On Wednesday, Trump officially declared Jerusalem as Israel’s capital. He also announced plans to move the U.S. embassy there. However, many people noticed that at the end of his speech, he started to slur his words.

There were many theories as to why he was slurring his words, such as was he having a mini-stroke? Was it dentures? Was it medications? Drugs? Alcohol? Was he tired?

Now a Virginia dentist is speaking up and concluded that the slurring “sounded like a loose denture plate.”

The dentist continued, “Saliva can get trapped between an upper plate and the palate – or between the lower plate and the lower jaw – and that’s what makes the noise.”

He also added it’s “a bit like what you get when you try to talk after you lose a filling.”

The dentist noticed that Trump was breathing through his nose. He stated, “You don’t want a lot of air rushing through your mouth when you have a loose plate.”

The dentist wanted to remain anonymous but he is board certified, stating he’s “not about to wade into politics.”

However, Raj Shah, a White House spokesman, tried to dismiss the slurring by saying it was Trump having dry mouth. Shah stated, “His throat was dry. There’s nothing to it.”
