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


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.

As I posted earlier it is not an exam to determine if a person is mentally ill or if a person has the skill set to be president. It should rule out the dementia theory but won't.

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:

Looks like he weighs more to me.My son is six foot and 220 and he's not thick like Tubby Trump.

Do you mean...
The test is ineffective... or
It won't stop the conspiracy theorists theorising.

Sorry, that's meant to be a genuine question, not a wind up.

It will be widely believed the doctor and his statements are part of a cover up.

‘A 70-plus-year-old man who is obese and doesn’t exercise’: Outside cardiologists say Trump’s physical reveals serious heart concerns

Cardiologists not associated with the White House said Wednesday that Trump’s very high levels of bad cholesterol raise the risk he could suffer a heart attack while in office.

https://www.thestar.com/news/world/2018 ... cerns.html



In the end it doesn't really matter what the official statement says, nor what outside doctors think. The only thing that matters is what happens. Either he stays well(ish), or he gets sick/has a heart attack.
