As reported by The Express, the weight of numerous indictments piling up against former President Donald Trump is becoming evident in his demeanor, showing signs of weariness and strain, according to an analysis by an expert.
A video recently shared on the Truth Social platform displayed Trump’s appearance as notably disheveled, and his speech exhibited instances of stumbling. These observations caught the attention of body language expert Judi James.
James highlighted that Trump’s visible signs of fatigue and moments of “verbal slurring” suggest he is grappling with significant pressure due to the ongoing criminal proceedings looming over him.
The video, released on Thursday, featured Trump passionately opposing what he labeled as “rigged and corrupt” indictments while demanding the immediate withdrawal of all charges lodged against him by authorities.
Despite Trump’s effort to project strength and authority, James pointed out that his usually well-groomed hair appeared somewhat unkempt, and his instances of verbal hesitation raised eyebrows on social media.
She noted that releasing the video without a retake might indicate his resolve to present himself as unwavering, even in the face of mounting challenges.
James also observed that Trump’s minor corrections during his speech, followed by a lack of further correction, could signal internal conflict. She proposed that although he read from an autocue, his emotional displays seemed to diverge from the script, potentially creating a discord between his spoken words and body language.
Arguably the most revealing aspect when assessing Trump’s current state of mind and health is why he chose to publish this video without opting for a second take…
“HE HAS CHOSEN TO TRY TO LOOK LIKE A MAN OF POWER AND AUTHORITY HERE, YET HIS NORMALLY COIFFED HAIR LOOKS A BIT UNKEMPT AND HIS VERBAL FALTERS ARE JARRING ENOUGH TO HAVE PROMPTED SPECULATION ON SOCIAL MEDIA.” SHE ADDED: “HE MUST BE A MAN UNDER INTOLERABLE PRESSURE RIGHT NOW THOUGH AND PERHAPS THIS APPEARANCE AND VERBAL SLURRING ARE A SIGN OF TIREDNESS OR STRESS.
“ODDLY, ALTHOUGH HE CORRECTS HIMSELF, HE FAILS THE SECOND TIME BUT SEEMS TO RAISE HIS BROWS FOR EMPHASIS AS THOUGH HE FEELS HE HAS NAILED THE WORD. “THERE COULD BE AN INNER CLASH RIGHT NOW AS HE READS FROM WHAT APPEARS TO BE AN AUTOCUE BUT TO ALSO THROW IN HIS EMOTIONAL DISPLAYS AS THOUGH HE WAS OFF-SCRIPT, AND THIS COULD CAUSE CONFLICT BETWEEN HIS WORDS AND HIS BODY LANGUAGE.”
In her analysis, James concluded that Trump’s appearance and verbal delivery might mirror the considerable pressure he is currently enduring. The barrage of indictments and legal battles he faces seems to be impacting his demeanor and overall well-being.
The ongoing legal challenges, coupled with public scrutiny, appear to have constructed a complex emotional landscape for the former president as he navigates a tense period in his post-presidential life.
