How tall is Bill Clinton

Bill Clinton's Height

6ft 0 (182.9 cm)

Peak height was 6ft 1 ¾ (187.3 cm)
Former American President. Officially listed in office at 6ft 2.5. A morning measurement maybe, prior to that he was described 6ft 2. He looks to have lost near 2 inches by late 60's. However in 2018 a Times journalist said "Clinton says he's just half an inch down from his prime of 6ft 2in, though when I stand next to him, he feels closer to my height of (nearly) 6ft".
But, you know, every year this is so humbling for me. Most days I wake up and I'm 6 foot 2½ inches, and I'm halfway tall.

6ft flat today looks probable, near 2in loss…edged by Bush Sr., Bob Dole and Trump in his prime (all operating somewhere between 188-189cm zone)

@Rob I noticed the downgrade and is Bill under 6'0 now he's pushing late 70's
Editor Rob
Don't think he's quite sub 6ft. Might be at an age where he's carrying himself looser, but still measuring taller.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 8/Jun/23
Another one I was expecting at some point...
Gerald S said on 18/May/23
Agreed Rob, so could Clinton please get a downgrade?

On the Donald Trump page I also posted a photo last month, showing Trump as taller than Clinton.
Editor Rob
I think it's been coming a while!

I think a bit like Caine, the 6ft 1.75 for Clinton could be closer to the truth.
Gerald S said on 11/Apr/23
Rob, can we compromise on 6’1.75” peak for Clinton?

I’m drawn to 6’1.5” peak; Clinton and Jacques Chirac were basically the same height in the 1990s, and 6’2.25” George Bush Senior had close to an inch on Chirac in the 1980s. All other users here also seem to agree on a weak 6’2” for Clinton.
Editor Rob
If I was going to change it would be 1.75, but I never decided on it.
berta said on 27/Jan/23
i read somwehere that he had 48 in shoes size ( europe) thats 14,5 in us size. That seems alot for a guy with not the biggest bone structure. My grandfather, uncle and dad all have/ had 47 ( 14) at similar height and i think that is very big, but 48? I have 15 ( 49,5) but are muthc taller. I have a feeling he is a guy that " round up" on most thing. real height 187,5 ( 189 out of bed) shoe size 46-47 and claims 48. Just my guess on how he works.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 14/Jan/23
I’m not convinced he was 188cm at his low.
berta said on 4/Jan/23
could have been 188 but i think 6´1 3/4 could be closer for his peak. and the 189 wasmorning measurement. Today he can look 182 but still measure atleast 6 foot.
Herbert said on 10/Dec/22
Rob, I agree that Clinton definitely needs a downgrade and Bush an upgrade. Bush was without doubt taller.

This below photo proves it

Bush: 6’2.25”
Clinton: 6’1.5”
Abdul-DK said on 6/Dec/22
187 peak

182 today.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 22/Nov/22
@IceCold1: 6ft1¾ could be on the money for Clinton while Bush Sr. was more likely a 6ft2¼ guy.

Clinton at worst: 6ft1½
Bush Sr. at best: 6ft2½

But both guys claimed 6ft2 and generally looked around it so a full inch might be stretch...
IceCold1 said on 11/Oct/22
How Bush and Clinton are listed the same height? Personally i think 6'1.75 for Clinton
Almost 180cm guy said on 2/Oct/22
I'm afraid, Rob, that Clinton really needs a downgrade to 187cm in his prime. Take a look at his photos with Nelson Mandela from 1994: Click Here Click Here Click Here
Mandela was then already 76 years old and even at that time he didn't look like a two inch shorter than Bill! I think Clinton at 48 couldn't have lost anything yet, but by the end of his second term at 55 he probably lost 1/4 to 1/2 inch. In my opinion, 6ft 1.75 for Clinton and 6ft 2.25 for H. W. Bush are better lists than keeping both of them at 6ft 2 when Clinton was looking quite shy for this mark and H. W. Bush looked over it most of the time. Rob, I think Bill needs an update, also his current height.
Canson said on 2/Aug/22
@Rampage: possible that Bush was 6’2.25” and Trump 6’2”. Clinton could be the one at 6’1.75 or 6’1.5” peak. But I will say that I agree with Christian in that Bush was taller than both guys.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 31/Jul/22
Disagree Christian, Bush was more likely a bit over 6ft2 (consistently 1in+ taller than legit 6ft1 men). Trump as well in the 80's could look that, 6ft2 flat is fine but not under. Clinton I've always said was probably a guy that fell a little below the 6ft2 mark by afternoon/evening, solid 187cm
ChristianAnthonyPerkins said on 7/Jun/22
Trump and Clinton were both 6'1.75" peak. With Bush Sr. I coud see the full 6'2" peak but no higher.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 7/Jun/22
6ft1¾ is definitely something worth considering with 6ft2½ straight out is achievable off that. From there, I'd give Bush Sr. and Trump 6ft2¼ (w/h 6ft3 straight out)
5'7 and a bit said on 24/May/22
6'1 7/8 - 6'2
Sinclair said on 19/May/22
Rob, maybe 6’1.5” peak?
Vincent Caleb said on 23/Apr/22
Weaker 6’2” IMO
IceCold said on 13/Apr/22
Bush Sr could be over 6'2 peak, and not dipping under 6'2
IceCold said on 13/Apr/22
Maybe 6'2 is a lunchtime listing, and 6'1 5-8 - 3/4 evening/night
IceCold said on 30/Mar/22
If he is admited to wakes up at 6'2½, why he is listed 6'2? 187 cm should be better, considering he looked at most this next to Bush
Sinclair said on 25/Mar/22
Well Rob, if Chirac edged out Clinton in the 90s, Clinton definitely topped out at no more than 6’1.5”, maybe even a few mm below that mark.
Sinclair said on 20/Mar/22
Rob, who do you think has the edge in this video, Chirac or Clinton?

