White House says Trump will undergo physical exam after slurred speech

White House says Trump will undergo physical exam after slurred speech

Facing global isolation for recognising Jerusalem as the Israeli capital, the White House yesterday defended President Donald Trump's decision, asserting that it was a reflection of the ground realities and the U.S. was committed to the Middle East peace process.

Rachel Maddow notes Donald Trump's unusually slurred speech during his Jerusalem announcement yesterday and reports on the White House announcing that Trump will have a medical exam in January with the results to be made public. "God bless the Palestinians, and God bless the United States", but the mangling of the last phrase of the sentence was clearly noticed by viewers, who started theorizing if the president may have been wearing dentures or some other form of dental prosthetics.

Naturally, it became fodder for TV hosts. "It seemed like someone hit him with a blow dart just before he went out to make the speech".

He also slammed Trump's decision to move the US embassy in Israel from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem, which has set off clashes in the West Bank along with protests across the Middle East.

"Think about it. Fake teeth, fake hair, fake tan. At this point, I wouldn't be shocked to find out he is the dude from 'Men in Black, '" Noah joked.

"The Late Late Show with James Corden" got in on the fun too. It was the second time in a month that Trump appeared to get a dry mouth in public, after he reached for a water bottle in the middle of remarks in November. "I knew he had a screw loose, we didn't know he had a tooth loose".

"The President's throat was dry, nothing more than that", she told reporters.
