'Most succential': Trump ridiculed after speech in which he 'confused his criminal cases'

Donald Trump on Friday was ridiculed online following a Minnesota speech during which the former president is said to have confused his own criminal cases.

Trump began his GOP dinner keynote address with complaints about the teleprompters, which he said were "falling down," and continued by whining that the podium itself needed work, as well. During the speech, the ex-president also said that Special Counsel Jack Smith was prosecuting him in New York. In reality, Smith's cases are in D.C. and Florida. "We have deranged Jack Smith in New York. He's a deranged individual, Washington," Trump said Friday.

Popular X account Spiro's Ghost responded to that Trump quote, saying, "Deranged Dementia Donald has confused his criminal cases." @CriticalBill76 wrote, "Jack L. Smith is not adjudicating Donald Trump in SDNY. I feel this needs stating."

Trump also touted his plans for the economy if he wins a second term. "We're gonna have MAGAnomics. We're going to make it the most [garbled]... we will be again the most successful country in the world!" @Acyn quoted Trump's slurred word, suggesting the ex-president claimed he will make the U.S. "succential."

Nah, who am I kidding?

Biden's the one who's supposedly old and out of it. That's the narrative.

5. WTF was that word? Did he just coin a new term...or was that just his unual dementia-adjacent slurring?

8. This is another sign of his worsening dementia

There's a great new podcast called "Shrinking Trump" from Really American Media.
Dr. John Gartner, who created the organization Duty To Warn co-hosts it.

He repeatedly warns, "the Donald Trump you see and hear today is the best version of Donald Trump you're going to get."
Meaning Trump's dementia is progressing rapidly and is only going to get worse.

That's why I honestly don't think the world will survive a 2nd Trump presidency.
He's too mentally impaired to handle the stress of the job. And no matter how incapacitated he becomes, his cabinet will never invoke the 25th amendment and Republicans in congress will never impeach and convict him for any high crime or misdemeanor.

Every time Trump gives a speech, interview or "truths," it's a big flashing warning sign that says to any sane American...
"This guy is sick. Stop voting for him."