Click Here
Editor Rob
Very close, but maybe if measured Chirac at that stage actually could get a few mm more than Bill
Sinclair said on 15/Mar/22
Rob, who would you say was taller out of Clinton and Jacques Chirac?

Whilst rewatching videos featuring Chirac and Clinton from the 1990s, I actually now find them nearly inseparable in height. Perhaps Clinton and Chirac both peaked at 6’1.5”, with Chirac maybe having at better chance of being 6’1.75” at one point. In my opinion, this comparison is much more difficult than Chirac vs d’Estaing.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 25/Feb/22
Turner's been listed 6ft2. Anywhere between 6ft1-2 looks right for his peak
Sinclair said on 23/Feb/22
Rob, how tall would you say Ted Turner was at peak? 6’1”?

In photos, Clinton had about an inch on Turner.
Editor Rob
Strong 6ft 1
Rowan182cm said on 17/Feb/22
187-188cm peak, 183.5 these days
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 2/Feb/22
Yeah overall I’m not as convinced that Clinton was still at 6ft2 by dinner time like Trump or Bush Sr. First half of the day for sure but dropped a little bit under it. 6ft1¾ is a strong possibility.

Rob, I also have Romney at 6ft2, Trump at 6ft2⅛, Bush Sr. at 6ft2¼ and Bob Dole at 6ft2½. Also Matt Gaetz (I know - funny to put him in with these guys) I think is 6ft1½

Also there’s Tom Cotton whose listed 6ft5 - I reckon he’s about that mark, dwarfs everyone including Trump. He actually claimed on Twitter to be the same height as the Rock!
Canson said on 1/Feb/22
@Rapha: afternoon height I’d say weak 6’2 and maybe he’s a guy who can measure 6’1 7:8 at lunch or 6’1.75 at lunch and dips to 6’1 5:8 or 6’1.75
SportsHeight said on 1/Feb/22
Rob, I would love to see a page for Madeleine Albright, former U.S. Secretary of State and Ambassador to the United Nations in the 1990s under Clinton. She is often cited as having been 4'10", sometimes even 4'9". It is exceedingly rare to have someone anywhere near that height in such positions of power. In the absence of a page, does this seem like the right range for her?
Rapha said on 31/Jan/22
Hi Rob

Would you go as low as 6 ft 1.5 inches for him peak ? I can’ t see him as tall as 6 ft 2 ( beside straight out of bed measurement)
Editor Rob
Weak 6ft 2 peak? There's always an argument for that figure.
Arch Stanton said on 20/Jan/22
Any guesses for Epstein and Ghislaine? I thought Epstein looked about 5 ft 10 with Andrew Click Here Click Here but with Bill here he looks closer to 6ft Click Here With Trump he can look 5 ft 11. Ghislaine I would have thought 5 ft 6-7. She looks a good 5 ft 7 here, Naomi Campbell is dropping height. Click Here but then with Trump who looks peak height 6'2 here looks much smaller Click Here nothing over 5 ft 6 there.
Editor Rob
5ft 10 and 5ft 6-6.5 might be possible.

Bob Dole Rest in peace aged 98. Ran against Bill Clinton in 1996. I think you should make a page on him Rob.

186.5-187 peak , 182.5-183 nowdays .a 4cm shrinkage is quite alot even for a 75 years old man.

6´1 1/2 peak and measured like he sad 189 out of bed. Today he can look legit 6 foot most of the time.
Yohandas Lee said on 19/Oct/21
Rob, do you think both Mr. Schwarzenegger and Clinton in their prime be about the same height?
Editor Rob
roughly, but would still give Bill an edge.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 19/Oct/21
Editor Rob: I think with Clinton, there is a case for him being 6ft 1.75 rather than a solid 6ft 2 guy

I agree with that but no less. I do think that 6ft2½ quote carries some weight in that he may have measured a bit over 6ft2 shortly after rising. I've said it before, I don't Bill was a guy that maintained 6ft2 at low but dropped a bit under it after a hard day's graft solving the world's problems!

On the contrary, I think the 6ft2¼ mark should be strongly argued for Bush Sr.

hey rob, about clinton, were you alive during his presidential terms? just wondering?. also i think for your youtube videos, you should post a picture of you at 14, because you said you stopped growing at 14.
Editor Rob
yeah I'd have been 16 when Clinton first became President.

I have surprisingly little photos in teenage years.

Rob, if Clinton was 6ft1.75/6ft2, how tall does John Major look next to him in this clip?

Click Here
Editor Rob
Near 6ft there
Sinclair said on 22/Jul/21
Rob, how tall would you say Bob Dole was at peak?

I’d say 6’2”. He looked the same height as Clinton at the 1996 Presidential Debates, when Dole was 73. It is not uncommon to have a lost a few inches by your seventies, so maybe Dole was even taller than 6’2” as a younger man. As it’s Dole’s 98th birthday today, I feel now would be a great time to create a page for him.
Editor Rob
maybe stronger 6ft 2 range in 70's
David Tang said on 26/Jun/21
rob would you consider 2-3 hours out of bed real height that you should claim.
Editor Rob
it's the kind of range many would get if they have a 9-10am appointment for a physical
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 24/Jun/21
Editor Rob: generally I wouldn't list somebody at out of bed, I'm thinking at least having been awake a few hours. Maybe Clinton did once get 6ft 2.5 early in the morning and that is what he meant.

