Trump Declares Himself A Genius After Taking Mental Acuity Test, Says He ‘Aced’ It – ‘Nobody Will Come Even Close To Me’

Former President Donald Trump expressed his anger towards Murdoch-owned media outlets, Fox News and the Wall Street Journal, on Sunday, in response to a WSJ poll that he believed focused on his “age and mentality.”

In a social media post, the former president proudly claimed that he had “aced” the 2020 dementia test, specifically known as “the Montreal Cognitive Assessment” test.

Trump continued to boast about a “mental acuity test” he underwent in 2020, which was administered by now-Republican Rep. Ronny Jackson (TX).

Phony and Rigged

Trump remarked, “In a phony and probably rigged Wall Street Journal poll, coming out of nowhere to soften the mental incompetence blow that is so obvious with Crooked Joe Biden, they ask about my age and mentality.”

Acing The Test

He went on, saying, “Where did that come from? A few years ago, I was the only one to agree to a mental acuity test, and aced it.”

Not About Mental Acuity

It’s worth noting that the 2020 test wasn’t intended to evaluate his mental acuity but was designed to track cognitive decline over time.

During an interview with Fox, Trump admitted that the memory questions were the most challenging for him. In that test, he memorably recited: “Person. Woman. Man. Camera. TV” and claimed success.

Trump Challenged Biden and Others

Trump then issued a challenge to several individuals, including “Rupert Murdoch & Sons, Biden, and WSJ heads,” to take their own mental acuity tests for score comparison, which he confidently expects to win.

He concluded by saying, “I will name the place and the test, and it will be a tough one. Nobody will come even close to me.”

Physical Activity

The former president expanded his challenge to encompass a physical dimension. He stated, “We can also throw some physical activity into it. I just won the Senior Club Championship at a big golf club, with many very good players. To do so you need strength, accuracy, touch and, above all, mental toughness. Ask Bret Baier (Fox), a very good golfer.”

Trump kept going, “The Wall Street Journal & Fox are damaged goods after their failed DeSanctimonious push & stupid $780,000,000 ‘settlement.’ MORONS!!!”

'Where is the Proof??'

One user questioned, “WTF is he talking about? He didn’t pass any mental acuity test. Just because he said he took one and aced it doesn’t make it so. Where is the proof??”

Other comments included, “Trump is the one who most definitely needs a mental test. He couldn’t even comprehend that he lost the last Presidential election!!!”

Attacks On Trump

Another reader humorously remarked, “Trump this! A fart has more of an IQ than Trump does.”

One user expressed their view, stating, “Trump may have passed that “acuity” test but could never pass a test of compassion, a test of valor, a test of empathy or a test of integrity.”

Another participant on the platform added, “Trump ‘aces’ everything provided it is rigged.”
