I never heard the media say any of that stuff. I heard them say he may have had a minor incident like a small stroke, or angina, nothing serious. BUT the reason they speculated is BECAUSE THE TRUMP ADMINISTRATION MADE UP A BUNCH OF UNBELIEVABLE LIES!!! When you lie, and people know that you're lying, they then move on to speculation!! Obama doctor said that if that BS that trump officials told the media is true, trump did not have to leave the white house to do it, the doctors normally come to the white house. AND WHOSE GOING TO BELIEVE THAT BIG, GREASY, KFC BUCKET O' CHICKEN EATIN, OUT OF SHAPE, FAT MAMMA'S BOOTY WOULD CHOOSE A HOSPITAL OVER A GOLF COURSE! The sad thing is that everybody in that audience knows he's full of sht!! And batsht crazy!!

13. He is sooooooo boring and he is orchestrating the crowd.

Never completes a sentence so you're never quite sure what he is talking about. Switches between first and second person confusing the already rambling sentence. And he has to constantly compliment himself.

How boring can you get? Now I know why people are paid to attend his rallies.

And I noticed some hand signaling going on. When the crowd started cheering and interrupted him, he signaled with his right hand on the podium and with his head and lips like he does. Then the crowd very quickly quieted and he started rambling again.

I think he has clappers and cheerers there. They start and obviously stop the crowd. I wonder what they did to stop the cheering? I didn't know you can control a crowd so easily.

And why doesn't the media write about his orchestrating the crowd like that?

But how were they able to quiet them down so quickly after they interrupted the chosen one. He clearly signals and they quiet down within a minute.

21. Maybe because they adore him so much, he only has to point his pinkie?

There was one woman, last night, that had an off-the shoulder blouse on and she adored him more than anyone I've ever watched. She absolutely swooned, when she wasn't pulling her blouse up, that is. She mouthed all his words and swayed as though she was a teen watching a major rock star.

I suffer through his rallies because it is so fun to watch the participants. He's got something, but I sure don't recognize what it is. That performance last night was word salad extraordinaire.

24. Maybe because the cheering is forced and fake

That the minute the orchestrator(s) stops cheering or clapping, it quickly dies off.

Unlike the natural cheering of crowds, where many people start it and keep it going. So that all of them have to notice it's time to stop cheering ....and that takes awhile.

Yes, it is an odd way of expressing oneself. But every bit of it makes sense. And my guess is that the sound of this - the words, the cadence, the meaning - is music to his followers' ears. Seriously, like a salve on a wound. There has to be other ways to fight him on this front than just make fun of his speaking.

I'm sorry but he had me so confused and some of the crap he interrupts his speech with is just so far out in left field.

I didn't catch that him complimenting his fat chest was a joke. I don't think it was. I think he honestly believes his chest is beautiful. And then he said both that the military in the White House asked him if he was ok and that they couldn't ask him if he was ok. So which was it?

31. "...you stay in the hospital for a little while, like about six weeks, maybe..."

Says the "rich" man who doesn't know how hospitals work nor how much it costs to stay there.

I'm not saying there aren't heart conditions where people end up in there more than a month, but rarely would anyone convalesce in an actual hospital for six weeks for something mundane as a minor heart attack. Once out of danger, if necessary, they'd move them to long-term care like a nursing home for a period of time. People have already discussed how the White House has full medical capability and staff on call. Keeping a president in a hospital for that period of time would be a security nightmare for the facility.

Someone I know had a valve replaced in his heart, and he was at home within a week with home health-care checking on him for a couple more.

People used to stay in the hospital for long times in the past, but now the philosophy is they get you recovered and on your feet walking and out of there ASAP because that actually hastens recovery. They don't let you lay there for six weeks if they can help it.

39. We menial plebes were thinking much worse than a heart attack.

Because, as I remember it, he wasn't at Walter Reed long enough at the point it was reported in the media. Thrown clots, polonium chicken strips, missing screws, or his marbles skittering across the floor are more along the lines of the theories running around in the absence of an official reason beyond the less-than-believable rando physical checkup at a big freakin' hospital.

So, if he was flailing arms accusing others of thinking it was a heart attack at his rally, then he was probably checked out for that. Perhaps, ultimately failed at even being successful in having a heart attack. Happens. Yawn, been through that myself.

(Then he goes all look at the monkey, look at my tie. Doctors want me. I want myself so much putin wants me. What am I talking about? No one really knows, but lemme move on to bringing up the best people to hate now).
- I'm not really sure about whether he skips directly to the hating after his heart attack/chest pounding bit. Couldn't bring myself to watch the video.



All this to say, he probably got checked out for a heart problem of some sort. Who knows, but he's still going, still talking, still tweeting...

Its never the truth. He is doing just like he's done before , saying the opposite of the truth , and its likely he's suffering from congestive heart issues, and with his blood pressure could also be having mini strokes, or addiction issues making other issues worse. If his blood work showed he was abusing drugs or alcohol , it should be law they have to announce it publicly, and he has to enter rehab, period , and no different than other employers, and we employ him and his doctor. He looks really bad, bloated , acts confused and unable to understand things , and to me looks like possible early dementia pr something like it. Repeats things often? A serial liar too.

62. When he claims something like on this

You can just about bet its the opposite of the truth. I think we're seeing trump starting to break down , both his body and his mental state, and it could be happening at a very fast pace as the stress builds, and his getting exposed more daily making it more visible , and his behavior problems dramatically increasing. I think he has serious health issues and he's getting more upset he can't stop it. He won't make it to the next election in this state , and will have to resign. That's probably the real reason he's hiding in the residence now more, to keep it from showing so much. I also suspect he knows he's not going to be able to serve much longer, and his rally's are just personal money generators for him, and just an act. Republicans now know this too, so his future may be not so good for him and his family. He looks and acts like he's having a lot of problems with many things now with his health. The hospital visit for routine nature is a lie I'd bet.
