Trump’s Elephant Test

By | Saturday, July 25, 2020 Leave a Comment

So, Mr. Trump wants us to know that he passed his cognitive impairment test (The Montreal Cognitive Assessment test, or MoCA.) Boy does he want us to know it! He can’t bring himself to stop talking about it. Maybe he can’t get over the fact that he passed? 

What I want to know is, what if he didn’t pass it? Who is the poor schmuck that would have had to give him the news that he failed? Someone that was retiring the next day anyway? Someone who drew the short straw? My bet is no one. My money is on the testers telling Trump that he passed regardless of the actual outcome. Is Trump’s actual testing part of the public record? If so, I can’t find it.

Meanwhile, we know that Mr. Trump is a pathological liar. He told us that he passed the test, but how do we know? We can’t take his word for it. We can’t even necessarily take his word for his claim of having taken the test at all.

Lastly, given that Mr. Trump is clearly cognitively impaired, maybe he imagined the whole thing. Maybe there was a quiz on the back of his box of cereal, and he thought it was a cognitive impairment test.

Oh, to live in a country where such questions could never arise.
