Pharmacist, “Wow, they’re making the highest laws of the land and they might not even remember what happened yesterday…”
In a shocking report published by STAT News Erin Mershon, pharmacist Mike Kim revealed that he’s “filling drugs for some pretty serious health problems” like Alzheimer’s to members of Congress.
These medicines may temporarily help improve memory and daily functioning in some people who have Alzheimer’s disease. The results very, but these medicines don’t prevent the disease from getting worse, they only slow down the symptoms of mental decline.
The disease is a slow, progressive illness that damages nerve cells in the brain. Symptoms gradually get worse over time as more brain cells are destroyed. Though people can have Alzheimer’s in their 30s, 40s, and 50s, the disease is most prevalent in people over age 65. The first problem many people with Alzheimer’s disease notice is forgetfulness and confusion.
Nancy Pelosi is a prime example of someone suffering from what appears to be Alzheimer’s.
In February Pelosi referred to President Trump as President Bush saying, “‘We’ve seen nothing where we can, where — where I can work with President Bush on.”
Watch the comical look on Rep. Maxine Water who was standing next to Pelosi, she looked around, visibly worried by Pelosi’s gaffe.
“Whoever wins understands the priorities of the American people, and they are not what President Bush–” Pelosi told ABC’s George Stephanopoulos before catching herself.
“I’m so sorry, President Bush. I never thought I’d pray for the day that you were president again,” Pelosi joked in an attempt to clean up her mistake.
While speaking at The Commonwealth Club in San Francisco in May, Pelosi once again said that Bush was the current president.
“And a lot of those people voted for George – for, what’s his name,” Pelosi asked the moderator apparently struggling to remember Trump’s name.
It’s a miracle if House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi goes one week without making a gaffe. Pelosi recently opened her weekly address lecturing the press about the seriousness of her position. Despite being a member of Congress for decades, Pelosi screwed up the oath of office, forcing her to look down at her notes, the GP reported.
PELOSI: “As you know, today we’ll be debating what’s called the minibus, minibus. Not an omnibus, everything, minibus. And it, on the subject of security, as you know, all of us, anyone who serves in government or civically involved takes an oath of office to protect and defend. Support and defend the Constitution of the United States. Our first responsibility is to protect the American people and our constitution. If people are not safe, how can we proceed in any other way?”

STAT News reports:
Mike Kim, the owner of the pharmacy, said he has gotten used to knowing the most sensitive details about some of the most famous people in Washington.
“At first it’s cool, and then you realize, I’m filling some drugs that are for some pretty serious health problems as well. And these are the people that are running the country,” Kim said, listing treatments for conditions like diabetes and Alzheimer’s.
“It makes you kind of sit back and say, ‘Wow, they’re making the highest laws of the land and they might not even remember what happened yesterday.’”
Kim’s tiny pharmacy — which, at its busiest, sends as many as 100 prescriptions to members in a day — is nestled among Capitol Hill’s stateliest row houses, less than four blocks from the Capitol building itself. Founded in 1867 and named for a previous owner, the pharmacy predates penicillin, the American health insurance system, and even the Lincoln Memorial.
And it’s not just Nancy Pelosi who is suffering from signs of memory loss – Congresswoman Maxine Waters (D-CA) has confused Russian president Vladimir Putin for Vice-President Mike Pence when calling on her Democrat peers to push for impeachment on ‘The View’, the GP reported.
Below is a clip and short transcript of the bizarre exchange between host Joy Behar and Rep. Maxine Waters.

JOY BEHAR: “Do you think Pence will be better than Trump?”
MAXINE WATERS: “No, and when we finish with Trump, we have to go and get Putin. He’s next.”
JOY BEHAR: “Putin or Pence?”
MAXINE WATERS: “Pence”
Oops! Typical Mad Maxine. The Trump-obsessed lawmaker also called President Trump “the most deplorable person” she had ever met.
According to Heavy.com:
The interview on “The View” was Waters’ second TV appearance of the day. She met with the panel of MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” just hours before for an interview and reiterated her displeasure with the president.
[…]“I’ve long thought that there was a lot of smoke, even fire, and that everything that I have learned about this president, starting with the campaign itself, that people should have understood that there was something terribly wrong with him,” Waters said. “As a matter of fact, I have said over and over again, I think he’s the most deplorable person I’ve ever met in my life.”
When you consider the age of many Congressional members it’s no wonder they require Alzheimer’s medication – not only are many of them over 65, they have been members of Congress for over 30 years… it’s time for term limits!
