President Trump’s inability to stand still during Memorial Day visit to Arlington National Cemetery may be tied to health issues he hasn’t disclosed. Increasing concerns, he’s way overdue for finishing his November 24, 2020, physical. Speculation is growing that the soon to be 74-year-old president may be more than just mentally ill. He may be suffering from a neurological illness.
President Trump’s inability to stand still during his Monday visit to Arlington Cemetery - didn’t go unnoticed.
Those paying close attention to the president’s behavior and health have begun to speak openly about both his increasing difficulty in speaking and his swaying when he stands for any length of time. He was clearly unable to find his balance and looked at the risk of collapsing.
Joshua Potash from Queens was just one of the scores of people on Twitter who took notice of the president’s struggle to stay vertical…
“Is the President having trouble standing up straight as the National Anthem begins at Arlington Cemetery (sic), or am I seeing things?”
Potash posted a video, along with another clearly showing the president swaying in front of the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier.

Concern has also been increasing over President Trump’s speech pattern and his inability to hold one thought long enough to finish comments. He often attempts to express an opinion and ends up drifting off into an unrelated rant, thought, or even gibberish. This continues to be an increasing problem with almost every appearance.
The irony isn’t lost on either his supporters or critics, especially now that Trump has taken to telling people that former Vice President Joseph Biden has “lost it” and is too hold to be president because he is losing his mental faculties. Bingo!
President Trump has an old habit of projecting his weakness onto his opponents and adversaries. His attacks on Biden’s mental acuity are likely to have more with his mental acuity and physical health than the former Vice President’s. The president may be the one with dementia or some other chronic degenerative neurological illness.
We all know that if there’s something wrong with the president’s health, the White House Physician Naval Commander Sean Patrick Conley will never disclose his illness after the hydroxychloroquine letter he signed last week.
One article among many to pop up in recent month’s worth reading is one titled…
Ben Michaelis, a psychologist in New York City, performed cognitive assessments at the behest of the New York Supreme Court and criminal courts and taught the technique at a hospital and university....
“There are clearly some changes in Trump as a speaker” since the 1980s, said Michaelis, who does not support Trump, including a “clear reduction in linguistic sophistication over time,” with “simpler word choices and sentence structure. … In fairness to Trump, he’s 73, so some decline in his cognitive functioning over time would be expected.”
Some of President Trump’s sentences, or partial sentences, would, if written, make a second-grade teacher despair….
“We’ll do some questions unless you have enough questions.”
“When I did this now I said, I probably maybe will confuse people, maybe I’ll expand that, you know, lengthen the time because it should be over with, in my opinion, should have been over with a long time ago.”
and omits words and entire sentences. Here’s an example that AP has recently offered…
“If they don’t treat fairly, I am terminating NAFTA,” and, “I don’t support or unsupport” — leaving out a “me” in the first and an “it” (or more specific noun) in the second. Other sentences simply don’t track: “From the time I took office til now, you know, it’s a very exact thing. It’s not like generalities.”
