"The Johnson Treatment"

Lyndon Johnson, President of the United States from 1963 to 1969.

"At 6’4”, He used his gigantic imposing physical size and intimidating personality to emphasize his point." - https://sites.google.com/site/ucf2020/sources/student-pages/the-johnson-treatment 

More examples.

Isn't it funny how short men get "Short Man Syndrome" while tall men get "gentle giant?" I've seen tall men use "The Johnson Treatment" numerous times, but it only results in respect from other males and admiration from the ladies. Society wants to pretend like we're civilized, but clearly not.

I'm not from the US, but I've seen both Donald Trump and Hilary Clinton mock Rubio and Putin about their shorter heights. It seems to me like there's a reason why Russia or France has recently had short leaders, but not America.

People view it as a natural right for taller men to invade someone else's personal space, the same reason why they expect others to move out of the way when a tall man is going down the street. When a tall man pulls the "looming over someone" stunt, I wonder what would happen if a short man put his hand on the tall man's chest to back him off. The cynical side of me says the short man could be accused of being an insecure angry midget.

Either way, shout-out to HeightismReport for talking about height in politics.
