We have a step stool in our downstairs bathroom, and 225 lb is the maximum weight. That means there are four presidents who could not stand on our step stool!

The four presidents who would have broken this step stool:

  • William Howard Taft (325 lb)
  • Grover Cleveland (around 260 lb)
  • Donald Trump (estimated 255 lb)
  • John Adams (at least 250 lb)

My sister can fit on it. She weighs 30 lb.
