Donald Trump's health

Post by lpm » Fri Mar 06, 2020 11:03 pm

Have to say, in the last 2 to 3 weeks Trump has been looking a great deal better, physically. He's lively, agile, moving well. More energy generally.

But mentally? My god, the things he has said today. He can no longer pretend to be human.

Well I'm guessing that's doctors controlling drugs and diet will get someone so far...

Maybe I need to withdraw this comment, based on the latest leak.

You're going to have to be more specific when talking about "the latest leak" from the Trump administration.

Meh, it'd be competing with a lot of other regrets.

Well a few weeks ago I was seriously suggesting that if he did take part in the presidential debates, there was about a 20% chance of him soiling himself on national TV.

Looks like I need to up my assessment of the chances

Maybe not, since he'll probably be up against Biden rather than someone like Warren.

They'll probably both be up there soiling themselves and forgetting each other's names and rambling on about irrelevant, half-remembered gibberish.

The absolute f.cking state of the place.

Why does he never start his public statements on time?

He wants to appear in control and organised, yet wanders in late for absolutely everything, and it would seem to matter a lot for a pandemic.

If anyone wants to watch him live it's on

Isn't that a "thing", like his deliberately destabilising handshake? Turn up late and everyone is waiting for you excitedly.

Hitler used to turn up late for his speeches, in order to get the crowd riled up. While Trump certainly hasn't read his bedside copy of Mein Kampf I'm sure he's picked up some oratory tips from one of his neo-Nazi mates.

Great news. Trump is doing all he can to help oil companies.

NYTimes
President Trump told a group of governors Monday morning that they should not wait for the federal government to fill the growing demand for respirators needed to help people diagnosed with coronavirus.

“Respirators, ventilators, all of the equipment — try getting it yourselves,” Mr. Trump told the governors during the conference call, a recording of which was shared with The New York Times.

“We will be backing you, but try getting it yourselves. Point of sales, much better, much more direct if you can get it yourself.”

The suggestion surprised some of the governors, who have been scrambling to contain the outbreak and are increasingly looking to the federal government for help with equipment, personnel and financial aid.

Splitting some posts from the Impeachment thread which were actually all speculation about Trump's health.

What is the Trump version of Napoleons famous declaration "His Majestys health has never been better"? *

* This was stated during the catastrophic campaign against Russia in winter, that led to almost everyone being lost.

Intelligence warned about pandemic threat
but Donald doesn't like intelligence.

He much prefers slyness.

He and his friends made huge profits on the stock market using this insider information. It's not unintelligent. c.nty, and possibly illegal(?), sure. But it makes sense.

f.cking doctors and nurses in New York. Nicking masks. Sending them out the back door.

Trump is furious about it. Because he's not getting his cut.

He's just been given an unaudited $500 billion slush fund so I expect he'll be ok. Nicking masks is amateur hour compared to a grifter like Trump.

Unless he actually gets covid, in which case I don't fancy his chances.

It's rare that Donald Trump tweets get completely deleted.

He (or his staff) sometimes deletes and reissues, to correct a silly mis-spelling or clear error. But erasing from the record entirely is another matter.

Here's the tweets that have been removed, presumably by his carers:

That's awesome. It's a pity it all got deleted as it would have kept him in the running for the Noble Prize for spelling. Many of those words were spelled right. Even some of the big ones.