Within an hour of waking up I could see him getting close to it. The claim carries more weight than. I've looked again and I think 6ft2 is still an ok place for Bill and consider moving Trump a little north of it, maybe by a quarter. In the 80-90's, Donald seemed the more stonewall 6ft2
David Tang said on 15/Jun/21
he is tall. maybe 6'2.5 was his morning height. rob would you consider morning height "acceptable". 6'1/2 now probably.

berta said on 25/Mar/21
i can agree with average guess. 187,5 is what he looked at peak. weak 6´2. a guy like bush was easy 1 cm taller maybe 1,5 buy i think he could have been almost 189 at peak and didtn bother with the fraction
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 23/Mar/21
Clinton looked 6ft2 often enough so this listing is still ok...but Bush Sr. seriously needs an upgrade, possibly up to 6ft2½
Almost 180cm guy said on 4/Mar/21
I have serious doubts that Clinton really did have a full 6ft 2. Here are two of his photos with Benjamin Netanyahu from 1996: Click Here Click Here
I can't even see a three inch difference between them and Clinton couldn't have been less than 6ft 1.5 then so Netanyahu really looked near 5ft 11. Clinton also made Tony Blair looked a good 6ft, for example in these photos from 1999: Click Here Click Here
Or on those from 2000: Click Here Click Here Click Here Click Here
Overall seeing Clinton in 1992-2001 (when he was 46-55) I'm really not sure if he had a full 6ft 2, maybe 187 is a better fit for him. Clinton really made Blair looked full 6ft, George W. Bush looked not below 181 cm, Netanyahu like 5ft 11 and George H W Bush could look over 6ft 2. Rob, which is a better chance you will upgrade one of them or intend to give Clinton a downgrade to 6ft 1.75?
Editor Rob
there are many who would agree that Clinton in his heyday could have been 6ft 1.75, and maybe when he says 6ft 2.5, that really is his early morning height.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 16/Feb/21
- Obama and Clinton entered office at their peak and Barack has clearly held on to his height through his 50’s, I doubt more he’s shipped more than 0.5-1cm. Clinton by the end of his run was looking shorter and more haggard.

- Bush Sr. entered office close enough to his peak, still edged Clinton at the end of his four years.

- Reagan, Biden and Trump were all down from their peak entering office. Biden has done better than the other two though.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 14/Feb/21
Clinton was anywhere between 187-188cm range peak. 6ft2 is still an ok listing. But Bush Sr. needs an upgrade I think. Close to 189cm
5'10 Dude said on 12/Feb/21
Do you think that Clinton's health related issues contributed to his significant height loss Rob. I think that his peak height could have been a weak 6'2, but no less. I think that George H.W. Bush edged him out. Clinton however was more heavyset.
ChaosControl 6'2 1/2 said on 9/Feb/21
@Vincent but I think Trump will inflate Barron to 6’10, then say that’s close enough to 7’0 to call him that, then we look up his height online and it says 2.13 metres, and we’re all confused cause he’s clearly well below it, then Trump censors us for spreading fake news and downgrading his “totally legit” republican super-giant son
Vincent Caleb said on 6/Feb/21
I’m not sure I know what Barron will claim though. He may not be an inflator like his father. He seems more shy than some of the other Trump kids as well.

Highly Unlikely he is that short.
slim 6'1 said on 31/Jan/21
Got him at weak 6’2” for peak
rm said on 20/Jan/21
I met him in 2007 or thereabouts at a book signing for his book. I was stunned how small he was. I've known people who were for sure 6ft 2" barefoot. No way was Clinton over 6 ft by comparison, and he was wearing shoes, of course. He was more like 5'11" or less. He had lost a lot of bulk too. I'm 5'9" and know many of my friend's heights between 5'10" and 6'2" , so I think I'm a pretty good judge.
ChaosControl 6'2 1/2 said on 16/Jan/21
@Canson Barron Trump I reckon will be 6’8-6’9, will claim 6’10-6’11 and Trump will call him 7’0
Canson said on 4/Jan/21
@Vincent: lol it exposes the entire family. Heaven only knows what Barron’s listed height will be via his father’s inflation and ridiculous 6’3” claim. Even funnier that his “6’5” son has at least a good 3” if not more on him yet he claims 6’3”. He would’ve been better off claiming his peak height of 6’2 today and just saying he lost an inch due to old age lol. I mean 6’1.5 and 6’1 guys are starting to noticeably edge him out and it’s become a topic of discussion that he does it to skirt the system with his weight lol.
Almost 180cm guy said on 30/Dec/20
I wonder when Clinton might have lost his first fraction. For sure in 1992 and 1993 when he was 46-47 he was still close to his peak height, I doubt he would have lost anything by then, but it could only be a matter of a few years. Here are some of his photos alongside Benjamin Netanyahu from 1996: Click Here Click Here Click Here Click Here Click Here Click Here Click Here Click Here
Clinton was only 50 at the time, so he could lost a maximum of 1/4 inch, and Netanyahu at 47 couldn't lost anything yet. I can't see more than three inches of difference between them, I'd say Netanyahu might have looked about 5ft 11 next to Clinton. Rob, which is more likely, 6ft 1.75 for Clinton's peak height or 5ft 10.75 for Netanyahu?
Vincent Caleb said on 19/Dec/20
I laughed my a** off when I read Eric’s wife comment. She pretty much exposed him as a height inflator. Thing is, I don’t think she is much off 5’11”, maybe a quarter inch rounded up.
Canson said on 19/Dec/20
@Christian: I would say the same. HW may have been 6’2.25 peak and round down. I’m still mystified (well not really) by the former poster Yao is 7-8 saying he was max 6’1” lol in his days in the WH
Christian 6'5 3/8" said on 18/Dec/20
@Canson & Vincent
All I know is that GHWB was most likely the tallest out of the 3. That also seems to be the general consensus, based on the posts here,
Canson said on 16/Dec/20
@Christian: that’s possible. Clinton entered office at 46 I think so it’s possible he was down 1/4” by then and was 6’1.5”. I don’t rule out he and Trump being the same peak

