This question had crossed my mind during the primaries and was recently highlighted in an article, based on Donald Trump's statements, memory lapses and behavior in public. What do you think?

Both my parents suffered from this tragic disease, so I am certainly not making a mockery. Just based on observations and then reading an article that highlighted Trump losing his train of thought and lashing out angrily.
I have to agree with Eric. You seem to focus on Trump when all political campaigners have these symptoms.
You seem to have more of a problem on this subject than your suspected problem of Trump.
Food for thought. Google this topic. There are articles discussing it in regards to Trump's behavior.
I just scanned the headings for those articles. Interesting. Articles trying to make the case.
Just from those quick reviews I definitely have the disease, or at least you could make a case for it. Although my Dr. disagrees.
I am sorry Eric. It is a horrible disease. I hope with modern medicine it can be cured or at least treated, so people can live better lives in their later years. They are zeroing in on the cause finally and better treatments are in the works.
John, I definitely do not have it. But I would say most of us lose our train of thought sometimes and most folks lash out when they are angry. Certainly Clinton and Sanders have both done it many times.
There are signs that Trump's behavior, while traditionally boisterous, may be influenced by a cognitive disease. Time will tell. I just hope if elected he doesn't do something rash and not well thought out.
Reagan had it and the country survived, but he wasn't the lash-out, narcissistic type. People loved him. He also had Nancy. Trump has his daughter but....
Trump would absolutely do something "Rash or NOT well thought out", he's incapable of doing anything else, that's why they will NEVER give him the KEYs to OUR White House ~
Anyone who has followed Trump's "Bizarre Side Show" aka "Campaign to Destroy Congressional Republicans", will understand the FACT that he does indeed have severe Anger, Paranoia, Delusional & Mental LAPSE Issues which render him "UNFIT" ~
Why do people keep using the terms "rule" or "reign". The President serves, he is not a king or dictator.
If you read my responses, you'd see that I've seen the effects of Alzheimer's first hand too. it is appropriate when the person coming down with it may occupy the White House, given what they can do from that position.
