James Gunn, director of “Guardians of the Galaxy,” is offering $100,000 to charity if President Donald Trump will just step on a scale — an “accurate” one, he said, not one belonging to a doctor with ties to the White House.

The Huffington Post reported the offer comes in the wake of Trump’s physical health exam, the results of which were shared by White House doctor Ronny Jackson, who said on Tuesday that the president was 6′3″ and weighed 239 pounds — reportedly one pound shy of being classified as obese. 

Gunn didn’t buy it.

Taking to Twitter, the film maker shared side-by-side photos of Trump and Major League Baseball player Albert Pujols, who are both around the same height and weight but, in the shots, their body compositions are notably different in size.

“Trump's medical exam says he's 6'3" and 239 pounds. Albert Pujols is 6'3" and 240 pounds,” Gunn said in the post.

“I will give 100 thousand dollars to Trump's favorite charity if he will step on an accurate scale with an impartial medical professional, okayed by both of us. For real,” he posted in another Tweet, adding #girther as a nod to the debunked “birther” conspiracy theory that stated President Barack Obama was not born in the U.S., The Huffington Post said.

Gunn continued to poke fun at the test results on social media and it was not long before #girther began to trend.

In vein of Gunn’s tweet, AV Club writer Dennis Perkins also posted a similar side-by-side photo showing Trump and Minnesota Vikings running back, Latavius Murray, who were both listed as the same height and weight and again, the image shows dramatically varying body compositions, according to Newsweek.
