Donald Trump’s dentures came loose in the middle of his big speech

To be clear, I absolutely and completely loathe Donald Trump. I’m sure that’s breaking news! I’m sure it comes as a shock. I will make fun of his baby fists. I will make fun of his tantrums. I will make fun of his giant dinosaur ass. I will make fun of his stupidity. I will make fun of his cruelty, just because it’s my way of dealing with it instead of curling up in a ball and crying. I f–king hate this man with every fiber of my being. But should we make fun of him because his dentures came loose in the middle of a terrible speech? I have mixed feelings. Yesterday, Trump announced that America would be moving our American embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem, because something something Evangelicals. Politically speaking, Trump is setting off about a million powder kegs in the Middle East. But all anybody could talk about was how Bigly’s sad dentures came loose and he was slurring like a motherf–ker in his speech:

It seems like the uppers came loose at some point in his speech. Instead of just taking a moment to fix that sh-t, he kept going until the end:

It’s clear that he has dentures. If you’ve ever been around someone with dentures, they do come loose sometimes. It happens. But is it fair game for mockery? I was going to ignore it, but #DentureDonald is trending and The Daily Show made a good point:

So… yeah. He’s vain and stupid and petty. If someone else’s dentures slipped in the middle of a speech, Denture Don would have been gleefully tweeting about it for months. So have it.

  1. Veronica says:

    I’m honestly more amazed that he has dentures. You’d think somebody with that kind of money could have avoided that fate.

    • OriginalLala says:

      it’s probably partially because of this eating habits. I’ve read some disturbing accounts of him inhaling multiple tubs of cool whip in one sitting, and you know he’s not brushing his teeth and flossing before bed ;)

    • CL says:

      Yeah, but he would still have to make the twice daily effort to care for his teeth, so……

    • Chaine says:

      People his age used to get them for cosmetic purposes, so I’m assuming his were from vanity. I don’t think they had braces or modern oral hygiene 60 years ago, so everyone’s teeth were crooked and full of blackening fillings. I know women that are now in their 70′s who had ALL of their teeth pulled ON PURPOSE in their 20′s or 30′s just so that they could get dentures that would look nice and white and straight.

      • Yup, Me says:

        I’ve got a friend who told me that someone in her family (a grandmother or someone) told her that she had her teeth pulled and got dentures so she could eat more candy. LMAO!

      • Kaye says:

        I’m 71 and NO ONE my age that I know was encouraged to get dentures. I was always taught to take care of my teeth and how to do it.

      • marjiscott says:

        Chaine…. yes, braces and preventative dental care WERE around back in the Fifties and Sixties. I had braces on back then when I was twelve. Of course, you had to care about your teeth. Also, I am very surprised by this revelation. Dentists pulled teeth out in the Twenties and Thirties, fitted people with dentures, but not sixty years ago. More like 70-80+ years ago. My Grandmother did that and always regretted it.

      • Chaine says:

        OK i stand corrected! maybe it’s a social class thing, then, and trump would have had better dental care. Yes, someone very close to me had all her teeth pulled out in the mid-60′s and she did it because someone else she knew had done it, and so did her sister.

      • Deadnotsleeping says:

        I have family members who are in their 70s who had all their teeth pulled and got dentures in their 20s. These are people with good hygiene, but dentistry has changed a lot. Especially in rural areas.

      • amilu says:

        My 79-year-old grandmother had all of her teeth pulled when she was a teenager, and she’s been wearing dentures since then. She grew up in rural Kentucky.

      • Hazel says:

        Yes, braces existed 60 years ago.

      • Jerusha says:

        I’m 73 and I agree with Kaye. No one was ENCOURAGED to get dentures when we were kids, teens, or young women. In fact, I was astonished when my grandmother, born in 1888, told me she had dentures because Granddaddy told her to get her teeth pulled and get false ones. This would have been in the 1920s.
        And, yes, braces existed in the olden days of the Fifties, but they were for more serious problems with teeth. I always liked that Lauren Hutton didn’t fix her gap and Ali McGraw didn’t correct her overlap. Uniqueness is nice.

