Trump is eccentric and everyone knows that. His tweets and public statements are nothing but gibberish. When he spoke at Florida Governor Rick Scott’s Ball, it appeared as if he needed either medical or psychiatric help, as if he seemingly had a stroke.
It’s never a good sign when the leader of your country looks like he’s in immediate need of a doctor’s attention.
“The governors — we’re going to have a lot of meetings tomorrow. We’re going to have some very important meetings. We’ll be talking about Parkland and the horrible event that took place last week.
I want to thank Governor Rick Scott of Florida. Rick, please stand up. You’re doing a great job. Really great job.
And that will be one of the subjects. And I think we’ll make that first on our list, because we have to end our country of what’s happening with respect to that subject. So we’ll be talking about that and many other things.”

It is clear that Trump has either some medical or mental problem, and can’t make his statements in any semblance of order. While the president should have been speaking on gun violence and possible measures to control such incidents, he forgot about it and didn’t even mention the word “gun” nor anything about the shooting throughout the address. However, Trump mentioned Parkland without speaking about the incident.
As per the president’s leaked private schedule, he never works as late as he did while giving the speech. Perhaps this is the reason the ill president could not speak correctly — he was simply up past his bedtime.
Gun control has always been a political issue, but the Parkland massacre has politicized it further. People have had enough and are calling for strict gun regulations. Trump is not in favor of gun control but being a politician, he has to answer his countrymen and their concerns.
But however hard he tries, he cannot be diplomatic. It’s either a yes or a no. His attempt to find a middle way out by arming 20 percent of teachers was ridiculed and rejected by everyone and now he is in a do-or-die situation which we are sure he cannot handle wisely.
