Trump must have gotten the answers through an earpiece

I’m sure that’s the explanation for this:

President Trump’s physician said Tuesday that the president received a perfect score on a cognitive test designed to screen for neurological impairment, which the military doctor said was evidence that Mr. Trump does not suffer from mental issues that prevent him from functioning in office.

“There’s no indication whatsoever that he has any cognitive issues,” Dr. Ronny L. Jackson, a rear admiral in the Navy and the White House physician, told reporters on Tuesday. “I’ve found no reason whatsoever to think the president has any issues whatsoever with his thought processes.”

Dr. Jackson said that a cognitive test was not indicated for Mr. Trump when the president underwent his annual physical on Friday, but that he conducted one anyway because the president requested it after questions from critics about his mental abilities. He said Mr. Trump received a score of 30 out of 30 on the Montreal Cognitive Assessment, a well-known test used by the Walter Reed National Military Medical Center and other hospitals.

The president’s doctor said Mr. Trump’s overall health was “excellent,”…

Or maybe Trump sent in a double to take the test. Or someone sent him the questions in advice?

There must be some explanation. There must.

    The doctor’s lying, in cahoots with the Russians.

    [ sarcasm ]

    ( What’s a cahoot, anyway? )

  2. F Says:

    We need to ask where Donna Brazile was at the time.

  3. TommyJay Says:

    In an inexplicable fit of fairness, Jake Tapper gave Trump’s team the questions in advance.

  4. Dave Says:

    There was one ridiculous question from reporter about how could obama be healthier when both play golf and obama is a heavy smoker. I guess being 15 years younger couldn’t have had something to do with it.

  5. J.J. Says:

    The answer of course is that Dr. Ronny L. Jackson is a quack, an unqualified purveyor of the medical arts.
    Oh, wait: http://www.navy.mil/navydata/bios/bio.asp?bioID=953

    Wow, this man is top drawer! Obama and Trump are fortunate to have had such a doctor looking after them.

    My doctor now gives me a simple neurology test to detect early signs of dementia at each annual physical. I’ve passed thus far. Failing means the nursing home is nigh. Ugh!

    Neo’s April Fools post comes early. Time is passing faster and faster.

    I wanna know what Pelosi’s score is.

    You might be amused by this story. Years ago there was an article about a wanabe teacher in NY that failed the teacher certification test several times. In desperation he hired a homeless street person to take the test for him. He was caught because the homeless guy scored so high on the test, the graders became suspicious and thought he was cheating. Since Trump scored so high everyone will think he cheated.

  9. Oldflyer Says:

    Or maybe he is just smart as hell.

  10. Frog Says:

    “There must be some explanation”.
    For what?
    If for Trump, then there must be some explanations for his predecessors as well. Obama’s explanation might be “Hussein” and a communist grandpa, and BJ Clinton’s may be saxophones and seegars. Both were poor (in relative terms) on entering the White House, but both have become wealthy since, or because of, their presidencies.

    Trump came in wealthy, with a beautiful woman at his side. Maybe that is some explanation..

    Frog:

    Sarcasm on my part.

  12. M J R Says:

    Based on the simple straightforwardness I saw in him as he briefed the mainstreamers today — the latter being the ones exhibiting symptoms of dementia, not Trump — Rear Admiral Dr. Ronny L. Jackson is what, in my naivete, I might have expected from the likes of James Comey and Robert Mueller. SIGH.

    LOL.
    Did they give the homeless guy the job?
    I certainly hope they didn’t give the wanabe the job anyway.
    And what does that say about the teachers who did pass the test?

  14. Baklava Says:

    Questions as part of the test:
    1) Are you a racist? Trump: NO
    2) Do you disavow David Duke? Trump: Yes
    3) Who was the last serving member in Congress who was an active KKK member? Trump: Democrat Robert Byrd
    4) The Civil Rights Act of 1964 passed with more Democrat votes or more Republican votes? Trump: Republican
    5) Which party is for color blindness, equal opportunity and advancement based on merit? Trump: Republicans

    Democrats bellowing, “he’s racist racist” is really an attack on all of us who believe in life, liberty, the PURSUIT of happiness.

    While I don’t believe Trump is articulate – he truly is not a racist – he believes everyone should be treated equally under the law.

    My daughters are half Pacific Islander and they do not get preferential treatment – in fact they have to pass higher hurdles and I’M DEAD SET AGAINST these mean outdated race based bean counting racists.

    This press conference should invalidate the whole White House press corps (pronounced “core” by the way). It was 56 minutes of their trying to find anything to hang their whacko theories on. Their not used to a (republican) president fighting back the way Trump does. They’d gotten so used to having a pin cushion such as G W Bush to attack, they’re shell-shocked that this uncouth real estate developer from Queens outsmarts them at almost every turn. It’s fun to watch!

  16. brinster Says:

    They’re not used to….I’m a dunce.

  17. arfldgrs Says:

    THis whole 90% bad news from the press (yes, thats the number now, its improved 5%), only does ONE THING the left is not realizing

    it shows how much the left has infiltrated and controlled things including your thinking, what you dress, what ideas you have, and as willi said, never let them think that these ideas are not their own!

    if anyone had 5 brain cells to put together they might realize the reason for no effective moves from the not left for 40 years (see the picture of powers in senate president etc i keep linking to), is because there is this big machine that can destroy the innocent and sheild the devil.. (to the point he has his own show, and a good guy!!!)

    maybe having aspergers is a curse, maybe its a blessing but i sure dont see the things otehrs see as i cant get wrapped up in that kind of trash, it makes no sense to someone who has to think to be a part of something.

