There have been many questions raised about Donald Trump's fitness to be Commander-In-Chief, both intellectually and emotionally. However, the NBC Hillary/Donald Debate last night left many people wondering whether Trump has the health and stamina to be President.
In addition to Trump's constant sniffling, mugging, and sipping of water, he looked completely worn out. His energy level was disturbingly low, and gone was his orange-glow that blends so well with the décor of his gold-gilded penthouse in Trump Towers.
Donald's inexplicable sniffling has gone viral. Was he sick-- or perhaps only allergic to a strong woman like Hillary?
In typical Trump fashion, he complained about having a defective microphone, reportedly stating "My mic was defective within the room. I wonder ... Was that on purpose? Was that on purpose?" Oh my-- he is seeing nefarious forces out to undermine Donald Trump!
In his defense, old codgers sometimes do suffer from paranoia. It may be recalled that prior to the debate, Trump questioned whether NBC moderator Lester Holt could be fair and impartial, asserting that Holt was a Democrat. Holt has reportedly been registered as a Republican since 2003. Nevertheless, Trump has now accused Holt of asking him "unfair questions."
In addition, in the past, Trump has complained that the federal judge presiding over a Trump University case is unfair because he is "Mexican," even though the judge was born in Indiana. And, of course, Trump has frequently claimed that the election will be rigged against him.
There are many previous examples of Trump's delusional behavior, including the crazy assertion that he saw thousands and thousands of people cheering on 9/11 from rooftops in New Jersey-- or an Iranian propaganda video showing $400 million cash paid by the US being unloaded from an airplane (a claim he later recanted). And let us not forget his conspiracy thoughts about Ted Cruz's father's alleged connection to Lee Harvey Oswald and the Kennedy assassination.
Last night he seemed to have had several senior moments. And every credible fact-checker has confirmed Trump's inability to accurately recall information, coupled with some disturbing memory losses about his own prior statements.
For example, the poor fellow forgot what he said in the past that "The concept of global warming was created by and for the Chinese in order to make U.S. manufacturing non-competitive." And he told Hillary, "No wonder you've been fighting -- no wonder you've been fighting ISIS your entire adult life." Interesting, since ISIS didn't come into existence until 2004. Hillary is apparently much younger than she appears.
And this bizarre behavior continues to manifest itself-- he has actually convinced himself that he won the debate last night.
Trump received a great deal of criticism when he mocked a handicapped reporter. Shouldn't Hillary be held to the same standard? It is shameful the way she treated poor Donald Trump last night-- taking advantage of a feeble and disoriented old man in such a cruel and calculated manner.
