Trump Doesn’t Seem to be Using His Left Arm and People on Twitter Are Concerned

Something weird is going on with Donald Trump.

Eagle-eyed watchers on Twitter have noticed that Trump hasn’t been using his left arm…it basically just hangs there.

People have been noticing this since Trump’s unannounced visit to Walter Reed Medical Center for a “routine physical.”

Trump’s physician attempted to squash rumors about the president’s health after the unscheduled weekend checkup.

White House Press Secretary Stephanie Grisham released a memo stating the checkup was “routine” and that the president remains in good health.

The White House said the president is healthy and that the visit was part of next year’s annual physical. The White House said the unscheduled examination was pushed ahead due to a busy 2020 schedule.

The appointment led many to speculate on social media whether the president was receiving urgent medical attention.

“Despite some of the speculation, the president has not had any chest pain, nor was he evaluated or treated for any urgent or acute issues,” Conley said in the memo. “Specifically, he did not undergo any specialized cardiac or neurological evaluations.”

The president’s annual physicals typically take place at the beginning of the calendar year and are announced ahead of time on his public schedule. Trump’s previous two physicals happened in January 2018 and February 2019, respectively.

Now of course we have no proof that something is going on with Trump’s health. We are just looking at some abnormalities. We are not doctors or medical professionals and even if we were, you can’t diagnose someone without examining them.

But take a look at these videos:

Notice how Trump’s arm is just…laying limp? Trump usually is very animated with both hands.

This was from Trump’s surprise trip to Afghanistan over Thanksgiving. You normally wouldn’t notice this unless you specifically look for it:

A few seconds into the above video, you will see Trump clapping, but it appears he is using his right arm to clap his left hand. Watch closely.
