Yeah I’m surprised tbh. Would have never thought he was tall, even when he was young.

He really does give a 6-0 impression.

That is wild
Jtm said on 12/Nov/19
I could easily buy 6'0 or 5'11.5 min peak after watching that 1988 video especially considering his terrible posture.
viper said on 10/Nov/19
Bernie really does look tallish in that 30 year old video.

Crazy

Come on Rampage.

6-2.5 is ridiculous for Trump.

Better chance he was 6-1.5 and his license says 6-2

Trump in his prime I don’t think was too far from 6ft3, there’s a case for 6ft2½
Jtm said on 9/Nov/19
BTW jack lemmon is 5'9 here despite his son claimed he was really 5'8.
Jtm said on 9/Nov/19
Donald Trump was "measured 6'3" by his doctor last year. As for his son, maybe his son isn't really 6'2.5 and that's just his height With shoes on or he could have measured his height With boots on for all we know. Maybe bernie was really 6'0 peak but I don't think his son's word or office is good enough for me to believe it.

Look at Bernie's posture in this video Here and the people he's interviewing...he's already probably lost some height by then, yet still looks a decent height, even with the poor posture.

177 cm today. 182 cm peak.
Canson said on 8/Nov/19
@Viper: today he’s prob only able to get 5’10 range standing straight
Jtm said on 7/Nov/19
Where is this evidence he was 6'0 peak?
Editor Rob
His own office and his son seem to claim that figure.

ANd Bernie wouldn't lie would he?
viper said on 4/Nov/19
So he's 6-0 If he stood up straight
Mickie said on 2/Nov/19
I don't know what his peak height was, but he looks like a guy who can't stand as tall as his younger years. I would've imagined he was 5'9" range today but I can accept 5'10". I really doubt he will ever be president, after the heart attack. Political opinions aside hopefully he stays healthy.

His posture is pretty bad. Two inches lost seems believable. 6’ish peak, 5’9.75”-10” today
BigS said on 1/Nov/19
Cardi B said he was 6’1” recently, I can see him still hitting 6 foot but with poor posture

@Viper

Look at his posture/hunch if he could stand up straight he looks like he'd gain 2" but he actually can't this is his natural posture now Click Here

Crazy, always though of Bernie as a 5’7-8 guy, I would never guess him as 5’11-6’
TheBat said on 31/Oct/19
Dang I didn't know he was once 6'0". I can definitely see 5'10" for him currently. Maybe 5'9.75" at the absolute lowest.
viper said on 31/Oct/19
I know a few older than him who havnt shrunk.

My 81 year old Uncle hasnt shrunk.

I figured no more than an inch, not 2
AndrewV said on 31/Oct/19
Looks at least a solid 3 inches shorter than Obama and decidedly average looking in all group pictures I've seen him in. A weak 5'10"/177cm seems likely, the 6' listing on google is definitely from his younger years.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 30/Oct/19
Viper he’s 78
Animus said on 30/Oct/19
Are there any material of him as a young man standing next to someone of known height?
viper said on 29/Oct/19
6-0 peak? 2 inch height loss?
Matt Marsden said on 29/Oct/19
Holy , Rob, I actually guessed this correctly! Bravo! Thanks for finally submittin this.
Editor Rob
Well better late than never, and you never know, his description in the future could well change...
Nik said on 29/Oct/19
T-A-L-L!
Duhon said on 29/Oct/19
He's really hunched over now. Could have been 6' in his younger days.
TwoWords555 said on 29/Oct/19
Rob, was 6ft seen as really tall in Bernie's young days?
Editor Rob
It would be a quite tall height in the 60's
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 29/Oct/19
Whoah!

I thought he was like 5ft8 tops!!
