donald trump once again insists he’s not stupid… once again boasting that he “passed” a cognitive test during his presidency, which is actually quite easy to pass.
DT was in Delaware, OH this weekend for a rally… and at one point he brought up the Montreal Cognitive Assessment Test (MOCA) he took in 2018 – which he made famous in a Fox News interview a few years later…the whole “woman, man, camera, TV” thing.
His point to discuss it again…to reiterate, he’s smart…and NOT stupid, as he says the media makes him believe. Apparently, that’s why he wanted to do this at the time.
TRUMP: I asked the doctor, I said, ‘is there some kind of cognitive test I could take?’ … the last questions are much more difficult. Like a matter of memory. You will go ‘person, woman, man, camera, TV.’ So they say – ‘can you repeat that?’ … for me it was easy.” 😳 pic.twitter.com/pCKYONy3BH

Trump goes into detail about the conversation he had with then-doctor Dr. Ronny Jackson – how he insisted he take MOCA to silence the haters who called him an idiot. He says he knew they were wrong…because he apparently has a long history of “geniuses” in his family.
The ex-Prez insists the exam is strenuous, or at least that’s what he says he’s been told – but as many have since noted… MOCA is very straightforward, consisting mostly into things like connecting alphabetical or numbered dots, drawing a clock, correctly identifying a lion or a camel, and being able to recite a series of words over and over…which Trump was proud to note, he did.
As you know, Trump’s mental fitness has often been questioned during his tenure – including one notable time when he appeared to articulate his words while speaking publicly – but he and his team dismissed it all… and the doc himself even had an explanation.
Now, as Trump appears to be gearing up for another race…he’s back on the intelligence horse. When you’re with him, you’re NOT stupid – or so DT thinks.
