Is Trump suffering from untreated neurosyphilis? New details add steam to theory of his erratic behavior

Published

on

The cause of Donald Trump’s erratic behavior has been the subject of rampant speculation for years.

Some have pointed to the hair-loss drug Trump has admitted to taking, others have pointed to a 1992 article in Spy magazine which alleged that Trump was prescribed amphetamines as diet pills by a notorious Manhattan doctor.

This week, two women have come forward with allegations that Trump had unprotected sex with them while he was married. Ex-Playboy model Karen McDougal and porn star Stormy Daniels have both said Trump had unprotected sex with them during the same weekend in Lake Tahoe.

That has led to chatter about an old theory that Trump’s behavior may be tied to untreated syphilis.

This is not a new theory. In a February 2017 article for The New Republic, a California doctor posited that Trump may have untreated late-stage neurosyphilis.

“Commonly recognized symptoms include irritability, loss of ability to concentrate, delusional thinking, and grandiosity. Memory, insight, and judgment can become impaired. Insomnia may occur. Visual problems may develop, including the inability of pupils to react to the light. This, along other ocular pathology, can result in photophobia, dimming of vision, and squinting. All of these things have been observed in Trump.”

A Swedish doctor joked about the same thing on Twitter. Comedian Chelsea Handler went to investigate the theory.

Trump has publicly discussed this possibility given his lifestyle. In 1997, Trump joked that avoiding STDs was “my personal Vietnam.”

“It is a dangerous world out there—it’s scary, like Vietnam. Sort of like the Vietnam era. It is my personal Vietnam. I feel like a great and very brave solider.”

Other politicians who have been theorized to have untreated neurosyphilis include Hitler , Ugandan cannibal Idi Amin and Mussolini.

It’s worth pointing out that the stigma around STDs is silly and dangerous, and that if Trump has syphilis he could be cheaply and efficiently treated with Penicillin.

Pentagon gives senators classified briefing on UFOs reported by the Navy

Published

on

While it might sound like something out of "The X-Files," Navy pilots have been seeing UFOs, and U.S. Senators now want to know what's happening.

According to Politico, three more senators met with Pentagon officials for a classified briefing Wednesday about encounters pilots are having with unidentified aircraft. It seems the Pentagon is getting more and more requests by officials with high clearances to figure out what's happening.

The crafts are, at their most basic, nothing more than "unidentified aircraft," and while it isn't likely they're little green men, there are some senators who might have concerns about whether these UFOs are actually a foreign adversary.

Wall Street Journal issues blistering editorial asking Trump what the point is of a second term

Published

on

In a blistering editorial, the Wall Street Journal is asking President Donald Trump what the point of a second term is since he hasn't done anything in his first term.

During his rally in Orlando Tuesday, Trump repeated the same tired lines and same tired policies from 2016. The "Promises Made, Promises Kept" slogan shown over the crowd, yet the supporters didn't understand the irony.

"The most striking fact of his speech was how backward looking it was," the editorial board said. "Every incumbent needs to remind voters of his record, Mr. Trump more than most because the media are so hostile."

‘Crosses a line’: New York Times publisher unleashes on Trump for accusing paper of ‘treason’

Published

on

On Wednesday, New York Times publisher A. G. Sulzberger wrote a blistering editorial in the Wall Street Journal, saying that President Donald Trump's latest attack on his paper "crosses a line."

First it was the "the failing New York Times." Then "fake news." Then "enemy of the people," wrote Sulzberger. "President Trump's escalating attacks on The New York Times have paralleled his broader barrage on American media. He's gone from misrepresenting our business, to assaulting our integrity, to demonizing our journalists with a phrase that’s been used by generations of demagogues. Now the president has escalated his attacks even further, accusing the Times of a crime so grave it is punishable by death.
