maladie de pick
by virtdave • Sat 17 Jun 2017 09:51

I ran into a hunting buddy yesterday at the Felletin market--he mentioned that there's some chatter in France suggesting that Trump has the "maladie de Pick"...I'd not heard of it, so I googled a bit. It's a variant of Alzheimer's disease (and first described by a Czech psychiatrist named Pick). If you're interested, you can check it out, for instance on Wikipedia. It's quite an accurate description of Trump's behavior.

I had not heard of Pick's Disease (or frontotemporal dementia) before. It doesn't sound too pleasant. I can't really comment on whether President Trump has a neurological disorder but he does at least seem to find focusing on and expressing one single train of thought to be somewhat difficult. From the little I've seen of him he doesn't seem a skilled orator. He also doesn't come across as charismatic, trustworthy or a natural leader. I guess that those things now matter less than a well managed, interesting and constantly notable online presence.
