The Question Thread

Generally an unmoderated forum for discussion of pretty much any topic. The focus however, is usually politics.

I don't usually watch trump, but yesterday I watched a 5 minute video of trump explaining to Chris Wallace how he did better than anyone on his dementia test.
When I looked for it today, I couldn't find it. I found a bunch of articles explaining it and these articles had 4 and 5 minute videos, but all had been changed to coronavirus bs.

Does anyone have a link to the long video about the test, all I can find is short tweet videos?

The best part of that interview was when Trump was explaining to Wallace how difficult the test was and how he aced it, and how the last five questions were exceptionally hard. Wallace responds with (paraphrased) "Sir one of the questions was to count back 7 from 100", Trump says something then Wallace says the answer "93".

Trump's use of hyperbole makes him sound ridiculous most of the time, but this time he made himself sound like a complete moron (more so than usual).

Maybe you were searching "dementia test"? I went to YouTube and entered "trump Chris Wallace". Its first auto-suggestion was "trump chris wallace cognitive" :lol: . I guess thousands or millions are most interested in that part.

There are many vids ranging from 1.5 minutes to over 10. This one is fun:

Just when you think that's not possible . . .

I think it's more a case of a dumbass thinking he understands something but without realizing it, reveals he has no understanding of it at all. It's how the cat fan rolls, too.

The same doctor who gave trump his first physical. He gave a kiss-ass speech to the press about trump's superior health and said that he could live to 200 if he would stop eating cheeseburgers. Dr. Ronnie Jackson, the same guy who lied about trump's weight.

It's surprising that no one in the media has pointed out that the doctor who administered the test is capable of telling lies for trump so patently false that they don't need research to debunk.

Makes me believe trump's claims about getting extra points. Did Doc Ronnie need to award the extra points to cover trump's wrong answers?

In the Naming the Animals section, did trump really name the lion, rino, and camel, Bill, Gus and Joe?

I don't think the doc has spoken publicly on the issue. PINO could be lying . . . or maybe he's confused about what the results were. :D

"Joe the Camel" is correct, but the lion is named "John Lewis" and the rino is "Mitt". ;)

Therefore, he missed two and the nice man, doc ronnie, said, it's okay, no one will know because you'll do so well on the extra points section that it will more than make up for a couple of misses.

He couldn't beat Carter in 80, it was Reagan's to lose.