      • magnoliarose says:

        My parents and grandparents have their own teeth, but some of my older southern relatives have dentures. My Mmere was too poor and having babies back to back so she couldn’t afford dental care. My parents got her some nice quality ones, and she smiles a lot because she used to be embarrassed by her cheap dentures. Pepere used to take them out, and it scared me to death, but he wouldn’t get new ones to prove a point.
        Some people just couldn’t afford dental hygiene, and in that case, instead of walking around with headaches and pain it probably seemed like a smart preemptive thing to do.
        My in-laws don’t have dentures so I think it might be bad habits that caused it.

      • Prim & Proper says:

        Someone told me that in the 1920s+ a great number of women had their
        teeth removed and given dentures AS A WEDDING PRESENT to save them from
        any costs they would not have been able to afford (and the pain and suffering of bad teeth).

      • ElleC says:

        I’m with ya @Chaine – All these people claiming that no one encouraged young people with healthy teeth to get dentures maybe weren’t around in the 60s and 70s in small town Alberta. My dad’s highschool best friend even SAVED UP for it, even though he had nice teeth, because it was the thing to do! I think trends like this were just more local back in the day.

      • Nic919 says:

        My dad is 70 and he has all his teeth except for a molar he got replaced with an implant. His own dad had to wear dentures because of poor dental care and while I don’t remember it apparently my grandfather didn’t always want to wear his teeth. My dad in no way wanted that to happen and both my parents were hard core when it came to our dental care.

        Dump has tons of money so I don’t know why he wouldn’t have implants instead of dentures because they don’t do that.

        In this world of alternative facts, I am going to believe that he has had a mini stroke.

      • The Other Katherine says:

        There is absolutely a class element to whether people of Trump’s age got full dentures at a young age, and NO ONE with Trump’s money has full dentures at age 70 unless they’ve had catastrophic damage to their teeth from something like intensive cancer treatment. My parents are a bit older than Trump, and they and most of their peers have nearly all their original teeth, and they have only the tiniest fraction of Trump’s resources. You have to go back to my grandparents’ generation (who would be over 100 years old now) to find people for whom full dentures or even partial plates were the norm at age 70 in the urban upper-middle class. At worst, Trump has a combination of implants and original teeth with veneers.

        I think he just got into Melania’s Xanax stash and had wicked dry mouth.

      • jwoolman says:

        No, braces existed 60 years ago… His generation had plenty of modern dental attention. If he has dentures, I’m surprised because he has plenty of money to get caps and implants. I think dentures must be less common now.

        Are people sure it was a denture slip? Maybe it was due to medication. He was slurring a little throughout.

      • Deeanna says:

        I am older than trump. I can assure you we had dentists, dental care, and braces when I was just a young child. And my family was far from wealthy.

        What I cannot imagine is that someone with trump’s wealth has not had implants. They’ve been available for years and years now.

      • Mel says:

        A person doesn’t have to have poor oral hygiene to have his or her teeth removed; gum disease, for example, is genetic in many cases (often associated with osteoporosis), and no amount of money will prevent it.

    • Neelyo says:

      He’s probably been drinking nothing but Pepsi since he was 12. I’m sure his teeth rotted away years ago from all of that sugar water.

    • BlueMoodyHues says:

      I have read that he used to get new veneers put on multiple times a year. If this is true, he would not have teeth left and would be forced to get dentures.

      You’d think he’d get implants, but it’s also likely that with his age and lifestyle, he doesn’t have the bone density to hold them.

      • Anastasia says:

        I wondered about that, too. I have one gap in the back of my mouth where an implant “Lego piece” has been put in thanks to a bone graft, but the implant (tooth) itself would be about $7-9K. So it sits, an empty gap. LOL

        If I had his money, I’d have the best looking teeth. And not those unnaturally bright white, Chiclet huge horse teeth, either.

    • Leigh says:

      RIght? I was wondering why he doesn’t have implants, he can certainly afford them.

    • Chrissy says:

      Me too. At the very least, I thought he’d have implants. Many members of his family have used implants with varying degrees of success./ snark

    • anon14 says:

      I also wondered about implants. Maybe he is having them, and the denture or whatever is just temporary until the grafts or implantation site has healed? The process is a very lengthy one, almost a year.

      • Julie Smith says:

        You’re exactly right. I’m currently in mid-process… it requires at least two oral surgeries, usually a bone graft, a half-dozen stitches and $$$$ (plus a cute little fake tooth “flipper.”) Implants are uncomfortable and time-consuming, but the results are stellar. He certainly has the cash, but I wonder if he has the patience.

