President Donald Trump’s health became the subject of speculation again yesterday in his visit to West Point Military Academy to address the 2020 graduating class. At the lectern he was seen having to use two hands to take a sip of water, after first trying to hold the glass with one hand. In his speech he seemed to struggle with the pronunciation of Gen. Douglas MacArthur’s name and then he seemed unsteady as he descended a ramp that did not have a handrail.
Dr. Bandy Lee, a Yale psychiatrist took to twitter to analyse these physical patterns suggesting that these could be a neurological sign that was concerning enough to require a brain scan.
For his part Trump blamed his unsteadiness on the ramp being slippery.
