He once claimed 5'8 3/4, today...

Thanks Rob. I was thinking a weak 6'3" up to 6'3".
Mickie said on 2/Aug/18
I could also see an argument for only 6" between the two I guess.

Rob, they have a few photos with Cenk near his taller nephew in this album: Click Here

Do you have a height estimate of the Nephew? Personally I was thinking maybe he looks about 6.5" taller than Cenk.
Editor Rob
I wouldn't have guessed him as tall as 6ft 5, 6ft 3-4 could be possible.

He's got his eye line raised more and is holding better posture in the picture with Shapiro. He's taller than Ben, but the absolute most the difference could be is 1.5" imo. In fact, it wouldn't surprise me if it was less than that.

@Rob: Are you convinced he’s nearly an inch below 5’9? I’d at least put him at 174 cm personally. He’s a guy who can look 175 cm with good posture.
Editor Rob
I wouldn't exactly rule 5ft 8.5 out...he's a guy who I think is a bit aware of height and likes to look as tall as he can.

I think he is taller. He might be 5'9. He looked 5'9 minimum with Al Gore

Reminds me a bit of my dad. He also has a heavy, stocky frame, and usually has pretty poor posture. He's 178-9 when standing straight but due to his posture usually looks 176 or so.

He has to be 5'9" otherwise Joe Rogan is sub 5'6"

Also he definitely looks taller than Alex Jones in this video: Click Here

Ben Shapiro 5'9 claim appears more credible here.

More credible than what? He's noticeably shorter than a guy who Rob thinks is a strong 5'8". Everyone can look bigger or smaller than they actually are, depending on the circumstances.

When not standing on his ego he is 5'8, 5'9/
The Shredder said on 26/Dec/17
But if he says he's barely 5'9 than I wouldn't put him over a weak 5'9
The Shredder said on 26/Dec/17
Actually my first guess was 5'10 ish because of how he looks With Al Gore.
MJKoP said on 25/Dec/17
Actually, watch the video of his confrontation with Alex Jones at the RNC....I don't see any chance in hell of Uygur being shorter than Jones. Rob?
Editor Rob: they seemed reasonably close, but I'd have said Jones is the taller of the 2 if measured.

Ha ha. Don't expect a Turk to be tall when thinking of American standards

Editor Rob: sitting behind his desk, he has a big personality, but is pretty much average height.

I noticed, at times Cenk wants to look taller in photos and raises his eyelevel up a bit.

"raises his eyelevel"

What do you mean, Rob?
Editor Rob: it's what folk do a lot who subconsciously want to be taller, just raise eyes up a bit.

I'm kind of shocked by this. I always saw him as a strong 5'9". I remember him looking only a couple inches shorter than Al Gore, but evidently he's actually below average. That second pic demolishes Ben Shapiro's claims that he's 5'9" (not that his fanatics care, they'll still claim Shapiro "rekt" the stadiometer).

In the photo you can clearly see he's wearing some kind of cowboy boot footwear, likely with a massive close to 2 inch heel. And also raises his eyes up to appear taller in photos like Rob says.

I think 5'8" for him and 5'7" for Shapiro (who probably has similar footwear). If Cenk wasn't trying to look taller by tilting his head back their eyes would be 1" apart in height, which for guys close in height a better way to judge than trying to look at the top of people's hair covered heads.

I know Cenk is in boots in that picture w/ Shaq, but if Brooke Shields is wearing heels I think Cenk should get the 5'8.75"

On a side note, I'd say it's safe to wager his wife is comfortably under five feet tall...no, Rob? Might be even less than of his weight, too!
Editor Rob: Brooke at times can look 5ft 10-11, although you could argue Cenk at times isn't far off what he says, a kind of weak 5ft 9 range.
HonestSlovene said on 25/Dec/17
Yeah that's what I also thought for him, decent 5'8", maybe near 5'9" morning kind of guy, looks around youre height Rob.
MaryAnne said on 25/Dec/17
He is a Turkish like me;)
The Shredder said on 25/Dec/17
I was thinking 5'8.75 as barely kind of 5'9 , but yeah , this is fine. My first thought was actually 5'10.
