Donald Trump’s Afghanistan Troop Speech ‘Typical Of Dementia, Lack Of Awareness,’ Psychiatry Professor Says

Mod: Hundreds of millions in taxpayer dollars are being spent to cart this old fool around the world. For absolutely no good effect.

Donald Trump’s Afghanistan Troop Speech ‘Typical Of Dementia, Lack Of Awareness,’ Psychiatry Professor Says (Inquisitr link): Donald Trump made a surprise visit to United States troops in Afghanistan on Thanksgiving Day. There, he delivered a speech to the troops that reportedly focused largely on his own claimed accomplishments. According to University of Texas Southwestern psychiatry professor John M. Talmadge, the speech was filled with “‘I am great’ stock phrases,” and in the psychiatrist’s view have grown “stale from overuse and inaccuracy.”

Taking to his Twitter account, Talmadge warned that Trump’s purported self-congratulatory speech in Afghanistan contained “vague claims of vapor-like achievement” that are “typical of dementia, lack of thinking, [and] lack of awareness.”

According to Talmadge, “every audience looks alike” to Trump. As a result, he is likely to deliver the same type of speech to troops in Afghanistan as to supportive audiences in the United States.

Talmadge has been a frequent critic of Trump, issuing repeated warnings regarding Trump’s mental fitness to hold office. The professor notes, however, that his opinions are his own and not necessarily reflective of the University of Texas Southwestern where he is employed.

Trump’s speech to the troops also contained jabs at prior administrations, telling the soldiers that they were fighting for a United States that is, he said, “doing well as opposed to something that was not doing well just a number of years ago,” according to a Slate account of the remarks.

Talmadge has warned in previous remarks that Trump suffers from mental and cognitive impairments that make it impossible for him to formulate a “vision” or “plan” due to his inability, as claimed by Talmadge, to engage in “abstract thinking.”

Trumpian brain failure is hard for normal people to understand because for normal people, abstract thought is natural, baked in, largely unnoticed,” Talmadge said earlier, as quoted by NewsweekTalmadge went on to describe “normal” thought processes as the ability to perceive “consequences, assess risk, [and] make rational decisions.”

    1. We know! Why are 63 mil people voting for a man who should medicated and watched at all times? The country is going to hell in a hand basket because the guy at the helm shouldn't be trusted to run anything.

  6. Trump has surrounded himself with ‘failsons’ starting with ‘dimwitted’ Don Trump Jr. and Kushner

    “One is not born a failson. Nor does one simply inherit the status of failson. No—failson status is earned through a display of equal parts incompetence, stupidity, and arrogance. And until his book, no person in America—or maybe even the world, so bursting at the seams with louche heirs and dissolute royals with no throne to sit their pampered arses on—illustrated all the facets of a failson better than Junior,” she wrote.

    “The New York Times denotes such bulk sales with an asterisk to let readers know that the sales were not organic. Junior, never one to be deterred by facts, immediately declared that this was part of a larger Times conspiracy against him. ‘I guess that’s their way of exerting a little bit of revenge by putting an asterisk without getting into the details,’ he sniffed,” she wrote before adding a sarcastic,” Yes Junior, The New York Times bulk purchasing policy is actually a conspiracy against you, the president’s large adult failson.”

  7. We finally have an answer to why so many homeless? With psy in practice like Talmadge from Texas Southwestern it is no wonder so many are left struggling in life.
    If Psychiatrist like this guy give their "medical" opinions with their box of Kleenex and pushing pills it is clear the doctor heal thyself is necessary and clear that this profession for this guy in particular is looking into his own life to fix what is broken within.
    TG the homeless can't afford to pay for these "services".

    1. You need to reply to 7:32's comment directly. Getting tired of having to enforce one of the few rules we have on this blog. If you cannot handle that level of responsibility then I suggest you find something else to do with your time.

  10. While (djt) sows dishonesty and discourse in the White House and America, yet the world is not immune from his twisted actions an tongue either. While America slides deeper in to debt along with chaos in it's economy, so grows unemployment rolls that spill out into the streets clogged with the homeless in 2019. This was summed up in the Bible also, beware of worshiping false gods and we all know what happened afterwards!

  11. Americans and other foreign nations can meddle in the up coming British elections, this appears to be a weakness in their election laws and the USA also.
    Just ask (djt) and you will see, Putin will give a media interview, soon.
