DR. ZIAD NASREDDINE, DOCTOR BEHIND COGNITIVE TEST TRUMP TOOK: Yes, Erin, this test is meant to assess cognitive functions, meaning that we are assessing which cognitive domains would be effective and neurological illness. So we look at memory, the concentration, attention, executive functions, perception. So all these skills are assessed to determine somebody's cognition is okay.

BURNETT: So, just to kind of understand, would a healthy person who does not have any suspected cognitive or memory or concentration issues need to take this test?

NASREDDINE: The test is meant to assess someone if he's concerned, or the family is concerned about their performance. So they usually go to their general practitioner or through a memory clinic, and we do this screening cognitive exam to assess their cognition. So it's not meant to be done for somebody who is not concerned about it.

BURNETT: OK. So this obviously important just for everyone to understand. You know, people have been sharing some portions of the test. You know, the president obviously talked about some and there's, you know, a question ask if the patient can recognize the drawing of a lion. They've been doing this to sort of suggest that it's a very easy test, again, if you don't have any cognition or memory issues. Is it? I mean, how would you describe it? NASREDDINE: The test has been developed and it took many years to

develop it because it has to be hard enough to pick up subtle (INAUDIBLE) deficits that are signs of Alzheimer's. So it is meant hard for patients who have a cognitive disorder.

It could be somewhat hard for somebody who is normal, especially certain questions are harder than others, especially the five-word recall. Most patients do not get the five words. Most normal people don't get it after five or ten minutes delay. Most of them get 3.7 words. So it's not that easy to go through the whole testing.

BURNETT: And why would you take it multiple times? Would that be to see if you're seeing a decline in memory? As you talk about, this is kind of a gauge for Alzheimer's?

NASREDDINE: I mean, we really take it often -- every year, once a year, every two years if we have a concern, or one is just checking if the progression of our memories, if our memory is dealing well, if there's any decline with time.

After a certain age, there could be some decline because it's more common after 70 to have cognitive disorders, so it's not uncommon to have the test repeated once a year, every two years if the person is also some concern or if the family is concerned.

BURNETT: So, when asked about the ease of some of the questions, the president talked about the difficulty of later portions of the test, and obviously, you just made the point, the five-word recall can be very challenging for someone even who does not have onset of memory issues. But here's how he described it.

(BEGIN VIDEO CLIP)

TRUMP: Yes, the first few questions are easy. But I'll bet you couldn't even answer the last five questions. They get very hard.

(END VIDEO CLIP)

BURNETT: Is that fair, the last five questions are hard and a fully normal person would have trouble with them?


NASREDDINE: Actually, I think he's referring to the five-word question, because it does -- it is challenging. Some people get only two out of five, three out of five. It's not everyone can get five out of five or 30 out of 30 like I mentioned before. Only 10 percent of normal individuals get 30 out of 30.

BURNETT: Wow. Doctor, Ziad Nasreddine, I really appreciate your time. This was all very informative and important. Thank you, sir.

NASREDDINE: You're welcome. Thank you, Erin.

BURNETT: And thanks so much to all of you for joining us. CNN's global town hall "CORONAVIRUS: FACTS AND FEARS" with Dr. Sanjay Gupta and Anderson starts now.

Trump said that everything CNN says is a lie cuz they are out to get him? So all of a sudden they aren't lying? And since when is someone that is paid to say something all of a sudden credible source? If you failed a cognitive test but had the money to pay someone to say otherwise, wouldn't you?

It's kind of hard for the doctor to confirm that he did well when he was not the one who administered the test and we only have Great Brain's word that he got all 35 of the 30 answers correct.

So it turns out the Doctor who created the cognitive test Trump did went on CNN and, despite the leftist's constant claims that it was a simple and child-like assessment, only around 10% of people are able to achieve the score Trump did, even if they have no cognitive impairment.

Appearing on CNN’s “Out Front with Erin Burnett” on Thursday, Dr. Ziad Nasreddine told anchor Erin Burnett that a 30 out of 30 score – which Trump claimed to have attained – on the Montreal Cognitive Assessment is something only “10% of normal individuals get.”

Not only did he dispel the myth that he has lost some cognitive function, he absolutely aced the test and is in the top 10%. When is Biden going to do it?

dailycaller.com...

That has got to be the stupidest thing I've ever read on ats.
It was not a test per -say, so grading is not done. Cognitive abilities are assessed. So if you think tRump is some kind of mental genius for saying five words, you are as dumb as he is.
PERSON, MAN, WOMAN, CAMERA, TV.
You really want Biden to take it? Why

I laugh when I hear lefties who obviously have very low IQ’s ranting here about how stupid the President is and calling him a ‘reality tv star’.

He’s a multi billionaire and international business tycoon and has been since the 1970’s. But it’s beyond their own cognition to realise
Multi billionaire my ass. I doubt if he's a multi millionaire. The only money he has is probably what Putin allows him to have.

They were beautiful. We kicked ass and took names. Dropped nukes on the battlefield to kill the enemy and put the world on notice. We won the day. Seized victory from the grasp of fascist socialists in Germany and imperialist Japan.

Were fighting a very similar enemy today, one I hope our people meet with the same brute force and rock steady resolve

And let the cry babies cry like they always do (roll eyes)

Damn right. I sure as hell wouldn't. Moron democrat journalists would dox your name, mobs of democrat rioters would surround your house, all for what? Because this Dr did his job normally and they didn't like the result. That's the USA we're in now.

How'd that work out? They get her? They get all the other Federal Justices that would take her place? No?

I'd love to see the doctor who administered the test explain how Trump got 35 of the 30 questions correct.

There it is in Black and White plain as the nose on your face.
You caught that poster in a lie. Why am I not shocked from the history of these leftist Loons and liars? Can't win so they make sh*t up to prove a point that is DESTROYED by the act of lying to us about it. Destroyed and crushed any credibility to dust.

Not in relation to Epstein it doesn't. It had nothing to do with him.
