Holy COW! Justice Roberts hands were shaking badly!
I'm really surprised that someone in that high of an office would be that nervous in front of a camera!

32. I'm pretty sure he fucked up our Prez' swearing in on purpose.
I'm that cynical.

3. He botched Obama's swearing in. Maybe he was concerned about
doing that again.

8. He fears for the demise of the Totalitarian Republicon Homelander Reich
and the re-institution of the United States of America.

Right-wing, hate-mongering fascist zealots everywhere are trembling in their teabags.

9. Parkinson's?
The question must be asked.

Also, didn't he have a serious health episode a few years back?

24. Epilepsy? That's plausible
But even if he is epileptic, we'll probably never hear about it.

Interesting article, thanks.

12. In his defense, I don't think they get in front of the cameras too
often. Also, he probably was trying not to make a mistake like he did at the inauguration.

17. He's getting nervous
He now has to work with two minorities instead of just one. And it's probably more then he's worked with in his life.

22. He's haunted.
Perhaps historical figures he's condemned have returned to visit his rightwingnutworld, like Michael Jackson. With his conscience, I'd shake, too.

23. Sounds like it's health-related. I've known several people who've had tremors...
... Quite a few different conditions can cause this.

28. Tremors are a side effect of some anti-seizure medications.
Remember that he was hospitalized for seizures a few years ago? He's probably taking some type of medication to prevent additional seizures.

29. "stage fright" has little to do with job description or experience
there are all sorts of seasoned performers that suffer from it various degrees.