@Vincent: more than likely a legit shoe claim. Maybe a best case Trump would get to 6’2.75 best case out of bed or 6’2.5 if he dropped to 6’1.75”. It seems to be a thing that runs in the Trump family so I would say the latter. And looking at his sons, Christian may be right about 6’1.75. I don’t rule that figure out. One son is 6’3.5 with a 6’5 claim and the other 5’11 and change with a 6’1 claim. His wife also lies about her height. Unfortunately his son’s wife outed them when she said her height was shoeless. Not to mention Trump had 6’2 on his license before. I agree with Rampage too that there’s a difference with Clinton and HW but I can’t see Trump being over 6’2” peak

@Tall in the Saddle: excellent post and great pics there!
Vincent Caleb said on 15/Dec/20
I could buy those figures, but it would be the highest I would go for Clinton and the lowest I would go for Trump. I think if measured, Trump would have the edge, but those are definitely arguable figures.

6’2.25” is possible for HW, while 6’2” flat is pretty good for Trump. At his peak 6’3” isn’t a ridiculous claim. Trump would measure close to it out of bed, and would get it in a 1 inch sneaker. At his current of 183-184, it is quite idiotic to make such a claim. Probably would hurt his ego admitting he shrunk.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 15/Dec/20
Bush Sr I think for definite was a bit over 6ft2 while I think Trump had a chance of it in the 80’s-90’s...there aren’t any photos of them though.
Christian 6'5 3/8" said on 14/Dec/20
I've always thought that Trump and Clinton were both the same at peak of 6'1.75", but that's just my own opinion. Many may disagree.
Canson said on 14/Dec/20
@Rampage and Vincent: I agree with both of you. HW may have been 6’2.25” but Trump wouldn’t have been I doubt. He looked a solid 6’2”, however, more often than not. Clinton, all things considered, would end up around 6’1.5 or .75 like you both said. In HW’s case, this is one of the rare occasions where someone could be slightly under listed. That’s something I also say about Current Hulk Hogan. I can see him as high as 6’3.25 or as low as 6’2.75 perhaps but I lean more toward 6’3 to 6’3.25 range. On the other hand, peak Hogan is over listed imho. 6’5.5 would be a better listing and I see his afternoon as 6’5.25 peak. I do wonder if Clinton claimed a shoe height
vastlybetter566 said on 13/Dec/20
Old picture of Trump with president Bill Clinton. Probably from the late 90's or so.

With Trump wearing a red hat making it tough to assume his height, Clinton looks slightly taller than Trump here. I assume that Trump probably has a higher eye level than Clinton. Maybe Clinton was a more solid 6ft2 than Trump?

Click Here
Vincent Caleb said on 11/Dec/20
I am starting to think there was 3/4 between the two. It could often look like an inch even in Bush’s older age. If Clinton was 6’1.75”, then I’d have to say 6’2.5” for Bush, but I think Clinton was 6’1.5” and Bush a strong 6’2”.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 9/Dec/20
6ft2¼ belongs to Bush sr. and possibly Trump. Clinton was edged by both men. 6ft1¾ is likelier
Presidents_height said on 4/Dec/20
6’ 2.25” peak looked as tall as Bush Sr. and taller his VP Al Gore who was 6’ 1.5” range.
Tall In The Saddle said on 3/Dec/20
Of course, when a celeb's height is overstated or rounded up in the first place, only to see them also experience legitimate and perhaps above average height loss, there will be a questionable gap between their claimed peak and their current (ala Clint Eastwood).

I'm firming on a more likely 6'1.5" peak for Clinton with a possible 6'1.75" max. on the outside.

If he was 6'1.5" peak with a height loss of about 1.5", that would put Bill at about 6' flat. Primarily due to heart disease, remedied by a quadruple bypass and later stents, Clinton's health has hit some deep troughs over the years, in which he has appeared literally emaciated at different times. Apparently, his heart disease was due very much in part to poor eating over many years. At least as president, it is claimed he'd exercise but then he'd hit the fast food afterward. I viewed a range of photos and this one appears, on average, reasonably indicative of how Clinton appeared alongside he likes of Obama and Biden.

He wasn’t as solid a 6ft2 guy as Bush Sr., Trump or Romney
Jtm said on 1/Dec/20
Becoming more likely that 6’1.5 peak is closer to the truth but if Pitt could get away with being listed 5’11 and Matt damon 5’’10 then I have no problem with the 6’2 peak listing
Canson said on 29/Nov/20
@RJT: maybe it was his health that caused height loss sooner. Bush seemed to do well with his height even through his time in office. If he had lost any, it means Clinton already had by then

@Editor Rob: is it possible his 6’2.5 claim is a shoe height? That may explain why he looked shorter than Bush. A peak Donald Trump can give the same or slightly taller impression
Editor Rob
it could be a shoe height

After looking all of these pics where older H.W Bush edged him out, shouldn't Clinton get downgrade or H.W Bush get upgrade?

Looking back at Clinton's history with his words E.G the claim he only lost half inch and his infamous scandal, not sure whether to take his words.
RJT said on 25/Nov/20
Might need a 1/8 or 1/4 downgrade for peak

68 years old George HW Bush edged him out in 1992.
Average Heighted Male said on 25/Nov/20
Really 6foot for his recent height!!!?!?! He has to be more 6'1.5' now. Sure he's 74 and older, maybe slouching more, but just a flat 6 foot seems low. Peak height is spot on as he looked a big 6ft2 in his middle age, esp. since HW Bush was a solid 6ft2, even in '92. Both on the debate stage with Ross Perot showed they were the same height and towered Perot easily. Perot was 5ft5 back then.

