Trump’s Behavior and Gait Continue to Raise Real Medical Questions

7243

I try to be careful engaging the internet rumors that often fly about Trump’s behavior or posture and what the symptoms may mean from a medical perspective. Some of the commentary out there can only be described as clueless, irresponsible, and perhaps just mean-spirited. On the other hand, this is one of the oldest men to ever hold the office and one of the most secretive. He lives an unhealthy lifestyle, has always had drug accusations swirling around him, and has a family history that is peppered with issues.

He has earned some probing questions.

The net is lit about Trump’s strange gait, most recently seen last night when Trump attended an otherwise perfect football game.

 

All I see is an old, increasingly obese man unable to really move well, nothing medically meaningful.

But, then again, I don’t have the background to evaluate it, perhaps some of these people do and are accurate.

There might be some truth to the “stands curved” thing, he does have an extremely odd stance.

Or he might be compensating for putting on a massive amount of weight over the last few years.

But many people do believe that dementia is playing a role, and it would explain more than just his gait.

The rumors about a possible minor stroke taking him to Walter Reed a couple months ago always come around again during these instances. The Walter Reed visit has never been sufficiently explained. It also comes after slurring his way through an important speech last Thursday.

Of course, the fact that some think it is dementia while others think that Trump suffered a minor stroke just reinforces the fact that we don’t know, and cannot know without a complete medical review. Not even a physician examining Trump could make a real diagnosis without seeing the medications and other substances Trump might ingest. Via Rawstory:

Many observers perceived Trump as sniffling extensively and having difficulty articulating words during that speech, and suggested that his pupils appeared to be dilated. This was taken as more evidence that this obese, 73-year-old man does lines of Adderall all day to remain conscious, or is heavily tranquilized by his handlers to manage him, or perhaps both. (Those observations would indeed tend to pull in different directions, drug-speculation-wise, although that’s hardly the biggest flaw in this whole zone of online paranoia-slash-overconfidence.)

I tend to discount the Adderall rumors quite a bit. I don’t doubt that Trump is often on Adderall. I just believe that the man might have the most severe case of ADHD ever and perhaps it is the only thing that sort of keeps him functioning much of the time. Of course, he also has the addictive appetite for “more” in everything else, so it’s entirely possible that Trump is abusing the Adderall more than using it to a clinical end.

Regardless, this is what happens when all trust is lost, and when a man continues to do and say things that make very little sense. Throw in a family history of dementia and substance abuse, and there are real reasons for questions. Since there is near no hope for real answers, speculation is all that is left.

Setting aside all speculation, we can be sure that the only way we’re getting rid of him as president is through the impeachment process or the ballot box. The 25th Amendment won’t be a viable option, ever, unless he is truly incapacitated.

We will have to get him out on our own.

Peace, y’all

Can’t Congress or someone suggest that he go for an evaluation or something. The guy is a threat to national security, he inadvertently has leaked sensitive information numerous times. It’s only a matter of time till he does it again and someone gets killed. Can we wait that long?

Too late. IMPOTUS already got 176 innocent people killed when he ramped up tensions with Iran & got a civilian airliner blown out of the sky.

164 people on the Ukraine plane would still be alive if Trump would of shut his mouth. Including 50 Canadians …. hundreds of people have already died because of this obese monkey with the IQ of a Turnip, the ugly American

The constitution needs a lot of amendments once this nut is out of office. One is that a president can be indicted while still in office. I believe all presidential candidates should have a thorough mental exam before he takes office.

I still favor neuropathy related to tertiary syphilis as a contributing factor to his syphilitic shuffle!
