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'".

@Viper:
Eh, 94 Crime Bill, cuts on welfare, outlawing gay marriage, committing perjury, etc. Then again, I was barely alive when he was first president so my memory is not too fond to say the least.

Bill was 6’1.5” peak 6’0” current.
Canson said on 4/Dec/20
@Viper: maybe Clinton was better. See Reagan was the first president for me and he was good. But Trump is by far the worst.
viper said on 4/Dec/20
Bill Clinton clearly, clearly the best democrat president since JFK imo

He was pragmatic and could work with the Republicans who had both the house and senate at the time.

Absolutely booming economy later on in the 90s
viper said on 4/Dec/20
Gotta disagree Canson.

Bush and Obama back to back were not good, to put it mildly. I'll give Obama some credit for slowly getting us back on track after after Bush torpedoed the economy.

At best Obama is better than Carter and Bush Jr. in my lifetime.
Canson said on 1/Dec/20
@Vincent: I agree with what you said that Obama is one of the best of my lifetime.
Vincent Caleb said on 30/Nov/20
@Canson:
Perhaps there never was a perfect president. Even the greatest like Lincoln, Washington, and Jefferson had a few issues. I’m 27, so I haven’t had as many chances to vote as you, but I have voted in 2012 and especially 2020.

@Slim 6’1”:
I highly doubt he was any under 6’1” peak, and he really never looks as low as 184 even today. Heck, I struggle to see 184.5.
Nicole Feusi said on 30/Nov/20
I saw him personally live and close with good posture standing beside my husband i would not ruled out 6ft 2in for his peak. He looks not shorter compare with the The Rock for example.Also by the way my husband is exactly 188,5 cm at 7 am, we do this meassure him once again two times last week and he is above 45 years old.
Canson said on 29/Nov/20
@Vincent: as far as being a good president, there’s never been a perfect one in my lifetime. I’m almost 39 years old so I’ve had 6 in my lifetime. Everyone has done something (in each persons perception) that has gone against some people’s beliefs or affected certain groups. I’m of the same. I try hard not to get into politics and you seem a lot like me where you call it raw and call it how you see it especially with the state this country is currently in. I’ve been more vocal of late (only in 2020) and really only about the current US occupant. There are facts and then some others who provide opinions (which you know exactly what I’m talking about) that aren’t true

@Canson:
Whether he was a good president is up to interpretation and opinion(mine is that he was wonderful), but being a good human being is something that Obama quite clearly is. This video of him always warms my heart:

6’1” for Obama. I was trying to stay out of politics on this site, but those comments were getting annoying.
Vincent Caleb said on 29/Nov/20
@RichardC:
Obama will eventually lose an inch, but at his current age it is unrealistic. The average person of his age will usually have lost a small fraction, perhaps none. Considering how well he takes care of his body, he is less likely to have lost a small fraction. He also never looked 6’2”.
RichardC said on 27/Nov/20
@Vincent Caleb That's not realistic. Humans lose height whether they like it nor not, even if you're fit. 6'2 peak, 6'1 current is reasonable.
Vincent Caleb said on 26/Nov/20
@Slim:
Obama is a very healthy 59 year old man. He hasn’t lost height. He maintained a healthy weight, good posture, and takes great care of himself, so there isn’t any reason he should have lost height. Looks the same 6’1” he always did.
Canson said on 26/Nov/20
@Vincent Caleb: well said and very true. However, you have to consider the sources. One of which (you know who I’m talking about) doesn’t even live in the US and it wouldn’t surprise me if they’ve never been to the US. That’s the case with the majority of people who make those types of comments here on this site. They aren’t even US citizens and either have never been or only been fewer times than you can count on one of your hands.
Vincent Caleb said on 25/Nov/20
Obama was a good man and a good president, despite some of the things people are saying about him on other pages.
6’1”
Slim 6'1" said on 20/Nov/20
185 peak
184 current
Vincent Caleb said on 18/Nov/20
Might be the healthiest man ever elected president. 6’1” easy peak. Average guess agrees. Also a very caring person from what I have seen. Doesn’t have to inflate his height to put himself above others like...
N.C. Ranger said on 16/Nov/20
Barrack Obama really looks a very solid 6’ 1” most of the time. It is possible that he was a little over it when he was younger.
Canson said on 15/Nov/20
@Jdubbz and J2Frenzy: 😂 😂

It’s funny that the current president’s footwear looks puffier these days at times 😂 😂. Although he can look what Rob lists him here at times
J2Frenzy said on 15/Nov/20
@Jdubbs yeah, I don’t know why THAT might be
Jdubbz said on 14/Nov/20
It's funny how a 6'1 guy looks taller than a "6'3" guy. I guess height works in mysterious ways.