  2. Rachel says:

    He would not hesitate to ridicule someone else for this, so that makes him fair game, as far as I’m concerned.

  3. LA Native says:

    What, the guy cant afford implants (dentures with 4 screws)? I have a hard time believing he has dentures and not implants.

  4. If he can mock someone with cerebral palsy, then turnabout is fair play.

  5. Odetta says:

    I have no problem criticizing trumps looks, or the way he talks, I’d make fun of him for anything because it’s what he would do. It’s his go to…screw him and I hope he chokes on his dentures

  6. Wren says:

    Yup! Fair game and I’m laughing my ass off at him. Everything about him sucks and I will take each and every opportunity to have a moment of fun at his expense. After all, it’s nothing he wouldn’t do himself.

  7. OriginalLala says:

    eh, I would normally not make fun of someone’s appearance but he makes fun of people with disabilities, and women’s appearance all the time. Screw him. He looked and sounded like a complete tool and I’m not ashamed to say I laughed, I laughed alot.

  8. littlemissnaughty says:

    I don’t have mixed feelings. Why do you have mixed feelings? Nobody’s making fun of the nice granny who’s speaking at a fundraiser for children. This man will mock anyone’s looks while running around like a cheddar after its expiration date. I have NO qualms about this. This is funny as hell.

  9. Nanny to the Rescue says:

    I’m on the other side here. I don’t think it’s cool to ridicule him for this, even though he’s an idiot who’d do it in no second to others. Stooping to his level isn’t exactly my goal in life.

  10. M&M says:

    So he’s bald, has no teeth and he’s a moron and mean.
    Can someone please point out one redeeming quality in this man?

  11. Littlestar says:

    I’m genuinely surprised he has dentures. I’d think with that kind of money you’d opt for dental implants.

  12. Neelyo says:

    I fucking loved it. This is the kind of thing that keeps him up at night, well that and his diet.

    He doesn’t give a shit about all of the people who hate him for ruining their lives, but he’ll care if people are mocking his dentures. Virile, strong men don’t wear false teeth.

  13. Yup, Me says:

    I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again. I cannot think of a more fitting punishment for someone as vain and narcissistic and self aggrandizing as this human bag of baby shit than to be reviled on a global stage and for all of his flaws to be spotlighted in such magnificent fashion. It doesn’t stop him or make him strive to be a better person but it does hit that ridiculous ego. He’s clearly an idiot and a buffoon and a dirtbag and thinks he’s tricking people into believing otherwise. It’s interesting to observe. It would be funnier if he wasn’t the friggin President.

  14. boredblond says:

    These people are assumjng it’s dentures..I’m assuming, based on logical observations over the last two years, that it’s something else.

  15. Erbs says:

    He’s a feeble old man. Meanwhile, Hillary has all of her teeth. Lol. And BTW, as wealthy as his family was and is, he would have access to excellent dental care. So, what’d he do to wreck his teeth? My Mom’s 87, she has all of her teeth. Dentures. What a trip.

  16. robyn says:

    I think pulling out teeth rather than trying to preserve them was common in his age group. I didn’t expect he had dentures but you’d think with that kind of money they would be properly fitted. Otherwise, he had brain freeze from early dementia.

    The reason people feel free to make fun of Trump is Trump has shown he is willing to belittle absolutely anyone at any time, except Putin and his base.

    But here we are talking about his teeth rather than about a devastating chain of events that might very well occur post his ill-stated declaration.

  17. Meredith says:

    At the risk of ruining one of the best movies ever, this made me think of the Impressive Clergyman in Princess Bride.

  18. queenE says:

    and all the sniffing besides…

  19. Nello says:

    Now Kaiser, two wrongs don’t make a right! We should not sink to his childish level… SIKE! I wish his chompers would have flown out of his little butthole shaped mouth, ricocheted off a camera and hit Pence in the face.

  20. themummy says:

    I’d be very shocked it it were dentures only because he can afford the best of the best in dental care. Rich people get implants with veneers, not dentures. He also strikes me as way too vain for dentures. I was actually wondering if he was having a mini-stroke at the end there. I mean, dentures makes sense, but I’d just be so shocked to hear that he went with dentures instead of permanent implants….

    Hmm…

  21. Chef Grace says:

    Too bad he didn’t choke on them.

  22. PunkyMomma says:

    As stated up thread, my first thought was “why doesn’t he have implants?”, but then I wondered if he wasn’t having some other sort of neurological event.

