Hangdog look? Ashamed and cringing?

I am a follower, frequenter, fan of Quora, although I only rarely resubmit, reblog, retweet, reuse one of their submissions. But there are exceptions. Here’s one:

J.S. Melton

Deutsch, talking about Trump’s mental state, said: “I have known him for twenty years and I’ve spent hours and hours with him, everything from negotiating leases to at-school functions to hours and hours of interviewing him on my old show. He’s not the same guy. You can see it in his eyes and in his speech pattern and, most frighteningly, his behavior.”

Tr before and after

Consider the attached “before” and “later” photos. Then do a little research on “frontotemporal dementia.” The look in one’s eyes is one of the indicators of the condition. Two other indicators are (1) non-fluent, non-grammatical speech patterns and (2) anti-social behavior caused by nerve cell loss in areas that control conduct, judgment, empathy, and foresight — among other abilities). This guy could get our country into a LOT of trouble.

J.S. Melton: We all look that way when we awaken. (At least, I do.) Unfortunately, Trump carries that look with him all day long.
