According to The Daily Mail, Donald Trump’s odd slurring during his speech Wednesday declaring the U.S. will recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel was due to…lose dentures.
From The Daily Mail:
But a Virginia dentist consulted by DailyMail.com watched a video of the speech Wednesday afternoon and concluded that the speech quirk ‘sounds like a loose denture plate.’
‘Saliva can get trapped between an upper plate and the palate – or between the lower plate and the lower jaw – and that’s what makes the noise,’ he said.
The unnamed dentist also speculated that it’s also “a bit like what you get when you try to talk after you lose a filling.”
But he ultimately said the denture hypothesis is more likely.
Twitter also opined on their opinion:
Why is Donald Trump's alarming slurring, shortness of breath and clear struggling to hold it together during the Jerusalem speech not trending? He looked like he was having a stroke (and that's not just wishful thinking!).

Trump is speaking about #Jerusalem right now.
He is sniffling like Scarface up there.
No doubt he is drugged out beyond belief right now.
Slurring words too.
I guess that's one way to handle the opioid crisis.

Didn't anyone watch Trump's speech? He was out of breath from talking, slurring his words, and talking like his dentures were loose. #TrumpResign

@CNN Better check into Trump's health! His speaking ability was not normal. He was slurring his words. Ended with God bless the United SHTATES…Thought he was going to stroke out on live TV. Right eye barely open…What's up with THIS???

Donald Trump’s day so far:
– His teeth fell out during a speech?
– He started lisping and slurring
– “God blesh the United Shesh”
– This really happened, there’s video
– Sniffed the whole time too
– Trump is a walking corpse
– Whistle blower taking him down
– It’s still only 3pm

Video of Trump’s slurred speech today. Comparing the first 30 seconds of his Jerusalem statement with the final 30 seconds that is increasingly slurred, and ends with him mispronouncing “United States.” Something happened. pic.twitter.com/rZpXRzaST3
