Footage of the moment carried by ABC News also shows the presidential candidate saying, “Like, what could Donald Trump possibly be better than me at? An eating contest?”

“Like something that involved trying to keep something on the ground and having really large body mass? Like, if there was a hot-air balloon that was rising and you needed to try and keep it on the ground, he would be better than me at that,” Yang continued. “Because he is so fat.”

Yang went on to say that Trump “might be able to beat me at golf, though I'm told he cheats a lot, so who knows what his true golf ability is.” 

According to ABC News, Yang began his riff on Trump after reflecting with the press about a "delicious" turkey leg he ate at the fair. 

Yang had said then that he couldn't "be eating crap on the trail too often” because he needs “to stay in presidential form." 

“No one wants a president who doesn't seem like they can run a mile,” he went on, adding, “I don't think Donald Trump could run a mile ... what does he weigh? Like 280? I say he like passes out at like the quarter-mile mark."
