Donald Trump has sparked fresh dementia rumors after giving a garbled speech where he attempted to wish fans a ‘beautifewel’ Christmas.
A newly-unearthed clip of the President’s appearance at the Turning Point USA conservative summit in West Palm Beach, Florida, Saturday began with Trump nodding to an unseen figure off-stage.
Trump then said: ‘And let me begin by wishing you a beautifewel…’, before interrupting his sentence, and saying: ‘Look. you remember this. Do you remember, they were trying to take Christmas out of…’
Journalist Natalia Antonova shared the clip, and wrote: ‘For every one of us who’s had a relative with dementia, this is telling.’
A psychiatrist called Bandy X Lee then chimed in on the president’s mental state, saying: ‘Yes, different psychiatric disorders often cooccur, and psychiatric symptoms with neurological ones.
What happened here?

‘We may be seeing here delusions (others taking away Christmas), tangential thoughts (trying to wish a beautiful Christmas season, and then derailing), and a seizure in between.’
Both tweets were shared by vocal Trump critic George Conway, whose wife Kellyanne is one of the president’s top advisers.
Trump’s ‘beautifewel’ comment came at the same event where he hit out at ‘windmills’ for killing bald eagles and ‘spewing fumes’ into the air.
He said: ‘I never understood wind. ‘I know windmills very much. ‘I’ve studied it better than anybody else…I know windmills are expensive
‘They’re made in China and Germany, mostly. They’re manufactured, tremendous fumes, gases, are spewing into the atmosphere.’

Trump continued: ‘We have a world. the world is tiny compared to the universe, so tremendous amount of fumes and everything.
‘You talk about the carbon footprint. ‘Fumes are spewing into the air. spewing.
‘Whether its China or Germany fumes are going into the air. It’s our air, their air, everything.’
