    First, you can not accurately diagnose anyone from afar but you can make observations. A number of articles have noticed changes in Trump’s speech. It is really obvious when you begin to compare the way he used talk, with his speeches...rambling, off topic, incomplete thought patterns.

    This leads to a question...should there be a way of looking at this in regular medical exams? Should candidates and sitting presidents be evaluated for this in some? Can it be done without coming off partisan ... violating rights or the Constitution??

    People are living longer and healthier into old age, and older people are running for office. The top two Dem contenders for office will be older than Trump should they win, Biden would be 78.

    Is Something Neurologically Wrong With Donald Trump?

    His speeches were rambling and incoherent even before the election. It's just the way he is, aren't you used to it by now? Small potatoes compared to Biden's cockroaches and leg hair speech...

    Is Coyote developing dementia since she quoted an article that will soon be two years old?

    Read the article, compare it with the way he used to talk, then tell me if you really think it hasn’t changed?

    It would be interesting to look at this in a non partisan way since the top Dem candidate could face a similar issue.

    As I just posted, you quoted an article from early 2018. Just exactly what were they comparing his speech patterns to?

    The freaking Atlantic?!?....Are you joking?

    And you want to talk about rambling and incoherent speech, try tuning in to Nanski Peloski's weekly press harangues.

    I don’t follow her speeches. Has there been a notable change in pattern and word usage?

    Why would it not matter? Where would be recent evidence if a problem existed?

    Oh, there is a problem. YOU!
