A photo that went viral over the weekend on social media shows Donald Trump with what appears to be a large bruise on his hand has sparked rumors about his health.
The image which has been shared and reshared on social media shows Trump with a large discoloration on the top of his right hand. It is unclear what caused the bruise, but several social media users suggested it looked like the type of bruise left by an IV.
The discoloration was not there earlier in the week during his public appearances leading many to the conclusion this is something that happened recently.
The image had many people bringing up the video of Trump struggling to lift a glass of water for a drink during a speech at West Point back in June.
Dr. Bandi X. Lee, a Yale University psychiatrist stated that the video of Trump struggling with the glass showed that he was suffering from significant neurological issues.
“This is a persistent neurological sign that, combined with others, would be concerning enough to require a brain scan,” Lee wrote on Twitter back in June.
The bruise on Trump’s hand gave new life to speculations. While a bruise on the hand isn’t a serious issue it does have many questioning if Trump is intentionally concealing health issues from the public.
On Saturday evening the words Walter Reed topped Twitter’s trending lists as unsubstantiated rumors spread that Trump had secretly visited the hospital earlier that day. Trump claimed that he spent the day golfing.
Trump has yet to comment on the bruise or the rumors that he visited Walter Reed Medical Center.
