Doctor: Trump got perfect score on cognitive exam

January 17, 2018

President Trump insisted on taking a cognitive assessment exam as part of his annual physical last week, and scored a 30/30 on the test, confirming his doctor’s belief that he does not show any signs of mental deterioration.

“I had no concerns about the president’s cognitive ability,” Dr. Ronny Jackson, Trump’s in-house doctor who oversaw his physical exam at Walter Reed Medical Center in Bethesda, Md., last week, told reporters on Tuesday.

Jackson said Trump nevertheless requested that he undergo a neurological exam, presumably to combat heightened speculation among his critics about his fitness for office and overall mental health. He said it’s the first time any president took this kind of test, as far as he knows.

“He mentally is very sharp, very tact,” Jackson told reporters, noting that Trump scored 30 out of of 30 on the Montreal Cognitive Assessment, a test that can help detect mild cognitive impairment or Alzheimer’s disease.

“The cognitive test, it’s well-respected. It’s a test that’s used throughout the United States,” he said. “The fact that the president got 30/30 on that exam, there’s no indication whatsoever that he has any cognitive issues.”

In a book released earlier this month, several unnamed White House aides said Trump has been known to constantly repeat himself and forget the names of key people in his circle and the West Wing. The passages led critics of the president to suggest he may be unfit for office.

    Tactics of the left are lifted directly from the Saul Alinsky book Rules for Radicals. A book the author dedicated to the one he most admired, Lucifer.
    If there is any better example of the motivation behind the actions of the movers and shakers on the extreme left, I would like to see it.
    The sickening odor of evil oozes from their actions.

    Trump has gone above and beyond to prove to the media and the left wing party he is fit. I think at this point if any of the left wing politicians wish to bring up any other deficiencies they feel that he may have they should be made to take the same test, ALL of them. If the president needs to take a test they deem necessary for his position then the entire house and senate should be made to take the same test, and publish the results. We the people feel we need the best people in government not the luckiest or the wealthiest or the scammers that can fake their way in.

    Despite having a true medical professional actually diagnosing, face to face, the President as fit for duty, the media and the left (redundant) are still quoting a report from a far left psychologist who was censured for diagnosing with out examination. I found it interesting the comment DR. Jackson said about her diagnosis, calling it “tabloid medicine”. And, of course, now since the questions concerning his mental and physical health do not fit their narrative, lefties are demanding he get on a scale to find out what his weight is. With his health questions out of the way, they can now concentrate on the lies of Dick Durban and what he “heard” at a meeting that no one else heard. Maybe the media should demand an audiologist examine Durban for his hearing, or ask a psychologist examine his mental health in regards to his attitude towards this President?
