It never ceases to amaze how Donald Trump outs himself all the time and doesn’t realize it. He had a phone interview with Sean Hannity and revealed that he had recently had a cognitive test at Walter Reed and the doctors were “very surprised” he passed it. Here’s the clip. And of course he takes a swipe at Joe Biden and his mental faculties.

Now, could this recent test at Walter Reed be when he left suddenly at night last fall? And maybe they were “surprised” he passed a cognitive test, because he had had a stroke? Not fomenting conspiracy theory, merely speculating. Trump is noticeably slower these days. Don’t forget the hesitation going down the ramp and the lifting of the water glass with both hands. Who knows why? And here’s a thought: why else would he or anybody take a cognitive test in a hospital unless there was some kind of an episode like a stroke?

I wonder too. But don’t speak of it. Just ’cause.

“Rarely does anyone do what you just did” said the doctors as Trump “aced” the cognitive test. His puffery for himself knows no bounds. People ace cognitive tests all the time It’s just an indication that the person taking the test can spell the word “world” backwards, is able to subtract 7 serially from 100 down, knows the current date, and perhaps can identify a common object or two and maybe answer a couple other simple questions. Almost all sane adults can pass it with flying colors. I agree with your speculation about a vascular event. Good article.

My mom is of the opinion that he a) has had coronavirus (helping to account for the inner circle’s infection rate) and b) that he suffered a stroke (the weakness on his right side reminding her of her own stroke some years past). What we know of the science on COVID 19 would fit with these conditions being linked. Add in his poor health and even more poor maintenance of that health and he’s ripe for both.

I’m with you and Ursula on this, absolutely sounds like a TIA signs of a noticeable change in appearance, gait, distance judging all things that would key a doctor/doctors call for testing … his statement went on to the fluffing stage immediately, did not mention all the fine wires stuck to his head and the big machine surrounding him, with a very special monitor in front of his face … while laying as still as he could flat on his back …. a full blown stroke would probably have left a non-working appendage … of course with an immediate response… Read more »

Trump wants everyone to think he’s a smart person, but he’s an idiot, so he can only pretend to be an idiot’s idea of a smart person.

And he’s not even good at pretending.

Really smart people don’t boast about it. People who “ace” MOCA or whatever cognitive test they gave Himself don’t boast about it.

Concinnity, I love “an idiot’s idea of a smart person!” You nailed it!

A more likely scenario to me is that Trump picked up how his handlers are regarding him as senile (correctly) and that he made this story up from whole cloth.

As someone who ran psychiatry admissions at a prestigious university & a large psychiatric hospital, the only reason it would be done is due to concerns raised by observation. Draw ur own conclusions. All of them are probably pointing to someone who has damage.

I trust you, Scott. As with so many other things, Trump’s current political office alone is why he’s not in such a psychiatric facility right now.

I was looking at a pic of him elseweb this morning, and my first thought was that he looks really bad.

Check out his appearance on the lawn just before stepping aboard Marine1 … his face is flush, but more animated, statements more clear, and uses 1 hand to emphasize his statement … he’s riding up the hormone curve the one about being on the golf course instead of pretending to know anything about being our POTUS … probably has a couple hits on that Oxygen bottle hidden in his closet, back in the WH before he leaves … of course his message is usually, “I never met the guy.” “No one told me about that before.”

I donโ€™t think BLOTUS knows enough about medicine to make up a โ€˜cognitive testโ€™. โ€˜Cognitiveโ€™ is not in his vocabulary. People donโ€™t get cognitive tests unless the Dr suspects some reason for needing one. A cognitive test isnโ€™t part of a seniors regular physical unless the Dr notices something like an eyelid drooping or weakness /lack of reflexes on one side, There would need to be a sign or symptom the Dr notices. Iโ€™m not sure that late night run to hospital was part of stroke b/c even symptoms like someone suddenly not able to speak the correct words or… Read more »

If the doctors thought (or knew) he was bat shit crazy, they would definitely administer many tests. Has tRump just revealed something he should not have told us? OF COURSE he is lying about taking the tests or the results or the doctors’ amazement (more likely all three)!

If I were his doctor and had to convince him to take that test, I would certainly tell him he aced the test – regardless of what the actual results would say . . . just sayn’ The last part of sentence would be silent – “for someone in your condition.”

Trump is sick and he knows it. In fact they usually put a dog to sleep who acts like Trump.

Just because they give you a lollipop, doesn’t mean you passed.
Listening to his descriptions and justifications for his actions reminds me of my father in the later stages of alzheimers.

Yeah they were very surprised that he said he took the test. Hint, they were surprised because they hadnโ€™t given it to him, yet.
