Donald Trump May Be Suffering From Untreated Syphilis, Says Expert

Doctors have been trying to figure out the erratic behavior of Donald Trump in recent days, specially after his unhinged 17-minute press conference on Thursday.

In an essay on The New Republic, infectious disease specialist Steven Beutler wrote that Donald Trump may be suffering from dementia brought on by undiagnosed syphilis.

He wrote:

“Physicians like me have also taken notice of Trump’s bizarre, volatile behavior. Given our experience, we can’t help but wonder if there’s a medical diagnosis to be made. After all, many medical conditions exhibit their first symptoms in the form of psychiatric issues and personality changes. One condition in particular is notable for doing so: Neurosyphilis.”

“Primary syphilis is the most widely recognized form of the disease. It is characterized by the development of an ulcer, usually genital, a few weeks to a few months after sexual contact with an infected person. If the ulcer is not noticed, or not treated, it heals on its own, and the disease enters a dormant phase. But during this time, the bacteria—a spirochete called Treponema pallidum—spreads throughout the body without causing any symptoms.”

We already reported earlier that Donald Trump’s personal doctor confirmed that he has been taking hair growth medication known to cause genital shrinkage. It all makes so much sense now.
