If he were your father you would run, not walk

to the neurologist for an evaluation.

Might members of Congress be able to use this tone, this approach to push for a thorough evaluation of Trump?

I didn't have an opinion about Trump's cognitive decline until I watched Gartner's appearance on the David Pakman show (4/18/19).

John Gartner, co-founder of Duty to Warn, taught in department of psychiatry at Johns Hopkins Medical Center for 28 years. He argues that these (Trumps) really shocking signs would galvanize anyone to a state of emergency to get their father to a neurologist for a thorough assessment. His paraphasias are clinical signs, suggestive of intermediate to severe stage of dementia.

An Empirical Analysis of Popular Press Claims Regarding Linguistic Change in President Donald J. Trump. Author(s): Marc N. Coutanche, John P. Paulus. Frontiers in Psychology. (Nov. 21, 2018)

We followed prior work by statistically analyzing variables that have been sensitive to change in the unscripted speech of a former president (Berisha et al., 2015): count of filler words (“well,” “so,” “basically,” “actually,” “literally,” “um,” “ah/uh”) and NS nouns (non-specific nouns and pronouns including the word “thing”) and counts of unique nouns.

Trump reached under his podium and grabbed a glass with both hands. This time he kept them on the glass the entire time he drank, and as he put down the glass.

1. If he were my father I'd change my name and leave the country.

But I see your point.

6. Exactly!

We all know trump is con man, and I would not put it past him to fake some kind of health problem, like Dementia, to get off the hook, if he loses in 2020, to get out of any prosecution that may be waiting for him once he is out of office.

7. Meh, I do think he's getting senile

He's not faking, but that chart on the right showing "unique word usage"? I shows he's always been an ignoramus - or he prefers generic speech because his voters don't like them brainiac egghead college boys and their "unique words".

9. He's never been anything approaching brilliant, but the article cited in the OP

shows examples of how much he has deteriorated even from his previous mediocre capabilities. There was a time when he could at least form complete sentences and complete a thought. Now it's mostly disjointed word salads using the same verbal croutons over and over.

10. He's under a lot of stress!

What would convince me it's not an act is hearing some of his private phone conversations with his rich asshole golf buddies.

11. "Is Something Neurologically Wrong with Donald Trump?"

Let's say the answer is yes.

Then what do we say about 100-fucking-million Americans who support him.

Are they all neurologically affected, or is some other kind of evil involved?
