Trump wasn’t always so linguistically challenged. What could explain the change?

quote [ In interviews Trump gave in the 1980s and 1990s (with Tom Brokaw, David Letterman, Oprah Winfrey, Charlie Rose, and others), he spoke articulately, used sophisticated vocabulary, inserted dependent clauses into his sentences without losing his train of thought, and strung together sentences into a polished paragraph, which — and this is no mean feat — would have scanned just fine in print. ]

Trump shoving a NATO leader so he could be in front of the cameras.

Prime Minister of Montenegro. Loser country! Comin' through!

The really odd thing is that that can be done way more politely with just the same effort. Just tap his shoulder, he'll let you through to the front. You represent a cornerstone of NATO, and you kinda belong up front. Unless you are unsure about yourself, feel like a fraud and don't...

Ohh...

I think Trump's behavior can be explained by two things - uppers and poor eyesight.
sanepride said @ 12:32am GMT on 26th May
Or maybe by just one thing-
That he's an arrogant, narcissistic asshole.

Seriously though. Same thing got to hitler and Kennedy.

Huh. I thought it was dyslexia, but poor eyesight is also a good option.

Are we going to claim every president has gone mildly retarded since being elected?
sanepride said @ 10:22pm GMT on 25th May
I'm not buying it. If Trump's having trouble with his words it's more a reflection of him being in unfamiliar territory, wrestling with issues and concepts he really knows nothing about. Not to mention that he's apparently not having a very good time. And oh yeah, he's exhausted, poor baby.

"Know your audience."

Trump may be a shit factory but at least he knew his audience/electorate well enough to get elected.
sanepride said @ 10:58pm GMT on 25th May
Yup, that's part of it too. Dumbing it down for the WWC.

So... I'm hearing Fetal Alcohol Syndrome?

I wouldn't rule out a medical condition just yet. His medical records are closely guarded just like his tax returns.
sanepride said @ 12:33am GMT on 26th May
I wouldn't rule it out if there was actually anything here. But really there isn't.

My fav. Great comedy timing.

I think it's just simple contempt for his audience.

I bet it was hookers and blow...

Fat, ugly hookers.

Don't rule out dementia. Or drug abuse. Or dementia accelerated by drug abuse.

Don't rule out dementia.

Don't rule out ... who took my shoes?
