The frequent blunders of Donald Trump have finally caught the public’s attention, leading to increasing concerns about his suitability for office. A recent Fox News poll revealed that over half of Americans question the “mental soundness” of the 77-year-old former president. Interestingly, a similar concern exists for 80-year-old President Joe Biden, but the GOP presidential front-runner seems to escape the same level of scrutiny.

Take, for instance, the awkward pause at a September 8 rally in South Dakota. Trump abruptly stopped mid-speech for 40 seconds as he awkwardly looked at the audience, his eyes darting around. Supporters argued it was an emotional moment, but let’s be real—have we ever seen Trump overwhelmed with emotion? If Biden had pulled a similar stunt, the media, not just the conservative outlets, would have a field day questioning his mental fitness, while Trump, for the most part, gets a pass.

Then there’s the Pray Vote Stand Summit speech, described by some as a “word salad.” Trump’s confusing references, linking Barack Obama to current events and forgetting when World War II ended, should be alarming. If Biden had made such egregious errors, you can bet the media would be tearing into him, with pundits and doctors alike dissecting every misstep.

And let’s not ignore Trump’s ongoing fantasy that he won the 2020 election. Despite overwhelming evidence to the contrary, he clings to this narrative. Whether he’s deliberately lying or genuinely deluded, it doesn’t matter. The fact that he can’t accept reality raises serious questions about his ability to lead.

His reliance on current polls while dismissing their accuracy in the last election adds another layer of inconsistency. It’s not just about mistakes; it’s about a pattern of deception or a worrying detachment from reality. Either way, for the sake of the nation, Trump cannot be trusted to lead. It’s time to acknowledge the obvious: Trump’s fitness for office is questionable at best, and the potential risks to the nation are too great to ignore.
