I guess none of this matters though since Obama never released his physical, neither did Bush, or Clinton. Let's just trash Trump for being very open with the public about this.
.... I wonder if Hillary would have done the same? (not really, I'm pretty sure she won't have released anything since that was her MO)...

And what you are grasping is that there is precedent for the President to have a mental health evaluation every year.
Older people, usually those about Trump age, maybe a bit younger, around 60, start to develop a wide range of physical and mental problems at that stage of life. Dementia, is never really seen or diagnosed, until the person has gone through it for a few years. And while Trump may be physically fit, the question of his mental capacity is of concern and one that we should be concerned with and think about. Several times in the past, presidents have either had mental health issues, due to the stress of the job, or it had developed in the course of their life and it started to affect them.
So while no the man is not required for such, perhaps it is a good idea for him to have such, that way it would prevent a few things, that have been suggested, and talked about both in public and in private.
You just keep hoping for something that will never come. Trump aced his cognitive test. A test he insisted upon since all you knuckleheads were saying he had a problem.

It’s one test.
For me getting a perfect score is too perfect given the behaviour he displays in your signature for example. Also these cognitive tests are themselves not diagnostic of dementia or any other kind of cognitive impairment or mental health issues, they are just one tool used in diagnosis.
Would be interesting to know if he had a full MRI done as this can also be used to aid in a diagnosis.
For me this will only ever be settled if he undergoes a independent and full psychiatric evaluation. For now this is all we have so I acsept it in the absence of any objective proof the contrary yet I remain very skeptical and still maintain he and all Presidents (or other state leaders) should be subject to a full and independent psychiatric evaluation..
I am not wishing for an insane president. No one does. They are dangerous and one that no country should be entitled to.
