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.

I could tell you, but you'd regret it.

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.

I'm pretty hopeful at least one person at this press conference is infectious.

They've been shaking hands, all touching the podium in the same places, all touching their faces.

If one of them dies, a million lives could be saved.

Ha! Pence twice dodged shaking Trump's hand.

In his head he's hearing those happy words: Ladies and gentlemen, the 46th President of the United States.

The Australian home affairs minister, Peter Dutton, did his best to share with Bill Barr and Ivanka Trump last week.

There could be some interesting shenanigans if Barr isn't on deck constantly to put out spot fires for Trump...

I think you're being quite pessimistic here.

It could be several million.

Thought I'd put this here...

Trump yesterday: I'm fine, no worries, no need to get tested.

Trump today: yeah, I've been tested
