I don’t want to make this about Trump if possible. I don’t 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 shouldn’t one be tested to be president??

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

Test the voters instead. That's where the problem is.

Especially the type that are the following: a nagging SJW and Flat-Earth mother-in-law who lives in a van down by the river with Seymour, a Chris Walken-sounding and silent film-watching vegan cannibal zombie moose.

Guess the anwser is no. Who cares if their pick for president is about brain dead? Then again it would explain a lot.

I agree it would be a good idea to screen for cognitive impairment, esp. since the President is the one with the nuclear codes. I would only argue that the young are vulnerable to it as well. One type of dementia, frontotemporal dementia, can strike as early as 40 years of age. So being younger shouldn't be a disqualifying factor for being tested.

Well considering one must be sociopath to even want the job, much less do it once elected, I fail to see the validity of such a test.

This would be ripe for corruption. As it is, the corrupt Deep State tried to invoke the 25th Amendment to get Trump out. Thankfully, it didn't work.

So why don't Democrats apply this test to blood vessel bursting barely lucid Joe Biden?




i.e. Put your money where your mouth is, or you ain't saying nothing.
