Okay, so y’all saw the clip from the Chris Wallace interview where Wallace barely contains his amusement over Trump’s bragging about the mental acuity test he took, right?
Turns out that one of the questions requires the interviewee to know what an elephant looks like. Not exactly string theory.
But during the Wallace interview, Trump insisted that the questions get far, far more difficult. So difficult there was no way Chris Wallace could ever answer them. And Biden? Pfft. Not a chance. I mean, this is super genius-level stuff.
So here goes:
I said to the doctor, who is Dr. Ronny Jackson, I said, is there some kind of a test? An acuity test? And he said there actually is, and he named it, whatever it might be. And it was 30 or 35 questions. The first questions were 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’d say, could you repeat that? So I said, yeah, so it’s “person,” “woman,” “man,” “camera,” “TV.” Okay, that’s very good. If you get it in order, you get extra points. Okay, now he’s asking you other questions. Other questions. And then 10 minutes, 15, 20 minutes later, they’d say, remember the 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.
1) By all means, keep talking about your dementia test. It’s a fantastic look for you.
2) That’s not an especially difficult question, and I’m high half the time.
3) These look like Family Feud answers for “name a word Donald Trump can actually pronounce without sounding like a drunk Muppet.”
I mean, really. This is what the actual president of the United States is spending his time on? In the middle of a deadly pandemic? This.
Please do whatever you can to help elect Joe. Please.
