WH Responds: Trump's Throat Was Dry During Speech, 'Nothing To It'

Donald Trump Arm Out

Trump, in a major foreign policy shift, announced that the US would move its embassy in Israel from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem. But the pronunciation of those words appeared to slur. Multiple sclerosis, muscular dystrophy, Lyme disease, Huntington's, Myasthenia gravis, amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, Parkinson's and Wilson's disease all can cause it. Medication can impact speech, as can drugs and alcohol.

CNN spoke with two medical doctors. "There is clearly some abnormalities of his speech", he said. "I'm just saying, 'Can you imagine?'"

Michael de Riesthal, a speech and language pathologist, agrees. "The distortion of his articulation, though, is unknown in etiology".

AMERICAblog editor John Aravosis reports it wasn't only Trump's speech that was disturbing.

De Riesthal said the distortion was particularly noticeable when the President said "United States". He goes on to emphasize that there's no shame in wearing dentures - but for a man with the supposed vanity of Donald Trump, actually, there's a lot of shame. However, it definitely "seemed too unusual for something like that to be dry mouth". After all, the president and his team must have crafted the speech and made the decision about Jerusalem knowing that they would be heavily criticized for it.

Noah concluded that instead of a Mueller investigation, we need a "molar investigation" to get to the bottom of Trump's freakish speech.

"All of that is relevant because he doesn't appear to have any motor weakness", Gupta said. Noah said. And, of course, a hashtag was launched.

"As disturbing as it was to watch Donald Trump add fuel to the Middle East conflict", Noah said on the Comedy Central show, "It was even more disturbing to watch the conflict between Donald Trump's teeth and his tongue".

Shah, pressed on the health concerns, dismissed suggestions the slurring signaled a deeper problem.
