Soaring, articulate oratory was never one of Donald Trump’s hallmarks.


Trump’s remarks at the Pentagon this morning at an Armed Forces Full Honors Review, however, has people wondering whether the stress of yesterday’s congressional testimony by Special Counsel Robert Mueller has caused even further deterioration of the president’s aging brain or if perhaps he’s been taking a little too much medication to relieve his jittery nerves as he faces renewed evidence of his criminality.

Vox‘s eagle-eared journalist Aaron Rupar endured watching Trump’s speech on Fox News and fruitlessly endeavored to translate the president’s words into comprehensibility without success.

“Infantroopen”? Perhaps Trump should lay off reading that book of Adolph Hitler speeches before going to bed at night to avoid the nightmares

This was not the only mangling of the native English language — that Trump seems to be dedicated to ensuring is not diluted by the immigration of Hispanic refugees — that the president slurred out this morning. His reference to the “lawmarkers” in Congress was another sign of Trump’s linguistic deficiencies.

Twitter users naturally piled on to mock the president’s gaffes.

The president’s mental confusion makes his retweets of comments attacking Robert Mueller for his occasional appearance of confusion during yesterday’s congressional hearings particularly ironic.

That criticism of the special counsel pales in comparison to a man who can’t even read the material in his teleprompter properly.

Trump’s mental decline begs the question: would the 25th Amendment get him out of the White House more speedily than impeachment proceedings?

Whichever way is quickest, just make it happen as soon as possible.
