White House downplays Trump's slurred speech

And in fact, it doesn't matter that Trump has already made health an issue.

On Wednesday, President Trump officially recognized Jerusalem as the capital of Israel, but his speech didn't seem to flow easily - and people noticed.

Some have wondered if Trump has dentures, others have noted that a sudden onset of slurred speech can be indicative of a stroke, or even a side effect of medication.

But this is Donald Trump.


"Don't do it, guys", Noah said, then slurred: "He's very shenshitive".

"I know what you're getting at", Shah replied. "It's like someone hit him with a blow dart just before he went out to make the speech".

He then urged them not to do it because Trump is "so sensitive".

"It was worse! It was so much worse", Noah said, laughing. But the pronunciation of those words appeared to slur. "What's going on there, man?" There's nothing to be ashamed of about having dentures at Trump's age, for example, and if that were the case, it would likely reassure people who had concerns that it might be something more serious.

"This used to happen to my grandfather all the time", Noah said. "His dentures started falling out and he wouldn't be able to finish a sentence". Think about it. Have you ever seen Trump eat an apple or a pear or vegetables of any kind?

"Looking forward to Trump's dentist's letter saying he has the most handsome terrific real teeth ever elected to the presidency", another user added. "There's no part of his body that's real".

The flub fueled buzz on social media that the President was having some health problems or denture slippage.
