Not in the way I O hear ople talk about it. I don't buy this S about him being mentally incompetent or early stages of dementia. He ses me as a person of above average intellce who's Trac conversations and knows what's going on.n't think he's medically unfit to be president. I think he's morally unfit to be president.
