It would be unacceptably cruel to give the millions of stupid white people who voted for Trump what they really voted for: to take away their ACA coverage, which to their surprise turned out to be the hated Obamacare they wanted to be free from. In fact, I’d like to see them (and the rest of us) have real National Health. But as the ravages of age* force him to fail more and more at Simulating Grown-Up Behavior, from demanding a second scoop of ice cream to telling his Russian buddies some of the peachy-keen Top Secret Stuff he’s learned, I hope that he can find his way to the nice safe room with the nice soft walls before he does any real damage but not before he gives his followers a look at their hero drooling all over himself. It would be especially tasty if the continued loosening of his verbal sphincter lets him say in nationally televised Outside Voice what he really thinks of the “white trash” in the “flyovers” who voted for him. Of course, some of them will believe that he was what they thought he was until Killary snuck up on him and vaccinated him.
*People don’t get paresis anymore, do they?

Our own 'dear leaders' may be terminally nuts, but then they're Tories and that's what Tories do. This guy of yours is on a different planet!

I remember seeing an article in a medical journal some while ago that because docs are no longer used to seeing cases of GPI (neurosyphilis), some cases diagnosed as dementia may be that (I think they cited actual instances) and thus treatable. As syphilis was known as 'the great mimic' and at all stages was very rare since the 1950s until the last decade or so, when numbers of cases have been increasing again, it could be misdiagnosed in the earlier phases, if the relevant tests weren't done.
