Trump Claims He Received Extra Credit On His Dementia Exam
President Trump claims that he got a “perfect mark” and even got “extra points” on a 2018 cognitive test, according to The Daily Beast.
- Trump has called on former Vice President Joe Biden to also take the Montreal Cognitive Assessment, which is meant to test for cognitive impairment.
- During an interview with the president, Fox News anchor Chris Wallace pointed out that the test wasn’t that hard since it was meant to test for cognitive disabilities. Trump insisted that it was in fact a difficult test and implied that Wallace “couldn’t answer many of the questions” while boasting that he “answered all 35 questions correctly.”
- Trump discussed his results yet again in another interview with Fox News medical contributor Dr. Marc Siegel. Describing the test, Trump said, “And then, 10 minutes, 15 minutes later, remember the first question, not the first but the tenth question? Give us that again,” playing the role of administering doctor. “And you go ‘person, woman, man, camera, TV.’ If you get it in order, you get extra points!”
- The president describes the doctors being in awe:
“They say, ‘That is amazing. How did you do that?’ I do it because I have, like, a good memory. Because I’m cognitively there.”