    The President scored a perfect 100 per cent on the Montreal Cognitive Assessment (MoCA) – a 30 question task created by medical professionals to test for dementia.

    It’s designed to assess attention, memory, concentration, orientation, visual skills, calculations and executive functions.

    To the able-minded, the test may seem overly simple but they are some of the basic mental processes people with the disorder sadly lose.

    Trump’s doctor earlier revealed how the president scored a perfect 30 on the test, where anything above 26 is considered “normal” and anything below is a cause for concern.

    The game that is played is imaginative assumption is reality
    and the left validates that, so blacks think whites are out to get them, women think men have abused them for eternity and when they finally get rid of them and die out (dike out?), they will be free..

    anyone ever explain to these ninnys that freedom is to be alone?
    no one, unless totally alone, with nothing (maybe in a room of their own) and nothing to lose, and no one to care for or to care back, then your free…

    rivers belong where they can ramble
    eagles belong were they can fly
    i got to be
    where my spirit can run free
    gonna find my corner, of the sky…

    but at the end..
    im not a bird, or a raging brook..
    that runs to the sea
    and if i am not tied to anything
    i wont truly be free
    we had it all my love
    we almost came near
    it want there
    but it was always here..

    [probably got the lyrics a bit off]

    as the bondage kids say, your not truly free till your completely tied up.. just ask any shibari… Kinbaku-bi…

    that is one of the comforting things about being on the left, your bound and your world is defined and what is right and wrong you dont have to decide. They tempted women with rights and no responsibilities and watched things basically fall apart knowing that the way humans are, you can be in a sh*thole and love it and never know or realize its falling apart as you defend it as you defend yourself!!!

    they must be laughing their arses off in meetings..
    i would be…

    “My daughters are half Pacific Islander and they do not get preferential treatment – in fact they have to pass higher hurdles and I’M DEAD SET AGAINST these mean outdated race based bean counting racists“

    To me there is nothing more racist than an antisemite from a white southern slave owning family with zero African American heritage culturally appropriating an African American identity and stealing affirmative action set asides from people whose family were owned and raped by his.

    faucahontus you’ve got nothing on Barry.

  19. arfldgrs Says:

    lets lay this out… since you ignore it, why not put the salient part up AGAIN? and AGAIN?

    if saying the big lie over again makes it truth
    does ignoring the big truth force us to look for lies we like?

    here is what is in front of you… it was written over 100 years ago as an instruction manual for this kind of thing.

    if only you bother to read it AND APPLY it – think of the democrat party the me too, the attacks from press, the protecting leftists with skeletons and making fake skeletons for opposition (if they had real ones, they would be SLAVES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! which is why you know trump is honest, and authentic. if they had something on him, he woud be what they want him to be OR ELSE)

    dont you think that Anthony and Huma made a deal to return to the fold and do what they want?

    The third category consists of a great many brutes in high positions, distinguished neither by their cleverness nor their energy, while enjoying riches, influence, power, and high positions by virtue of their rank. These must be exploited in every possible way; they must be implicated and embroiled in our affairs, their dirty secrets must be ferreted out, and they must be transformed into slaves. Their power, influence, and connections, their wealth and their energy, will form an inexhaustible treasure and a precious help in all our undertakings.

  20. arfldgrs Says:

    “They overtly target Democratic states with this tax bill,” said Andy Thorburn, a businessman running to replace the retiring Royce, echoing a message Democrats are pushing throughout the state. “It’s the first time in my lifetime at least that the federal government has been used in a punitive manner.”

    look at his age, and then let me know the events the dems did that amounted to using the government in a punitive manner…

    I wonder what Eric Gardner would think when the state made free commerce in reselling cigs a crime and so, sent the government to him to do what? it certainly wasnt a mollycoddle party

  21. Cornflour Says:

    For masochists and the curious, here’s an example of the response from the Left:

    “Ziad Nasreddine, who developed the test, immigrated to Canada from Lebanon as a teenager. He delivered a very understated sick burn when interviewed by the Canadian National Post, which wrote that “he hopes the president draws lessons from [the test]: This shows how immigrants, and Arabs, can make valuable contributions to American society.””

    Brinster,
    Blame the spell checker. That’s what I do.

  23. Romey Says:

    It’s all about the narrative, this doctor clearly does not read or care to follow the dinosaur media’s narrative.

    Attacks on the doctor’s Wiki bio, LinkedIn account, FB, and Twitter should be starting about now.

    Mr. Trump has been in front of the cameras longer than some of Ben Rhodes’ pawns have been alive.

    Government is always used positively by Democrats; it is only Republicans who use it punitively.

    Just ask the farmers fined by the EPA for for interfering with the Navigable Waters of the US by filling in low spots in their pastures — thank Trump for Scott Pruitt rolling back all of the insane EPA regs of the last decade.

About Me

Previously a lifelong Democrat, born in New York and living in New England, surrounded by liberals on all sides, I've found myself slowly but surely leaving the fold and becoming that dread thing: a neocon.
