"Morning Joe": Why was Trump slurring his words yesterday?

After playing a clip of the speech followed by a 1980s video of Trump speaking rather eloquently on world affairs, MSNBC analyst Steve Schmidt kicked things off by remarking this isn’t the first time the now-president is “clearly slurring his words.”

“I don’t know what the cause of it is,” Schmidt added, before noting that when the display is paired with alarming comments from Republican lawmakers questioning Trump’s fitness, as well as the rebuke of Trump from allies, “the question of his fitness, of his stability is in the air.”

“And it doesn’t get better when you see clear impairments,” he continued.
