These are the symptoms of Tardive Dyskinesia. (From prolonged use of anti-psychotic meds)

Uncontrolled tongue movements
Blinking eyes fast
Chewing
Smacking or puckering lips
Puffing out cheeks
Frowning

Did anyone notice anyone in particular at the SOTU acting like this? 
It's a source of great pride for me, that when my name is googled, one finds book titles and not mug shots. Daniel C. Chamberlain

    I think the actual number is even greater.

    I listened to the speech on the radio. And I can't watch videos.

    I think the absence of visual has its benifits.

    Nancy Pelosi has all kinds of weird arm movements and facial twitches. My doctor thinks she has Parkinsons. I don't know much about it, but she does look strange when she's talking to someone.

    Well, she also drinks like camel that just crossed the Sahara Desert. She loves her some expensive whiskey! Probably not many brain cells left.

    To which I'd add the Alzheimer's/dementia drugs. My Mother had Alzheimer's and I can see the same facial expressions, the fighting to find the words, and the questioning look in her face. Along with that mouth thing that goes along with Tardive Dyskinesia. The cheese is about to slip completely off her cracker.
