.....FINALLY, to give a gaff filled press conference. Among other jewels, he can't remember the name of his local fish wrap, saying, after several furtive attempts, something like 'the state paper, or the newsroom'. And refers to a "reporter" as "Alex AP" and forgot the last name, but can, with effort, associate the Press outfit name, or initials. Loose, tangential associations. Looser as the weeks progress.
Not a single question on corrupt FBI type Struct, and VP Biden's raising the topic of possibly, illegally, using the Logan Act, in this regard, on the persecution of General Flynn. And the questions seemed pre-vetted, and of markedly softball caliber. No questions on his many gaffs.
Unfair of me to toss around diagnoses, sans clinical data, as many alt left behavioral health clinicians gladly did with President Trump. No longer hear any, as Boards of Medicine may have reminded of ethics. But anyone who has familiarity with progressive cognitive deficits, recognizes the many troubling signs. Alliteration, struggles to complete phrases---let alone sentences, less then tight associating---with grasping at substitutions, vast lapses in memories (recent and even long term), stammering while all of it goes on, and much more.
But at the end of the ordeal, we also see the typical frustration, followed by anger. Somewhat stumped by a more valid, substantial question, (Fox News?---Mr. MacEleny?), his response was to bark at this real reporter, what sounded like, ---'you are a lying dog face'. Troubling. From any clinical standpoint. See it all the time in any neurology ward, psychiatry clinic, or nursing care home.
Don't take a word from me on this. Just locate, watch and listen. And fret. Then think about your precious vote.
And, never ask this ex VP for directions.
