The question everyone should be asking?

Why did he take a "dementia" test?

I doubt that he did it at the behest of the Democrats?

The people need to know.

2. It doesn't matter. He aced it.

He got a perfect score for dementia.

He is the most demented.

4. I think he took it when he went to Walter Reed suddenly

on a Saturday, allegedly (yeah, right) to get an early start on his annual physical. Sometimes that test is given to older people as part of a Medicare wellness exam, otherwise it would be given if the doctor thought the patient was showing other signs of neurological problems that might affect cognition, such as a stroke. But it's not an intelligence test, as Trump seems to want people to believe. It's to determine whether a person might have brain damage or dementia.

6. This is why I suspect a stroke

I seriously doubt he would have agreed to take it if it were just based on general concern about his mental "decline".

But remember that time he was whisked off, shirt unbuttoned, to the hospital?

That's the sort of episode that would get him to agree to take that doctors' tests.

9. I think that is when they tested him for dementia/neuro effects. He probably had an "incident/event"

Heís declining. Just not fast enough.

13. +1. It's part of some Medicare evaluations, but the test varies.

Some medical offices just get you to draw a clock and remember a few words, something like that. For most, itís easy. But it does make you wonder if this is the visit docs suggest finding a staffed home.

It appears they were quite concerned in trumpís case.

14. Yes.

Not a long written test.

They might ask you to remember three objects in the room, and then recall them once the visit had ended, but not a long written test unless requested by someone?

Very strange.

11. He scored positive. That is, he scored negative. He's negative. In other words, he scored positive

for negative, meaning negative. It's a positive result.
