Is Donald Trump okay?

Is Donald Trump okay?

For someone who made such a big deal about Hillary Clinton’s health during the election, Trump wheezes an awful lot when he speaks.

One recent example: Trump’s speech honoring first responders who saved the lives of members of Congress under fire during a softball game. Throughout the talk, Trump sounds like he’s having trouble breathing.

Below, I have two clips from, the speech — a shorter version, and a longer one (the longer one is to show you just HOW much Trump wheezed in one speech alone.

    Morbid obesity has several possible indicators. One is a body mass index over 40. Hair Furor is 6’2″, so anything over 310 lbs. is, by definition, morbidly obese for him. His maximum target weight, just short of overweight, is 194. That puts him at a BMI of 24.9

    The Blacks didn’t come out in force. Maybe if Hillary put on shoe polish.😱

  • Opinionated Cat Lover

    It technically did.

    But people like Bill above managed to get Lefties to stay home or vote green in key areas, and our antiquated system then gave the win to Trump.

    But at least this is an illustration of what happens when you cut your nose off to spite your face.

    When I blocked Bill Perdue, my enjoyment of AmericaBlog rose a significant amount. He’s the eternal Negative Nancy Debbie Downer of every place I’ve ever encountered him. He proves that Trump has Useful Idiots on both sides of the spectrum. He knows that there’s no way in hell that the Greens will ever win the Presidency, let alone the House or Senate (where the real legislative work is done or not done as the case may be), as long as we use a First Past the Post system like we do in this country. So, that he’s crapping all over Team Blue means either he’s so stupid that he doesn’t realize that the only Team that wins when Team Blue is crapped on is Team Red…or he’s not stupid at all, and maybe you are dealing with someone who isn’t as green as he makes himself out to be.

    Republicans in general and Trump in particular have been known to turn out bots and useful idiots (but I repeat myself) to shill for the Greens in order to weaken the Left and let the Right rule.

    We’ll let him comment on whether or not he’s a shill or just stupid. ;) Meanwhile, I will be blissfully unaware of his stupidity (either way).

  • Martha Bartha

    I understand. The Catholic Religion really stresses Modesty & being humble.

  • Bill_Perdue

    By purist you mean an opponent of the rabid racism, warmongering and union busting of Democrats like the Clintons, Obama and their shills.

    The Greens don’t want to terminate the capitalist system, socialists do. Greens are left centrist, just as you and Trump are right centrists. Socialists are leftists.

    Are his tiny fingers clubbing? I suspect CHF.

  • brel1

    don’t even bother

  • Bill_Perdue

    Of the two right wing parties, the Democrats are having the most problems. You’re perpetual losers and soon the rich won’t even bother to bribe your candidates and unpaid political prostitutes are worthless.

    And yes, your cousins the Republicans are also in trouble, as I said.

    Leftists, and that doesn’t include rightists like you who eagerly vote for border racism, wars of aggression and union busting scabs like Obama and the Clintons, are going to gain from the unsolvable problems of the twin parties of the right.

    Socialist groups are growing, the influence of socialist campaigns like the Fight for 15 and the campaign to unionize the unorganized is growing and you and d your Republican brothers and sisters will continue to lose.

    Those are all good things.

    Sayonara, racist.

  • Martha Bartha

    I thought for sure that would have cost him. Mindless idiots!👿

  • tommo

    Well, she’s just your typical whore. Don The Con always needs to shop for his next wife in impoverished eastern European countries because no normal woman would want to be near him, no matter how much he bragged he could grab pussies without consent.

  • tommo

    The Dems are melting? Which wingnut bubble are you living in? Faux News, hate radio, or neo-Nazi Steve Bannon / Stephen Miller? The GOP is now in a perpetual circular firing squad.

  • angryspittle

    You’re too kind, he is a fucking psychopath……..

  • BigGuy

    Morbidly obese is more than 100 pounds overweight. He’s not that big. He’s just obese.
    I’m morbidly obese and have a lot of health problems from being so fat.

    Trump’s major problem is he’s insane with no moral center. He’s a sociopath. No one running a Fortune 500 firm would hire him to be in charge of anything now, in the past, or in the future.

    Trump has diminished mental capacity from a year ago and two years ago. Compare Trump’s stump speech at rallies in July 2015 to rallies in August 2016. He said pretty much the same thing hundreds of times, but no where near as well towards the end than at the beginning. That does not make sense. Performing worse after hundreds of hours of practice, not better, proves out that he was fatigued at the end, or more likely, that he suffers diminished capacity.

  • brel1

    He looks ten years older than he is.

  • Bill_Perdue

    Trump is in trouble. About as much trouble as Sanders, Warren and all the other Democrats.

    They’re all melting. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uQJ8WrKnLUs

    That’s a good thing.

  • Demosthenes

    No and modesty forbids me from answering.

  • Martha Bartha

    Are you an MD? Or just very astute & perceptive?

  • Martha Bartha

    That’s why he has a hottie, much younger wife, right?

  • Martha Bartha

    He’s overweight!

  • tommo

    Yeah but he does get a lot of exercise climbing in and out of golf carts. He does that more than most pros. That’s why he has such a svelte physique.

  • Zorba

    Yes, they certainly are.

  • Demosthenes

    Verbal incoherence and an inability to think are side effects of mini strokes.

  • Outspoken1

    Maybe Pence is involved. Just one step away from the Presidency! (sarcasm)

  • Zorba

    I’ve always thought, for the same reasons you mentioned, that instead of or in addition to a heart attack, he is a major stroke waiting to happen, and he has had some smaller strokes and is suffering from vascular dementia.

  • Demosthenes

    Trump is 71, doesn’t exercise, is morbidly obese, and eats poorly. He’s a heart attack waiting to happen. At the very least, Trump’s inability to express coherent thoughts, read, analyze, and retain new information reveals cognitive decline.

  • NotConvinced

    I apologize. It’s not right to fat shame the mentally ill.

  • NotConvinced

    Would it hurt to eat a carrot once in while, you lard ass in the Dump House?

  • NotConvinced

    Not easy to carry that load around when you’re 70 years old is it Puddin. Ha Puddin and Putin.

  • Dover Bill

    Did ya feel an urge to take a shower when ya got home?

  • Dover Bill

    Give the fat-fuck a break!

    After all, he is standing, is he not?

  • SkippyFlipjack

    Doesn’t sound like he’s wheezing to me. Sounds more like he’s drawing breath in through clenched teeth or a tight mouth. Symptoms of his seething rage.

  • brel1

    Being over weight sometimes contributes to breathing problems. Being stressed because of pending investigations could be a cause as well.

  • Sam Miller

    Maybe side affects from
    sleeping to close to a drafty hole like when he had the sniffles in the debates?

  • I watched it live. It was weird.

  • Daniel Quackenbush

    I’m no Trump fan at all, but these videos could be misleading. It’s difficult to tell if Trump is breathing in as he is starting to say something, rather than just wheezing as the video implies. Trump is dishonest, so I hope the videos are not trying to mislead. If they are, we need to stop and take the high road. I’m not saying they are misleading for sure, but “doctored” videos don’t help because we can’t see the context surrounding the breaths or wheezing, whichever it is.

  • Duke Woolworth

    Maybe sensitive to some weed pollen outside filtered, condition air? Allergy to the truth?

  • Quilla

    Nope. Not OK. Never has been.

    He’s pure projection.
