Did you notice the slurring and mispronunciation of words? If not, click that link above and fast forward to the very end where it’s especially evident. He completely mispronounced “The United States” and called it what sounds like, “The United Shakes!” You can try to figure that out for yourself…
What I’m getting at here is that this is further evidence that he is clearly not in his right mind, and I’m not alone in my assessment. Social media has exploded with reactions such as:
