Today is Donald Trump’s 74th birthday, and based on a commencement speech he gave at West Point yesterday, the years, the stress of the job, and the racism have clearly taken a toll. For instance, compare Trump in 2015 to low-energy Trump yesterday at West Point:

Meanwhile, here the President bizarrely needed the aid of one hand to help the other hand lift a glass of water to his mouth.

After he gave his speech, Trump also had difficulty walking down a short ramp.

But listen y’all — especially the Fake News — that was a really hard ramp to navigate. And we all saw him “run” down the final teen feet, didn’t we? Look at him run! MOMENTUM.
The ramp that I descended after my West Point Commencement speech was very long & steep, had no handrail and, most importantly, was very slippery. The last thing I was going to do is “fall” for the Fake News to have fun with. Final ten feet I ran down to level ground. Momentum!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) June 14, 2020
As you can imagine, Twitter is having a blast this morning with several trending topics, including #rampgate:
Happy Birthday Mr. President @realDonaldTrump,— Bleeding Heart Liberal Marine (@zaharako) June 14, 2020
I know people are teasing you, saying #TrumpWearsAdultDiapers but you’re all grown up now & should be proud of wearing your Big Boy Bunker Britches full to the brim with shits & pisses. Pretty soon you won’t have to flush 15 times! pic.twitter.com/kMb7HuZQGG
Why can’t President Trump lift his right arm to his mouth & lean it back to drink or walk down a flight of stairs?— David Yankovich (@DavidYankovich) June 13, 2020
Why does he slur his speech & meander?
These are legitimate questions about the mental/physical health of a President who appears in major decline.
Meanwhile, Twitter is also trolling the President on his birthday, because “Best President Ever” is also trending, and all of the examples are of Obama:
Happy Obama Day!
