Trump can’t stop talking about taking the Montreal Cognitive Assessment (MoCA), a test which is usually administered to people whose family members are concerned about signs of mental decline, including early signs of Alzheimer’s Disease. Trump’s father suffered from Alzheimer’s from 1993 until his death at age 93.
But the more he talks about it, the more it raises suspicions that he likely did not pass it after all.
Transcript from FoxNews.com:
TRUMP: I said to the doctor, it Dr. Ronny Jackson, I said, is there some kind of a test? An acuity test? And he said there actually is and he named it whatever it might be. And it was 30 or 35 questions. The first questions are very easy. The last questions are much more difficult. Like a memory question. It’s like you’ll go person, woman, man, camera, TV. So they say, could you repeat that?
So I said, yes, I said, person, woman, man, camera, TV. Okay, that’s very good. If you get it in order, you get extra points. If you’re — okay, they’re always asking you other questions. Other questions, and then 10 minutes, 15, 20 minutes later they’d say, remember the first question, not the first, but the 10th question. Give us that again. Can you do that again? And you go person, woman, man, camera, TV.
If you get it in order, you get extra points.
