From the beginning of the Trump presidency, it was clear to any observer that something about Trump is not the same as any other president or, indeed, as any mentally healthy person at all. From his seemingly pathological need to lie to his extreme narcissism, Trump’s brain obviously does not function like most of the rest of us.
But most people chalked it up to simply having grown up in an extremely wealthy family, or the fact that he was given a huge amount of money by his father to start his own business career. Some even think it may be the fact that he’s failed over and over and over at nearly everything he’s ever tried, even before his massive failure of a presidency, and never been told anything but that he’s doing great.
Some attribute the glaring oversight of his own flaws to the fact that his lifetime of mediocrity has been rewarded with a television show modeled after his own boardroom and ultimately the presidency.
Dr. Steven Beutler has a different theory.
As speculation has grown more and more widespread — though psychologists and psychiatrists are reluctant to weigh in on specifics, due to the mental health code of ethics regarding evaluations of people you haven’t personally examined — Beutler believes that there must be some explanation for the bizarre, flighty, volatile behavior from Trump, and he thinks that behavior may be the signs of an undiagnosed and untreated sexually transmitted disease: Syphilis.
“Bad blood,” as they called it during the Tuskegee Syphilis Experiment when the government tested the effects of untreated neurosyphilis on black men they purposely infected, would explain everything, says Dr. Beutler:
Commonly recognized symptoms include irritability, loss of ability to concentrate, delusional thinking, and grandiosity. Memory, insight, and judgment can become impaired. Insomnia may occur. Visual problems may develop, including the inability of pupils to react to the light. This, along other ocular pathology, can result in photophobia, dimming of vision, and squinting.”
Let’s see, Twitter outbursts? Random topic changes in the middle of sentences? “Your favorite president” in multiple tweets? Tweeting at 4 in the morning, his time? All of this fits Trump to a T.
And don’t think I’m pointing fingers at either of the women that Trump paid off to keep them silent about their trysts before the election — if he’s been caught sleeping with those two, how many more might he have hooked up with more randomly?
Whatever it is, Trump is clearly suffering from something, and it makes him unfit to serve.
