1. Morbid obesity affects his ability to do his job. It is very relevant.
The man can barely walk and has asthma attacks. It's very relevant. We do not want people who are unhealthy, to the point where they cannot do their job, in office.

And this is NOT comparable to Roosevelt having polio. Roosevelt could only walk with heavy leg braces, but he was not overweight and he was otherwise capable. He probably had high blood pressure & hardening of the arteries, but they didn't have medications for that back then.
