Trump challenges Biden to a cognitive test but confuses the name of the doctor who tested him

WASHINGTON (AP) - Donald Trump on Saturday night suggested President Joe Biden "should have to take a cognitive test," only to confuse who administered the test to him in the next sentence.

The former president and presumptive Republican nominee referred to Texas Republican Rep. Ronny Jackson, who was the White House physician for part of his presidency, as "Ronny Johnson." The moment came as Trump was questioning Biden's mental acuity, something he often does on the campaign trail and social media.

"He doesn't even know what the word 'inflation' means. I think he should take a cognitive test like I did," the former president said of Biden during a speech at a convention of Turning Point Action in Detroit.

Seconds later, he continued, "Doc Ronny Johnson. Does everyone know Ronny Johnson, congressman from Texas? He was the White House doctor, and he said I was the healthiest president, he feels, in history, so I liked him very much indeed immediately."

Jackson was elected to Congress in 2021 and is one of Trump's most vociferous defenders on Capitol Hill.

Trump, who turned 78 on Friday, has made questioning whether the 81-year-old Biden is up for a second term a centerpeice of his campaign. But online critics quickly seized on his Saturday night gaffe, with the Biden campaign - which has long fought off criticism about the Democratic president's verbal missteps - posting a clip of the moment minutes later.

Trump took the cognitive test in 2018 at his own request, Jackson told reporters at the time. The exam is designed to detect early signs of memory loss and other mild cognitive impairment.

The Montreal Cognitive Assessment that Trump took includes remembering a list of spoken words; listening to a list of random numbers and repeating them backward; naming as many words that begin with, say, the letter F as possible within a minute; accurately drawing a cube; and describing concrete ways that two objects - like a train and a bicycle - are alike.

Trump later said that he had to remember and accurately recite a list of words in order: "Person. Woman. Man. Camera. TV."

During the same speech in Detroit, Trump also referenced a video clip widely circulated online in Republican circles where Biden is seen during the recently concluded Group of Seven summit in Italy watching skydivers land with flags from different nations.

A cropped version of the video shows Biden stepping away from the leaders, turning his back and walking in the other direction. He flashes a thumbs-up but it's not clear who he is gesturing to. A more complete angle of the same scene, however, shows that the president had turned to face a skydiver who has landed.

Trump nonetheless seized on the video clip, falsely describing Biden turning around "to look at trees," drawing laughter and hoots from the crowd.

The Biden campaign issued a statement dismissing the clip as misleadingly cropped and accusing those disseminating it as "tampering with the video to make up lies."

The clips are edited and the MAGA faithful post them as fast and as often as they can. If you can't win honestly, lie your ass off. It is done on a daily basis on this very site.

Trump's test was probably a lie, too, considering he can't remember the name of the guy who gave it to him.

The test that Trump is bragging about is like a DUI test for a sober person. Great job, little man.

Well, how did Dementia Joe respond? One would think that if he was as sharp as you nuts think he is, he'd jump at the chance.

What about Trump failing to know the name of the guy who gave him the test?

What is really funny is that this is the Ronny Jackson who gave Trump such a glowing bullshiting bill of health that Trump bragged about.

He is also the same guy who was busted from Rear Admiral to Captain for being a jackass to his subordinates, drinking on the job, taking Rx drugs, hassling women, etc.

An Admiral getting stripped of rank is a big deal, and believe me he is now an outcast among his military peers.

Anyway, his was the perfect WH physician for trump...and a good source for adderall and ambian without traceability.

Go Ronny whoever-you-are!

Looks like Dementia Joe is not going to take up Trump's challenge. Weird, don't you think? All progs know that Trump is senile and that Dementia Joe is at his mental peak. Thus, agreeing to that challenge would salt away the election for Dementia Joe. Why wouldn't he agree to this clear slam dunk and coast to an easy win in November? Any thoughts, progs?

Why would he?
Because 67% of Americans think he is senile. Not all people are progs and those who aren't see senility as a detriment for a presidential candidate. So, it would help Dementia Joe's election chances greatly if he were to dispel this widespread perception of him. I realize that progs will not understand the crystal-clear logic of my response, but normal people will. If you have a normal friend or family member, you might ask them to explain why Dementia Joe should do this.

You said Biden wouldn't debate. Now Trump is making up bullshit on that one, too.

Trump won't do it, he's talking out his ass again.

From Seth Myers. Trump forgets all kinds of things. He forgot he was married.