To reconstruct it again this day with Barack in summer 2018.
This week my husband was measured twice at 2pm and both times he was 6f 1.5in (187.0 cm) tall. Both times he was waken up at 6 am.
So he was 2cm taller than Barack back then, Barack was still 6ft 0.5in (185cm) barefoot tall at 2 p.m or slightly under it.
So Barack stands up at 6ft 1.25inch (186.5cm) today, so the peak height should or must be around 6f 1.5inch.

Peak height isn’t morning height though. It’s your peak afternoon height. I can’t see him under 6’1” afternoon height peak but maybe 6’0.75 when you all met him which makes sense

First time I've seen you bring up anything political, lol.
mmaFan2020 said on 11/Nov/20
Rob would you consider making a page for all the presidents of the US, (just a single page with them all listed, at least the ones that can be verified)

have them laid out all on the same page from tallest to shortest (they should be in height they were when they actually served the presidency and beside it could display peak height)
Canson said on 11/Nov/20
@Sandy: lol I wonder who that is? But I agree. But some of the others before they were too
Miss Sandy Cowell said on 7/Nov/20
Barack Obama was an infinitely better president than someone else I can think of!

6ft1. 😃👍
Canson said on 5/Nov/20
@Editor Rob: yea but he’s listed 6’7 on Wikipedia and 6’8 (shoes) when he played. He wouldn’t have been listed barefoot. Probably just a good 6’7” guy
Editor Rob
he could look 6-7 taller than Obama, but then angles as we know can exaggerate moments.
Canson said on 4/Nov/20
Forgot the link

@Editor Rob: Barkley is nowhere near his listing compared to how Obama looks. His peak height 6’4 5/8 (6’4.75 may be ok for lunchtime or late morning) seems more believable and he looks closer to 6’4” with Kellogg now. Wouldn’t surprise me if he’s only lost maybe 1/4 or 3/8 and is 6’4.25 now

Click Here
Editor Rob
See the point Here when he stands tall, that's a bigger difference, really can look near what he claimed, at least 6ft 7-8...he claimed "6'8 to be exact..But I tried to " play" like I was 6'11 back in the day"
Canson said on 4/Nov/20
@Editor Rob: how much would you say with Clark Kellogg? I could see a solid 6” between them
Slim 6'1" said on 3/Nov/20
Flat 6’1” prime
184 today
pov said on 3/Nov/20
Most legit 6'1 ive seen along with Cristiano Ronaldo.
Visitor said on 29/Oct/20
concerning shoe size... I regularly wear at least 2 pairs of shoes that are marked "45" (although mine are EU 45, and US *11*, not 12...?) . They fit snugly. But I'm nowhere near 6'1"... except if I'm measured while wearing those shoes maybe.

I just mean shoe size doesn't necessarily mean anything. My brother is shorter than I am as well, but he wears a larger shoe and has larger hands. We're all different.
slothee said on 29/Oct/20
Rob, do you think Obama dipped under 6’1” by the end of the day? In other words, is he a strong, flat, or weak 6’1”?
Vincent Caleb said on 29/Oct/20
I agree with rob and the average guess. He is honest about his height unlike 45, although that doesn’t really matter.
Chris Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 27/Oct/20
Rob, do you think is possible ten years back Obama was reallya flat 6'1 1/4?
Editor Rob
11am he might have got it.
Nicole Feusi said on 24/Oct/20
And his shoe size is 45 and 12 in US. Either he has big hands and he was standing with good posture and in good shape. He seems like a nice person, that was my impression of Barack.
My height is 5ft 8.5in at 7 am.
Nicole Feusi said on 24/Oct/20
We saw Barrack Obama after the funeral in Bern of Kofi Anan his friend in Summer 2018.
He was then after that in the morning at 2 pm in the mountains near Leukerbad on a bearded vulture showing and there were a lot nature lovers.He was dressed decently in expensive brown shoes and the shoes looked like specially made for him. We did not recognize him at first but when he spoke we recognized his voice. Also he was logically still in a sad mood, so we did not speak to him either.but when I could not see the bearded vulture with the binoculars and I wanted to ask someone he approached me gently and explained where the bearded vulture was.And it was his typical calm and pleasant voice and the clear explanation, as he always discussed.
He was only slightly smaller than my husband who also had similarly high shoes like Barrack. My husband was measured at 7 o'clock in the morning slightly over 188cm tall about 2 months ago and this twice by his doctor on different days.
I am therefore sure that Barrack is still 186cm tall and is rather 186.5 cm tall.In his peak i think 6ft2inch is very possible.
Tunman said on 10/Oct/20
Rob,how tall is Kamala Harris?She looks way taller than the 5'2 she's listed at.I might be wrong but with Obama I feel she could push up to 5'4 (looking 5'6 in heels)
Editor Rob
at a glance I wouldn't have guessed her under 5ft 3, see in heel with Sean Penn.
5ft 3-3.5 might be more believable than 5ft 2...
Here she is in maybe similar heels to Zerlina Maxwell who claimed 5ft 5.

