A dry throat does not caused slurred speech, no matter what Dr. Sanders says.
We'll see how the GOP deals with his stroke.....and you don't get a physical for a dry throat.

Interesting that you, as a physician, think it could be a stroke. That was my thought as a layperson.

Of course, we would never see a medical report stating such.

Cowboy: the Democratic party has its problem, but it’s not nearly as bad as you paint it. I’m receptive to your idea about a party of moderates but in the short run, the Democratic Party is the only viable party that can check the republicans.

I would not vote for impeachment yet either.

The only other thing that I've commonly seen producing slurred speech is an overuse of alcohol or other drugs.

I've wondered what drugs the President consumes? Some of his behavior makes me think he uses stuff regularly.

Ken:

Have you considered this? It’s more plausible than a stroke or addiction.

ah yes, Jimmy Dore

highly insightful intellect, so binary, so deep..

"Given her record of bloodlust warhawkism, there is good reason to be more afraid of Hillary Clinton than Donald Trump."[10]

"You do not owe her your vote. Hillary Clinton is not the Democratic Party -- You are the Democratic party. You do not owe anybody your vote. She has got to earn your vote . . . We're not letting neoliberals f*#k over the Democratic Party anymore."[11]

Since the 2016 presidential election, "Jimmy Dore has lit into Democrats for blaming hackers for their loss, raised doubts about the credibility of intelligence agencies, and seen the heavy hand of war hawks hyping the Russia connection to destabilize Europe and the Middle East," according to the Washington Post.[12] Since Trump's inauguration, Dore "has zeroed in on corporate media and the hypocrisies of Democrats, rather than taking on Trump," according to Truthdig.[8]

LOL,
He's a product of private school systems like his Ed. Secretary Betsy DeVos.
Can't blame the public school system for this illiterate puppet. :)
He went here K-7;

Look at some videos of Trump speaking in the 80’s and 90’s—his mental decline is startling.

https://www.npr.org/2017/12/08/569118310/tax-bill-favors-adding-robots-over-workers-critics-say

Interesting discussion of investment in automation equipment vs training people for dealing with hi-tech equipment.

And more agreement that taxing the received value of education for grad students (which historically has not been taxed in part because they get low salaries compared to their non-academia peers) is a bad idea. Here's another perspective on that:
https://www.vox.com/first-person/2017/12/11/16751570/gop-tax-bill-grad-students

And why should university endowments (for non-profit higher education) be taxed when politicians can have non-profit charities in their name and funnel around money for their personal use without being taxed? This is a ridiculous dichotomy that lays bare the values and agenda of the group pushing it forward.

Re: the speech slurring....

I used to have a job where I was often up on stage giving presentations or speaking on panels at industry conferences. After extreme sleep deprivation with my first child, I remember a time or two being slow to comprehend what some participants were asking me, and slurring my speech almost like a drunk person because my brain was fried.

If that was the source (sleep deprivation), it would be consistent throughout the engagement, not an abrupt onset partway through speaking.

Trump's slurred speech is from the chomped GMO corn stuck between his teeth...Sara Sanders usually flosses Donald and in turn Donald gropes her...

The low spark of high-healed boys (and girls)

Dennis Rodman? if lye to ya has a voice, then why not The Worm

Dennis Rodman, self-described “friend for life” of North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un, says he knows what the man he calls “The Marshal” wants from the U.S. But he’ll only tell Donald Trump what that is.

As Newsweek reports: This was a long-time coming, but who deserves the honor more than Judge Roy Moore!

Robert Warren Ray, an avowed white supremacist who writes for Daily Stormer, a neo-Nazi website that has been kicked off over a dozen domains after the violence that transpired in Charlottesville, Virginia, this August, endorsed embattled Republican candidate Roy Moore on Monday. His reasoning? Moore, who faces allegations of sexual misconduct from eight women, in some cases from actions he allegedly took against them as teens, quoted Adolf Hitler “correctly.”

Ray was also elated by Moore telling the hosts of the radio show that getting rid of constitutional amendments after the tenth would “eliminate many problems” in the country. Eliminating these amendments, Ray notes, would, among other things, limit voting in America to an activity practiced only by white men.

“No more women and n-----s voting!” Ray wrote. “No more misquoting Hitler!"
