A Medical Theory for Donald Trump’s Bizarre Behavior
Many mental health professionals believe the president is ill. But what if the cause is an untreated STD?
Valuable diagnosis here:
Physicians like me have also taken notice of Trump’s bizarre, volatile behavior. Given our experience, we can’t help but wonder if there’s a medical diagnosis to be made. After all, many medical conditions exhibit their first symptoms in the form of psychiatric issues and personality changes. One condition in particular is notable for doing so: Neurosyphilis.
Does Trump suffer from this condition? I cannot, of course, establish this diagnosis from a distance.
Tertiary syphilis sometimes produces insanity and delusions of grandeur. Trump appears insane and has delusions of grandeur.
And that’s the extent of the diagnosis.
At which point allow me to add my own diagnosis, one that has the advantage of coming from someone with no medical training at all. It’s extremely unlikely that we’re going to see tertiary syphilis is someone exposed to the regular use of antibiotics common in the last 50 years of American medicine.
