    Is Donald Trump Showing Early Signs of Alzheimer's Disease?

    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?

    I think I get the gist of your intention by the question. But I somehow wonder if making mockery of Trump by suggesting he has this tragic disease is kind of being insensitive to the many many who suffer and their caretakers.
    But the answer is a definite no. What you consider bizarre behavior are not indicators.
    Wow that was a fast comment.
    But I think I could go into any stressful office setting and say the same things about half the people there. The other half are in therapy or on medications. LoL

      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.

      John
      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 ~

    Well, if he got Alzheimer then if he is elected as President, he is not able to serve, the Vice President would have to rule on his behalf.

      Why do people keep using the terms "rule" or "reign". The President serves, he is not a king or dictator.

    What an inappropriate question - I've seen the effects of Alzheimer's first hand and it's not a matter to make jokes, innuendos, or even remote references to.  Politics in America has degraded to a level no one expected but some things that are taboo should stay that way.

      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.

    When you answer the SAME Question with about four or five different ANSWERs within a short time span, as Trump consistently does, you're clearly exhibiting the signs of either a "Pathological LIAR" or a mentally compromised individual with Psychological Disorders ~ In either case, you are Disqualified from the Presidency of the United States ~ That aside, Trump does indeed have Anger Problems, Insecurity Issues, and other Psychological Problems which render him "Unfit" for Public Office, that's just obvious ~

    Very LEGITIMATE Question because I'm sure many Americans are Observing the same severe "Memory Lapses" etc as the Questioner is and it could indeed be a serious issue ~

    I don't think he has Alzheimer's, but I do think he has some kind of personality disorder or mental illness. No need to go into an explanation because he does that so well himself.
    When he picks a running mate, people had better study that person very carefully because he/she could succeed Trump if Trump is elected President. Let's hope it is Sarah Palin. She would ensure defeat.

    Scott Adams of Dilbert fame has discussed this extensively in his blog. Part of it is off the cuff answers that make him look authentic, part of it is vague answers to keep the press from pinning him down, part of it is A/B testing of ideas and reading the audience before repeating it for greater effect.

    Is this a question about character assination?

      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" ~
