    Yes, he looked exhausted. Watch the video. He was probably up all night from the situation in the middle east. That and he obviously can't speak from a teleprompter as I said. He does much better speaking off the cuff.

    I am just the opposite. I can speak one on one with someone or even a few people in an informal context with no problem, but put me in front of a crowd in a formal speech setting, even if the crowd is full of my friends and I freeze up. If it is just me in front of a crowd and I am just giving an announcement or similar, I have no problem. Like when I hosted the gift exchange at the tweb convention. But I was asked to be the best man at my friend's wedding and had to give the "best man" speech and I stuttered and sweated through the whole thing.

    so now you are complaining because he DIDN'T take drugs.

    Come on, DoB! You are trying to play catch 22 here. sheesh.

    Some people have trouble speaking off the cuff and others have trouble reading from a scrolling teleprompter. That doesn't mean they are demented or drug addled.

    It must be nice to never, ever make a slip-up when giving a speech. How do you do it?

    I did the same at my brothers wedding, and he did the same at my other brothers wedding. He turned beet red and no one could hear what he mummbled, and I basically did the same thing. You're not alone.

Heck, it could even be used to demand DNA - and why stop with sitting presidents? Betcha someone out there still wants to prove Obama wasn't born in Hawaii...
    Straw man. I'm asking for an explanation for something *consistent with a serious medical problem*, which has *recently shown up* and *appears to be getting worse*.

    Most jobs can't demand things like this. But he's got the most important job in the country. It is in his power to end all human life on the planet. Read that a second time. In minutes the end of human civilization and eventual end of human life. I'd be fine with asking the president to get his DNA sequenced (under proper controls) so we can better understand what possible medical issues might affect her.

    You don't want the job? Don't volunteer!


    So Biden needs a new physical and a psych eval? Because Biden has far more instances on camera that can be construed as dementia - several so bad that he literally is talking nonsense.
    If there is even a fraction of the evidence he has dementia as we have for Trump then yes, he owes us answers before he give him the most important and stressful job in the country. At his age we should take as many extra precautions as we can. Sanders too since he just had a heart attack.


    And there is dispute - a video montage is not diagnostic - not by a long shot. Even less so when weaponized politically.

    Pence is on Trump's ticket - so, are you now mentally impaired because you literally just posted nonsense? Or can we chalk it up to 'nobody's perfect'? If the latter, be nice and show Trump the same latitude you want for yourself.
    Not sure what you mean. I meant Pence to be at the top of the ticket.

    Maybe *you* need a psych eval, your trolling is really slipping.

    This doesn't even qualify as a straw man. I complained about him *abusing* drugs. I *hope* the president takes drugs, when warranted, under her doctor's care.


    Some people have trouble speaking off the cuff and others have trouble reading from a scrolling teleprompter. That doesn't mean they are demented or drug addled.
    There are specific warning signs for dementia, such as aphasia (e.g. saying 'oranges' when you mean 'origins'). They don't prove anything on their own but they are enough to warrant serious questions and concerns. Surely you agree that if there is even a 1% chance the president has worsening dementia it presents a clear and present danger to our country, right?

    It must be nice to never, ever make a slip-up when giving a speech. How do you do it?
    I've done it before. Never had my brain reboot. If I started talking like Trump does in those videos I'd head right to the doctor, as would you!
