Trump Bragged About Passing ‘Hard’ Dementia Test At RNC Dinner, Said Most Reporters Couldn’t Pass It





President Trump on Thursday reportedly bragged that he recently aced a “hard” mental acuity test during a Republican National Committee (RNC) dinner in Washington, D.C., according to The Hill.

Trump added that most members of the media would not be able to pass the test.

Breitbart News obtained an audio recording of Trump’s speech in which Trump tells the crowd he got a “30-for-30” score on a test that’s often used by doctors to screen for Alzheimer’s and dementia.

“You know that’s risky. If I take it, it doesn’t come out so good, they don’t get rid of it,” Trump said about the test. “It’s risky, does that make sense to people?

He then told the crowd that in the beginning of the test, he had to identify sketches of animals.

Breitbart adds:

Later in the test, he explained, he had to repeat disassociated words as the test administrators asked him to repeat them at different points in the test.

“Let me tell you, those last ten questions are hard,” he said, and added. “There aren’t a lot of people that can do that.”

Trump appeared proud of his health, commenting that his friends frequently talked about going into the doctor to get knee and hip replacements.

“You know why, because you use your hips so much,” he said, before adding. “I may have problems, but I’m never going have knee problems or hip problems.”
