Donald Trump Slurs While Delivering Important Speech
Donald Trump, on behalf of USA, revealed a shocking decision to acknowledge Jerusalem as Israel’s capital. (read: Why Donald Trump’s Declaration to Recognize Jerusalem as the Capital of Israel is Causing An Uprising). He also announced the move of the US embassy in Israel from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem. While the decision itself triggered wild protests in the middle east, it was Donald Trump’s slurry speech that raised eyebrows.
Although appearing composed, Donald Trump’s speech said otherwise. He appeared to be fumbling all his ‘S’s’, and ended by saying: ‘God bless the United Shhtates’
MSNBC Morning Joe host Joe Scarborough said on his programme that Mr Trump’s pronunciation reminded him of his mother, who has dementia. He was careful not to insinuate the president has dementia. But he said on his programme he believed the slurring was likely due to dementia. He went on to point a very real problem:
“Unfortunately in the case of my mother, I can move that to the side and I am totally fine with that. In this case, Donald Trump has control of nuclear weapons.”
US President Donald Trump has been forced to defend his health after the incident. Press secretary Sarah Sanders said the president will undergo a full physical after the New Year and the results will be published.
The White House was quick to defend the president and rubbish the claims of his deteriorating mental health stating the slurring was due to a dry throat.
“There were a lot of questions on that. Frankly pretty ridiculous questions,” White House press secretary Sarah Sanders told reporters on Thursday.
“The president’s throat was dry. Nothing more than that.” She went on to state the President will take a full medical test and the results will be publically published.
President Barack Obama’s first physical record was released on February 28, 2010. President George W. Bush’s was first released August 4, 2001.
If released, it will be the first time the American public gets a legitimate accounting of the 45th President’s health. Donald Trump at age 71 is the oldest of any President at this point in his tenure. The last time the public had a peek at the president’s health condition was during the elections. He was checked by his personal physician of 25 years, Dr Harold Bornstein. The doctor stated that “If elected, Mr Trump, I can state unequivocally, will be the healthiest individual ever elected to the presidency“. This statement was wildly considered as ‘laughable’ by the public.
