#UnpresidentedIdiot: Trump mocked in viral video for saying cognitive test was hard in Chris Wallace interview
President Donald Trump believes he is more mentally fit that former vice president and Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden to serve as the president of the country. In an interview with Fox News's Chris Wallace, Trump referred to a cognitive test he claimed to have taken at Walter Reed Medical Center earlier this month in an interview with Sean Hannity, and bragged to have “aced” the test so impressively that the doctors were “very surprised” and told him, “That’s an unbelievable thing. Rarely does anybody do what you just did.”
When Wallace noted that polls showed the country believed Biden to be more "mentally fit" than Trump, the latter responded, “Well, I’ll tell you what, let’s take a test. Let’s take a test right now. Let’s go down, Joe and I will take a test. Let him take the same test that I took.” Wallace then said that he took the test, too, when he heard Trump passed it, and it was not the “hardest test". “They have a picture and it says ‘what’s that' and it’s an elephant,” Wallace said. Trump then went on to suggest that the last few questions got "very hard".
“Well, one of them was count back from 100 by seven,” Wallace said.
“Let me tell you…” Trump said.
“Ninety-three,” Wallace responded.
Trump then said, “You couldn’t answer many of the questions.”
Now, a new viral video featuring the exchange has been put out by MeidasTouch, an American political action committee formed in March 2020. MeidasTouch was formed with the purpose to stop the reelection of Trump in the 2020 presidential election. Since its formation, the committee has released multiple videos criticizing the Trump administration. Featuring the tag #Unpresidentedidiot, the video went viral as many took to the internet to express their displeasure with the president.
One user tweeted, "I say this with absolute seriousness: Donald Trump is one of the dumbest people to ever live. Even if he weren’t a criminal, or a racist, or a 3-time adulterer, or a serial rapist and sexual predator, or a traitor, he’d still be an #UnpresidentedIdiot." Another wrote, "Still laughing over the fact that Trump was boasting that he could recognize an elephant image. #UnpresidentedIdiot."
Brett Meiselas who cofounded MeidasTouch tweeted, "I love that our new ad is literally just Trump’s answer to Chris Wallace’s question #UnpresidentedIdiot."
A user noted, "Trump paid to have someone else take his SAT. He once pondered nuking hurricanes. He also called the coronavirus a hoax. He then suggested Americans inject themselves with Lysol to cure the coronavirus. @realDonaldTrump is a real #UnpresidentedIdiot." Another tweeted, "There is only one reason why Trump would be trying to convince America that the easy cognitive test he took was actually hard: Because it was hard for him. #UnpresidentedIdiot."
Trump's interview with Wallace was filled with bizarre moments with Trump insisting that he's "not losing", when shown the Fox News poll that showed Trump losing by eight points to Biden as the president insisted they were "fake polls". When asked if he would accept the results of the November election if he comes out as the loser, Trump said, “I have to see. Look… I have to see. No, I’m not going to just say yes. I’m not going to say no, and I didn’t last time either.”
