White House says Trump will undergo physical exam after slurred speech

This week, U.S. President Donald Trump delivered what is being referred to as a "historic" speech in which he announced his administration's plans to recognize Jerusalem as Israel's capital and move the embassy to the embattled city from Tel Aviv.

"The President's throat was dry, nothing more than that", she told reporters. "There's nothing to it", said White House principal deputy press secretary Raj Shah, according to The Los Angeles Times.

Shah, pressed on the health concerns, dismissed suggestions the slurring signaled a deeper problem. "You know what it seemed like the whole time?"

"I say forget the Mueller investigation, bring on the molar investigation".

Appearing to struggle to get through the final part of his speech on Jerusalem, Trump had trouble getting out a number of words and lisped his way through as he expressed hopes for peace and state: "God bless the United Shtesh".

In the last 30 seconds of the speech, however, his pronunciation of some words seemed to slur.

Trump similarly slurred some words in a November speech after he returned from China.

"As disturbing as it was today to watch Donald Trump add fuel to the Middle East conflict, it was even more disturbing to watch the conflict between Donald Trump's teeth and his tongue", "The Daily Show" host said.

Senator Franken Thursday just before noon said, "I, of all people, am aware that there is some irony in the fact that I am leaving while a man who has bragged on tape about his history of sexual assault sits in the Oval Office".

Noah speculated Trump was wearing dentures. "Yeah. This is what's going on", Noah said.

While insisting there is no shame in wearing dentures, Noah said there is shame in Trump having dentures, because "he's vain as hell". "Can you imagine how he would feel if people started tweeting Denture Donald?"
