In his occasional public appearances since leaving office, Donald Trump has revealed himself to be at least partly senile. Trump’s rally speeches are fully incoherent. Trump’s rare on-camera interviews reveal that he’s so far gone he could be outwitted by a talking giraffe, or worse, Piers Morgan.
One key question is whether Trump’s current condition is something new, or if he was this far gone back when he was in office, and the trappings of the office were merely giving him cover. Even though we give Trump’s Secretary of Defense Mark Esper zero credit for waiting more than a year for a book deal before finally informing the public about what he witnessed in the Trump regime, Esper is revealing one key thing.
It turns out Trump himself was the biggest White House leaker of all – and no, we’re not talking about a Pee Pee Tape. Trump was leaking crucial information on a regular basis during Esper’s tenure, which lasted from mid 2019 to late 2020. In other words, during the second half of his presidency, Trump was already a cognitive goner.
