But aside from not being able to ask, Khloe said that Lamar is actually having a tough time putting words together at all and has to learn how to feed himself again.

But Lamar is still Lamar, according to Khloe, who revealed he still has his sense of humor. “He was watching you show and it was making him laugh,” she told Ellen. ’He’s able to smile and laugh at appropriate times, which is awesome, and he was watching your show when it happened.
