On Saturday Trump appeared carrying a large stack of newspapers with a giant bruise visible on the back of his hand.
The bruise on his hand is in the same place where an IV is often inserted.
In November 2019, Trump had made a mysterious visit to Walter Reed National Military Medical Center and underwent a two-hour doctor’s examination. The White House had then claimed that it was a part of a routine annual physical.
One Twitter user said of this latest evidence,
“Look at the bruising on his hand. He was attached to an intravenous line. They did a poor job of it, or he was fighting them. #WalterReed.”
A nurse explained the bruise.
“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.”
And what’s with that stack of newspapers? He has plenty of help, if he needs it. Why would the president carry a stack of newspapers like that?
One Twitter user observed,
“Thats a damn good point. He never carries anything, ever. Maybe a hat at most. With a whole staff with him, why would he be carrying newspapers that we all know he doesn’t read?”
That stack of newpapers is causing speculation of all sorts too,
“Trump’s never read a paper in his life.
That’s what they do when someone is having tremors, keep pressure on the arm by having them hold something. What are they hiding from us about Trump’s health? Why was he at Walter Reed today?”
There is growing speculation on Twitter that these hospital visits have something to do with a brain-related issue.
“Word is he was at Walter Reed for Cerebral event – and don’t forget about the papers hidden inside the newspaper.”
The President’s health must not be a state secret and many on Twitter are now demanding transparency,
“America deserves to know what’s wrong with their president; do we need to invoke the 25th amendment? It appears Trump’s at Walter Reed today….”
