    Except one is exceedingly plausible, and the other was insane racism you mean?

    Presidential medical status isn't some holy untouchable bit of honesty by the US gov to begin with.

    Trump should start taking steroids like his buddy Vince McMahon does.

    Feign surprise as the MSM blames BOTH SIDES for the shutdown despite all branches of goverment being in Republican control.

    Obviously all of that.

    Just saying it feeds into right-wing bad-faith "whataboutism" and, even though the Girthers are likely right, I don't see it doing anything but feeding the usual right-wing drivel.

    At this point, I don't know how to convince even the mildly-Trump-supporting folk I know that his faculties have massively diminished in the past decade (and seems to be accelerating). Best I can do is feed them full transcripts and unedited video unsullied by "the media," but still doesn't connect.

    There's at least more out there about his potential dementia in the public sphere now, but seems like the few things that have impacted his general standing in marked ways are either policy [ACA repeal-and-replace, DACA, taxes] or when he's been asked to respond to a crisis [Charlottesville].

    Sadly, bet the Stormy Daniels stuff over the weekend will do more than any of his numerous conflicts of interest or kleptomania have done.

    They will always have an intensely stupid bad faith whataboutism ready to go in any given situation. That's exactly what makes it stupid and bad faith.

    Remember how Scalia dying spawned a bunch of conspiracy theories on the right?

    Now imagine the reaction from the right to Trump dropping dead from the combination of age, poor health, and super high stress after being lied to about his condition.
    Complicating things since 2009.
