Donald Trump’s mentally vacant moments have become so common that they’re now expected. He wanders away in the middle of a press conference, or wanders off from his own limo, with an empty look on his face suggesting that his brain no longer functions on even a basic level. So it’s difficult to say whether he fell into another stupor today, or simply fell asleep, during a G20 meeting. But in any case, the British Prime Minister had to rouse him from it.
Watch this video of all of the of the G20 leaders turning around to face what’s behind them, while Donald Trump sits there motionless like a bump on a log until Theresa May reaches over and rouses him:
German Chancellor Angela Merkel can be seen laughing at that moment, though it’s not clear if she’s laughing at Trump’s stupor or at something unrelated. In any case, it’s yet more evidence that Donald Trump is not physically and mentally fit for the job. Either he’s falling asleep in the most important meetings of his political life, or he’s falling into some kind of semi-conscious state where he has no idea what’s going on.
Either way, it’s well past time for the 25th Amendment. Tick tick tick…
