During his appearance, he explained that he went to book travel for him and his wife, when he realized he couldn’t remember her birthday.

“I couldn’t figure it out. So I texted my wife and I said, ‘Can you call me?’ And she called me and said, ‘What’s going on?’” he said. He also said he couldn’t remember where she and the kids were at the time.

He said he had “zero recollection of anything” at that time.

“I had no idea who I was, where I was. I even wrote a note…on my laptop I wrote a note that said, ‘For our records, I have no idea why I’m wearing these clothes. I have no idea where our kids are. I have no idea what day it is. I have no idea why I’m writing this.’”

He found out after visiting a neurosurgeon that he had transient global amnesia, a sudden episode of temporary memory loss. It was luckily a one-off, and his memory came back after an MRI.
