Trump Just Got Lost Walking To His Limo

In fact, were it not for Trump’s long history of cheating, lying, and race-baiting, dementia would be the most acceptable excuse for his erratic behavior, gold fish-like attention span, and apparent disinterest in his job.

Of course, Trump’s despicable behavior is far from new, and even as he appears to be suffering the affects of age combined with poor diet and no exercise, he remains a singularly unsympathetic figure.

Like him or hate him, we should all be able to agree that a man who gets lost on the way to the car — while standing at the car — should not be Commander-in-Chief.

Sometimes stories with titles like this are little more than click bait, but in this instance the title is an EXACT description for what you see in the video. The unduly selected President of the United States frequently appears confused or lost. Worrisome to say the least.

I'm sure he will tweet something like the Secret Service told him to go to another car, etc., but logically, he would be safer to go to the car at the foot of the plane's steps. Nothing else makes sense.

He's got mental issues and he is not fit.

77. Think we need to hold our collective

.....horses.

I think there really is an alternative way to view this video.

He lingers out of camera sight for a few seconds at the limo doors, at the base of the stairs---then goes off to screen left. I think he was expecting to meet someone he had planned to (Bannon, or Sanders, or whomever) and misunderstood where they were or was actually misdirected at the bottom of the stairs, and then comes to realize or is told, person X is in the limo already or in another direction. Then he makes the gesture, " "Oh yeah--there you are", and he goes back.

I think this is a non-event. The optics fit our senile narrative but it's not a slam-dunk, IMO.

146. Yeah, but that doesn't make sense. There is NOBODY there, within eyesight, that Trump could be

walking out to "meet." He wouldn't notice this before he started (and continued) walking in a weird, aimless way? Even if there was some plan to "meet someone," which seems very unlikely to me given the necessary security and where the presidential vehicle is situated, Trump looks confused, and he wouldn't walk aimlessly towards someone who is quite obviously not there.

It will be a nightmare trip for the country but eventually they would have to hospitalize him if that were true. Then I suspect the 25th Amendment would go into effect and Pence would become President.

Don't get me wrong, I despise the man but I hope he doesn't have Alzheimer's.

16. Sundowning

The term "sundowning" refers to a state of confusion occurring in the late afternoon and spanning into the night. Sundowning can cause a variety of behaviors, such as confusion, anxiety, aggression or ignoring directions. Sundowning can also lead to pacing or wandering.

Sundowning isn't a disease, but a group of symptoms that occur at a specific time of the day that may affect people with dementia, such as Alzheimer's disease. The exact cause of this behavior is unknown.

Either way, we don't feel not one OUNCE of bad for him after the years of havoc he put on Barack Obama or the Obama's in general. He has no business being FAKE Cray-Cray POTUS with our Nuclear Codes and needs to be REMOVED, IMMEDIATELY.

11. I wonder how they will try to explain this one away?

Last edited Wed Jul 5, 2017, 04:19 AM - Edit history (1)

I see 3 possibilities.

1.) "He had another limo waiting just off camera."

2.) "He was testing his security team to see if they were paying attention."

3-) "He was going to walk to his residence, since the house at Mar-a-Lago is so near the helipad."

The fact that Air Force One is a 747, not a helicopter and that Mar-a-Lago is not on the Potomac temporarily slipped his mind."

142. There's another possible scenario I thought of

Just before landing, he thought he'd show how ethnically aware he was, but instead of a caramel macchiato, ordered a caramel arrabbiato. The AF1 steward just rolled his eyes and said, "anything you say, Mr. President," and gave him what he ordered. Halfway down the steps, he started to suffer the consequences of his mistake, and was desperately looking for a portable toilet to rid himself of the predictable result.

70. I witnessed it through both of my inlaws and it's quite

 

alarming.

In the case of my mother-in-law, she had mild, early stage dementia. Mostly she showed signs of forgetfulness and repetitive talk during conversations.

Nothing serious, and nothing alarming, until she was diagnosed with uterine cancer.

What I learned was that simple anesthesia in the elderly can turn a mild case of dementia into a full blown case.

