Donald Trump’s increasingly erratic behavior and outlandish comments continue to raise eyebrows and signal that the president is truly spinning out of control. Despite what Trump’s “doctor” says about his health, it’s clear to see that something is not right.
Various psychiatrists and mental health professionals have sounded the alarm on Trump’s mental state, and many have analyzed Trump’s unhealthy habits, from his diet of fast food and soda to his lack of exercise and inadequate sleep. Things don’t look good for Trump, especially to those who have known the president for a long time.
Many people who have worked closely with Trump over the long term have remarked about the president’s deteriorating health. One of these people happens to be Trump biographer Michael D’Antonio, who made a bombshell remark about the president’s health after witnessing the president shaking hands with French President Emmanuel Macron last year. It’s worth revisiting this moment, because what looks like a regular awkward power struggle with Trump may actually be a sign that the president is falling ill.
In an interview, D’Antonio broke down Trump’s freakishly long handshake with Macron, stating:
I also think that one thing that may not be noted by most people is that I suspect the president wanted to halt the little stroll that they were having.”
This would definitely explain why Trump and the French president were holding hands for several seconds as they walked in the video below:
D’Antonio explained further:
I’ve noted in recent weeks that he doesn’t seem as vigorous. He doesn’t seem as steady on his feet. When he’s walking with someone he’ll pause often to point out something or chat, but I also think he may be steadying himself so that’s something for us to watch out for.”
This is something that continues to come up, even in recent meetings as Trump has been reportedly late for major summits and discussions, unable to keep up with other world leaders. There have also been reports of Trump zoning out, sporting a blank stare, slurring his speech, or wandering off at events.
The president refuses to address his physical and mental health, which is having severe consequences and preventing him from doing his job. Trump spent most of his presidential campaign making fun of Hillary Clinton for her age and health, but he was clearly just trying to distract America from his own issues.
