Trevor Lawrence’s insane size was on full display Monday night at the White House.
President Donald Trump tweeted out a short video Tuesday morning of Clemson’s visit, and there was a brief moment that showed him engaged in a conversation with Lawrence.
It’s not an ideal optic for the White House or Trump. The Clemson phenom absolutely dwarfed the president, and made him look like a small dude from a height perspective. That’s pretty impressive because Trump is not short. He’s several inches over six feet tall. (RELATED: Clemson Beats A
The Clemson gunslinger is just clearly a hell of a lot taller, at six-and-a-half feet.

This is a great image of how big and imposing Clemson QB Trevor Lawrence is compared to other people.
Donald Trump is 6’3″ and Lawrence absolutely towers over him when they’re next to each other. That’s the size that has NFL owners, general managers and coaches going crazy. pic.twitter.com/ZXTEfa8FeJ

Not ideal from an optics angle at all! You don’t want a 19-year-old kid making the president of the United States look like a short dude, which is exactly what Lawrence did here.
Now, to be totally fair, the NFL prospect would make most people look like midgets. It’s that kind of size that will have NFL executives salivating for his talents in a couple years.
The kid is a gigantic human and even has some great flow to go with his QB persona and vibe.
Lawrence will probably be back next year. Maybe they can stage it a little better so he doesn’t dwarf the entire room.
