The Lincoln Project has released its latest ad and it paints a portrait of Donald Trump as a physical train wreck that lacks the physical stamina to cope with the strains of the Presidency.
Titled “Trump is Not Well,” the narrator, with pictures including Mr. Trump looking fatigued, not composed, and in need of aid to walk down a ramp at the West Point Graduation, says:
“Something is wrong with Donald Trump. He’s shaky, weak, trouble speaking, trouble walking, so why aren’t we talking about this? Why isn’t the Press covering Mr. Trump’s secret midnight run to Walter Reed Medical Center……Trump doesn’t have the strength to lead nor the character to admit it. We’re not doctors but we’re not blind. it’s time we talk about this. Trump is not well.”
Political junkies will remember how Republicans asked questions about Hillary Clinton’s health during the 9/11 ceremonies during the 2016 campaign. Please see the video below.
Other political historians will remember people questioning Ronald Reagan’s mental agility after watching this scene from 1984 where First Lady Nancy Reagan whispered to her husband to say “doing all we can.”
Voters have a right to ask legitimate questions about a Presidential candidate’s physical and mental health and demeanor.
If it was okay to ask about Hillary Clinton’s health in 2016 or Ronald Reagan’s in 1984, then it is perfectly reasonable to question the 2020 Presidential candidates, including Donald Trump, about theirs, especially during the Coronavirus.
