Trump said he aced a cognitive test. Is it a complicated test or no?

    No.  It's not complicated.  It involves things like drawing a clock and indicating the time, identifying a drawing of a giraffe, and remembering about a half dozen words for five minutes. 

    Moreover, the test is given to people who might have cognitive impairments, either from dementia, or things like TBIs.  It's not something you can really "ace".  Doing well on the test means you're normal.  Failing it means you've got cognitive impairment.  The fact that Trump says it was hard should make us all worry about his mental condition.

    He had to identify a hippopotamus or something. If he is proud of THAT, then God help us all.

    Look it up online, he had to tell the difference between an elephant and a giraffe...line drawing, not a photo. It's like bragging he got his shoes on the right feet today!

    Mostly,  the Montreal Cognitive Test is used -   

    Count backwards from 100 by 3s,  draw a clock with the current time, replicate a line drawing, remember a short list of words given earlier....    

    Not complicated for someone who is still with it.

    It must not be if feeble brained Trump aced it. Although he's most likely lying.

    It's probably something like "who is the president of the United States?"

    Trump doesn't even know what cognitive means.

    It's the test they give you to see if you have dementia. They only give you the test when they think you might. The fact that the doctors were surprised he passed it is very telling.
