JOE BIDEN/TRUMP AS PRESIDENT: “I asked the doctor, I said, ‘Is there some kind of a cognitive test that I could take?’… It was 30 or 35 questions. The first questions are very easy. The last questions are much more difficult. Like a memory question. It’s, like, you’ll go: ‘Person. Woman. Man. Camera. TV.’ So they say, ‘Could you repeat that?’ So I said, ‘Yeah. It’s: Person. Woman. Man. Camera. TV.’
‘OK, that’s very good.’ If you get it in order you get extra points. OK, now he’s asking you other questions, other questions, and then, 10 minutes, 15, 20 minutes later they say, ‘Remember that first question — not the first — but the 10th question? Give us that again. Can you do that again?’
And you go: ‘Person. Woman. Man. Camera. TV.’ If you get it in order, you get extra points.
They said nobody gets it in order. It’s actually not that easy, but for me, it was easy. And that’s not an easy question. In other words, they ask it to you, they give you five names and you have to repeat ’em. And that’s OK. If you repeat ’em out of order, it’s OK, but, you know, it’s not as good. But then when you go back about 20, 25 minutes later and they say go back to that — they don’t tell you this — ‘Go back to that question and repeat ’em, can you do it?’ And you go: ‘Person. Woman. Man. Camera. TV.’
They say, ‘That’s amazing. How did you do that?’
I do it because I have, like, a good memory, because I’m cognitively there. Now, Joe [Biden] should take that test, because something’s going on.”
