I donít want to make this about Trump if possible. I donít feel that this would be ageist to test future presidents or whoever is in office to have them take it every so often. If more if they are approaching 70 plus years. I think maybe having a younger president in office would quite naysayers. Or not being able to run for office at said age. we retake our eye exam at the DMV, the military requires testing, so why shouldnít one be tested to be president??

Last question. Who would administer this test without being biased?

I'd suggest a math and economics test, as well as a check for mental illness. Mental midgets such as Warren, Screech and most of the rest of the current Democratic field that can't propose a way to pay for their promises need to be kept from any position of power or authority.

i.e. Put your money where your mouth is, or you ain't saying nothing.
Biden was addressed in the video just as dear leader was. Iím sure you wouldnít want him to be tested.

Test voters. And add an IQ test. An IQ of 100 to be able to vote. There would be riots.

I don’t think it would be so much about party both sides have their idiots. Trump would of never got elected president and I’m betting Biden wouldn’t either, or GWB.

This should go for Vice Presidents as well or anyone else running for office.

Being it is NOT a requirement in the Constitution, who cares?

No doubt there should be a bar.

It can be multiple tests and a relatively low bar, but no Reagan should have been in office his last year or two. I can't say whether or not Trump would pass.

I would also like some very basic intelligence tests - shouldn't a POTUS know how to spell, write and do math at an 8th grade level? How about Geography and Science?

It seems to be that the bar for POTUS should be higher than the bar for a state college!

The Constitution never claimed to be the be-all of Law. It is a baseline.

The Founders clearly said the Constitution was for a moral, ethical and educated populace (or at least political office was!)........

Based on your perspective, we could have someone in a Coma as POTUS as long as one of their aides insisted that she or her could read his eyeballs and hand signals.

Silly......as if Warren couldn't pass every one of those tests with flying colors. Have you ever taken the LSATS? They are probably 6X as hard as a basic test for POTUS would be.

I'm with you. Give the test. You can have your opinions as to who will pass but I think I know a bit more about what it takes to ace the LSATS and get into top Law Schools.
