There are books by respected psychiatrists who diagnose Trump, so I donít presume to add to these. These opinions are well known, and at a minimum reflect certain personality disorders.

But it isnít obvious to me that Trump has dementia. The man speaks so much, for hours at a time, that it isnít hard to find incongruities. He is a troll with some talent for seeing opportunities and weak spots others might not see or be too principled to take. I donít find Trump well informed, lacking in hypocrisy or singularly capable. His views and basic personality have been fairly consistent for decades. Passing a mini-mental exam is a very low bar, but I donít see Trump getting lost on a golf course or forgetting where he put the bucket of chicken.
