‘Worse shape than I imagined’: Trump critics stunned by his ‘lethargic’ slurring North Carolina speech
Donald Trump gave a speech in North Carolina on Saturday that lasted for 85 minutes — and gave some critics reason to question his health.
The former president threw red meat to his base during the speech at the state GOP convention and repeated his "Big Lie" about election fraud. He also attempted to defend himself after having difficulty walking down a ramp, which had raised questions about Trump's health in 2020. Trump argued the ramp was a "boobytrap."
The question of Trump's heath was again raised for how he delivered his speech. Here's some of what people were saying:
If you close your eyes and listen to Trump tonight, his voice is gravelly. He sounds a lot older.— digby (@digby) 1622941602.0
Put politics aside and pray for the health of Donald Trump. He looked lethargic and sounded soft tonight.— Rep. Eric Swalwell (@Rep. Eric Swalwell) 1622939382.0