I don't buy Hillary being listed as 5'6 either. She's more average 5ft4 and the listing of 5'9 for Chelsea is off. She's more 5'7.

As for tall presidents I actually think 6ft 2in is the most ideal height for a MALE to be president(Rep. or Dem.). It's not "lumbering Lincoln "6'4 tall but still tall enough. I think every president should be 5'11-6'2". It makes them look more powerful, more imposing and gives them character.

Gran Torino may be his best of the 2000s. Unforgiven and TBTGTU are classics. Mystic river and million dollar baby are just too depressing.
Tall In The Saddle said on 17/Nov/20

Yeah. I found Gran Torino so correct in its due lack of political correctness. Clint nailed it.
Canson said on 15/Nov/20
@Tall in the Saddle: I loved Grand Torino!
Tall In The Saddle said on 14/Nov/20
@Vincent Caleb

Tough question. I have to admit, there's quite a few I haven't seen, including the spaghetti westerns.

I would say UNFORGIVEN, A PERFECT WORLD and GRAN TORINO, in that order. Clint's own acting, casting and directing can be quite the killer combination. HACKMAN and COSTNER also happen to be among my favorite actors.

And yes, Clinton about 6'1.5" peak, best case 6'1.75" but, just IMO, more likely the former.
Vincent Caleb said on 13/Nov/20
@Tall in the saddle: Just wondering what’s your favorite Eastwood movie? My all time fav is the good, the bad, the ugly, but Gran Torino is my favorite from recent years. Just to say something height related, Bill Clinton was 6’1.5” peak.
Tall In The Saddle said on 11/Nov/20
@Vincent Caleb

Height in the saddle? Good question. No idea. Staying in the saddle for a satisfactory period of time is the most important thing though. :)

Perhaps saddle height can be a new feature added to the site. As always, estimates have to be duly qualified of course, denoting peak, current, morning, afternoon etc. Just something else we can all chew over and disagree on.

To start the ball rolling, I will say Mr Eastwood's saddle height has decreased dramatically from peak. His peak was likely overstated anyway and rumor has it that Clint's horses had extra thick, custom hooves for added advantage. Current measurement for Clint no longer possible. Even with an assisted mount, poor old Clint simply slides across the saddle, keeling over and hitting the dirt on the other side, cursing, Gran Torino style, all the way down.
Vincent Caleb said on 10/Nov/20
@Tall in the saddle: LOL. Monica I’m sure was dropping a lot of height in posture with Bill, and I mean A LOT. Also, how tall do you think you are in the saddle? 9’4”? 9’5”?
ADAM VARCO said on 8/Nov/20
As confirmed by a physical in the white house in 1993
6'2" exactly

LOL. Good one. Give that man a cigar. One for you. Not Bill. He already got his, special delivery, straight from the humidifier.

For the record. I found a few listings for Monica. 5'6", so they say. Standing, of course. :)

@Tall in the saddle:
I have always wondered how tall Lewinsky was, but I can’t seem to find many pictures of the footwear in pictures with Bill, although she probably was not doing much standing when she was with him.;)
Tall In The Saddle said on 5/Nov/20

5'9.5" on the ground. In the Saddle? Not sure, never measured that but definitely up there. LOL.

Re BILL CLINTON. Yeah, the numbers ring nicely, 6'2.25" morning down to 6'1.75" by afternoon with a "cheeky" round up to 6'2". Worst case perhaps, 6'2" down to 6'1.5" with an even more "cheeky" round up to 6'2".

After all these years, Lewinksygate seems pretty tame as compared to what's "going down" in the White House right now. :)
Canson said on 4/Nov/20
@Tall in the Saddle: interesting that he “wakes up” to 6’2.5” (in his prime), that would mean no more than 6’1.75 afternoon if exact! So you may be right.

By the way how tall are you?
Vincent Caleb said on 3/Nov/20
@Miss Sandy Cowell: Cheers Sandy!
Canson said on 3/Nov/20

Here is a couple slightly more recent pics:

These pics are not the most defining pics in showing the difference in their height, but based on all of the evidence I have seen I think trump was a solid 1/4 inch taller. These pics give a general idea of what they were like when compared in height, there are also pictures where Clinton can look taller by a smidge, but those are more rare and a lot harder to find. Overall I would say that Trump could have been the full 6’2” and Clinton 6’1.75”, but that is on the higher end of what I would put them as.
Vincent Caleb said on 1/Nov/20
@Tall In the Saddle: Agreed, he was more like 6-1.5. I am surprised that even in old age he was claiming 6-2 since he is struggling with 6-0. Trump in his peak would have a much better chance of the full 6-2 IMO.
Miss Sandy Cowell said on 1/Nov/20
@ Vincent Caleb - I thought that President Obama was by far the best president in recent years.

Trump might have been a little taller than Clinton originally, so his poor posture has a lot to answer for.

I, too, have read the demeaning things Trump has said about short people, and in particular, short women. I've heard him refer to the women in his life, including his daughter, as taller than they actually are, calling them six-footers. If he accepted himself as having shrunk to six foot zilch himself, that would invalidate everything he's said about his women's heights.

Cheers Vincent! 😉👍
Tall In The Saddle said on 1/Nov/20
There are photos of Clinton with Ali in which, IMO, there's little to choose between them if anything.