    I’ve experienced migraines so severe my speech was slurred for a bit. I wonder if he was having a TIA .

  23. Eggyweggs says:

    That he has no teeth makes him even more relatable to the people who voted for him.

    • Amy Tennant says:

      What does that mean exactly?

      • Kitten says:

        OP is probably referring to Mountain Dew Mouth, prevalent in Appalachian communities in states like W. VA, which went to Trump by 68%.

        Sadly, most of these people don’t have access to the kind of dental care that rich bastards like Trump do.

      • Amy Tennant says:

        Yes, that’s what I thought.

        Sorry, I am a resident of that region myself (although definitely not a Trump supporter and I do have my teeth), and a little oversensitive to classism. I have seen good people in a variety of socioeconomic circumstances with varying levels of access to dental care and other amenities over the years. And also not so good people. But it gets my back up when I start sniffing the attitude of money+opportunity=good people, disadvantaged=bad. It’s a shorthand I’ve seen too often. My own mother was from east Tennessee in the Depression and has about four of her own teeth left, so– you see where I was starting to take offense.

        And it was some of that classism that has been blamed for making some people angry enough to vote for Trump in the first place. I’m not part of that reactionary movement by any stretch. I’m trying to make the area more purple at the very least. But there was that sentiment.

      • Kitten says:

        I totally get it, Amy Tennant. Nobody likes ignorant stereotypes of their home state and yeah, there’s an element of gross classism that occurs regarding the way coastal peeps (like myself) talk about people who live in more economically depressed areas in Appalachia region and/or middle of the country.

        Hope my comment didn’t offend–was just trying to explain my interpretation of OP’s comment.

      • Amy Tennant says:

        No, Kitten, you weren’t offensive at all. It’s all good. And OP, sorry I jumped the gun a bit, too.

    • Eggyweggs says:

      Hey, whaddya know, I’m from the same region and have likely seen some of the same people you have. These folks who support him look and say, wow, he’s just like me, he eats KFC and he can’t afford fancy dental care either. Nowhere in my comment did I say, “all people with no teeth are that way because they deserve to have no teeth” or “all people with no teeth support Trump.”

      • Amy Tennant says:

        Which is why I asked you what you meant. I could already feel my back going up, but I wanted to give you the opportunity to explain your comment before I let loose unfairly upon you. Like I said, I may be a little oversensitive and don’t want to find offense when it’s not intended.

  24. ORIGINAL T.C. says:

    I have no problem with the press ignoring his speech and making fun of him because he is a clown that punches down and makes fun of other people. Also we know this is just a distraction from #Russiagate, and to get his Evangelical voters to vote for Roy Moore. The timing of the announcement fits. His only true supporters at this point are White Evangelicals, White Supremacists and other hatemongers.

  25. Amy Tennant says:

    No, I’m not going to mock him for it, but I won’t deny anyone else their schadenfreude. You’re absolutely right that he would mock someone else if it happened to them, come up with some nickname and then refer to that person exclusively by that nickname ever after. He’d probably also say it was nasty or disgusting.

    But I don’t want to be like him.

  26. CommentingBunny says:

    Nope. Attack him on the substance (or lack thereof) of his statements. Attack him for his vanity and pettiness. But be better than him and decline to make petty attacks on things like.l loose dentures. Would he attack someone else for it? Yeah. So what. He’s not my role model. I’m better than that/him.

  27. Digital Unicorn (aka Betti) says:

    Fake teeth is fake news!

  28. KBeth says:

    I don’t think it was dentures.

  29. Jane says:

    @boredblonde I’m with you. TIA or mini stroke or a medicine mishap. His face droops when he slurs and his eye droops as well. Something isn’t right there.

  30. vava says:

    He’s pathetic. I won’t openly mock him for having dentures, but I’m kind of glad they slipped on him during his press conference. LOL. That would be embarrassing, even for him.

  31. KiddVicious says:

    He got his fake teeth some time before the first Apprentice. If you look at his teeth from earlier photos they’re a bit crooked, not as straight and white as they are now. Could be veneers. Maybe he and Princess Nagini got a 2 or 1 veneer special.

  32. Jerusha says:

    I was thinking slight stroke. One can dream.

  33. winterforever says:

    The slipping dentures is hysterical to me and I don’t feel remotely guilty. At least a few times a week I think to myself, OK my god there’s someone out there who is designated to spray this man down with self tanning solution probably on the regular in his skivies and you know it’s a woman.

