White House physician Dr. Ronny Jackson said today that a detailed mental exam was performed at the request of President Trump and that he passed with flying colors.
The president did exceedingly well on it. That was not driven at all by any clinical concerns I have; it was driven by the president’s wishes, and he did well on it . . .
I had no intentions whatsoever of doing that, like I said, because I didn’t feel it was clinically indicated. The reason we did the cognitive assessment is plain and simple: because the president asked me to do it.
He came to me and said, ‘Is there something we can do, a test or some type of screening we can do to assess my cognitive ability? . . . We picked one of the ones that was a little more involved. It was longer. It was the more difficult one of all of them. It took significantly longer to complete.
Now it’s time for a mental exam on Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski, whose obsession with removing the president from the White House and putting him in an institution has reached the point of peculiar.
