Oh, come on. Fox News host Dana Perino isn’t that short.

Heh. Here’s another shot of Perino at the George W. Bush Presidential Center with seven-foot-two Dikembe Mutombo.

The Twitterverse loved the photos of Perino with the former NBA player.

Perino can add the pic to her collection!

True story:

So, how tall is Dana anyway?

  • Lurker

    Dikembe Mutombo a Republican?

    • rinodino

      Why is that a shock? Plus bush did a lot for AIDS in his native land

    • InformNow

      Lurker, when you also make big bucks like Mutombo, you’ll find yourself turning into a Republican too!

      • CynicOwl

        Yeah, I wish I was as poor as Immelt, Buffett, and Soros.

        • HWarrior13

          An evil and/or hypocritical group of “men” you listed there, “Moaon…”

      • TheOriginalDonald

        If only Sir Charles didn’t go back on the plantation.

    • TomJB

      Well, he did follow the law, waited in line, paid his fees, and became a naturalized citizen the way everybody should.

  • Surry918

    Dana Perino is half the man Mutombo is…. No seriously, she is.

  • grais

    Well, I’m also 5′ tall, and I’ve always felt that folks like us should be the ONLY ones allowed to make short jokes.

    • thetreyman

      well why dont you get on that step stool and look me in the eyes and say that. 😉

      • Brent LaBeau

        That was worth a chuckle. Well done sir.

      • grais

        Don’t think I wouldn’t.
        ; )

    • HWarrior13

      There are positives and negatives for all sides.

      So, on behalf of “tall” people …

      Being a girl of 13 at 5’9 was no piece of cake, plus I grew up having to reach everything off the top shelf for 4’10 Mom.
      And people still ask me to get things off for them off the shelves at stores, etc.(It’s ok, I don’t mind :-)

      • waltzingmtilda

        My bestie is 5’9″, a full 9 inches taller than me. We make quite the pair when we go out…best of both worlds.

        • HWarrior13

          Mine is 5’10 and “works” than 1 inch over me for all it’s worth ! lol

      • grais

        If you’ve ever helped me out, thanks again.
        : )

        • HWarrior13

          Well, aren’t you sweet…and if I did…it was all my pleasure.
          (Besides, if you ever did ask for help and I didn’t help you…I would feel the backside of my 4’10 Mother’s hand slap me upside my head from 1000 miles away ! lol 😉

      WHAT’S WITH THE SHORT JOKES?-Little Jimmy Dickens

    • waltzingmtilda

      I’m only 5′ as well. I usually don’t “feel” short but occasionally I will see a picture of myself amongst “normal” size humans and be shocked at how little I am! And I will admit to taking advantage of my height…nobody ever expects me to lift heavy stuff, even though I totally can.

      • grais

        I know what you mean.
        I’m short And I’m old…I don’t even have to carry stuff.
        ; )

    • Guest

      I am 4′ 6″, and you are right @graisy:disqus!

  • Right Wired

    and I shall call her…mini P

    • Jedd McHead

      Lol, nice.

    • Jedd McHead

      Lol, nice.

    I’ll bet Dana Perino’s husband feels ten feet tall thinking how fortunate he is to be married to a woman who is so pretty, smart, and nice.

    Beckel tried getting his pic taken too, but Dikembe wagged his finger at him and said “NoNoNo!”

    • Spatial Awareness

      “Not in MY house!!!” ~_^

      • BAW

        I’ve always thought those commercials were kind of stupid. I think I’ll view them differently now.

    • TheOriginalDonald

      NOT TODAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • blackflon

    I stood next to him once and at 6’4″ I barely made it to his shoulders.

  • Kingofthehill


  • JustLikeAnimals

    Our 14-month old daughter runs to the TV every time that Geico commercial comes on! Whenever Dikembe says “Not in my house, not today, or no, no, no” she points her finger and waves her hand back and forth. Sooooo funny!

  • TheOriginalDonald

    Jimmy, how happy are people who post on Twitchy?


  • lukuj

    Unfair. The height needs to be redistributed.

  • Emily B

    He could fit her right in his pocket!!

  • kblue905

    At 6’2 1/2, I’m always as tall as, or tall than most men around me. I felt so dainty and petite the day I got to meet Dikembe. I’ve always loved being tall, but it was nice to get to experience life as the much shorter one for a change…as opposed to the Amazon that I usually am!