She emerged from the surgery in a full blown case of dementia. She was hallucinating, she was paranoid, she was hostile and angry.

None of the above were part of her usual personality. She went into surgery, somewhat normal for her age, and wound up in a nursing home and dying within one month.

My father-in-law was showing signs of early dementia for years. He was a class act, and a super sweet guy, but suddenly was showing signs of inappropriate behavior. Completely unexpected inappropriate behavior. He was a brilliant and successful accountant for a large firm. And we watched as he looked for the "f" button on the microwave, the 3:00am phone calls of paranoia, or the attempting to calculate our phone numbers left by his bedside, and then calling us to tell us the numbers didn't add up.

128. Silver Alert

Four years ago my SIL drove from Queens to see a friend on LI. Gone for 12 hours. She was found wandering around in Manhattan at 2 AM. Stopped a cop and asked where Queens Blvd. Lived in NYC her entire life and did not recognize the Empire State Building. A female LEO drove her back home. She told her husband to take away her car keys, and take her to a doctor.

She could not tell day from night and became very aggressive towards family members. Family would have to lock the door or she would go wandering out in the middle of the night thinking it was daytime.

My SIL had chemo about 20 years ago for throat cancer. The family believes that might have caused/contributed to her Dementia.

We took the car away. We let him keep the car keys, because they seemed very important to him.

My father-in-law started to wander, walking into people's homes, etc. We hired home health aides to be with him when we could not be, but eventually had to put in in an assisted living center.

80. I just showed this to my 12-year-old son.

We've been outside all afternoon, cut off from the news media. I got home at ten.

I maximized the video screen and called him in from watching cat videos (or whatever) on his tablet, and had him watch this. Just the video. No headline, or comments or anything. I didn't tell him what it was about, although he seemed surprised that I was watching a Fanta Menace video without swearing or obvious anger.

"So, what did you see?" I asked when it was done (all paraphrasing).

"Trump didn't go in the car."

"Why do you think that is?"

"He looked lost. But the car was right in front of him."

"So what do you think that means?"

"He's sick. He has a disease affecting his mind and maybe his body as well. I mean, the car was there."

"Does he remind you of anybody?"

My son proceeds to name my great-uncle who died a year or so ago from advanced Parkinson's. The last time my son saw him alive, my great-uncle was in a nursing home where he walked around constantly while drooling and confused.

When I asked him about his great-grandmother, who was suffering from Alzheimer's until she died 2˝ years ago, he did mention that it was kind of like the residents in the special secure wing of the nursing home where she was staying.

That orb that he lovingly fondled in Saudi Arabia was actually a joint Saudi/Russia mind-control device. He's been put in a trance, and only awakens when someone calls him and says "Your KFC order is ready. The meat is lovely, dark, and deep, but you have miles to go before you eat. Miles to go before you eat, Trumpsky." He then awakens to perform the task he was programmed for -- the destruction of the United States.

Unfortunately, Charles Bronson is dead so we can't count on him for much help this time.

Trump is a cancer, and if there's any hope in the universe, he's a cancer that has Alzheimer's or some other progressively debilitating neurological condition. I will laugh and mock him every time he can't find an unmissable 30 foot vehicle or he forgets when he's supposed to put his hand on his heart or he babbles like a fucking idiot on internationally broadcast television. It is not ridiculous or bigoted to hold this stupid, incompetent racist fuckhead to the same standard that he applies to others.

Trump, in stark and undeniable contrast, is an incompetent fuckhead constantly out of his depth who increasingly demonstrates traits and actions common to someone suffering organic or functional neurological impairment. You dismiss it as an assumption, but of course it's not an assumption at all; it's *CONCLUSION* drawn after weeks and months of conspicuously unhinged behavior.

If Herr Trump is suffering from a neurological impairment consistent with the increasingly unhinged behaviors and tendencies that he increasingly demonstrates, then it is the business of every person on the fucking planet to make sure that he is unable to inflict further harm. Frankly, when we're talking about the goddamn President of the United States, a different standard necessarily applies.

