if Hillary had wondered off looking for her car that was literally right in front of her?
OMG, would have been a top story within minutes with trumps chumps staring and flagging in glee. we saw it when she coughed once. lol
remember she had a secret medical care unit set up in "Chelsea's apartment". LOLOLOLOL
Trump uses a weapon against American press members.
That's about all we need to know of his mental state.

Good God, so Trump getting into a car is now a source of scrutiny?
haha. There was the clip of Hillary slipping as she was going to get into a car.

What's the reason for Trump's confusion? Well, he's a thin-skinned, bully who doesn't care about anything except himself, and has absolutely no way of relating to anyone other than fellow billionaires. He's unqualified, uneducated, unpolished, uninformed, and uncaring. Oh, and he's not very smart, either.

Yes, it is pretty obvious he is more coherent in the younger clip. However, consider the circumstances surrounding the two speeches. In the younger speech, he was comfortable, in his element (aka in control of his surroundings), talking on a subject he was well-prepared for, to someone he considered an ally. In the older speeches, he is in a new position he is still learning, unable to prepare for 'gotcha' questions that are far too regularly thrown at him, facing someone he considers to be an enemy. That's two totally different circumstances.

I have no doubt his eloquence has waned with the years. I just don't see enough evidence to say he is having cognitive difficulty. If more evidence comes to life, I reserve the right to adjust my opinion.
Perhaps I wasn't clear... English is my second language as well... my primary language is Mathematics.
Use a smart phone for the controller and simply include a Bluetooth receiver in the apparatus. ...
He expected a much more intricate solution, and the best solution didn't match that expectation. I probably repeated "Bluetooth" 50 times before he realized the implications. The solution was so simple he had trouble accepting it.
Firstly, thank you for the compliments, Gem. I definitely return the respect.
Right now, I am completely focused on analyzing Trump's speech. The only other thing going on is the Game Show Network (mindless drivel) on TV. That is my focus. My wife is leaving me be for a little while, because she has learned that no matter how important something is, talking to me about it right now will get a blank stare and probably cause me to do or say something absolutely incomprehensible. It takes a moment to switch focus.
If I had a dime for every time I wrote an absolutely stoopid post for ATS that I wound up deleting because my mind was elsewhere, I could afford to hire Eric Trump to lick my shoes clean. Luckily for me, I am in full control of when I make myself visible to those outside a very small circle of friends/family who at least try to understand. Trump doesn't have that option. If I didn't, chances are I would be confined to a mental institution. Compared to me under certain circumstances, Trump is a golden-tongued genius.
Listen to some of the old ATS Live! Internet radio shows... I would start trying to explain a simple concept, and it would come out closer to "derp, derp, derp"...
I should also mention that I am dealing with a step-father with advanced dementia. Not just watching, but dealing with him closely; I am caretaker for my mother (who has her mind, but is extremely feeble). I have watched the disease progress, and was actually one of the first to raise a red flag about it. Donald Trump, in my experienced opinion, does not show evidence of dementia. Dementia is much, much, much more than confusion... it debilitates and destroys people to an extent I honestly don't think most people can imagine.
I actually consider the existence of dementia as absolute proof there really is a Devil.
