Trump cognitively sound, says doctor

The White House doctor announced today that Trump was administered the Montreal cognitive test and aced it with a score of 30 on 30.

You can try Dr. Nasreddine's test online.

Past presidents are not known to have been tested for mental acuity while in office - including Ronald Reagan, who five years after leaving the White House was diagnosed with Alzheimer's disease.

He says it has now been used in 200 countries, in 60 languages, and has been deployed in one developing country to demonstrate its leader was no longer fit to govern. Jackson also added that Trump's blood pressure and heart rate is completely normal.

To that end, Jackson will be working with the president to establish a regular exercise program, and will bring in dietitians to consult with White House chefs on healthier meals.

"The president's overall health is excellent", said Jackson, who predicted Trump would remain healthy for the duration of his presidency despite a diet heavy on fast food and an exercise regime limited to weekend golf outings.

President Trump, who wasn't scheduled to speak at the panel, made a surprise visit. "But I don't think good genetics trumps - I mean beats - bad lifestyle". Trump had responded by referring to himself as a "stable genius", and requested the cognitive exam.

Nasreddine cautioned that his exam doesn't test for everything.

"There is no indication whatsoever that he has any cognitive issues". He also points out that it can be tricked by someone with a very high level of education.

Finally, delayed recall is tested and the doctor will circle back to the list of words they told the patient in the memory test and the patient is asked to remember as many words as possible. Meaning organization, planning, abstract thinking...

Doctor Asked How Trump Is so Healthy If He Eats McDonald's and Doesn't Exercise — Shuts It Down in Three Words
Who is Dr. Ronny Jackson?

'The person with more body fat will look overwhelmingly bigger, especially if he has most of the fat around his belly'. "It does not absolutely assess personality issues". And one Arab-Canadian couldn't be prouder.

Nasreddine immigrated from Lebanon to Canada when he was 15 years old, along with his widowed mother and two sisters, fleeing civil war and sectarian violence in their home country, he told Canadian media.

Jackson grew up in West Texas and attended Texas A&M and the University of Texas Medical Branch.

In response to media questions, Jackson clarified that the MoCA test only assesses cognitive health - it can not judge any psychiatric conditions the president may or may not have.

But the United States president performed "exceedingly well" on cognitive screening, which is not standard but was requested by Mr Trump.

"It's really an honor for me", Nasreddine told the news agency.

"I've never seen the president stressed out about too much".

Trump has stated openly that exercise is overrated, even going so far as to say that it can create more problems than it cures.

Sounds good. Where do I sign up?
