Republican Group Questions Trump’s Health: ‘It’s Time We Talk About This’

Some of President Donald Trump's most persistent critics from the right question his health after his unusual behavior this weekend.
"Something is wrong with Donald Trump," says the video of the anti-Trump GOP group The Lincoln Project. "He's shaky. Weak. Problems speaking. Problems walking. Why don't we talk about it?"

The spot, which Fox News reports is on television in Washington, DC, comes after Trump appears to have had a difficult time raising a glass of water during a speech at West Point on Saturday.
Then, when the event was over, he took an unusually long and deliberate walk on a ramp when he left the stage.
The Lincoln Project, co-founded by several high-profile conservatives, including lawyer George Conway, husband of President Kellyanne Conway's adviser, says this and other behaviors raise serious questions about Trump's suitability for the office.
"We are not doctors, but we are not blind," says a local voice-over. "It is time for us to talk about it: Trump is not doing well."
The video is reminiscent of one of the ads the Trump campaign launched against Hillary Clinton in 2016, which the former Secretary of Health interviewed and claimed "she doesn't have the strength, strength, or stamina."
This year, the Trump campaign attacked democratic rival Joe Biden across his age and also affected his mental fitness. In an online ad, the Trump campaign says: "Geriatric mental health is not a laughing matter."
Trump himself claimed that Biden was "mentally not sharp enough" for the job.
However, questions are now being raised about Trump's health and fitness, including a sudden trip to the Walter Reed National Military Medical Center in November, which is referred to in the Lincoln Project ad.
His unusual behavior at West Point only adds to the questions.
Trump insisted that he was healthy and said the slow and deliberate path was due to the fact that the ramp at West Point "was very long and steep, had no handrail and, above all, was very slippery", although it was a clear day was.
He also incorrectly claimed that I "walked on flat ground for the past ten feet".
The West Point incident made #TrumpIsNotWell trendy on Twitter this weekend, and the new ad made the hashtag reappear on Tuesday:

If Trump is as sick as he seems now, imagine him in 5 years, when he's like Breaking Bad's Uncle Tio and rings a bell when he wants a diet soda or wants to destroy a country. #TrumpIsNotWell