Despite your fondness for scolding, it is absolutely not ableism to require that a person be *able* to perform the job that they are required to perform.

That is exactly what is happening here, just as it is exactly what would have happened if anyone had seen FDR in a wheelchair. There would have been assumptions made about his capacity to serve as president with a miniscule amount of information - the visible image of a man using a wheelchair. Assuming disability or illness and therefore, inferiority is exactly what this desperate and hateful strategy to find a Dx is all about.

No? Then you're every bit as guilty of ableism as you imagine me to be. Why else would you give preference to a surgeon who doesn't suffer from dementia? Do you perhaps subscribe to the mad notion that people must have the ability to perform the job that they're responsible to perform?

"There would have been assumptions made about his capacity to serve as president with a miniscule amount of information - the visible image of a man using a wheelchair."

Trump is in a wheelchair? That's news to me. Please, share a picture.

Of course, perhaps you were making a weak analogy by providing an irrelevant example.

I haven't diagnosed that incompetent idiot fuckhead, either; I've simply observed--correctly--that he increasingly exhibits behaviors consistent with neurological impairment. I am assessing his behavior; I am not offering a diagnosis, beyond noting--again, correctly--that he is dangerously (and perhaps catastrophically) unhinged.

You seem very keen on excusing mental lapses by a man able to start a war an errant tweet. I am less comfortable trusting in his imaginary good health and well-being. I will accept the risk of drawing an incorrect conclusion about his mental state.

But please feel free to continue scolding.

Both a rooted in superficial assumptions based on visual observations with zero direct objective evidence.

Your comfort level in making these assumptions is the reason why the MO state government knows they can get away with policies that will lock people away in nursing homes. The public doesn't care because they've seen how much space those people take up, and they know from those observations that they do not want to share space or public resources with "those people."

Yes Trump is dangerous. Making stuff up is not going to get him removed from office or further damage his already dismal credibility to the point of rescuing the US. What you are doing is contributing to rhetoric that reinforces the existing cultural perception that disabled lives are not to be valued.

2. That person is in a wheelchair for some other reason

If I see a person that a person is in a wheelchair constantly for a year or more, I will conclude:

1. That person is in a wheelchair because it facilitates movement

If I see someone fail to locate his car one time, as I did briefly at the grocery store over the weekend, I will assume:

1. That person is unable to locate their vehicle.

If I see someone fail to locate his car when his car is a huge, unique model directly in front of him at the base of the stairs to his personal gigantic aircraft and parked exactly where it is always parked and exactly where he was told it would be, AND if the person exhibits a long history of poor impulse control, cognitive impairment, stunted communication skills and ill-managed temper, I will likely conclude that:

1. Something is amiss with this person's cognitive ability


After half a dozen posts I can see that you want this to be a case of me taking one brief glance at one of Trump's behaviors, and you want to imagine that I thereby conclude that all people of different ability are incompetent to perform any job whatsoever.

That is not the case, however, and I won't apologize for concluding that Trump is a stupid incompetent fuckhead.


And you didn't answer my question: would you submit to brain surgery by a neurosurgeon suffering from unchecked dementia?

Why? Or why not?

163. Yes, I am assuming you are not a doctor who has examined Trump

Is that unfair? Your rhetoric reflects the way US culture stereotypes and treats people with disabilities. If you have ever felt pity for a person with a disability or thought of them as an inspiration, you are an avid carrier of damaging stereotypes.

How would I know that said surgeon had dementia? If I had only my uniformed assumptions to go on, I would be a fool to not have a brain tumor removed by someone who I made up a DX for.

165. Please show me where I have offered a formal diagnosis

After one post, you saw fit to diagnose me as ableist. Are you an attorney? A psychologist? On what basis did you form that assumption? How dare you pigeonhole me!

I gave an assessment that was (and remains) consistent with Trump's behavior overall. If you reacha different assessment, good for you.

"If you have ever felt pity for a person with a disability or thought of them as an inspiration, you are an avid carrier of damaging stereotypes."
Well, that's horseshit. If I have ever done a thing, than I am now an avid doer of that thing?

And you still didn't answer the question--why?