Going back to at least 1993, when Clinton was 47 and Ali 52, they could look even, especially if you allowed for Ali's clearly bowed neck. Shoulder height could often appear in Ali's favor. By then, fair to say some height loss for Ali in view of health issues and bowed neck. Not so likely for Clinton but possible I guess. Next to Bush Snr, Clinton always appeared a bit shorter. I'm thinking maybe about 6'1.5" peak rounded to 6'2" for Clinton.
Vincent Caleb said on 30/Oct/20
@ Miss Sandy Cowell: I would actually say a peak height trump may have the edge. I’m sure he would like to hear that, but trump also would never step on a stadiometer in public, due to getting exposed as a height fraud. Why does a man with such power have to add nearly 3 inches? It amazes me how insecure trump is about his height, and other things as well. He constantly projects his height insecurity into others calling people little , mini, miniature, and other demeaning things. Half of what he says would get him Banned on celebheights. Obama was honest about his height, just saying.
Miss Sandy Cowell said on 30/Oct/20
Bill looks a smidge taller than Donald Trump, but that just COULD be related to the way the two stand. Bill probably has a slightly better posture. I arrived at Bill Clinton's page and expected to see around three-quarters of an inch more. Now I'm sounding like I've been coming here for years. Heeeeeeeey.... I HAVE, and I'm noticing the little details that I found amusing when I first started reading people's comments!

Bill gets 6ft and half-an-inch today and 6ft2.25 for his peak. 😁

I stood next to a life size cardboard cutout of Bill in LA c. 1993 and my girlfriend snapped a foto of me next to it. I was in my early 30's and a strong 5'11" and change round that time and the cutout still owned me by a good 3 inches. So ye, bill gets a strong 6'2" vote off me in his youth, probably still a strong 6' now in his mid 70s.

Not sure he was a strong 6’2ish at peak but I am sure he is a legit 6-footer today. I would say 6’1.5/187cm peak and 6’/183cm today
Sinclair said on 19/Aug/20
Happy 74th Birthday to Bill Clinton. A flat 6’2” peak suits this man well. When Jacques Chirac became the French President, I would say Clinton was just a shade taller than Chirac (who I believe was about 6’1.5” by then). For Chirac’s peak, I would estimate 6’2.5”.

Who do some of you think was taller at peak out of Valery Giscard d’Estaing and Jacques Chirac?

I’m going with 189-190cm
Editor Rob
strong 6ft 2 maybe in his youth, could still look 6ft 1-2 in 60's
Tunman said on 3/Jul/20
Yeah,6'2 for Chirac is possible by that time but no more.In some footage of 2014 he really struggled to look even 6' next to 169-70cm Hollande,his health started to decline after 2005 when he had some heart related problems and so did his posture which was terrible in his last years,however in his 60's it was still impeccable though I wouldn't rule out 0.5"loss in the mid 90's
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 23/Jun/20
Chirac looked at least 6ft2 in his 60’s
Tunman said on 21/Jun/20
I would have said he was exactly the same as Jacques Chirac in 1995,though at that time Chirac was already 63 so likely has lost a little bit of height.Likely both in that 187,5-88cm with Chirac being more 189cm at peak.

Google has him at 6ft2 and he does look pretty similar to Clinton. There’s more photos on the web of him with Clinton, Obama, Bush and Blair where he varies. My verdict is 6ft2 peak and now at 71 closer to 6ft
Nearly 180cm guy said on 3/Mar/20
Actually a full 6'2" is not unbelievable for Clinton in his prime. In 1987, Clinton looked 2 inches or even a little more taller than Ronald Reagan who was then at almost 6 feet: Click Here Click Here Click Here
In 1993 he still looked a bit taller than 6'1" Al Gore: Click Here Click Here
I also found a photo of Bill and Hillary from 1972 when they both were over 20: Click Here
Overall, I wouldn't go over 6'2" and although sometimes 6'1.75" might seem possible, I think full 6'2" is not a bad list. Good job Rob!🤗😉
Canson said on 25/Feb/20
@Rampage: I saw some pics with Muhammad Ali but I’m not sure if either guy was in their prime at that point. Clinton was 46 when he entered the office. They looked maybe 1” apart maybe even 2cm in a few
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 8/Jan/20
Dunno about 6ft1½ would be the absolute lowest I’d buy peak. More liklely closer to 6ft2 but he was a guy that possibly have dipped just under 6ft2 after a long day rather than held it at his low or was slightly over it. If 6ft2½ is the height he’s claiming out of bed then you could argue for 6ft1¾. Peak he was right between Obama and Trump/Bush Sr.
Mickie said on 21/Dec/19
6'1.5" peak is possible, but he was more than just 6'1". Today he's clearly shorter. His posture isn't the best in his old age, but 6'0" seems a reasonable guess.
TobioMark said on 16/Nov/19
I'd downgrade him to 5'10.5-5'11". My dad met him yesterday and took a picture with him; his boss, who has like an inch on me at best was the same height or taller than Clinton.
I'm around 1.74-1.75 m myself. His boss is probably like 1.78 m. A weak 6'0" would be possible first thing in the morning. Maybe 5'11.5" is possible, but very unlikely.

5ft 10.5 is what our friend Jeff Cavalier claimed to measure, yet he was 4 inches shorter than Bill!

He doesn't even look less than 6ft 2 during
and before his President years in 1990s... He always look much taller than wife Hillary at most. Like Hillary was standing around Bill's cheek.. with around 9 inch differences in some very old pics. Yes, I do agree with your listing for his current height as 6footer based on what I saw him with 6ft 1 first US black president Obama.. Yes, He has definitely lost tons of heights after his presidential year ended!!!!!! At very lowest, he can even be 5ft 11 3/4 ish!!!!

