modest."

Bill Clinton is not 6'1 let alone 6'2. He is 5'11 zone nowadays weak 6'0 at best.
I know this because a former classmate of mine met him few years back and was only 3 inches smaller if even that as he leaned a bit in photo. And he was 5'9 tops. Obama looks 1.5 taller as has advantage in photo could look 2. Clinton barely taller than 5'10 and change Bush jr.

I don't think he's lost anything

@Rob: it wouldn’t surprise me if Barack is a normal 6’0.75 evening. Look at him with Vernon Davis. Davis is a good 6’3” but nothing higher than 6’3-6’3.25 range

I agree with Rob on this. 6'1" is a very fair listing for Obama. He's got a fairly lanky build. He's obviously tall but not towering or anything.
Slothee said on 23/Nov/17
Rob, what do you think Obama dips to late at night? 6’0 7/8”...? 6’1” even?
Editor Rob: at worse 6ft 0.75 after a long 12 hour day at the office.
Bego said on 22/Nov/17
Out of bed 186cm, at night 184,5 is my guess
JJ barea said on 22/Nov/17
Hi Rob, how tall would you say Malia Obama is. They say 185cm I was thinking more 182-183 range at best
Editor Rob: as tall as her Father? I'm not so sure about that...

Slim 185 said on 18/Nov/17
Rob, where do you think obama would stadiometre in the 90’s?

A: 185
B: 186

For me it’s B all the way.
Editor Rob: you could make a case for a prime Obama as 6ft 1 and a nickle.

No lifts... elevator shoes, even worse... look at this ankle
Johnson said on 15/Nov/17
@anon176 in lifts??? are you serious?
Canson said on 10/Nov/17
@Brett: well he has an official measurement of 6’1” so don’t know how they would make that up not to mention he’s 2.5” shorter than Vernon Davis who is 6’3-6’3.25
anon176 said on 9/Nov/17
Trump in lifts still shorter:

Dmeyer said on 8/Nov/17
Now Costner could bé 6'0,5-0,75 and Obama 6'0,75-6'1 but at Peak Costner not less than 6'1
Dmeyer said on 8/Nov/17
Probably 6'1,5 1 hour out if bed because 6'1,5 shoes will me 6'0,5-0,75 barefeet he seems taller

Obama has better posture than Costner but back to back in their prime it could be a coin toss. Both could pull off 186cm.
Dublin guy said on 30/Oct/17
The guy is legit 6'1. Always at least 2 inches taller than supposed 6 footers like DiCaprio and David Blaine and Drake.
John Cena said on 29/Oct/17
Rob who who will win the stadiometer Obama or Kevin Costner
Editor Rob: at times I'd have said Obama by a few mm's, but it's not certain.
Canson said on 25/Oct/17
@Slim: I can’t see him that tall. Maybe a strong 6’1 or 6’1 flat peak I can definitely see. Today 6’0.75 max next to Vernon Davis
Christian-6'5 3/8 said on 24/Oct/17
@Slim 6'

6'1.5" is pushing it imo. I think if he had a peak height it'd be 6'1" as listed and nowadays 6'0.75" If no height loss then 6'0.75" in the 90's and current.
Slim 6' said on 24/Oct/17
Honestly he was 186/6'1.5" in the 90's. He needs a peak and current.
Dreampuffe(5'9.5") said on 21/Oct/17
He really can be 6’1.25”. Never under the full 6’1”.
Sam said on 20/Oct/17
Similar case like Mark Gatiss, solid 6'1 maybe 6'1.25" with perfect posture so they look taller.
Canson said on 8/Oct/17
@Dreampuff 5’9.5: agreed Mark!
Eric (5'8") said on 8/Oct/17
first person i've known that thinks hes actually shorter than he really is lol
Heightist said on 6/Oct/17
I'm surprised he's listed as 6'1". I've seen him in person and trailed after him briefly back in 2007. He seemed about 5'11" to me - a good height, but not overly tall. He was seen as a "rock star" back in the day. A lot of people there shook his hand and spoke with him, but I didn't dare.
Dreampuffe(5'9.5") said on 6/Oct/17
This is just my opinion. I always loved Obama as president. There are a few things I disagreed with, but Obama has done so much awesome.
