#TrumpIsUnwell trends on Twitter and the president couldn’t help but respond with a tweeted excuse

After Donald Trump was mercilessly mocked on social media for two incidents at his West Point commencement address yesterday that suggested that perhaps the president was suffering from some undisclosed neurological disorder, he wasn’t smart enough to leave the topic alone to be overtaken by whatever next outrage soon to be perpetrated by his administration.

Instead, he decided to issue a tweeted excuse that was mocked just as widely as the original actions that inspired the hashtag #TrumpIsUnwell to shoot to the top of the trending chart on Twitter.

In case you missed the hoopla yesterday, the controversy began when, during his commencement speech, Trump needed two hands to lift a glass of water to his lips and then, immediately after his address, was seen taking very unsteady steps down a long exit ramp from the stage where his podium.

As Vox‘s Arron Rupar so adroitly points out, none of Trump’s lame excuses bear scrutiny beyond their function as face-saving devices for a president whose obvious physical and mental decline was on full display at the commencement ceremony, a needlessly risky exercise in this pandemic that was largely seen as an ego-boosting maneuver for the president.

Other Twitter commentators were equally unconvinced by Trump’s description of his harrowing journey down that potentially deadly ramp.

The president of the United States is displaying symptoms of obvious physical and mental dysfunction and the administration is in full denial with its eyes still on the November elections in which Trump is polling so poorly that his own staff is hiding the results of each new negative assessment of his re-election odds.

While some may be loathe to attribute any of Trump’s erratic behavior and evil policies on any sort of inherent medical condition rather than on his moral deficiencies and privileged lack of discipline, the signs of actual physical and mental impairment are all there on video for the world to see.

Trump should stop by the Walter Reed National Military Medical Center on his way back from his birthday golfing grip to his Bedminster, New Jersey resort and complete that annual physical he’s been delaying for so long.

More importantly, the results of his tests need to be released to the American public who deserve to know if their Commander-in-Chief has gone non compos mentis on us, particularly since this man is trying to win four more years in the White House.

Instead of birthday cards today for the now 74-year-old president, perhaps Trump’s powerful friends should be sending him “Get Well Soon” greetings…and urge him to seek treatment after resigning to take care of his health.