  34. MrsClincy says:

    I can tell you this my mother has TIAs and that sounds nothing like it. It definitely sounded more like how my Aunts would sound when she would push her dentures out of her mouth mid sentence.

  35. Maria S. says:

    I guess this explains why he eats pizza with a knife and fork. My guess is that the biting/tearing combo would be challenging with dentures. He absolutely deserves to be made fun of because his vanity is so well-documented and if this were anyone else he’d be the first person on Twitter mercilessly attacking them. I’m just shocked that someone of his means didn’t go the dental implant route.

  36. Grumpier than thou says:

    I can’t believe the White House has now made a statement on this…. it was a dry throat apparently, nothing to see here! Definitely absolutely not a denture problem people, you’re all Bigly wrong, trump is virile, trump is strong, many people say that he has the best teeth. #priorities #letsnotworryaboutthemiddleeast

  37. Sansa says:

    I spent over 50k to have my upper mouth reconstructed this involves a) sinus lift 2) placement of bone grafts 3) implants 4) the final porcelain replacements aka the teeth. If you don’t go through the first two steps you have nothing to hold the new teeth in place. This takes years. I can see him not having the patience it’s not like a facelift you get it done over a weekend. 50 plus visits to the dentist over 3 years. As far as aging, your teeth are priceless for your appearance, as much if not more than hair! He probably thinks he looks great and nobody knows. How you can eat with them seems impossible.

  38. hmmm says:

    He’s a buffoon. There isn’t enough mockery in the world, but we do what we can. He deserves to be laughed at and pilloried at every turn. Narcissists can’t stand being made fun of. I save my pity for the millions of victims of this monster.

  39. Avery says:

    His skin looks so disgusting. I mean that picture up top is up close and it gives me the creeps.

  40. Avery says:

    My coworker just walked over and asked what I was laughing about. I am so embarrassed but it was so funny I really needed that laugh….this has been a rough week.

  41. Betsy says:

    I don’t think those were his dentures. He sounded like my grandma when she was having a stroke. I do not say that lightly, but that’s what it sounded like. My husband thought it sounded like drugs. His signature was messed up yesterday, Roland someone said that in the signing it looked like he was having difficulty signing. I do not for one hot second believe that this had anything to do with his teeth falling out.

  42. Deleted User says:

    I see Donny is continuing to govern with his middle finger. First the trillion dollar tax break for the rich (how are they going to pay for that?). and now he recognizes Jerusalem as Israel’s capital. It’s inevitable that people will die as a direct result of this decision and then there’ll be a response and the cycle of violence will continue. Of course telling Trump this won’t dissuade him. On the contrary it’s exactly what he and the military Industrial complex wants.

    • magnoliarose says:

      I am horrified he did this. I support Israel’s right to exist, but I don’t like the idea of hurting Palestinians when they suffer already. They are about to suffer even more in the coming months.
      In our Women’s Peace group one of the activists is a Palestinian woman who is vocal, and we disagree on some things but we agree on most things, and we were both devastated. I felt sick to my stomach about it.
      Why do that to people? No one but right-wing crazy people wanted that, and that fool Sheldon Addlebrain. I hate Nettiepot and his corrupt minions.

    • Snowflake says:

      I believe that. It’s like he’s deliberately trying to start a war.

  43. Sarah Mckaye says:

    LMAO! even his dentures are abandoning ship!!!! ROFL!!!!

  44. tmbg says:

    I was thinking it was a veneer that popped off or something, because I could have sworn I read somewhere that he has veneers. Maybe they are dentures, but somehow I can’t see Bigly agreeing to get them. He’s so vain he’d probably get an implant for each tooth.

  45. nancypants says:

    He’s a huge horse’s ass BUT I’m not sure it’s dentures either.

    My dentist doesn’t do veneers any longer because they can cause your teeth to be too big.

    If you have back molars removed, they can cause your speech to slur. Your tongue is no longer touching your molar(s).

    With his money, I think he’d get dental implants or something.

    I think it’s something else.

  46. Elisa says:

    Yes the hell I will make fun of his saggy self, even in stooping to his level I, and others like me, will still have ten times as many brain cells and dignity as Baby Fists and his ilk ever will. My feelings will never be mixed, let him choke on the dentures and rot.
