I got this one from a podcast I listened to at work. A guest on the show used to work on The Apprentice and other Trump media like the beauty pageants. The guest said that Trump wears Depends and has chronic fecal incontinence because of the drugs he’s addicted to, and the greasy junk food he eats.
I’m thinking it’s plausible. Or is this just leftist propaganda? I’m a leftist, but I won’t believe just anything the anti-Trump people say. This is not discussed on mainstream news, but is that because it’s not verifiable, or that it’s just so gross to talk about?
He does have a weirdly big butt in many photos, and I’ve often wondered what the hell he’s got under there. However:
Myriad sources report that he abstains entirely from drinking, presumably related to having seen what alcoholism did to his older brother. That alone suggests he’s an unlikely candidate for drug addiction. True, it’s far from conclusive, but I’m skeptical that he could have hidden a drug addiction all this time.
Assuming it’s true and he does need some sort of padding, I would imagine it could be done very subtly. During the 45 years or so that I menstruated, the options available improved dramatically, from ridiculous bulky wads with absurdly inconvenient pins and ties to simple, slim, convenient pads. I am sure that if Trump needs diapers, he has ones that are designed not to show.
More importantly: WHO CARES? Imagine for a moment that a politician you respect suffered from an embarrassing condition like fecal incontinence. Would you want to expose and humiliate them? Would you think them less qualified to strategize or make decisions?
I utterly loathe Trump and wouldn’t feel a moment’s pity if it were publicly verified that the rumor in the OP were true. But any immature glee I might feel is ultimately irrelevant. There are far more important things we ought to be worrying about than whether Trump needs diapers.
No, I totally think he’s a drug addict. All that sniffling, narcissism, and wild mood swings, and that alcoholism runs in his family. Trump would easily rationalize any drug use on his part as “it’s okay because it’s not alcohol.”
The guy being referenced is comedian Noel Casler, who was a staffer on the Apprentice. He references Individual 1 and Casler’s time on the show often in his comedy sketches, and he really goes in on Individual 1 on Twitter.
I ran across this just the other day:
Drug addiction doesn’t cause narcissism; that’s a personality disorder. Though I suppose addiction could amplify the associated behaviors.
Anyway, I’m not going to argue that Trump is NOT an addict; I don’t think we have much credible evidence one way or the other, except for the common sense observation that a true addiction would be pretty hard to hide. Especially if the drugs involved were illegal. Exactly what type of drug do you think he’s addicted to?
