Why Is #TrumpStroke Trending on Twitter?

This morning, #TrumpStroke and Walter Reed are trending on Twitter, because New York Times reporter Michael Schmidt has a book coming out that reveals that Mike Pence was “put on standby to temporarily assume the powers of the presidency” during Trump’s unplanned visit to the hospital last year. That’s basically the only revelation about Trump’s visit to the hospital, besides the fact that no one knew he was coming, so it was clearly spur of the moment.

Twitter, of course, has taken this intel and combined it with various videos showing Trump’s difficulty walking down a ramp, some slurring in his speeches, the odd stumble, and what have you to conclude that Trump suffered a “cerebral” event. Some dude who writes mystery novels is also saying that he heard from unnamed sources that Trump suffered a series of mini-strokes.

Whose mind does this change? What good does this do? Is there a single solitary Trump supporter who sees this and goes, “Oh! Some rando said he suffered from mini-strokes! I’m gonna vote for Biden now!” I mean, Trump is clearly covering up something. Trump clearly doesn’t want the public to know why he went to the hospital. But no one’s mind is going to be changed, because no one is saying, “I’m not going to vote for the racist moron because he had a mini-stroke.” If you are going to vote for a racist moron, you’re going to vote for a racist moron, regardless of his health.

Speculation is helpful to no one here, because when it comes to Trump, you don’t need to speculate. Every reason in the world not to vote for Trump has been laid bare, is out in the open. Just watch an interview or, you know, look at the f**king state of America. Trump and his people keep doctoring videos to put words in the mouths of Biden supporters (or replace a sleeping Harry Belafonte with Biden’s face). We don’t actually need to do any of that, because Trump’s mental defects are very f**king apparent every time he opens his mouth, and to speculate only draws attention away from reality, and the reality is this: Trump is an idiot.

Reminder: Kate Beckinsale has nothing to do with this story, nor has she suffered from a Trump stroke. We replaced Trump photos with images of the lovely Kate Beckinsale for aesthetic and superstitious reasons.
