Should we be concerned that Trump needs two hands to drink a glass of water?

Today at West Point: “Trump at West Point. Still unable to drink a glass of water with one hand. Someone get him a sippy cup.”

I don’t want to make fun of people with serious medical issues, but Republicans opened up this can of worms four years ago when they pretended that Hillary Clinton was on her deathbed with everything from Parkinson’s to multiple sclerosis. (An exhaustive — and rather absurd — list can be found here.) And Trump himself claimed Hillary didn’t have the “stamina” to be president. But she had enough stamina to lift a glass to her mouth. At least she could do that.

Of course, this isn’t the first time Trump would have been better served by a sippy cup than an adult beverage glass.

Hmm. Somehow I picture a small handful of Cheerios spread around in front of him on the podium. I also wonder if he walks the White House corridors at night in Spider-Man footie pajamas while sporting a cherry Kool-Aid mustache.

But seriously, something is going on!

Could it be … a grave illness?

“People with dementia may struggle to handle cutlery or pick up a glass.”

Or does Trump simply do everything like a toddler?

Who knows? But Sean Hannity, et al., need to really examine the apparent frailty of a man who will be 74 tomorrow and wants to serve another four years as our president.

Read this article about Trump maybe needing a sippy cup, and immediately my mind went to the the prank dribble cup designed to dribble down the front of you when you take a drink. As I write this, I am getiinga mental image of water dribbling all down the front of Trump as he takes a drink, and a reporter trykng to keep from laughing while asking him if he has a drinking problem.😉🤣🤣🤣🤣

Funny how he looks like he’s about to suck a big one with that tube mouth.

I just surprised that the cup doesn’t have handles on both sides, a big baby needs a big baby cup.

He may have arthritis or he could have had a stroke. Remember the mad dash to the hospital that one day that was supposed to be routine physical which he has not had.
