Dementia riddled Donald Trump appears to struggle with who Barron Trump is [View all]
Donald Trump keeps showing worsening signs of dementia and/or senility, including repeatedly getting confused about whether the current President is Obama or Biden, which Bush brother was President, how many World Wars weve had, and so on. Trumps apologists keep trying to cover for it by suggesting that Trumps gaffes are actually hints about Biden being an Obama puppet and such. But its getting easier and easier to see that Trumps mind is fading.
Donald Trump was asked about his teenage son Barron in a new interview. Heres what Trump had to say: Hes a tall guy, very tall, six foot eight. Hes a great young man. Very good student. I think hes doing a good job, Barron. I think hes doing a very good job. Keep in mind that Donald Trump is talking about his own son and this is all he could come up with about him. Trump appears to remember that Barron is unusually tall, but thats about it. Beyond that its all generic platitudes.
Some are suggesting that this means Donald Trump simply doesnt know anything about his son to begin with. But weve all seen enough footage of them together to know that theyre at least spending some time together. It would be impossible for Trump to know this little about his son. Its fairly obvious that Trump was instead struggling to remember what he does know about Barron, and struggling to remember who he is beyond the fact that hes tall.
If youve had the misfortune to watch people around you go through dementia, you know that this is pretty much how it works. They end up speaking about family members and people close to them in generic terms, because they cant remember much of anything about them. Donald Trump has now reached a stage of cognitive decline where he doesnt seem to know who Barron is, beyond being a tall kid. Itll only get worse.
