Trump, Explained

“Zolpidem, sold under the brand name Ambien, among others, is a sedative primarily used for the treatment of trouble sleeping. It is typically only recommended if sleep hygiene is not effective. It decreases the time to sleep onset by about 15 minutes and at larger doses helps people stay asleep longer. It is taken by mouth and is available in a long acting formulation.
 
Common side effects include sleepiness, headache, nausea, and diarrhea. Other side effects include memory problems, hallucinations, and abuse.”

I may not be a physician nor a pharmacologist but I’m pretty good at connecting the dots. Here are two dots that only became connected when Roseanne apologized for going nuts on Twitter:

  • Trump appears intelligent to folks who know him but quite insane on Twitter. Is is schizophrenia?
  • Trump apparently has sleeping problems and likes doctors known as the “Candy Man”…

Now, Roseanne admitted to similar insanity and claimed it was the effect of Ambien, a common sedative… Well, if Trump takes a dose to go to sleep and has been for many years, he might just be into the hallucinatory side-effects regime… So, now we have a conspiracy theory of our own explaining the irrational Tweets. It does not explain the doubling down on the nightmares of the previous night but that might be just laid at the feet of habitually refusing to apologize or to explain. Perfect, eh?
