Looks like mental health was part of the examination:

Quote:
WASHINGTON — President Trump’s White House 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.

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

Beyond that, there is various tax credits for the employer when hiring people with “disabilities”. Plus the race thing helps... Large employers have to show diversity. I know they are taking advantage of it when I filled out various forms documenting it.

Its great your employer takes diversity into consideration

I don't know about Pence, but I would definitely vote for Don Jr. Make Presidency a family tradition just like the Bush's! Then it's on to Eric Trump and we can't forget Barron Trump..... How many years is that? :mrgreen:

He was given a “rapid-screening instrument for mild cognitive dysfunction” that asks patients to repeat a list of spoken words, identify pictures of animals like a lion or a camel, draw a cube or draw a clock face set to a particular time.

Sounds like something given in kindergarten

and in times where telling the truth is a revolutionary act - in times where our leaders incite us to believe in absurdities and commit atrocities. some pertinent quotes for our times-

"A time is coming when men will go mad, and when they see someone who is not mad, they will attack him, saying, 'You are mad; you are not like us.'" Saying 25, Sayings of the Desert Fathers. Abba Anthony.
“The further a society drifts from the truth, the more it will hate those that speak it.” George Orwell
"The best lack all conviction, while the worst are full of passionate intensity." [William Butler Yeats]
''There is always an easy solution to every human problem -neat, plausible, and wrong." [H.L. Mencken]
"Growth for growth's sake is the ideology of the cancer cell." [Edward Abbey]"We can either have democracy in this country or we can have great wealth concentrated in the hands of a few. But we can't have both." - Justice Louis Brandeis

Nonetheless as bitter a pill as it may be to swallow, the offcial diagnosis is physically and mentally sound.

LOL — the latest conspiracy theory from NBC reporters is that Trump is lying about his weight, or maybe the rear admiral who is the presidential physician is lying about his weight. These conspiracy theorists are now officially called: #girthers :mrgreen: :lol:

No, it's a classic test to rule out the onset of dementia, quite a reasonable thing to do for a 71 year old. My 71 year old father-in-law failed the clock face test and the others. He was in big trouble.
