It’s been clear for quite some time now that Donald Trump is not in good health.
Whether it’s his frequent inability to pronounce the simplest words, his sweating like a pig, or his constant sniffing while speaking, watching Trump for a few minutes gives you the distinct impression that he’s not exactly a specimen of health.
More recently, however, Trump has seemed to get even more sickly. After all, he could hardly make it down the slight incline of a ramp when he spoke at West Point back in June. Here’s a reminder of how feeble he looked as he walked off the stage after giving his speech to the cadets:
So what exactly is wrong with Trump? That depends on who you ask, but a few people have begun speculating he’s had a series of small strokes that have rendered him unable to perform such simple tasks as speaking clearly, walking steadily, and standing for long periods of time without leaning forward like some sort of centaur:
And now we can add the opinion of Dr. Jack Brown, a physician who is also a body language and emotional intelligence expert. Brown was responding to a tweet from author Don Winslow, who noted Saturday that a whistleblower inside the administration had shared some information with him:
One of the benefits of making videos that garner 5 million+ views is that you hear from a lot of people, including whistleblowers inside Trump administration.
I’ve received three communications saying that during his term Trump has suffered a “series” of “mini-strokes.”

That led Dr. Brown to add this fascinating diagnosis of the president:
Trump has the Dark Tetrad (A-D):
F. Progressive Dementia
G. Multiple Small Strokes
H. Chronic & Severe Drug Abuse (note his chronic, intermittent, widely dilated pupils)

Granted, Dr. Brown has not personally examined Trump, so his opinion is based solely on watching how the president acts and moves. Then again, a doctor who was diagnosing Trump would also start by noting the patient’s actions and movements, especially if he suspect a major neurological event such a mini-stroke, which are also known as transient ischemic attacks (TIAs), and are defined as:
“A stroke that lasts only a few minutes. It happens when the blood supply to part of the brain is briefly blocked. Symptoms of a TIA are like other stroke symptoms, but do not last as long. They happen suddenly, and include. Numbness or weakness, especially on one side of the body.”
Ever wonder why Trump has steadfastly refused to release his full medical records? It’s probably because if the American electorate saw them, they’d demand he resign and at the least would never cast another ballot for him.
The only reason a person withholds information is to hide embarrassing or incriminating facts. And it would appear Donald Trump is sitting on more than a few of those.
