A video of Senator Elizabeth Warren was shared on Twitter by Democratic strategist Adam Parkhomenko with the caption:

"The current president could not do this."

What activity did Parkhomenko think President Donald Trump incapable of?


Running. Jogging. Walking briskly. Watch it here to decide how to describe Senator Warren's entrance.

Tea Party member and former New York Republican Representative Nan Hayworth was quick to jump to Trump's defense. But her comment left many wondering if the ophthalmologist and one term Congresswoman needed her eyes examined.

Hayworth—who was defeated twice by Democrat Sean Patrick Maloney for New York's 19th congressional district—posted:

"...bet he could, as he certainly appears to have the vigor and stamina of ten people."

Hayworth's claim about the President's vitality overshadowed the rest of her comment and opened a big can of worms. And people went all in.

People were reminded of the time the President took a golf cart instead of walking with other world leaders, skipped a walk in Paris to commemorate the 100th anniversary of WWI, took a motorcade across the street, the repeated controversies over his annual physical and allegations of Adderall abuse by a staff member from The Apprentice.

People questioned Hayworth's medical expertise based on her assessment.

While some people just could not believe Hayworth was serious.

While one respondent provided a few greatest hits from Hayworth's brief political career.

As of yet, the President has not responded to Parkhomenko's post or Hayworth's accolades.

After weeks of enduring the impeachment trial against him in the Senate, President Donald Trump was likely grateful to be in a venue filled with people willing to praise him.

The President spoke at a rally in Wildwood, New Jersey, but at multiple points during the speech, his words got ahead of his thoughts.

At one point, Fox News—which was covering the event—decided to cut away, amid stifled laughter from the hosts.

The United States, unlike North Korea and other nations President Donald Trump admires, does not have an official state media channel where the federal government can push propaganda.