The question was not "if you sort of guess that the surgeon has dementia." The question was, if the surgeon *has* unchecked dementia.

Would you submit to brain surgery by that surgeon? If not, then how can you engage in such ableist discrimination? And, if you would decline to go under the knife for that surgeon, then are you an avid carrier of damaging stereotypes?

168. Ableism is a matter of assuming bodily superiority

Whether it is a generalized assumption or speculation about a specific person evaluating their capabilities and claiming them to be inferior is the root belief that able bodied people are better. That is why FDR, and Mitch McConnell both hid their connection to the demonized demographic and it is why ordinarilly compassionate people are desperately trying to find a label that reflects incapacity to apply to Trump.
A lifetime's experience with being judged and valued based on perceptions and assumptions of my abilities has been more informative than anyone who does not live the experience can claim to know.

Maybe he wasn't sure if he was supposed to get into the car or not. There is no real way to know from the video what was going on.

I think the best thing to do is focus on the policy stuff and not out of context video clips where we impose our own view on what is happening based on speculation.

Every day Trump should be attacked for: health care policy, tax policy, environmental policy, foreign policy, administration connections to Russia, financial corruption, and so forth.

Here's another:

According to one attendee, Hillary Clinton doesn’t actually have pneumonia but possible Parkinson’s, MS or even Aids. “Probably from her husband messing around with that Magic Johnson,” one ardent Trump fan posited.

This is just not something we need to get into. This video shows nothing really. Personally, I think the nonsense he does on twitter and some of the things he has said in speeches have been a lot more indicative of problems.

But I'd avoid even going there, personally. Lots of real, undeniable things to focus on with respect to what he has done / will do as POTUS.

She was a presidential candidate attacked by a shit-stack of a human being based on nothing more than his own self-aggrandizement.

Trump's current example of incompetence is simply another on a long list of the obviously disqualifying (and seriously troubling) shortcomings of an idiot racist fuckhead who should never have been allowed within 500 miles of the Whitehouse. Every second that he occupies the office is a toxic blight on the country and the world.

Short of violence, I will advocate any and all steps to get him out of office, the more humiliating and traumatic for him, the better. Let him be mocked and ridiculed and belittled and cheapened until he literally pisses himself from embarrassment.

If there is one constant in the world of DU, it's that a handful of righteous scolds will happily wag their collective finger at us whenever we aren't using the right salad fork to criticize the GOP.

129. No one in the universe has said that he should be removed because of this video

Find me one credible source who has said something to the effect of "Trump should be removed from office because he couldn't find the limo that was parked at the base of the stairs of his personal aircraft, with the door standing wide open for him, exactly where he was told it would be." Go on--I'll wait.

Instead, people are pointing to this as yet another example of behaviors and actions that reasonably call Trump's mental function into question. On its own it's comical (though the GOP would be calling for Obama's immediate resignation if he'd done it), but it's part of a larger and ongoing concern about Trump's health and capacity, especially since he hasn't been seriously evaluated.

I applaud your eagerness to scold Progressives, but I will continue to mock the stupid, incompetent racist fuckhead occupying the Whitehouse. And if he turns out to have Alzheimer's, you can bet your ass that I will mock him all the more relentlessly.


For the record, I've lost two close family members to Alzheimer's & Alzheimer's-related complications, and I have no compunctions about mocking the dangerous dumpster fire that the GOP has inflicted upon us.

I agree that several comments have called for Trump's removal in the wake of this latest episode, but I haven't seen any that have said that this incident *in itself* is sufficient justification to fire him.

That would explain appointing so many of his family around him, even though they had their own careers to worry about. Even if is intermixed with Russian bribes. But so his family can steer him and he basically turns things over to Jared to put on power point presentations, because he can't. Also, the White House decided last week that they would no longer let him do interviews, unless it was FOX, and to limit any access to him or allow him to speak unless absolutely necessary.

Nobody can legitimately explain what the hell he was doing, but it was obviously NOT what anyone there expected from the President of the United States, when his car is pulled right up to the end of the stairs... Which seems kind of odd, unless they were worried.