Canson said on 27/Sep/20
@Slim: I think 187-187.5 out of bed peak and 185.5ish peak. Textbook 6’1” who didn’t dip under and 6’1.75 out of bed

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.

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.

Agreed Rampage. Peak 187-187.5 out of bed 185.5 afternoon

Slim, 185.5cm is perfect for Obama peak. But I think much earlier in the day he may very well have gotten 186cm range

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

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

@Ian555
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!

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.

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.

1/4 inch loss is possible, but he may not have lost anything beyond a few mm's.

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
Agreed
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
@Canson
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

An almost 6ft 1 peak might be possible for him. Today, 5ft 11.75-6ft range.

He's 185 cm flat now, nearer 186 cm peak.

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.

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.

@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

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
Legit 6’1
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 30/Jun/18
He edged out a currently 184cm Trump
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

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.

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
@EditorRob

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
@Canson
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.

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.

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.

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

How do u think this comments Rob?

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
Editor Rob
I don't know if they would knock height off for shoes. They didn't do this for Jenny.

The nurse said to her she could leave them on...you'd never catch me leaving them on 😸

@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
@Canson


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
@Canson

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.

@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
MrTBlack said on 26/Jan/18
@Canson

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);-)

Tump 6'3 is a joke. Though i do believe he weighs around that.


Nah....even at Rob's current listing, he's almost undoubtedly well over 239.

Trump is 6'3" 239 lbs , We have to give Obama 6'3 1/2 " 140 lbs
Pete said on 16/Jan/18
As you age you tend to shrink in stature..Doctors I've spoke to say the only thing that get bigger with age on men is your feet and your ears..Trump next to Obama is slightly shorter and if Obama is a legitimate 6'1" than the liar Trump again is maybe 6' which would make him obese weight wise!!Hard to tell he lies so much,not a 7'er??
MAD SAM said on 16/Jan/18
He’s 183-184 cm now but he definitely must have been 186 cm at his peak
Warren said on 13/Jan/18
184-185, maybe like 184.5 today
Mark said on 11/Jan/18
It depends if Trump and Obama were wearing different-sized footwear.
Paul NS (6ft0.5) said on 6/Jan/18
He could be a weak 6'1 today
HonestSlovene said on 5/Jan/18
He looks extremely close (if not the same) in height next to Trump but I guess there are a lot of diehard O'bummer fans here so Rob is being diplomatic about Trump being 6'0.5".
Canson said on 2/Jan/18
It says “roughly” 6’1” and mentions shoes and clothes then 6’1.5 my guess 6’1.5 in shoes and 6’0.75 barefoot. Looks a 2+” shorter than Vernon Davis
Canson said on 2/Jan/18
@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'm convinced he's a weak 6'1" rather than solid or strong.

Obama is not quite 6'1" today.

I don't see anything to suggest he's dropped below 6'1", or dropped any height at all for that matter...Barack Obama is very lean and healthy - both physically and mentally(see, I *can* be positive when talking politics!).
Beau said on 28/Dec/17
When I was in London in May,2011, I saw him outside of Westminster Abbey and he looked a solid 6'1".
Although his posture and bearing, may make him appear taller.
