Throughout Trump’s treacherous presidency, several incidences have thrown up some major red flags regarding Trump’s mental health. Experts believe he is showing signs of mental deterioration that precede full-blown Alzheimer’s or dementia. (Video below)
His recent slurred speech while recognizing Jerusalem as the official capital of Israel called into question his mental fitness to lead the nation.
Sarah Huckabee Sanders told reporters that he is okay and will undergo a routine physical early next year. She also said that the results will be made public.
However, the founder of Neurocritic doesn’t agree with Sanders. He believes Trump is showing similar signs to Ronald Reagan at the tail end of Reagan’s presidency.
The Daily Beast’s Alex Leo transcribed the following excerpt from Trump’s South Carolina campaign speech:
Look, having nuclear—my uncle was a great professor and scientist and engineer, Dr. John Trump at MIT; good genes, very good genes, OK, very smart, the Wharton School of Finance, very good, very smart—you know, if you’re a conservative Republican, if I were a liberal, if, like, OK, if I ran as a liberal Democrat, they would say I’m one of the smartest people anywhere in the world—it’s true!—but when you’re a conservative Republican they try—oh, do they do a number—that’s why I always start off:
Went to Wharton, was a good student, went there, went there, did this, built a fortune—you know I have to give my, like, credentials all the time, because we’re a little disadvantaged—but you look at the nuclear deal, the thing that really bothers me—it would have been so easy, and it’s not as important as these lives are (nuclear is powerful;
my uncle explained that to me many, many years ago, the power and that was 35 years ago; he would explain the power of what’s going to happen and he was right—who would have thought?), but when you look at what’s going on with the four prisoners—now it used to be three, now it’s four—but when it was three and even now, I would have said it’s all in the messenger, fellas, and it is fellas because, you know, they don’t, they haven’t figured that the women are smarter right now than the men, so you know, it’s gonna take them about another 150 years—but the Persians are great negotiators, the Iranians are great negotiators, so, and they, they just killed, they just killed us.
Trump’s old friend, Joe Scarborough, recently stated:
“I’m not saying that Donald Trump has dementia,” Joe said, “but my mother has dementia. She lives in the moment. She forgets what she said a day ago, a week ago. We can’t have presidents that do that. And I’m not saying that he has dementia. I will leave that to his physician to figure that out.”
