33. Not mini, but micro stroke maybe? A precursor to the real thing?

Can't say I didn't lick my chops when I heard he had had another brain freeze episode as I'm as into schadenfreude against republicans as much as the next Dem, but where is his wife, for God's sake? She needs to do an intervention to get him the care he needs.

She was recently the Transportation Sec'y, presumably still a capable person. Why is she letting him continue to be set-up to fail by his likely successors like this?

If he stops talking to reporters in front of cameras then the problem is solved. Oopsie Daisy Aug 31 #1
