My best guess is Trump needs glasses, and refuses to wear them

There was another awful mistake that I cannot remember. That is why he said, "took over the airports" in my opinion. He cannot see the teleprompter clearly, and didn't practice the speech. (Another sign of a lazy, stupid person) This is an important speech, and he did not read it ahead of time. So, he didn't know what was in the speech. If he knew, then he would have read it correctly. Trump would not being made fun of. Too lazy to read it ahead of time, or too prideful to wear glasses. He would rather be made fun of, then read the speech correctly. The other mistake was just as stupid and was caused by the same idea. He couldn't read the teleprompter clearly. (important note:....This is my opinion, no proof whatsoever], because I don't know nothing ) just makes a lot of sense, and explains the "why" of what happened.

1. I wish someone had a copy of the original script

I suspect his handlers will just ignore the whole situation, as if he never said any of that nonsense.

4. You are correct. His handlers will ignore this, because if they tell him, "to wear his glasses"

Trump will viciously put them down. That is who Trump is. So full of vanity, that he refuses to wear glasses (if this opinion is correct) instead, he looks incredibly "stupid" for reading a speech wrong. Not the first time. If this opinion is correct, then it won't be the last time either.

6. I've seen one photo of him wearing glasses. He seemed startled that he was spotted.

He was in a car with the window closed but you can definitely see he's wearing specs.

3. I never read anything given tome without reading it a few times but even if I were that lazy

that airports was never coming out of my mouth - he is not mentally competent.

9. He does not give a damn. Nobody is going to tell him what to do. If, one of his aids said,

"Read this ahead of time." then that aid would get smacked down. So, they leave him alone. That is another reason why this could have happened. The aids were afraid to tell him he needed to read it ahead of time.

he can't think when he is telling US about 18th and 19th Century airports.

10. Thank You for those pictures. It shows he needs them.

The top picture is significant. He is riding in a car, and perhaps he wants to read something. He is alone and it is private so he puts the glasses on. I don't know about the second one. Trump doesn't care if he makes stupid mistakes, because he never apologizes for nothing. He just looks stupid. He would rather embarrass himself and his country than put on glasses so he can read clearly. Or take the time to read the speech a couple of times ahead of time. Either of those would have prevented this error. But obviously, Trump doesn't give a sh*t. He will never apologize for anything he says.

12. The second pic was before the New Hampshire primary

There are other pics showing him reading the New York Times. And this one was in Iowa before the caucus - he was reciting the anti-immigrant poem "The Snake":




Yes, the idiot needs glasses to read. (He actually admitted it in a legal deposition)

11. You dont see too many politicians who wear spex

For example from earlier pics you can see that Hillary Clinton wore thick specs.
She may have switched to contacts of had refractive surgery
Some do-Bernie, Franken, McConnel but most dont.

The rich are now having surgeries to correct their vision. Lasik and clear lens exchange with bifocal implants so they dont even need reading glasses

Rick Perry ditches glasses for portrait, defends Trump
PAUL J. WEBER
May 6, 2016

AUSTIN, Texas (AP) — Ditching his now-famous black glasses Friday for his official Texas portrait, former Gov. Rick Perry is back looking like his old self but sounding far different when it comes to former presidential rival Donald Trump.

After the painting was unveiled at the state Capitol, Perry defended his enthusiastic change of heart this week about the presumptive GOP nominee. He had once called the billionaire businessman a “cancer to conservatism” but now says he’d be willing to work in a Trump administration, even as vice president.

Trump has made no such public overtures to the longtime Texas governor, who acknowledged he hasn’t spoken to Trump in months. Perry was among the first 2016 contenders to drop out of the crowded Republican field, but his short-lived campaign attacked Trump harder than most in the early stages of the race.

Trump, who once said that Perry only began wearing glasses so “people will think he’s smart,” tweeted “Thank you Rick!” after Perry’s endorsement.

tRump--No, its not

Doc--I'm sorry, it is

tRump--Do I have to make an executive order to prove it?

Doc--Alrighty, then. An, E it is.

15. IMO not good enough excuse.

An intelligent person would know the history and that there weren't airports back then and that the Star Spangled Banner didn't occur during the Revolutionary War.

16. I tend to agree. Watching that key passage, he appeared to be squinting his raccoon eyes

That fake tan looked horrendous

18. Does a normal human being need a teleprompter to remind them there were no airports during

the Revolutionary War? I realize the guy is half brain dead, but this is a fact my senile cat could meow about.

19. The words on his Teleprompters are very large

I saw a speech he made inside the White House where the camera wandered to show the people who were sitting and it showed a Teleprompter screen. The words were huge. As big as the top line on an eye exam chart. He needs glasses.

The size of the words made it so there were very few words displayed so it explains why he does those awkward pauses where there are no commas or periods.

It also explains why he prefers to do his strange stream of consciousness rambling.