It's so strange that being the same age as Trump, Clinton has shrunk more and much quicker...and this by being even lighter than him. Looks like genetics is playing a huge role here, or Clinton has a lack of vitamin D?

Clinton beside 6'2.25" Morgan Freeman in 2009:

Click Here
Click Here
Click Here

They look to be of somewhat similar heights, with Freeman having the clear perhaps a half inch. I can easily see Bill at a weak 6'2" here, but its also arguable he was always more of a weak 6'2" pre-height loss, though I'd think a flat 6'2" peak is pretty fair, considering he was at least the same height as Trump back in the 90s. I certainly don't think Bush Sr. had a full inch on Bill either, maybe a half inch, but Bush could give off a stronger 6'2" impression even well into his 70s a lot of the time. On a side note, I could've sworn he'd done some noticeable shrinking by '09 though...lifts I can't be too quick to conclude to as of yet...
arun kc said on 2/Aug/18
Bill Clinton peak 6-1,now 6ft as Rob bush sn. Was a legit 6-2 well into his 70s.not every body looses height by 1in avg by age 70. If you compare photos of both of them in white house I think - both at their peak heights,you can clearly see Clinton is at least an inch shorter. The comparision photos are on George bush sn page I think. Sorry IAM not able to post the photos as my computer skills are relatively weak.

I agree with this current listing 100%. I don’t know if he was 6’2” in his prime but he has without a doubt fallen to 6’0” or maybe even a hair under. Former New York Giants Wide Receiver, Victor Cruz, is listed at 6’0” and posted this photo on Instagram posing with Bill Clinton: Click Here

maybe 3/4-1 inch range is common. You do remarkably well to hit 68 with say 1/4-1/2 loss, you do a bit worse than average if you lost 1.5 or more.

Watched the 1996 debate between Bill Clinton and Bob Dole recently. I've read that Dole was once around 6'2 - here's an article mentioning it Click Here - and it's hard to argue against it. For Dole being in his 70s when he had certainly lost height, he stacks up with the then 6'2 Clinton very well. Click Here

I'd say Dole followed a similar pattern as Clinton - ~6'1.5 in his prime, ended up around 6' flat when all was said and done. He's in a wheelchair now so it's hard to say.

Think peak he was close to 6'2 If not on it
nabeel said on 20/Jun/17
my younger brother stood net to him when he was 17 to receive an award, my brothers 5ft 11 now and maybe 5ft 10 then.. they look almost the exact same height. the pic was taken 5 years ago.

Yeah, he's probably 183, 184 now.

Bill Clinton: 6'1.75 (187.3cm)
Donald Trump: 6'2 (187.9cm)


Bill Clinton: 6'0 (182.8cm)
Donald Trump: 6'0.5 (184.1cm)
berta said on 4/May/17
i think the average guess is spot on 183 today and close to 188 at his peak. 189 1 hour out of bed
Hans Meiser said on 14/Apr/17
This is really worrying. I'm 182cm and I don't wanna be 5'9 in my late sixties (if I reach that age, of course).

all I'll say is that a good diet, rich in vitamin and minerals will go a long way to ensuring good bone health.

At peak

Clinton: 187-188cm
Trump: 188-189cm


I can't see Trump being taller than Clinton. At best Trump was the same as Clinton. Trump's thick hair just made him look a bit taller than he was.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 9/Apr/17
At peak

Clinton: 187-188cm
Trump: 188-189cm
berta said on 9/Apr/17
he may have been barely 188 in the afternon at peak today 6 feet sounds fine. by the way a newspapper many years ago said that he had shoe size 14. I wonder if that is true sound a littel mutch for that height. i have barely 15 and think that is big for my height.
Christian-196.2cm (6ft5.25) said on 2/Apr/17
Easily has lost over 5cm. 187-188 peak, but today he struggles to look 182.
Andrew said on 29/Mar/17
I met Bill Clinton in April of 2016. We had similar shoe heights and he was about 2 inches taller than myself (1.79m). U think he could have been 1/4 inch over 6 foot. Any thoughts Rob?
S.J.H said on 28/Mar/17
Click Here clinton is 181cm since this photo taken
John said on 24/Mar/17
Rob, he will appearently be dead within a year.
Editor Rob
some ex-presidents have a habit of living longer than you'd expect...

if Bill reaches 80, he'll be delighted, although might be only 5ft 10 by then.
John said on 17/Mar/17
6'1.75 peak, 5'11.5 now.
Canson said on 5/Mar/17
Solid 6'2 prime don't know about today
berta said on 23/Feb/17
i believe that trump was taller than clinton 30 years back.
Arthur said on 3/Feb/17
Rob, if he measured 6'2.5 right out of bed, then he should be 6'1.5 at his peak. It makes more sense, because 2 inches loss at 60-70 years old is a hell lot!
berta said on 27/Jan/17
he is a tought one. little under 188 peak and 183 today.
Hans said on 20/Jan/17
I'm over 6'1". Most people think I'm 6'2" plus. I stood next to Clinton about 10 years ago. He was a very solid 6'2". Possibly 6'2.5". I don't know now. He's definitely shrinking.
James said on 9/Dec/16
I think he's 5'11.25"(181cm)at most these days. Doesn't really look like a 6 footer to me as compared to Obama and Kobe Bryant etc.. His peak height can be very well 6'1.5"(186cm)

Rob, who do you think was taller (peak height): Clinton or Trump? I thought Clinton looked closer to a legit 6ft2.
Editor Rob: Christian, it might be hard to choose between them peak.

Both I think have obviously lost height, at least an inch, in Clinton's case it looks more.

With both of them roughly the same age, Clinton looks far weaker, while Trump seems to have a lot of energy.

