There has probably never been a time in our history when the public has been so concerned over a so-called president’s mental health. And again today we’re reminded why as Donald Trump ventures into an alternate reality without a babysitter. The White House doctor released his findings of the 71-year-old former reality show star’s health and no one believes that he’s in ‘excellent health’ including experts in the field. Trump reportedly asked Dr. Ronny Jackson to do a cognitive test and to our surprise, he’s fit to hold office – allegedly.
And look how hard this ten-minute test is to pass:
I’ve administered this test many many times and it is a test for very basic cognitive functioning…things like draw a clock or write down this sentence I say or fold this paper in half….NOT solve the worlds nuclear problems

Only a ‘stable genius’ could pass that.
On Wednesday, Trump bragged about his score on the cognitive test, then suggested that he scored higher than his predecessors.
In an interview with Reuters, the former reality show star blamed former Presidents Obama, George W. Bush and Clinton for failing to solve the nuclear threat from North Korea, and he touted the cognitive test as the reason he’s successful in solving the world’s problems (LOL).
“I guess they all realized they were going to have to leave it to a president that scored the highest on tests,” Trump said in the interview.
We aren’t aware that Trump’s predecessors took such a test. That’s probably because, even though we differ with some of them politically, they weren’t batshit crazy.
“Russia is not helping us at all with North Korea,” Trump said during an Oval Office interview with Reuters. “What China is helping us with, Russia is denting. In other words, Russia is making up for some of what China is doing.”
Well now! Trump has been warned about Russia since before he took the oath of office and now it’s dawned on him that the hostile foreign country is not besties with the United States. You see how quick he is to pick up on important issues like that an entire year after taking office?
On Tuesday, Dr. Jackson stunned the world by saying that Trump performed well and in the cognitive test and that there was “no indication” that he had any cognitive issues.
Jackson then dismissed scrutiny over the Trump’s mental state, calling it “tabloid psychiatry.”
“People shouldn’t be making those kind of assessments about the president unless they have the opportunity to get to know him and examine him,” he insisted.
But, even as amateurs in the field, while witnessing Trump lashing out at foreign powers on Twitter, we can determine that he’s just not right in the head.
As for his physical health, experts in the field disagree with Jackson. Trump has heart issues. On a positive note, Trump has been declared fit for office, meaning that he can’t plead insanity in court later on down the road.
Meanwhile, Trump’s obsession and jealousy of President Obama is on display for the world to see.
