Trump fat-shames adoring fan - by mistake

President Donald Trump during a rally in New Hampshire on Thursday mistook a supporter of his to be a protester, prompting him to look up at the man and say, "that guy’s got a serious weight problem.

Go home, start exercising.

Get him out of here please".

The man, Frank Dawson, later told "Fox and Friends" that he was not upset.

Afterwarthe rally Trump found out Dawson was a supporter and placed a call to him from Air Force One on his flight from Manchester back to New Jersey, where he is on a working vacation.

A senior administration official said Trump could not reach Dawson but left the man a voicemail.

Fox News Channel's "Fox & Friends" show contacted Dawson, who said he was not upset by Trump's comment about his weight.

"I think he thought I was part of it (the protest) but I wasn't.

I was the good part of it," he said.

"Everything's good.

I love the guy.

He's the best thing that ever happened to this country."
