Trump’s biggest critics on the right are questioning his health after he struggled to lift a glass of water during a speech at West Point.
A new video from the anti-Trump GOP group The Lincoln Project says,
“Something’s wrong with Donald Trump.
He’s shaky. Weak. Trouble speaking. Trouble walking. So why aren’t we talking about this?”
The spot, which Fox News is running in DC comes after Trump has a bizarre appearance over the weekend. When the event was over at West Point, Trump took a L O N G walk down a ramp as he left the stage.
The Lincoln Project ― co-founded by several high-profile conservatives, including attorney George Conway (husband of Kellyanne) says this and other behavior raises serious questions about Trump’s fitness for office.
A voiceover in the spot says,
“We’re not doctors, but we’re not blind. It’s time we talk about this: Trump is not well.”
The Trump campaign has attacked Democratic rival Joe Biden over his age, making implications about his mental fitness as well. In one online ad, the Trump campaign said
But now questions are being raised over Trump’s health and fitness, including a sudden trip to Walter Reed National Military Medical Center in November, referred to in The Lincoln Project’s ad.
His unusual behavior at West Point only adds to growing chorus. Trump has insisted he’s healthy and claimed in a tweet that
“in the final ten feet I ran down to level ground.”
You can see, he did not.
The incident at West Point caused #TrumpIsNotWell to trend on Twitter and the new ad is causing the hashtag to pop once again.
