Trust me, I hate to be the one to sound conspiracy theory-ish. It’s just not my thing. I don’t believe in aliens. My heart doesn’t race at the thought of a staged moon landing. But I’ve got to be honest with you, folks. I’m really beginning to believe that we were bamboozled when it comes to the state of Donald Trump’s health.
No matter what anyone says, no matter who you are, there’s no denying that there is something wrong with that guy. He’s constantly mumbling and stumbling on his words, he can’t ever seem to walk straight, and frankly, the dude sweats an entirely unnatural amount.
Not to mention the fact that his most recent physical was less than conventional, to say the least. Considering he made a random stop at Walter Reed late last year, claiming it was for the “first half” of his annual physical, and then didn’t return to the hospital to finish the alleged physical until just a handful of weeks ago.
Now, ultimately, a report did come out after his second hospital visit, claiming that Donald Trump was healthy as a horse. And while I do my best not to feed into conspiracies of any kind, I just don’t think I’m buying it.
The stumbling and mumbling we often see out of the president are bad enough on their own. But an image that’s swirling around social media as we speak has really got me wondering.
In the photo, originally posted by the Associated Pressand now making the rounds on Twitter, it appears as though Donald Trump has a very large bruise on the top of his right hand — in pretty much precisely the spot that an individual would receive an IV.

Trump is also carrying a rather large stack of newspapers in the affected hand, which some believe could be an effort by his handlers to help hide the large bruise.
A handful of stray Twitter users have claimed that Donald made yet another unscheduled trip to Walter Reed this weekend. However, no reputable news outlets have confirmed this theory.
But that didn’t stop Twitter users from coming up with their own:
I’m an ICU nurse so trust me – 45 has recently experienced a venopuncture for either blood work or an IV infusion of some kind. Only other possible reason for the large hand bruise would be a traumatic injury to the hand. There is no other plausible explanation.

I do believe Trump is receiving Covid plasma Infusion treatments, that is why he is so brazen in flouting masks and social distancing. That said, would not said infusions be placed in the crook of the arm? The hand placement seems strange.

Definitely an IV stick. This is mine. I’m 64. However, no meat on my hands, unlike his chubby little paws. pic.twitter.com/xJpbatfU9r

If it’s a medically-caused Bruise – why isn’t it covered with a bandage?
Is it new? Old?
Has anyone seen it at Pressers?
Isn’t that the very same arm he could NOT Raise when he tried to drink the glass-of-water?

Look, we have absolutely no way of knowing what happened to Donald Trump’s hand. But there’s no denying that it’s really difficult not to wonder if there’s a whole hell of a lot that we’re not being told.
