Trump cant catch his breath during Saudi speech

someone posted this on another blog (no link) - this is the only article I can find (so far) - there is a youtube video - but didn't have time to watch all of it.

1. He's putting on a lot of weight and he started off out of shape

If Congress doesn't get him, his diet will.

4. That's what happened to Roger Ailes....

And the temptations at the White House (strictly in the context of culinary) are far worse.

22. He seems to relate food to a lot of things

"We had a very nice dinner" and "Beautiful piece of chocolate cake". He uses food references in the oddest contexts. I think he is rather obsessed with food.

12. Not to mention, it's hot over there, which is always harder on hefty people.

I know from experience. Gradually doing something about it.

21. He has one but it is full of hate.

He hates everyone but his daughter/wife.

He has it coming.

He will not escape this mess he made even in death.

He got has got Putin and FBI on his ass.

He wanted something he will never have.

Respect like President Obama has.

His past is catching up with him.

It is all about him and his brand which is now dead.

He has nothing.

His family waiting for him to die.

No one will miss him.

6. I suspect that his term isn't the only thing he will cut short. Wanna bet he cuts this big

international tour short, too, because he lacks sufficient stamina to handle it?

7. Very subdued... I'd argue he'd been warned to keep it "calm" and probably given a beta blocker...

which, is not uncommonly used to keep oneself calm during public speaking to important/unfamiliar/stress-inducing audiences. With jet lag on top of it, a 70 yo man is going to be rather "out of it".

The problem with it is that use of beta blockers "dulls" the mind a bit too--not like a sedative, but it prevents the adrenaline rush that usually makes for a more engaging performance from those speakers capable of doing so.

Not saying there may not be many things wrong with Trump, both physically and mentally, but I"m not seeing what the source link claims.

8. I wonder if he is taking Rx for dementia or anxiety

Because of his almost-monotone delivery of these speeches.

15. He reads speeches in a flat voice because he has no clue re: cadence.

Ive watched him a few times..he reads a line written on the teleprompter, stops, reads the new line like a new sentence, completely screws up inflection.
Turns out he CAN read, just does not to, prefers his info. come from a voice, preferably on tv.
Or the ones in his head...who knows?

10. Setting the stage to resign due to health reasons?

Or simply to pudgy for his own good?

My vote is for pudgy.

14. Great for washing down beta blockers!



I know, I know, he says he doesn't drink, but it always struck me as weird that an alleged teetotaler would affix his hallowed brand name to an alcoholic product.

24. If you watch Trump's speech - besides being flat, he is very congested

sounds like he can't get enough air. Either stress, allergies, heart problems, cold, etc. He also could be having a reaction to whatever drug he is on to make him talk like the walking dead.

25. Maybe all the above.

I am sure he was drugged.

I am sure he is a mess otherwise.

It was reported he was yelling and screaming at the white house.

Now FBI is after him.

Putin can not be happy.

I think he knows he is toast.

Stress makes everything worse.
