There is an ongoing buzz about fast and furious gum chewing by the President as caught on camera.
Nicoret? He should be well over withdrawal if he quit when he claimed. But there he was at the end of a long day where he could not slip away if he were so inclined, working the heck out of some sort of gum.
Considering the President is not an honest man to begin with, a fair guess is he lied about quitting smoking which would explain a manic effort to extract nicotene from gum.
