Trump stroke truthers are now parsing the president’s signature


Did Trump have a stroke yesterday?

On Wednesday, President Donald Trump announced that he would recognize Jerusalem as Israel’s capital, a move that broke with almost every other nation on Earth.

But it was the last 30 seconds of his speech—and the signature he penned afterward—that caused the biggest drama online.


Numerous ideas were floated in the wake of Trump’s face going red and saying the “United Shayyzts,” but the two most predominant accusations were Trump was either wearing dentures that slipped out or had a stroke.

People made some jokes about the dentures.

While that is funny, the president possibly losing control of his faculties while in office is a much more terrifying prospect than his teeth slipping out. There’s no proof of anything like that happening except for what we saw. But some think they’ve found incontrovertible evidence in the form of Trump’s signature he made on the Jerusalem proclamation.

The signing came immediately after Trump’s slurred speech, and how it looks is telling—in a Loose Change, 9/11 truther way.

Here’s a side-by-side from America Blog, a blog that is (presumably) about America.

At her briefing today, Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders was asked about Trump’s speech and said it was merely a case of dry mouth. She was not asked about the signatures because the press are complicit sheeple.
