Has anyone else noticed within the male members of the Trump clan a certain visual indication of some kind of progressive genetic degradation?
Put together a series of photos or videos, from “The Don” of the family, to oldest son Trump to Eric Trump, and yes I’m sorry but even last in line Barron.
It might just be me, but in looks and behavior I just can’t help but get the impression that there is some hereditary genetic disorder involved, that I suspect they know full well about.
No joke, seriously. I’ve noticed some kind of degenerative pattern in their apparent IQ’s. I could be mistaken and I’d like feedback asto the possibility I’m seing a realistic pattern. I may have even found a known disorder that has properties I find familiar. Soliciting thoughts from others about this:
Fragile X syndrome (FXS) is a genetic disorder. Symptoms often include mild to moderate intellectual disability. Physical features may include a long and narrow face, large ears, flexible fingers, and large testicles. About a third of people have features of autism such as problems with social interactions and delayed speech. Hyperactivity is common and seizures occur in about 10%. Males are usually more affected than females.
There is no cure. Early intervention is recommended as it provides the most opportunity for developing a full range of skills. These interventions may include special education, speech therapy, physical therapy, or behavioral therapy. Medications may be used to treat associated seizures, mood problems, or ADHD. Fragile X syndrome occurs in about 1 in 4,000 males and 1 in 8,000 females.(…)
(…) Individuals with FXS may present anywhere on a continuum from learning disabilities in the context of a normal intelligence quotient (IQ) to severe intellectual disability, with an average IQ of 40 in males who have complete silencing of the FMR1 gene. Females, who tend to be less affected, generally have an IQ which is normal or borderline with learning difficulties. The main difficulties in individuals with FXS are with working and short-term memory, executive function, visual memory, visual-spatial relationships, and mathematics, with verbal abilities being relatively spared.
Data on intellectual development in FXS are limited. However, there is some evidence that standardized IQ decreases over time in the majority of cases, apparently as a result of slowed intellectual development. A longitudinal study looking at pairs of siblings where one child was affected and the other was not found that affected children had an intellectual learning rate which was 55% slower than unaffected children.
When both autism and FXS are present, a greater language deficit and lower IQ is observed as compared to children with only FXS.
