Skip to comments.What is the MoCA, the cognitive exam Trump took?
Posted on 01/17/2018 6:08:00 AM PST by RoosterRedux
President Trump earned a perfect score on a medical test that is used to detect early signs of dementia or Alzheimer's disease.
The test, called the Montreal Cognitive Assessment, was conducted during his routine physical on Friday, at the insistence of the president, who wanted to tamp down rumors about his mental abilities that have surfaced from his critics.
Dr. Ronny Jackson, the White House doctor who conducted the exam, said that he did not believe it was necessary because he hadn't noticed any issues with Trump's memory after spending the past year with him. The doctor's quarters are in close proximity to Trump's.
I spend every day in the presidents presence," Jackson said. "I see him two or three times a day. Ive had absolutely no concern about his cognitive ability or cognitive function.
The president received a 30 out of 30 on the test, causing Jackson to use that evidence, as well as his experience with him, to say that the president did not have "any issues whatsoever with his thought process."
The Montreal Cognitive Assessment, which takes about 10 minutes to complete, specifically asks patients to do mind games and assesses their ability to recognize pictures and count items in order, like the hands on a clock. It can help doctors see whether a patient has problems with short-term memory or difficulty with concentrating or language.

I scored 30 on it too, but the Lefties will tell us it is “racist” because it contains some math.
For the MSM/DNC/FBI, conservatism is a mental illness.
How did Hitlery Rotten Clinton do?
That’d be Shelia Jackson Lee’s excuse.
Not sure I’d score 30 on that one.
Is MoCA a racist term? Maybe we should ask George Allen.
IIRC, we had to take a similar exam back in the early 80’s to get a security clearance to work in certain nuclear power plants. I remember it taking longer than 10 minutes though. Maybe POTUS took an abbreviated one? Some of those questions are designed to provoke an emotional response like...”this is pure BS, I’m done!” but you know you have to plod thru it. Some of those questions are triple redundant on purpose to make you think how you answered it the first, or even the 2nd time. In the end, I guess they can tell from the given answers if you’re sane and on the “up & “up” or a potential saboteur, etc.?? Dunno if it did or not, but I got my clearance though.
“...All congress critters should take that test, especially Nanzi Pelozi....”
Yep. Everyone one of em should be required to take it before they’re ever seated in office. Better yet, they should take it and the results published before their election.
Bet Obama wouldn’t score 30. 57 States?
Not 57 states. 58. He said he’d already visited 57 and had one more to go.
One of these knuckleheads asked the doc yesterday what Trump’s waist size is. I mean, can you imagine any of these clowns asking this about Clinton? I remember Bill Clinton back in the 90’s would jog and then go to McDonalds to put down a big mac and fries. I don’t ever recall any of the reporters being so concerned for his health.
Besides, just about everyone of those WH reporters would get up, do a jig and cheer loudly if he keeled over and died. So, exactly why are they so concerned? Are they trying to coordinate a death celebration party?
It is actually 59 since he said he had been to 57 states but had not been to Hawaii or Alaska yet.
I couldn't agree more. The despondency and disappointment in the room was quite evident once the doctor proclaimed Trump's health as "excellent." To ask about his waist size and a one-time slurring of a word showed desperation on their part for some morsel of "hope" that Trump was somehow failing.
Actually, 60. He said he'd visited 57, had one more to go, and that he wasn't allowed to visit AK and HI.
Original quote: "It is wonderful to be back in Oregon," Obama said. "Over the last 15 months, weve traveled to every corner of the United States. Ive now been in 57 states? I think one left to go. Alaska and Hawaii, I was not allowed to go to even though I really wanted to visit, but my staff would not justify it."
When will Hillary take the test? Or has she already taken it many times?
