The cognitive test that Trump brags that he ‘aced’ is likely the MOCA or Montreal Cognitive Assessment. The MOCA is a very basic test and if you are not having any cognitive problems, it is ridiculously easy.
People that ARE having cognitive difficulties will have trouble with this test.
In general, the MOCA is used as a quick test for things like dementia and short term memory loss. This is the kind of test they give you after a head injury, a stroke, or when your next of kin complains that you are going senile.
‘Acing’ the MOCA is nothing really to brag about, but trouble with any section immediately alerts medical professionals that something is amiss.
How did you do? Did you ACE it?
If the doctors were “VERY SURPRISED” by Trump’s results, it was either because he spectacularly failed the test OR they just could not believe that he was capable of passing it.