Actually I think they were both two legits 6'1.5" guys...
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 7/Nov/16
I think Trump may have been the stronger 6ft2
S.J.H said on 6/Nov/16
Trump is taller at least 6'0 and clinton look at most 5'11.5 (look 181.5cm to me)

Obama look 1.5" taller than clinton for sure. He needs a downgrade at 5'11.5 although i think 5'11.25 but he could be higher
James said on 4/Nov/16
He was never 6'2.5".
S.J.H said on 17/Oct/16
6'1.25 peak and 5'11.25 now and probably 6'2.5 out of bed in his 20s-30s
O.J. said on 25/Sep/16
Saw him back in 2004 and he looked to be 6'1 on the nose.
Gregg Richards said on 21/Sep/16
Need to put a picture of him that is more recent instead of this 20 yr old photo ,I think he was 6 ft 2 as president but not sure of current height.
Sally Townes said on 31/Jul/16
Don't know about Bill. But at 5' 4 & 1/2" I stood by Hillary at a gathering in `03. We both had on a small heel, and she was at least 1 1/2 inches shorter than I am. I think she's listed at 5' 7". Absolutely no way! I would say 5' 3" without shoes.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 19/Jul/16
Rob, maybe 189cm in his 20's?
Editor Rob
I think his quote actually makes me think the guy measured 6ft 2.5 out of bed.
Roger said on 17/Jul/16
Hello community. I've been following this website since my freshman year in college. I'm 25 years old now. I had the opportunity to meet Mr. Clinton during my sophomore year of college. I was 22 years old back then and I measured around 5'6. I was currently measured at 5'8.5 due to a surgery. Anyways... long story short, I met him in person, even shook his hand. I SWEAR he was not even 3 inches taller than me. I'm calculating he was around 5'9 at the most when I met him. This actually happened at Saint Cloud State University. There is no way he was more than 5'10 BAREFOOT during his prime years. I'm being honest here. Cheers amigos
Jordan87 said on 30/Jun/16
Obama is 6'1.5 Tops and is a solid 2" on clinton in Most photos. Bill Now is 5'11-5'11.5. In his prime 6'0.5 tops He couldn't have lost more 1.5".
grizz said on 28/Jun/16
I think his height loss is exaggerated solely because his peak height is exaggerated. Since he was 6'2.5 out of bed, that would mean that he was 6'1.75 or even as low as 6'1.5 throughout most of the day.
I mean, his puffy hair might have given a false impression, but he really didn't look that much taller than 6' Tony Blair.
He's a solid 6footer nowadays (I've seen pictures of him with Chris Tucker and Chris is just a tiny bit taller).
So, he lost around 1.5 inches at 70 which isn't that bad.
Jordan87 said on 27/Jun/16
He Is 2" Under 6'1 Obama nowadays. He really lost 3" in height by 69? No!!! Maybe 1.5 putting him around 6'0.5 in his prime. He lies about his height, like he lies about everything else. ( Monica Anybody).
MrTBlack said on 24/Jun/16
That 6'2.5" measurement was probably less than an hour after he awoke because he probably is solid 6'2" no more than 2hours after he wakes up.
Jim said on 26/May/16
He's not 6'2.5!!" I have a picture with him, pre-Obama, and he's probably a touch over 6'1" in .5 inch dress shoes. I was wearing my favorite shoes which add .75 to my height of 6'4.25." Clinton was taking pictures with tons of people and he even said, "come over here and smile, big fella" to me. Some of his Secret Service men made me look like short.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 18/May/16
Rob, do you think he could have been one of the few who was measured not in the morning but actually STRAIGHT out of bed height?
Editor Rob
his quote actually feels like he's a guy who measured himself 6ft 2.5 out of bed!
184-182 said on 10/Apr/16
Seemed a solid 6'2" in his prime. I reckon the 6.2.5" presidential listing was in the morning. Looks to have lost some height and consistently an inch shorter than 6'1" Obama nowadays. I'd say 6' tall, 6'0.25" at most. Maybe dips to 5'11.5" at night.
S.J.H said on 1/Mar/16
Peak 6'1 and 6'2 with shoe and 6'3 a hair
Now dipping below 6'0 (around 182.5cm) and 6'1ish with shoe.
hijopotamus said on 21/Feb/16
6'1" with shoes and hair.
Lurker said on 21/Feb/16
The 6ft 2.5 may well have been in shoes. I'd say 6 1.5 peak - if he really was ever more than that, his height loss has been truly dramatic. I saw a picture of him from last year next to Bush 43, where he looked no more than half an inch taller or so. (And Bush himself was no more than 5'11 when elected president, maybe slightly less these days. )
Micho said on 9/Feb/16
He looks 6"3 with 5"9 Michael Jackson...
Tom said on 24/Jan/16
Clinton was 6'1.5" at his peak.

5'11.5" now at 70.
MD said on 11/Jan/16
He has lost significant height, which is no surprise given the kind of heart surgery he went through before. But, yes, he's struggling mightily with 6'0" feet these days. Like I said, he was a legit 6'2" guy back during his presidency, which is why it surprises folks to see how much height he's lost these days.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 9/Jan/16
A sub-6ft Clinton is hard to sell. He can still look close to Obama. He did look a strong 6ft2 guy in the 90's
Danimal176 said on 9/Jan/16
Rob, he definitely looks under 6'0" these days. Max 5'11.5". He was 6'2.5" in the 90's.
Editor Rob
looking 5ft 11.5 but possibly still measuring near 6ft...he might be a guy who doesn't have the best posture.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 7/Nov/15
I think 6ft2-2½ in his 20'-30's is possible. But was late bloomer I think. He was a bit shorter than JFK and that famous picture of them shaking hands
